Frequently Asked Questions

When is your book coming out?

September 23, 2014! That's a Tuesday, by the way.


Can I preorder it?

Sure can! You can find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local independent bookstore (via IndieBound!)


Will there be a sequel?

SALT & STORM is a stand-alone story, so there will not be a sequel. There will, however, be a companion novel set in the same world and featuring some familiar faces...


Where do you get your ideas?

Going for walks, falling asleep, making dinner, watching movies, reading books. Takes all kinds, really. The idea for SALT & STORM came to me because I wanted to write a book set on an island and the only island I knew much of anything about is Martha's Vineyard, which has a rich history of whaling. I started researching New England folklore, stumbled across stories of witch women who would sell good luck charms to whale men, and the story pretty much jumped off from there.


Will you be at any upcoming conferences?

Yes! Look for me at ALA Las Vegas this June. I'll be at the Little, Brown booth and/or wandering aimlessly, stunned into silence by all the amazing books.
