I am Anda, and the lake is my mother. I am the November storms that terrify sailors and sink ships. With their deaths, I keep my little island on Lake Superior alive.

Hector has come here to hide from his family until he turns eighteen. Isle Royale is shut down for the winter, and there’s no one here but me. And now him.

Hector is running from the violence in his life, but violence runs through my veins. I should send him away, to keep him safe. But I’m half human, too, and Hector makes me want to listen to my foolish, half-human heart. And if I do, I can’t protect him from the storms coming for us.

Thanks so much for taking the time and spending time with us here at Chapter by Chapter!

 

 

Describe your book in 140 characters or less (like a Tweet)

He’s running from violence; she has violence running through her veins. Each thinks they can hide, but November is coming—and they won’t leave unscathed.

 

 

What was your inspiration for writing this book?  Was it in a dream? A thought while taking a walk?

I I’ve been obsessed with Lake Superior and this old song called The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, which told of a ship that sunk from a vicious November storm, called a witch. I knew someday I’d write a story that centered on the Lake and those storms, but the idea only came to me recently.

 

 

Tell us about the main character(s).

Anda is half lake, half human and responsible for sinking ships on Lake Superior every November. Hector is a biracial boy running from violence in his home, hoping to escape and hide out on the island until he turns 18, in the spring.

 

 

Do you have a favorite quote or specific part in the book that you really love?

“I could really dig a fairy tale right now.” –Hector

 

 

Was there a specific part in the book that you had an especially difficult time writing?  If so, why?

The ending! It changed several times, but I think the way it finally ended up was really the best!

 

 

What sort of projects do you have going on right now.  Any new books coming out?

TOXIC, which is my next book with Entangled Teen. It’s a space opera, in which A Korean girl wakes up to find herself the last person on a bioship about to die—and the mercenary boy doomed to perish on it for his last mission.

 

 

It was great having you on the blog today!  We hope you’ll decide to stop by again someday, and we wish you much success!!

Thank you so much for having me!
