Would you please describe your book, Forget Me Not, in seven words?
A girl tries to hide her Tourette's.
What was the inspiration for writing Forget Me Not?
A story from my mother's childhood combined with my daughter and I both being diagnosed with Tourette syndrome.
Random question! What's your favorite flower?
It's a toss up between poppies and lavender roses.
Both very pretty flowers!
What's one piece of advice you would give to aspiring authors?
Never give up!
What are some MG and YA books you're looking forward to in 2017? And if you've already read some '17 books, which books have you loved?
I've had the pleasure of reading and loving several MG novels coming out in 2017: THE ETHAN I WAS BEFORE (Ali Standish), BRACED (Alyson Gerber), UNDER LOCKER AND KEY (Allison K. Hymas), STEF SOTO, TACO QUEEN (Jennifer Torres).
These all look good!
Thank you so much to Ms. Terry for participating in this event! :)
