Amy Kathleen Ryan

Dear Librarian:

In space, there's no one to call for help. If your ship is damaged, you have to fix it. If you're taken from your family, it's up to you to escape. When I started writing The Sky Chasers, I didn't know I was embarking on a saga. I started out trying to imagine life on a farming vessel in deep space, but realized this was the perfect setting for a thriller.

Themes of friendship versus belief, and truth versus lies run deep in Glow, Spark, and FLAME. A book group discussion can range into topics about political power, personal belief, and the difficulty of remaining moral in the face of destruction.

I love talking about this stuff! Email me through to set up a free Skype session with your book group, and to enter a giveaway for one of five hardcover sets.
