She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her dog Maximus.

Reviews

"Whitcomb writes with a grace that befits Helen's more modulated world while depicting contemporary society with sharp insight. In the subgenre of dead-narrator tales, this book shows the engaging possibilities of immortality-complete with a twist at the end that wholly satisfies." --School Library Journal School Library Journal "A highly senual, supernatural story of two spirits caught in purgatory. . . . Mesmerizing." --Publishers Weekly "Whitcomb is generous with atmospheric detail . . . and she creatively pulls together a dramatic and compelling plot that cleverly grants rebellious teen romance a timeless grandeur." --The Bulletin Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "[An] original, opinionated, sexy, and romantic novel of the afterlife." --Horn Book "Whitcomb writes beautifully . . . this will be irresistible to teens." --Booklist Booklist, ALA --
