Kristen Orlando's debut You Don't Know My Name is a captivating and page-turning YA thriller that follows 17-year-old trained assassin Reagan Elizabeth Hillis as she struggles to choose between a life she was born into and a love she can't turn away from. Ms. Orlando was kind enough to answer some of CrimeHQ's questions about her new teenage assassin, her favorite crime/mystery novels, and her debut novel!


Tell us about some of your favorite crime and mystery series, both YA and adult.

I love a good mystery, and I’m a huge fan of all things Sara Shepard. I think she’s an absolutely amazing plotter, and I have always really enjoyed her books—especially the Pretty Little Liars series. I also absolutely love Gillian Flynn. I cannot put down her books. I tore my way through Gone Girl, but I think Sharp Objects may be my absolute favorite. Her plots are so twisty-turny, and she’s just a fantastic writer.
