Inquiring Minds Want to Know!
It's Thursday on the Buzz Blog, and Dona Sarkar and I are off to do a workshop panel for Pacific Northwest Writers Association. http://pnwa.org/
We're speaking on a multi-author panel about writing in general, and how to change and evolve to survive in the industry. Dona and I are the only YA authors on the panel, so that brings me to the question for you:
What questions do you really want answered about YA books?
I have a few for a couple of our Buzz girls:
1) Tina: How much of your YA writing comes from your own life, and how much comes from having an awesome teen daughter? Where is your prom dress from high school, btw?
2) Tera: Were you a runner in high school? I can't imagine how else you would know so much about cross-country for Oh. My. Gods...?
3) Steph: Do you covet the fashionable stuff like Aspen in your novels? How many purses do you really own?
5) Marley: I know you have been on ghosthunts, but have you had real-life spontaneous encounters with the other side?
I would love to know the answers to these questions - -and I hope all you Buzz Blog readers post more of your own in the comments section. What are you dying to know about the Buzz Girls and their books?
Oh, just for fun, here's a picture from last summer's Buzz Girl panel at the RWA National Conference. The other bees snuck off, but here are Marley, Tera, and Dona! Look how cute you guys are!
