*What would you be doing right now if you were not an author?
I'd probably be a literary manager working with playwrights to develop new work!

Being an admin assistant for a university press and starting to write my first novel-which got an agent but wasn't published. 

*Do you have a certain writing ritual?
I'm a night owl- I write from 10pm until 2 or 3am!

*What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author?
It's always hard when readers don't like Cate and Finn because they're like my children! It stings a bit.

*Ever fangirled over another author? Who was it?
Yes! Kristin Cashore! I love her!

*Is there an author you'd like to meet? 
Franny Billingsley-CHIME is one of my all-time favorites-such a gorgeous  haunting, memorable book!

Yes! I find it super interesting!
