阿兰·弗格森(Alane Ferguson)名言

One of the biggest challenges of writing for middle-grade or even young-adult readers is that I don't want to have too much violence in it - which really limits what you can do. It's important that they're not just bloodbaths or glorifying violence. I always try to show that a person who dies leaves a hole. There's grief in my books.

为中年级甚至年轻的成人读者写作的最大挑战之一是我不想在里面有太多的暴力——这真的限制了你的能力。重要的是,他们不只是大屠杀或美化暴力。我总是试图证明一个死去的人会留下一个洞。我的书中有悲伤。

What would you have if you didn't have a murder in a mystery? You'd have something for the lower-level readers. When you get up into the upper levels, there's nothing that will engage you or compel you or get your emotions churning like a murder. It's the ultimate stakes.

如果你没有一个神秘的谋杀案你会怎样?你会有一些东西给低层次的读者。当你上升到更高的层次,没有什么会吸引你或强迫你或让你的情绪像谋杀一样翻腾。这是最终的赌注。

I'm really connected to people, and my relationships with people are paramount, so I write about relationships, particularly strong female ones. In my family, there were six girls born in five years. We were best friends. And my parents raised all of us as first-class citizens.

我真的和人有联系,我和人的关系是最重要的,所以我写关系,特别是强烈的女性关系。我家五年生了六个女孩。我们是最好的朋友。我父母把我们都培养成一等公民。
