1. Why did you decide to become a writer?
Becoming a writer actually happened by accident! I always loved writing, but I knew I had to have a practical career plan as well. I was actually going to college and studying to be an English teacher when I wrote my first book and wound up signing with an agent and getting a deal.
2. Who were your biggest influences?
My grandparents always encouraged me to read and write at a young age. My 101-year-old grandma still has the first picture book I wrote! But my biggest influence was my 11th grade English teacher, who before I graduated, told me "I want a shout-out in your first book." Before then, I never thought I had what it took to sit down and finish a book. Her words helped me realize I had a story in me after all.
3. Where do you like to write?
I'm most comfortable in my room, at my desk. But I'm most productive somewhere quiet, like my college campus library, where I wrote most of PREP SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL.
4. Do you have a special routine you like to do before you write?
I have to make myself a cup of coffee from my Keurig machine!
5. When and how did you get the idea for Prep School Confidential?
I always loved the boarding school setting, and procedural mysteries. Anne's voice came to me first, then I was really inspired by shows like Veronica Mars/The Killing/Twin Peaks.
6. Is there another book in the works? If so, what can we expect?
Book 2 of the PREP SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL series is complete, and I'm working on Book 3 now! You can expect lots more mayhem at the
, as Anne investigates a
decades-old cold case and unearths some secrets that she wishes had stayed
buried. Wheatley School
THIS OR THAT
1. Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
2. Cats or dogs?
I have both, but I am a dog person.
3. Hardcover, paperback or ebook?
Depends on where I'm reading. If I'm traveling, e-book. If I'm at home relaxing, a paperback.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE?
2. Ice cream flavor?
I want a teacup pig so badly! Pigs are so cute.
That's like picking a favorite child! To Kill A Mockingbird is my all-time favorite classic, but my favorite book in recent years is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
5. Actor and actress?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschannel.
6. Fictional character?
Anna from Anna and the French Kiss. She's my girl!
