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.

BLACK ICE Book Deal

I SHOULD WARN YOU THAT IT'S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT TO REFRAIN FROM TYPING THIS ENTIRE POST IN CAPS!

IT IS ALSO GOING TO BE HARD TO RESIST USING LOTS OF EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!!!!

But I will refrain and I will resist. Just know that my excitement level is way up there.

My wonderful agent sold another book to my editor. I am so deliriously happy to be writing again. I have been thinking about this book for a couple years now, but I pushed it to the back of the line while I wrote SILENCE and FINALE. It feels so satisfying to finally work on a project that has been floating around the back of my mind for so long!

I'm thrilled to announce my newest book, BLACK ICE, including a brief description:

BLACK ICE is a riveting stand-alone psychological thriller that takes place against the treacherous backdrop of the mountains of Wyoming. Seventeen-year-old Britt Pfeiffer has been training to backpack the crest of the Teton Range, but she isn't prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two occupants—who then take her hostage. In exchange for her life, Britt agrees to guide the men off the mountain. As they set off into the storm, Britt knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. But the task isn't as straightforward as it seems. Finding one chilling piece of evidence after another, Britt uncovers the truth about a series of murders that have taken place in the region…and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target. 

BLACK ICE is gritty and frightening, twisty and sexy. There's a touch of paranormal. The stakes are high and there is a definite case of it's-not-what-it-seems going on...

In other words, if you loved HUSH, HUSH, there is a good chance BLACK ICE will be right up your alley. 

A big thank-you to all of you for making this possible. I appreciate your support so much! I can't wait to share more BLACK ICE details soon.  I'm also grateful to my publisher and editor for championing my books and for being such a supportive, enthusiastic team.

ETA: There's a blurb for BLACK ICE in Entertainment Weekly's Shelf Life, how cool is that?! 

And now a pic of me with the contract for BLACK ICE. My husband is so cute. He's always saying, "We need to document this."




Finally, a tune that has put me in the mood to write BLACK ICE:
