The S-Word


The S-Word by Chelsea Pitcher

Lizzie wasn’t the first student at Verity High School to kill herself this year. But the difference is, she didn’t go quietly.

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Oh, I don't have a motto, and I don't read maxim ;) Really, life is too fluid for me to pick one motto and stick to it. I adapt.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. I love musical theater, although I'm pretty terrible when it comes to acting. I just liked being a part of it :)

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. I have a really eclectic taste in music. I love artists like Tori Amos and Ani Difranco, and I'm also a long-time Hanson fan. Also, really poppy stuff that's good for dancing. Picking artist is easier than songs. Songs would be next to impossible (too many to choose!) I'm being difficult, aren't I?

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Morgan of the Faeries.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. You're looking at it.
