The Vampire Diaries and More!

Hi Everyone!

Summer's been screaming by and I am, as usual, writing/writing/writing, but since a lot of people have asked me about my favorite books and television shows I thought I'd take just a minute and share! I'm currently working very hard on the next installment in the Forensic Mystery series (I'm having a blast!) entitled THE FORENSIC ACADEMY MURDERS, so I'm back to mining the 'gore' side of my brain. From ghosts to guts - what a transition!

Okay, so when I DO take a break, my first choice is to read, and I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed THE HUNGER GAMES and CATCHING FIRE by Suzanne Collins. If you want some fantastic books to finish off your summer, try those. Her newest one, MOCKINGJAY, will be out next week, and I've already got it pre-ordered.

Also, I have to confess that I am literally counting down the days until THE VAMPIRE DIARIES comes back for Season 2. September 9th can't get here fast enough for me - I'm a total Damon fan and think he is sooooo amazing as a character! So if you haven't seen THE VAMPIRE DIARIES before, I recommend you pop a huge bowl of popcorn and download the episodes from Amazon. Or wait just a few more days for the release of Season 1 on DVD, which I have have also pre-ordered. (I already purchased the downloaded episodes, so you can see how OCD I am about TVD). I promise by the last episode you'll be screaming at your flat-screen, just as I and a big group of friends did during our 'Last Episode' party! I also love GLEE (I am a huge Gleek) and THIRTY ROCK as well as GHOST HUNTERS. My favorite move I've seen lately is THE LIFE BEFORE HER EYES with Uma Thurman, which is an amazing film. Totally worth checking out! And my current favorite workout video is Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. (Although by the end of it I am calling her names!)

So - those are my favorite things to read/watch when I'm not lost in my Apple creating more trouble for Cameryn Mahoney! I'd love to hear some of your favorites, too. Hope your summer has been as wonderful as mine, and for those of you gearing up for school, have a fantastic start to your best year yet!

XO's from Colorado,

Alane Ferguson

Hey Alane!

I was counting the days to Vampire Diaries too after True Blood ended. :( but Damon is keeping my eye candy quota up. Besides he's dashing and clever, who wouldn't want "the bad boy brother?" Bones just started too, so I'm super excited to watch that. Have you watched Bones? Does it bug you all of their high-tech gadgets are fonybalony? Lol just writing and finishing up school I'm done in month!

HI, im a 13 year old girl. I just finished reading 'The christopher killer'. It's my favorite book! Well that's only my opinion, but i have to say, all the details kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read your other books!

-and i understand this is kind of a late post.

I know its a little late but i was just catching up on what is going on with the series and was sooo excited to find that you were writing a fifth book and wanted to know if the budding romance between Cammie and Justin was going to crash and burn (hope not) or become a bells are ringing kind of romance.

Also: Glee, Ncis, and House of Anubis are awesome

Ohhh, I can't tell, but the Justin/Cammie romance will be a BIG part of the next book. Stay tuned! I'm writing a scene with them right now, which is so much fun. Then I'm going to watch Being Human (I recorded it last night) to see how a vampire, werewolf and a ghost get on. I'm counting down to The Vampire Diaries and now I'm hooked on Supernatural - do you notice a theme here? All things that go 'bump' in the night! You gotta loved being just a wee bit scared!

Hi! I'm a 14 year old girl that just read "The Christopher Killer"! It was amazing! I loved it so much and I'm just finishing a project about it!

-sorry for the late post. Also is there any way I could contact you? I wanted to send you a letter. It was part of my project! :)
