” And then writing, it was like I just found it, you know? Like you just found your favorite flavor of ice cream, all of a sudden there it is. ‘This is what I should have been doing for the last thirty years. What was I thinking?’ So I was, then I was in and then I had to just keep going with it. “


” I don’t want to be a vampire. A lot of other people do and I think it’s that dual nature – we have, you know, terrifying/intriguing. “


” That actually is one of my huge challenges right now because I write best at night, no question. I can focus. You know you’re not getting any phone calls, I can shut everything down, and I’m just more creative at night. “


” Sometimes ideas feel like they were already there, and that you’re just discovering them. “


” Becoming a vampire is forever. You don’t get to change your mind about it later. For me, I think that’s one of the big drawbacks with anything that’s permanent. How do you know how you’re going to feel in five years or 10 years? Even with a tattoo. “


” Vampirism, for me, was a way to live in fantasy and have superpowers, but not just in a really perfect, happy, everything is great way. It’s superpowers with a cost. It’s having to be the villain, and what do you do about that. “

” It’s easier to come up with new stories than it is to finish the ones you already have. I think every author would feel that way. “


” It’s sad when you can’t make everyone happy, though. It’s impossible but, at the same time, you still hope. You think, ‘Maybe I can do it,’ but you know you can’t. But gosh, if I had to rely on giving people what they wanted, I would have had to write 40 billion different books and even then, I wouldn’t get it right. “


” Maybe it’s because I’m a little naive, but I do like to think that there aren’t really very many truly bad people in the world. I think that everybody has their reasons for what they do, and if you really look through their eyes, you could probably understand them. “


” It’s important for me to be free and know I’m acting for myself. I do things because I want to, and that’s important. You want to be your own person. “
