Meet Haunting The Deep!

 
The Titanic meets the delicious horror of Ransom Riggs and the sass of Mean Girls in this follow-up to the #1 New York Times bestseller How to Hang a Witch, in which a contemporary teen finds herself a passenger on the famous “ship of dreams”—a story made all the more fascinating because the author’s own relatives survived the doomed voyage. 
  
Samantha Mather knew her family’s connection to the infamous Salem Witch Trials might pose obstacles to an active social life. But having survived one curse, she never thought she’d find herself at the center of a new one. 
  
This time, Sam is having recurring dreams about the Titanic . . . where she’s been walking the deck with first-class passengers, like her aunt and uncle. Meanwhile, in Sam’s waking life, strange missives from the Titanic have been finding their way to her, along with haunting visions of people who went down with the ship. 
  
Ultimately, Sam and the Descendants, along with some help from heartthrob Elijah, must unravel who is behind the spell that is drawing her ever further into the dream ship . . . and closer to sharing the same grim fate as its ghostly passengers.

~ Interview for Teen Read Week ~

 

 

YABC:  What do you love most about the YA genre?

In my opinion, we all spend our lives finding ourselves and figuring out what works, and YA perfectly encapsulates what is magical about that experience and what is terrifying.

 

YABC:  Which social media site do you wish had been available to you as a teen and why?

Instagram! I went through a full rage of styles as a teen – from a mohawk to blonde and I wish I had more of it documented in pictures.

 

YABC:  What advice would you give teens who might want to be a writer?

The very best thing you can do is commit to your stories and enjoy them. Don’t worry about them being good (my first drafts are a nightmare and a half). Stories really start to shine in the revisions – like it says in the Little Prince: “It’s the time you spent on your rose that makes your rose so important.”
