45 DAYS TO GO!!!!!
Today's interview is with Ransom Riggs and I am super excited about it. His book, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, is on the top of my to-read list. The cover fascinates me in both a creepy and an "I can't look away" way. I think we were meant to be friends. For real. I'll let you know how it goes when I tell him this next month :)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
What one thing do you need to have when you write?
Silence. My noice-cancelling headphones have become almost essential.
What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
I'm six foot four. I lived on a working farm until I was five. I used to know how to cook Indian food but now I've forgotten. I love documentaries. One day, I will conquer the moon.
What are you working on now?
A novel for Little, Brown - the plot of which is SECRET! (Sort of, for now. But I'm really excited about it.)
What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?Oh, definitely YA to write in. I read everything, lots of YA, lots of adult, nonfiction of all sorts. I even read poetry when I'm feeling ambitious. I think it's crucial to have lots of different influences. If you only read in the genre you write in, your writing will sound like everything else that's already out there.
