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.

SILENCE Contest Winners!

Hey there -

First off, before I announce the winners of the Name-This-Character contest, I want to say again how fun (and stressful, but in a good way!) this contest was for me. So many creative names were submitted by YOU, and I mentioned more than once on Twitter just how difficult it was for me to narrow it down to one name. I've never been a very decisive person, so trust me, selecting a winner was excruciatingly difficult. I wish I could have somehow picked every entry as the winning entry, but obviously that just wasn't possible. However...I did pick two winners. Yikes! That was unexpected. But good, right? :)

I won't make you wait any longer. The winning character names are...drumroll...

and

Tono Grantham, submitted by Valentine B.

Congrats to the winners, and thanks for helping me christen these two characters!

Thank you again for being such great fans. You guys have been so supportive from the beginning, and so fun to write for. Hopefully I'll have another contest like this in the future. More opportunities for me to be decisive, right?

-Becca

So excited for you guys to see the roles Dante and Tono play!

Love the names - do they have any fallen Angelic meaning? I guess Dante is from Dantes Inferno - which is about Hell so that's a nice twist for a Nephilim name - perhaps they are going to try to send Patch to Hell!
