Joining me today is the super talented Alyson Noel! Alyson is the author of the Immortals YA series and the middle grade series featuring Riley Bloom! Up for grabs is a ARC copy of Shimmer (Riley Bloom #2) to one lucky winner (please see giveaway deets at the bottom of the post.)
I don’t read a lot of middle grade fiction, but I was mesmerized by Radiance! What made you decide to step away from the popular trend in teen fiction right now and write a book that, frankly, despite the fact that the main character is a ghost, is quite a joyful and happy book?
For those that haven’t read Radiance, can you tell us a bit about it in your words?
You managed to capture perfectly Riley’s innocence and capriciousness that’s so common to that age. I know it’s hard for me to put my mind in the right place when reading YA fiction, so I’d love to know how you write “kid” so well!
Is there any “musts” that you absolutely have to have in order to write, or get the creative juices flowing?
I noticed in your bio that you like to travel. If you could take a month off and go anywhere, where would you go?
Is there anything you’d like to share about upcoming or future projects?
