Author Laurie Faria Stolarz stopped by today to answer a few questions for me and to share some details about her latest novel, Deadly Little Lessons —including a chapter excerpt!
First, the questions:
LFS: Probably Molly Ringwald, but less popular. Wasn’t she described as super-popular in that movie? I wasn’t a loner like Ally Sheedy. I had a solid group of friends, and could blend in with different groups.
Without giving away too much from your newest book, which character or scene from it are you the most pleased to have created, and why?
Camelia Hammond’s trying junior year of high school is finally over…but her troubles aren’t. After she discovers a painful truth about her family, she escapes to a summer arts program in Rhode Island.
Determined to put family – and boyfriend – drama behind her, she throws herself into her artwork. At the arts school, she gets caught up in the case of Sasha Beckerman, a local girl who is missing. Even though all signs suggest that the teen ran away, Camelia senses otherwise. Eager to help the girl, she launches her own investigation. Meanwhile, Camelia realizes how much she misses Ben, despite being committed to Adam.
But time is running out for Sasha, and Camelia will have to trust her powers if she’s to save her. Will the lessons Camelia has learned in the past give her the strength to do so?
