And then, one day, the telephone rings. Noelle is alive. And maybe, just maybe, Tess can start to live again, too.
A haunting psychological thriller taken straight from the headlines, The Tension of Opposites is a striking debut that explores the emotional aftermath a kidnapping can have on the victim, and on the people she left behind.

Final word count: 70,000 ish (I’m “ishy” because the most final version I have on the computer is riddled with comments from several copy editors.)
1. The Tension of Opposites is your first published novel, but is it the first you've written? If not, how many did you write prior to it?
2. How did the idea for The Tension of Opposites come to you? (i.e. a single image, a key scene, a song, etc) What was it?
4. How long did it take you to find an agent after you finished writing the book? How many rejections did you receive?
5. How was representation finally offered to you?
Last summer, after eleven months of revision with my agent, I received three offers on the manuscript. From real, live editors that work at actual publishing houses. And then, there was an auction. Squee! I made it!
7. What are you working on now?
