This is the first post of a new series. Each post will be a six-question interview with a writer friend of mine. My first interview is with Grace.
Alpine Writer: What author or authors do you think most influenced your writing?
Grace: Probably Sarah Dessen, or Robin Jones Gunn. I admire their books and I think they’re amazing fiction authors!
A: What genre do you write?
G: Teen fiction
A: Do you tend to stick to one genre or do you like to write lots of different things?
G: I stick to this genre, unless I feel adventurous, then I try for dystopian fiction.
A: Do you tend to write the same kind of things as what you read?
G: Yes, but sometimes I like to read something different and spice up my “routine”.
A: What is your most recent work-in-progress?
G: I’m currently in the works of the rough draft of a novel about a girl who reluctantly creates an anonymous blog and becomes famous. That’s not the whole plot obviously but the gist of it.
A: What are some of your favorite books?
G: This is such a difficult question to answer! Hmm… Probably the Christy Miller series, The Giver, and Twilight.
Be sure to check back next week for my second interview!
