» I just wanted to start with how absolutely awesome the Virals series is. It’s absolutely wonderful and I (may or may not) cry every time I read Terminal. Ok, anyways, I wanted to ask if Tori and Ben ever get married, and, if so, if Cooper would be the ring bearer. (Weird question, I know, but I ship Tori and Ben so hard and felt compelled to ask.) Also, (although I’m sure you’re probably sick of hearing this question) will Virals ever become a movie/TV series? Thank you!

asked by Abigail B from USA

My response:

I can’t tell the future, but I like this idea. Cooper would definitely have a role in the wedding for sure. How could he not? No TV or movie yet, but keep those fingers crossed!

» Hi, so I don’t really know how to start this but basically one day I was prowling through the library (like you do) and I saw a book that looked interesting. I borrowed it and was immediately hooked. I finished the book that same day. I then went to the library and borrowed the rest of the series (that was out at the time) and loved it. The book was called Virals. I recommended it to my friend and she too adored it. “Not only was the soryline the best,” she said “but it also contained my fave OTP (Tory and Ben, of course). And, frankly, I couldn’t agree more. For her birthday that year I bought her the newly released ‘Terminal’ unable to avoid the temptation to get one for myself too. I can’t say that I’ve finished the whole series; truth is I’m putting it off so it doesn’t end! Anyway, moving on to my question, I’m one of those (actually scratch that the only) person(s) who likes to imagine the author writing the book, and so I was wondering who does more of the writing, you or Kathy? I’d just like to say thanks again for introducing me to my fave OTP.

asked by Minahil Ahmad from London

My response:

I write the drafts, then Kathy edits me, so that’s how we divide the work. I’m glad you liked the books. Now finish them!

» Will Trace Evidence take place after Terminal or before it? And if it is before Terminal will you be making a book for after Terminal?

asked by Joshua from USA

My response:

Spike, in Trace Evidence, is set after Terminal, and answers the open question! The other three stories – Shift, Swipe, and Shock, take place before Terminal.

» Hi you have answered one of my questions before and I thought it was amazing because people don’t normally acknowledge me. In the response you told me about the collected ebook story Trace Evidence and about Nemisis. I bought Trace Evidence yesterday and I have finished it already and I was wondering when Nemisis is out and what its about also there has been a lot of questions about a movie and how you would like one if there is a movie. I was wondering however if the character Tory would ever appear in one of the Bones episodes because I have grown up watching Bones and other tv series like that which is what has inspired me along with the virals series to want to become a forensic scientist/ anthropologist. I want to say that you are an amazing author and I love your books they are something that I can read over and over again and never get tired off.

asked by Alyssa Carter from Burton-Upon-Trent

My response:

I LOVE answering questions from fans like you. Nemesis will be out in Spring 2017 and all the details will be on this site when I have them. No Virals movie yet, sadly. Tory might not get into Bones because it’s been running so long, but that would be great, right? Thanks so much for reading!

» Not a question but, I’m 32 and I absolutely adore the virals books. I got in to them totally by accident. I’d run out of books to read so was searching Amazon and came across the first book, saw “Kathy Reichs” and thought it was a temperance Brennan book that id missed so I ordered it. Obviously, as soon as I started reading it I realised it wasn’t but as I had nothing else to read (I’m a total bookworm) I thought I’d carry on and within the first chapter I was hooked!! I them bought the rest that were out and read them and waited (not very patiently) for Terminal to be released (pre-ordered of course), by which time is also got my son, who’s 12 next week, reading them. He does not enjoy reading actual story books. He will sit and read an atlas for hours on end or an encyclopaedia of sharks/dinosaurs/bugs etc but not big on story books (fiction or nonfiction) but the virals books have also hooked him. He sat and read the first one from cover to cover in a day and so then he was also waiting for Terminal to be released and then for me to read it. It was SO good, and then that ending . . . Wow!! I’m also now about to read the final story in Trace Evidence, loved the first three but I’m holding off reading the last one because I don’t want it to be over, lol. So, really, I’d just like to say, from my son and myself, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!! Don’t stop writing the virals books. We need more!!! Lots more, not just one (saw your reply to someone else that you’d write one more). PLEASE keep going, there’s SO many places, story wise, that you could go with the characters. Surely, all these comments from people about the virals makes you see how much we all adore the books. If enough fans beg you can we convince you to keep going?? What about a petition? Lol.

asked by Klaire Snowden from England

My response:

I love you, Klaire Snowden. My offer stands: If Nemesis hits the lists, I’ll write one more Virals book. Make it happen fans!

» I’m fourteen and I started reading virals when I was nine. This series changed my life I’ve always loved reading but your books have brought out a passion for books that I never knew I had. I just wanted to say thank you, your one of the writers I look up to I wish with all my heart that this series would never end but I guess all good things come to an end. Oh and I’m a die hard Ben supporter (: anyway my question is: how did you think of using that certain virus to infect Tory and her friends?

asked by Monique from New Zealand

My response:

NICEST EMAIL EVER. Thank you. We chose parvovirus because in 2009 my new puppy Turk actually caught it while I was planning the series, and adding this terrifying DNA twist just made all kinds of sense. Thankfully, Turk recovered as is fine now. And the rest is history!

» Hi!!!!!!!!! Okay, 2 things. 1: I know this is just going to be another “are you going to write anymore Virals books,” but can you blame me.THEY ARE THE BEST!!!!!! And 2: Are you going to be doing any book signings in New Jersey at all. Because I REALLY want to get all of my Virals books signed. Thanks!!!!!!!! And please please please respond.

asked by Chloe from NJ

My response:

I’ll make a deal with you guys: if you push NEMESIS to the bestseller list by pre-ordering it or buying it in its first week, I’ll write ONE MORE Virals book. But you have to get everyone to buy NEMESIS so it makes the list. Fair?

Sadly, the closest I’ll be to NJ this year is Charlotte. But maybe next year!
