About the Author
You can thank A.C.’s first grade teacher for the interest in writing fiction. It was her casual comment on a mandatory daily journal, wherein she noted A.C.’s flair for storytelling, that planted the notion of writing full-length novels, poetry and short stories in an already overactive mind.
A.C. went to work quickly, burning through reams of paper with an ever-scribbling pen before turning to computers at age 14. The boreal world rejoiced, and A.C.’s range of writing grew from simplistic children’s tales rooted in wish to horror stories, thrillers, and psychological studies of damaged men and women thrown together by circumstance.
(Oh yes, and there was that novel-length X-Files fanfiction… but no one else ever read it so luckily, it doesn’t count.)
A.C. Dillon’s work is a natural evolution of over twenty years of reading and writing literature, and is characterized by the core elements existing fans have come to love: complex, realistic characters; witty dialogue; and an immersive narrative.
Between insomnia-fueled writing sessions, Dillon is an ardent animal lover who debates politics, obsessively collects music, and endlessly re-watches one of the most underrated films of all time: Empire Records.

I loved reading this book and was driven to read more and more and faster and faster as I went. I am sorry it's over. I hope A.C. Dillon writes lots more because I'll read it! I'll be buying a physical copy for my high school math classroom (kids borrow books from people who like to read, whatever they teach!) as I read the book on my kindle. In addition to being a delicious thriller for the rest of us, Change of Season is a gift to teenagers who have been forced to deal with painful things, whether physical or emotional. The raw language, detailed emphasis on music and writing and drama may seem too much to some people, but to anyone who has known teenagers, it's just right. I highly recommend this book to you. M.

The creepy cool tone that is present throughout the novel not only had me devouring the book, but made sure that I only read while the sun was out. If a suspense book is creepy enough that I don't want to read it at night, the author is definitely doing something right.
I alternately wanted to hug and shake some sense into Autumn, the story's heroine. Autumn is a very cool girl - she loves pop culture and Canadian music. She leaps off the page as someone that I would have loved to hung out with when I was a teenager, but probably wouldn't have been cool enough to keep up with her.
Autumn has more than her fair share of problems. She has a truly psychotic ex-boyfriend who is stalking her and the boarding school she fled to may not be the safe haven she was hoping for. Autumn has the great bad luck to be a doppelganger to several young women who have died or gone missing from Casteel Prep.
Fortunately for Autumn, she falls into a reluctant friendship with Veronica and later, Andy. Armed with two supportive friends and an insightful therapist, Autumn must solve the mystery of the missing girls and avoid her psychotic ex, so that she can live to see the end of the school year.
Veronica and Andy are fantastic supporting characters. Veronica is vivacious, energetic, and refuses to give up on becoming Autumn's friend. She is exactly the kind of friend every girl dreams of - sweet, fun, and always ready for an adventure. Andy is much more like Autumn, solitary and suffering. Circumstance throws them together and a beautiful friendship and eventually romance builds. Just like Autumn depends on Veronica and Andy, so does the success of the story. They add fun, drama, and help Autumn make important discoveries.
I loved the quick pace of the story. I never knew what was going to happen next. Best of all, the end completely surprised me!
I would highly recommend Change of Season.
