Nova Ren Suma
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What if?

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I am incapable of giving up. I've been trying to be a writer for years—first for adults and now for younger readers. It hasn't been easy, and I remember flirting with the idea of giving up for good a few times. The thing is, I always knew deep down that I wouldn't. I could never give up; I just don't have it in me.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Impossibility.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Astronaut. (Don't worry—I'd still write books on the side.)

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. It's a tie. I have great skill in negativity—I can make even the most exciting opportunity seem like a downer. And I'm also easily distracted—to the point where I have to physically remove myself from my apartment, which contains the television, in order to write.
