Today, we are happy to join Fiktshun, Two Chicks on Books and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads in the 2nd Annual Authors Are Rockstars Tour! You can find all of the details and blogs participating HERE.
Why is Hannah a rockstar?
Hannah is one-of-a-kind in her storytelling. She writes amazing novels that broach subjects that aren't often written into young adult fiction, and she does so with grace and originality. Her books are engaging, with characters that you can't help but love--even with how messed up they are (and if you've read her work, you know exactly what I'm talking about). She's an insta-buy author for me (Emily), and she should be for you as well! Her books are beautiful, both inside and out. Hannah is undeniably a rockstar!
When did you know that you would be a writer?
I always knew I wanted to be a writer or a singer. Then I heard some people who could actually sing and welllll there you go.
How long did it take for you to first get published?
I started writing seriously when I was 14. I sold my first novel (which was actually the seventh I ever wrote) BREAK when I was 17. It came out in 2009, when I was 18.
Are you working on any new projects?
Yes! I have a lot of great things in the works. The one I'm most excited about is a cowriting project I just finished the first draft of. My cowriter is incredibly talented and it's a story that's very personal to both of us and was very rewarding to write.
You’ve written a mix of different genres, which genre is easier for you to write and why?
I always say my spirit animal is a fifteen-year-old emo boy, so any books that have one or two of them are the easiest.
Do you relate personally to any of your stories?
To some extent to all of them, but none as much as I do GONE, GONE, GONE, which is about the D.C. metro sniper shootings in 2002., I was living in the area at the time and I've never been able to get them out of my head.
What authors inspires you?
Jaclyn Moriarty, Melina Marchetta, E. Lockhart, E. E. Cummings, J. M. Barrie, Chris Lynch, Steve Breznoff, Francesca Lia Block, a bajillion others.
If you weren’t a writer, what would be your ideal job?
I want to American's Next Top Model.
