Here at Owl Always Be Reading, we are so excited to be able to host interviews for authors that will be going to YALLFest, which we will be attending for the very first time this coming November 9th, 2013 in Charleston, SC. 

Today we have the honor of sharing with you an interview with Rainbow Rowell. Her most recent novel, Fangirl, was published on September 10th, 2013. We are really excited to meet this awesome author.  Check back with us soon for more authors interviews. Now, lets see what Ms. Rowell had to say. Enjoy!

 ~About the Author ~

Rainbow Rowell writes books.
Sometimes she writes about adults (Attachments and Landline).
Sometimes she writes about teenagers (Eleanor & Park and Fangirl).
But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they’re screwing up. And people who fall in love.
When she’s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things.
She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
