The Fix is officially launching September 1st, but is already available for purchase. I'm thrilled to share a Q&A with Natasha as this week's Friday Five.
What was your inspiration for writing The Fix?
The Fix is your debut! Is it the first novel you’ve written?
The Fix covers some difficult topics. Did you ever find yourself censoring scenes that you wanted to portray?
What’s the most frustrating part of writing for you?
What have you learned about writing over time that you wish you knew earlier? And what advice would you give to other writers?
More about The Fix
Seventeen-year-old Macy Lyons has been through something no one should ever have to experience. And she’s dealt with it entirely alone.
On the outside, she’s got it pretty good. Her family’s well-off, she’s dating the cute boy next door, she has plenty of friends, and although she long ago wrote her mother off as a superficial gym rat, she’s thankful to have allies in her loving, laid-back dad and her younger brother.
But a conversation with a boy at a party one night shakes Macy out of the carefully maintained complacency that has defined her life so far. The boy is Sebastian Ruiz, a recovering addict who recognizes that Macy is hardened by dark secrets. And as Macy falls for Sebastian, she realizes that, while revealing her secret could ruin her seemingly perfect family, keeping silent might just destroy her.
The Fix follows two good-hearted teenagers coming to terms with the cards they were dealt. It’s also about the fixes we rely on to cope with our most shameful secrets and the hope and fear that comes with meeting someone who challenges us to come clean.
