About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

Coming Soon: HUSH HUSH The Graphic Novel

Becca is extremely excited to announce that HUSH HUSH will be published as a graphic novel... this year!! Here are some snippets from The official press release.

Sea Lion Books announced today the acquisition of the comic book and graphic novel rights to Becca Fitzpatrick's New York Times bestselling Young Adult novel Hush, Hush. .....

.....Becca Fitzpatrick is delighted to have her book brought to graphic novel form. "Hush, Hush was my first book, and it's so thrilling that it has been embraced by so many readers. I'm delighted to be working with Sea Lion to tell Patch and Nora's story through graphic novel format!"

Sea Lion Books shares the delight in working alongside the bestselling author on the adaptation, and feels that Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush series is a fantastic addition to its graphic novel line. Hush, Hush #1 is scheduled to debut in winter 2011.

I'm sure Becca will post her thoughts about this once she gets back home from her trip to France and Italy and has a chance to get settled in. But I can tell you, she is very excited about working with Sea Lion and can't wait to see Patch & Nora on the pages of a graphic novel!

Video Interview With My UK Publisher

I am taking a tiny little break from editing SILENCE for my very first post on my brand new blog! (I hope you like it.)

My UK publisher Simon & Schuster UK has posted a video interview with me. I talk about my UK CRESCENDO Tour and a little about the process of writing HUSH HUSH.
