Thanks so much to author Ilsa J. Bick for doing this awesome, hilarious interview with me about how she got started in writing, YA books, cats, sleep-deprivation, how much we hate tiny book lights, classroom libraries, Star Trek, Audible, and anything else you ever wanted to know about the author of Ashes and Shadows.
Synopsis for Ashes:
It could happen tomorrow....
An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device, wiping out every computerized system, and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom, a young soldier, and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it's now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.
Author Ilsa J. Bick crafts a terrifying and thrilling novel about a world that could be ours at any moment, where those left standing must learn what it means not just to survive, but to live amidst the devastation.
