Secret Circle by LJ Smith
The sequel to The Ultimate Sacrifice should be coming out in March. Right now it’s in my editor’s hands. The sequel is something the fans asked for and I hope they are pleased with what happens in the book. It’s about a group of ‘gifted’ teens and by gifted, I mean they can do special things. Kassia is the main character and she is a mind-blower.
I am also co-writing another book with Julia Crane. Our first book was about a teen succubus, this book is going to be about a teen who finds out she’s a fairy.
After that, I will most likely go back to writing some non-paranormal books. I’m hoping to write one about cutting this year.
What group did you hang out with in high school?
LOL! We were outcasts. A group of misfits. Most of the school just saw us as troublemakers, but many of us received good grades, had good relationships with our teachers, and had the best friends anyone could ask for. So, I think we were lucky.
If you could apologize to someone in your past, who would it be?
My grandmother. I didn’t appreciate her as much as I should have. She died a long time ago and I’d give anything to have her back for just a day so I could talk to her and learn from her.
Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?
There are so many places I’d like to go! It’s hard to choose just one. I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii. It seems like a perfect place to write, but I’m not sure I’d write about anyone from there. There’s a bunch of countries in Europe I’d like to visit including Ireland, Greece, and Italy. I could definitely see writing about families that come from those countries. In fact, Teagan’s family came from Ireland. It would be nice to see the countryside in person.
