Today we have the honor of sharing with you an interview with Veronica Rossi. She is one of our favorite authors out there and we cant wait to see her again! Check back with us soon for more authors interviews. Now, lets see what Ms. Rossi had to say. Enjoy!

~ About the Author ~

Veronica Rossi is the author of post-apocalyptic fiction for young adults. Her debut novel, UNDER THE NEVER SKY, is the first in a trilogy. Released in January 2012, it was deemed one of the Best Books of Year by School Library Journal. The second book in the trilogy, THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT, debuted in January on the NY Times and USA Today Best Seller Lists. The final book in the series, INTO THE STILL BLUE, is expected to release January 2014.

Foreign rights to the UNDER THE NEVER SKY trilogy have sold in over twenty-five territories to date and film rights have been optioned by Warner Bros.

She completed undergraduate studies at UCLA and then went on to study fine art at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. She lives in Northern California with her husband and two sons. When not writing, she enjoys reading, painting, and counting down the minutes until she can get back to making up stories about imaginary people. 
Her work is represented by Josh Adams of Adams Literary.

1. What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?

Yeah, those. And all the ones in between!

2. Best writing tip you ever received?

                $5. Just kidding. Um… tip… I think it’s probably to allow yourself to suck when writing early drafts. It takes away a lot of the fear of generating good material. It’s not easy to be creative when you’re judging your work.    
3. Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.

In the past year, I discovered a deep love of Brussel sprouts

I talk to myself. Heck. Sometimes I argue with myself.

I’m arguing with myself about including that last point at this very moment.

My favorite animals are elephants.

Dresses with pockets make me happy.

4. Where's your favorite place to write?

                I usually work in my home office, but I love working in hotel rooms. No distractions!

5. What are you working on now?

                Something I’m very excited about! Can’t divulge any details yet, but it’s an idea I’ve been mulling over for years.
