On the nightstand:
Large pile of books and an ABBA coaster.
Favorite drink while you write:
As many as possible. I drink a lot. Hydration, hydration, hydration!
The New York Public Library
Sadly, I don't have one. I travel a lot. I WOULD LIKE to have about 17 pets and plan to at some point.
Place to write:
Not where - with. With my friends.
Dream book tour: We all go to the Caribbean together. Let's make this happen!
Writer buddies: Many. Scott Westerfeld, Justine Larbalestier, John Green, Libba Bray, Robin Wasserman, Cassie Clare, Holly Black, E. Lockhart, Lauren Myracle, Lauren McLaughlin, Ally Carter, Sarah Rees Brennan, David Levithan... I'm missing people. We all know each other. It's like HIGH SCHOOL, but more awesome.
Cure for writer's block:
Deadlines, banging head on desk, snacks.
Favorite outfit: Just a simple ball gown. I'm not fancy.
Laptop or longhand?
Laptop. I can barely hold a pen anymore.
Stilettos or Uggs? Surely, there are other choices. Like tap shoes.
Other YA novels:
The Key to the Golden Firebird, The Bermudez Triangle, 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Devilish, Girl at Sea, Let it Snow (with John Green and Lauren Myracle)
Next up: I'll be in the Zombies vs. Unicorns collection coming out in September. The sequel to 13 Little Blue Envelopes, The Last Little Blue Envelope, is coming out next May. And next fall, I'm launching a NEW MYSTERY/PARANORMAL SERIES I am VERY excited about.
