YALLFest author interview | Lisa McMann

Here we are, 2 weeks away from YALLFEST 2013! I am already getting together my books and planning on which books I’ll be purchasing while there. If you live anywhere remotely close to Charleston and you love YA. . .GO! It’s an incredible time and you’ll just love Blue Bicycle Books. In fact, it is one of my most favorite indie bookstores I’ve ever been to. If you would like more information regarding YALLFEST, click HERE

Today, we have the author of The Wake Trilogy – Lisa McMann!

  • What one thing do you need to have when you write?
    Silence.

 

  • Best writing tip you ever received?
    “Think of the one thing your main character would never, ever do. Now make her do it.”

 

 

  • What are you working on now?
    We’ll be ramping up the releases of books 5, 6, and 7 in the Unwanteds series, so I’m working on Unwanteds book 5 right now.

 

 

  • What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
    I really enjoy writing in a variety of genres, from realistic to paranormal to dystopian fantasy. At the moment, fantasy is winning, but that could change at any moment. My favorite genre to read is memoir.

 

 

  • At what point in the development of an idea do you know that it will become a full-length novel?
    As soon as I have a one line concept that gives me a little shiver.
