One of the exciting things about creating and writing Persia Blues is that I get to share some of the history and culture of my birthplace, Iran. I wanted to weave this into the fabric of the story, from Minoo’s childhood all the way through adulthood. And even beyond, when her life’s journey brings her […]

Filed under NBM Blog, New Releases

This shouldn’t surprise anyone, really. After all, Noel and I already did a book about an alien attack without any aliens in it. The Broadcast was a character-driven thriller about families in rural America and how they might react to an alien invasion. The aliens (or lack thereof) were just a catalyst for the story […]
