The trailer for THE TRAITOR’S GAME will appear on my website soon and on YouTube, but for now, it gets to debut in a most exciting place – Entertainment Weekly! Please click through to watch it, then tell your friends to click through and watch it and then if you like it, come back and tell me what you think! (Okay, even if you didn’t like it, you can still come back and tell me.) Most exciting to me is that the trailer was done almost entirely by my family, and every one of them played a role.

The title says it all. I’ll go in reverse chronological order…   What are you writing now? I am about to start edits on TRAITOR’S GAME 2, a book which I think is the perfect follow-up for the first and really pushes the story, and Simon and Kestra, into really exciting places.
