I've been tagged by the amazing Catherine Stine for the Next Big Thing. Thanks, Catherine! So here I go!
What's the working title of your book?
INTO THE FIRE
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I've loved the idea of Phoenixes ever since I saw the original Dark Shadows TV series from the 70s. (I saw it in reruns.) There were only about two episodes that featured Phoenixes but they got to me.
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?
I'd say Candice Accola (Caroline on The Vampire Diaries) for Cara. And Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) for Logan.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Sixteen-year-old Cara Tillman, a descendant from the mythical phoenix bird, is nearing her rebirth where she will forget everything, including the love of her life, Logan, and attempts to embrace her last days with him even if it means drawing deadly phoenix hunters to her doorstep.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I'm represented by Lauren Hammond of ADA Management and the book is being published by Month9Books in spring 2014.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
8 days, but I made a major change in edits so I'm rewriting most of it. LOL
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I can't think of another Phoenix book!
What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
Phoenixes! They die and are reborn. What more do you need? ;)

Now for all of you, what's your WIP about?
