Personally I've read Before I Fall and I quite liked it! It had a good message. 
Read on for her interview!

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

What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
Honestly, neither. It’s just every single line in between that feels impossible.

Best writing tip you ever received?
Aim for truth and beauty will follow.

Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
I have fourteen tattoos. I can fall asleep any time, any place. I have a phobia of worms. I hate fruit. I wrote my first novel largely on my Blackberry.

Where's your favorite place to write?
In my sunroom in upstate New York.

What are you working on now?
Two different middle grade books and an untitled young adult novel that my agent described as  “the most disturbing thing he’s ever read.” Oops!

What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
I love realistic books that include just a hint of fantasy.

Ooh I don't know about you but I'm pretty excited about the most disturbing thing her agent's ever read! 

Be sure to check out Lauren at this years YALLFest! Have you read any of her books? Are you looking forward to meeting her at Yallfest this year?


  1. Wow good for her, You know I have been in the midst of writing a fictional novel for a while now and I just can't seem to get past page 250. With work and blogging and life it is so hard to keep up with it. Hopefully I will finish it and get it published one day.

    1. ooh I hope you do finish it! I used to write a lot too but don't really anymore. I can't wait for you to finish it and get published :D

  2. how cool! im always looking for new books to read. i'll have to check out the delirium series :)
