Ten Odd Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Serena Chase, author of THE RYN and THE REMEDY

10. I use turn signals religiously. One of my pet peeves is when I am a passenger and “someone” wants to change lanes, but doesn’t signal—especially if said “someone” proceeds to become irritated at the other drivers because they didn’t read his mind, deduce his lane-changing desire, and let him in.

9. I am one of the few people alive who can, even with the best of intentions, manage to kill a mature Aloe Vera plant. And I’ve proven it more than once. (Sorry, Grandpa.)

3. I know all the words to “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” but I can only sing the alto part.
