After pumping gas for nine years to put himself through college, Dan Krokos, now twenty-seven, dropped out to write full-time. He is currently hard at work on three separate projects: the final stop for Miranda North in the False Memory series, the next adventure for thirteen-year-old Mason Stark in The Planet Thieves series, and his first adult thriller.
All of Dan’s books have been optioned for film or television, and False Memory recently won the International Thriller Writer’s Award for best Young Adult book. He enjoys watching TV, playing MMORPGs, and drinking coffee.
FALSE SIGHT, the 2nd book in the False series (after FALSE MEMORY), just came out in August, and Dan was kind enough to answer a few of my questions!

Dan Krokos: False Sight picks up a few months after False Memory. Miranda and her team are trying, and failing, to live normal lives. After Miranda gets in trouble at school, the team plans to move on. Until one of them suddenly goes rogue, killing another member of the team. Now Miranda has to figure out why, and stop what’s coming next.
