Catching Up

This interview with Gail Carson Levine at A Pen and a Nest is interesting because I heard her speak a couple of years ago at a literary event, and I've read a couple of her books. I'm always more interested in reading about authors I've seen in the flesh or whose work I've read. What makes it really interesting, though, is that it focuses on one specific thing--where and when Carson Levine works. I liked narrowing the info down like that. The link came from Cynsations.

I read HipWriterMama's interview with Jo Knowles because I met Jo in a parking lot a couple of months ago. This interview is part of the Summer Blog Blast Tour, which I almost missed altogether this year.

Oh, look, Jo is also interviewed at lectitans. Another Summer Blog Blast Tour event.

And here we've got an interview with S.E. Hinton at Nathan Bransford's blog. Best bits: "I think I've tried every writing process there is, trying to find an easy way to write a novel. If I do find it, I'll publish it and retire." "How interesting can a person be who spends a lot of her working hours staring out a window?" I haven't met Hinton, and I haven't read any of her books. I do have a family member who was obsessed with The Outsiders when he was a teenager, though.
