Why do you choose a woman like the spirit of change?
Meira’s spirit was who I wanted to be as a teen—someone stubborn and loyal and strong, who knew what she wanted and would fight for it. In some ways I still hope I’m like her!
When you go to a library, you can find many (many) young adults books and similar kind of stories. Every single week, at least, the publishers publish new material for the readers. What is makes “Snow like ashes” different?
I think that varies reader to reader, depending on what they most took away from the story. And while there are a TON of YA books out now, I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing—for every book, there is a reader, so I just hope SLA finds its way into the hands of readers who most need it!
That question could be sounds like a cliché, but I need to ask you, why a universe based on seasons? I love that idea.
I loved the idea of making spring “evil” and winter “good”—once I had that, the other seasons just sort of fell into place!

I’m currently editing my next series, a YA pirate fantasy coming soon!
