Author Interview: Lisi Harrison

It is hard to believe that it is less than one month to go until YALLFEST. Where has this year gone? For more information regarding about it, be sure to check out their website and on Twitter too. If you can get yourself to Charleston on Saturday, November 9th, it is sure to be an event not to be missed! 

Fans of the Clique and Alphas series will recognize this next author--Lisi Harrison! Be sure to check out her website for more information about her and her books. :-)

Q1: What one thing do you need to have when you write?
A scented candle. Each book has it’s own scent.

Q2: Describe your book in 5 words
Popular freshmen’s secret journals revealed.

Q3: What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
First. 100%

Q4: Best writing tip you ever received?
Stop writing in the middle of a chapter instead of the end. It will be easier to start up again the next day.

Q5: What one young adult novel do you wish you had when you were a teen? Why?

Stargirl. [by Jerry Spinelli]

Q6: Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
  1. I can’t run.
  2. I have a tattoo with a type-o. It’s supposed to say, “creativity” but it says, “dry.”
  3. In college I thought it would be cool to get a tattoo written in Chinese characters.
  4. I was supposed to be on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center. I changed my reservation at the last minute. Now every time I look at a clock it says 9:11.
  5. I can’t stand being asked about my “favorites.” I don’t have favorites. If I did I’d forget what they are the minute you asked and would remember them the minute you leave. It’s maddening.
  6. I prefer to give 6 random facts. 

Q7: Where's your favorite place to write?
My office.

Q8: What are you working on now?
Pretenders #2: License To Spill.

Q9: What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?

What did I just tell you about “favorites?”

Q10: At what point in the development of an idea do you know that it will become a full-length novel?
When I can describe it in one sentence. And do it without cringing.
