Meet Fragments Of The Lost!

Jessa Whitworth knew she didn’t belong in her ex-boyfriend Caleb’s room. But she couldn’t deny that she was everywhere—in his photos, his neatly folded T-shirts, even the butterfly necklace in his jeans pocket…the one she gave him for safe keeping on that day.


His mother asked her to pack up his things—even though she blames Jessa for his accident. How could she say no? And maybe, just maybe, it will help her work through the guilt she feels about their final moments together.


But as Jessa begins to box up the pieces of Caleb’s life, they trigger memories that make Jessa realize their past relationship may not be exactly as she remembered. And she starts to question whether she really knew Caleb at all.


Each fragment of his life reveals a new clue that propels Jessa to search for the truth about Caleb’s accident. What really happened on the storm-swept bridge?

YABC:   What gave you the inspiration to write this book?

We moved a few years ago and went through the process of cleaning out our house, deciding what could be tossed and what we needed to keep. But somewhere in the moving chaos, we left a couple of boxes behind in a storage unit for almost a year. Going through these boxes gave me the spark of the idea for FRAGMENTS OF THE LOST, wondering what sort of story you could tell from the memories of objects left behind.

 

 

YABC:   Who is your favorite character in the book?

The main character is usually always my favorite—I really enjoy uncovering their strengths, and watching as they come into their own. But other than Jessa, I’d say Max is my other favorite character, especially as seen through Jessa’s point of view.

 

 

YABC:   Which came first, the title or the novel?

This is one of the very rare times for me when the title came before the book was finished. Usually, I don’t find the right title until I’m well into revisions (or later), but FRAGMENTS OF THE LOST came to me at the same moment I thought up the idea.

 

 

YABC:   What scene in the book are you most proud of, and why?

There’s a scene titled “His Glasses” that I’m particularly proud of, because I think it captures that moment of falling, for Jessa. It’s an important memory for her, but it’s also a pivotal moment in the present mystery, so it had to bridge the conflicted feeling in the past and the present.

 

 

YABC:   Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you've learned as a writer from then to now?

Not to fear failure. Sometimes ideas don’t come together in the first, or second (or eighth) draft. But each of those drafts gets you closer to where you need to be.

 

 

 

YABC:   What do you like most about the cover of the book?

I love how much the cover captures not only the mood of the book, but a significant moment. And, depending on your perspective, it could also be capturing more than one significant moment.

 

 

YABC:   What’s up next for you?

I have two new books currently in the works—one young adult, and one adult—and I hope to share more details about them soon!

 

 

YABC:    Which was the most difficult or emotional scene to narrate?

The earlier scenes in the book were the most difficult to write because Jessa’s grief was still so raw, and I find I have to channel those same feelings to write authentically.

 

 

YABC:   Which character gave you the most trouble when writing your latest book?

Caleb. Jessa was remembering him with each fragment she uncovers, and her understanding of him shifts as the story progresses. In that way, he was always walking the line between two different versions of himself—showing the part he wanted others to see.

 

 

 

YABC:    Which part of the writing process do you enjoy more: Drafting or Revising?

Usually I love drafting, because it’s the most exciting part for me, discovering the story. But I have come to really appreciate the revising part, focusing on the heart of the story, and watching the book take shape around it.

 

 

YABC:   What would you say is your superpower?

The ability to hear literally everything in the middle of the night, especially if I’m trying to sleep.
