My special guest today is author Parker Peevyhouse. She has been writing since she was young and is the proud winner of a writing contest held and judged by RL Stine. I’m a little bit jealous. Our interview dives into her writing process, how she comes up with the amazing and unique ideas for her novels, her journey to finding an agent which shows that sometimes third time’s the charm. Parker was a blast to have on the podcast.
An ARC of The Echo Room was given to me by NetGalley and I’m so glad it was. Here’s the blurb:
Parker Peevyhouse's The Echo Room is a smart, claustrophobic, speculative young adult thriller with an immersive psychological mystery.
The only thing worse than being locked in is facing what you locked out.
Rett Ward knows how to hide. He's had six years of practice at Walling Home, the state-run boarding school where he learned how to keep his head down to survive.
But when Rett wakes up locked in a small depot with no memory of how he got there, he can't hide. Not from the stranger in the next room. Or from the fact that there's someone else’s blood on his jumpsuit.
Worse, every time he tries to escape, he wakes up right back where he started. Same day, same stranger, same bloodstained jumpsuit.
As memories start to surface, Rett realizes that the logo on the walls is familiar, the stranger isn't a stranger, and the blood on his jumpsuit belongs to someone―or something―banging on the door to get in.
