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!
