What was my favorite part of writing about Lacey? About Grant?
Lacey’s story allowed me to write about so many
different kinds of relationships. She doted on her brother. She mourned the
loss of one friendship and enjoyed the renewal of another. She found warmth
with her friend Eli and something more with Grant. Mostly, though, she gave me
the chance to explore the pain, exasperation, and love that can exist between
mother and daughter.
Grant’s job, as a supernatural being, is to try to
understand humans. He is so logical—almost Spock-like—that it became really fun
to see human emotions through his eyes.
