David confronts his desires and his demons in this novel about what it means to be left behind—literally, figuratively, and spiritually—from the author of the Shade trilogy.

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. It would be cool to be a cat for a while. I’d get to stay up all night, see in the dark, get fed and petted for doing pretty much nothing.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Singing. I have a strong voice but am terrible at staying on-key. Which is a really bad combination, because it means I’m loud and painful.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. This is hard, because I love villains. I often root for them if they’re more interesting than the hero. The first ones who come to mind are David Bowie’s Goblin King from LABYRINTH, and the Phantom from PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. They were so fascinating and tempting and offered such magic.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. It’s SO hard to say, but here’s what first came to mind: “Inside Out” by Eve 6, “Aneurysm” by Nirvana, “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, “Aly Walk with Me” by the Raveonettes, and “Holiday” by Green Day.
