Lauren Oliver Author Interview for YALLFEST

Have you heard of YALLFEST?  If you have not, than I really encourage you to pop over to their site to learn more about this AMAZING event happening on Saturday, November 9 in Charleston, SC. I only wish I lived closer so I could attend but instead, I am helping to spread the word about it!

Today, I am beyond thrilled to be sharing an interview with the spectacular Lauren Oliver. Taking a look at her GoodReads page, you will find so many wonderful titles to read. This past March, the highly anticipated Requiem debuted. I know I am looking forward to reading Panic as well in the upcoming months. Without further ado, here is the interview:

Q1: What one thing do you need to have when you write?

Q2: 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.
Q3: Best writing tip you ever received?
Aim for truth and beauty will follow.

Q4: Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
  1. I have fourteen tattoos. 
  2. I can fall asleep any time, any place. 
  3. I have a phobia of worms. 
  4. I hate fruit. 
  5. I wrote my first novel largely on my Blackberry.

Q6: Where's your favorite place to write?
In my sunroom in upstate New York.

Q7: 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!

Q8: What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
I love realistic books that include just a hint of fantasy.
