1. What one thing do you need to have when you write?

A scented candle. Each book has it’s own scent.

2. Describe your book in 5 words.

Popular freshmen’s secret journals revealed.

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

First. 100%

4. Best writing tip you ever received?

Stop writing in the middle of a chapter instead of the end. It will be easier to start up again the next 
day.

5. What one young adult novel do you wish you had when you were a teen? Why?

Stargirl.

6. Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.

I can’t run.

I have a tattoo with a type-o. It’s supposed to say, “creativity” but it says, “dry.”

In college I thought it would be cool to get a tattoo written in Chinese characters.

I was supposed to be on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center. I changed my 

reservation at the last minute. Now every time I look at a clock it says 9:11.

I can’t stand being asked about my “favorites.” I don’t have favorites. If I did I’d forget what they are 

the minute you asked and would remember them the minute you leave. It’s maddening.

I prefer to give 6 random facts. 

7. Where's your favorite place to write?

My office.

8. What are you working on now?

Pretenders #2: License To Spill.
 

9. What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?

What did I just tell you about “favorites?”

10. At what point in the development of an idea do you know that it will become a full-length novel?

When I can describe it in one sentence. And do it without cringing.
