Current Release: SHESUS

Describe your current release in two sentences?

Shesus is a futuristic satirical adventure story that takes a look at where our planet is heading if we're not mindful. It's the Lorax meets Willy Wonka meets Logans Run for Tweens and up!

What are you working on?

I just finished acting in a TV pilot with Rosannah Arquette that's that's really hilarious. Also, Daryl Hannah and I are working on getting SHESUS made into a movie, with her directing!

Getting a book to market often takes a village. Who has helped you on the way?

My friends really encouraged me to write, my boyfriend helped me stay in front of the computer with candy as incentive and a 90 year old psychic Annie whose an ex-Vegas showgirl predicted that I would write this book and it would be a huge success! She really got me going!

Do you have a favorite or interesting reader meet moment?

The new illustrated version of SHESUS that's out now with a forward by Daryl Hannah has a beautiful cover and spot on drawings of all the characters by a 23-year-old guy from Brazil named Quihoma Isaacs that I've never met and who doesn't speak a word of English! He is a huge fan of Daryl's and mine and managed to capture the essence of SHESUS without being able to read it! He sent me the drawings and I was so blown away I had to reissue the book with them in it!

What is your favorite way to procrastinate?

I'm the best procrastinator around! If I have I'm supposed to sit down and write, all of a sudden I realize I have to knit that sweater for my baby cousin that's arriving 6 months from now. Better get on that!

I want to thank all my readers for their incredible feedback and fan art! I love to hear from you guys so please check out my website www.shesusthebook.com and email me at hilary@shesusthebook.com
