1. Can you tell us anything about book 4 in the Riders of the Apocalypse series, BREATH?
JK: This is the final book in the series. It’s Death’s book. It answers the big unanswered questions raised in the earlier books, and then some. All of the Riders and their steeds are in it. BREATH hits the shelves mid-April 2013 (and for those of us in the US – of course it does, because the only two constants are death and taxes, right?), and I’ll be signing copies at the RT Booklovers Convention in May 2013. Hope to see you there!
2. What are some of your writing habits? Have you picked up any new ones over the years?
JK: One of my more annoying habits is I must have an opening sentence before I can start working on a story. I blame my tenth grade English teacher, who insisted that the most important part of any book was its first sentence.
3. If you were going out for Halloween this year, what would you go as?
JK: Actually, we’re going to Disney World for Halloween. We’re thinking of dressing up from Shrek. Maybe. Still have to figure it out!
4. Can you tell us 5 things people may not know about you?
JK: I’m just under five feet tall; I’m working toward my black belt in tae kwon do; I married the boy I’d been crushing on since I was 15; I firmly believe that chocolate should be its own food group; I am a new fan of Supernatural.

Series: Riders of the Apocalypse, #4
Contrary to popular belief, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse aren’t just harbingers of doom—they actually keep life in balance. But what happens when their leader and creator, Death, becomes suicidal?
Before the first living thing drew its first gasping breath, he was there. He has watched humanity for millennia. And he has finally decided that humanity is not worth the price he has paid time and again. When Death himself gives up on life, a teenager named Xander Atwood is the world’s only hope. But Xander bears a secret, one that may bring about the end of everything.
This heart-pounding final installment of the Riders of the Apocalypse series looks at the value of life, the strength of love, and how a small voice can change everything . . . forever.
