Claire Zorn | One would think the deep 

"I don't think there is any better place to learn about people than in the pages of a novel. As a writer I am constantly digging at what it is that drives people to do the things they do and feel the things they feel. It's this stuff which makes writing for and about young adults so rewarding. Teenagers are at the point where they stop accepting the world as it is and start questioning it. I feel very privileged to have my books be a part of this process." Claire Zorn
