What kind of research did you do for the book, and what is your writing process like?
What’s one of the first things that you can remember writing?
I wrote a ton of book reports and the like throughout my school years but I can’t remember a single one of them. I guess I’ve written too many news stories since.
What authors have influenced you the most?
If you could experience one book again for the first time, which one would it be?
One Hundred Years of Solitude. It carried me away like no other book has.
What are you currently reading?
I’ve temporarily stopped reading. But when I start up again, I need to finish Who Owns the Future? by Jaron Lanier and then pick up Flash Boys by Michael Lewis.
What’s next for you? Is there anything else you’d like to share?
I have five ideas for the next novel floating around in my head. Too many choices!
Circles is the most popular social network in the world: vast, ubiquitous, and constantly evolving. Days before expanding into China, Circles suffers a devastating cyberattack—and a key executive is brutally murdered.
As he fights to save the company he helped build, top engineer Sergio Mansour uncovers evidence of a massive conspiracy that turns the power of Circles against its users. But as Sergio investigates, someone is watching his every move—someone ruthless enough to brand him a criminal and set a vicious hit man on his trail.
Desperate to clear his name, Sergio turns to Malina Olson, a beautiful and headstrong doctor who has an agenda of her own. Now, he and Malina must survive long enough to expose the truth in a world without hiding places, where a single keystroke can shift the global balance of power.
