A. Write, Read, Tivo, Repeat...
A. Hmmm...I don't really have one, but I am rather fond of "Carpe Diem." Oh! And when I was in high school, I had a bumper sticker that said "Honk If You Want Me!" But I'm pretty sure that doesn't count, especially since I only got honks when my sister was in the car.
A. I'm scared of a lot of things -- the dark, food that's been left in the fridge too long, scary movies that involve serial killers...the list goes on.
A. "Whatever" and "Scandalous" -- after I turned in REALITY CHICK, my editor emailed me and was like, "You do realize you use the word 'scandalous' on pages 1, 5, 13, 17, 21, 22, 35..." I had to cut a lot of them.
A. Singing! Dancing! Acting! My secret dream is to play Elle in LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL, even though, you know, it closed and I can't sing even a little tiny bit.
A. Holden Caulfield
A. Broadway star! Or American Idol winner.
A. Hmmm. I'm torn between cheeseburgers and ice cream. One summer I seriously ate ice cream almost every single day, and I never got sick of it, so I guess ice cream.
A. I have SO MANY -- J.D. Salinger, Meg Cabot, Sophie Kinsella, Sarah Mlynowski, E. Lockhart, Emily Giffin, Khaled Hosseini, Marian Keyes... I read a lot of YA, and I usually like my books to have at least a little bit of romance :)
A. I have like a thousand favorite books -- there's no way I could pick just five.
A. Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger
A. Never ever, ever, give up -- no matter what.
A. That they want me to make a movie of THE SECRET IDENTITY OF DEVON DELANEY, and that they should be able to play Devon! Unfortunately, authors don't have control over whether or not our books get made into movies. And obviously if this were to happen, you know I'd be the one to play Devon.
A. THE SECRET IDENTITY OF DEVON DELANEY is actually based on something I did when I was in junior high. And um, that's all I'm going to say. Because if you've read the book, you know it's about a girl who lies about going out with the most popular boy in school. And so to admit you've actually done that is very embarrassing.
