Hi, I'm so excited (as are many other people) that you are visiting Random Buzzers. I haven't read many of your books... well, I've only read one, The Boyfriend List. I was at Borders and needed something to read, and thats what it was, I'm gonna have to say it was the frogs. It has become on of my favorite books, I think it's very easy to relate to Ruby, I mean stuff like that doesn't happen all at once like that, but everyone has had some sort of problem that Ruby goes through. Which brings me to my questions:
1) What inspired you to write the Ruby Oliver series?
2) Do you use any personal experiences in Ruby's life?
3) Are any of the "boyfriends," or anyone in the book really, based on real people?
Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of someone else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something.
When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it's not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.
Sometimes you just have to smile, pretend everythings okay, hold back the tears and walk away.
It was nice to be alone, not to have to smile and look pleased; a relief to stare dejectedly out the window at the sheeting rain and let just a few tears escape.
I couldn't see his face, just his back as he walked away from me, leaving me in blackness. No matter how fast I ran, I couldn't catch up to him.
Today I shall be witty, charming and elegant.~~~~Or maybe I'll say "um" a lot and trip over things.
When someone says: 'It's not you, it's me,' it really is you, and if you believe otherwise, you're just in denial.
And so the lion fell in love with the lamb. What a stupid lamb. What a sick, masochistic lion.
Girls are like phones. We love to be held and talked to but if you press the wrong button... you'll be disconnected.
Ditching is healthy...until you get caught...
Jack: ... You must do me this honor, Rose. Promise me you'll survive. That you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.
Rose: I promise.
Jack: Never let go.
Rose: I'll never let go. I'll never let go, Jack.
Attention is never a good thing, as any other accident-prone klutz would agree. No one wants a spotlight when they're likely to fall on their face.
*Lana Lang*--I was going to wait to talk to you in person...but I knew that if I looked into your eyes I'd never be able to say it. We thought we were meant to be together, Clark...but the truth is, we were fooling ourselves. I need you... but the world needs you more. And as long as I'm in your life, I am holding you back. Please, don't come after me. I love you, Clark. More than you will ever know.
