Every week – they are releasing interviews with authors, and today’s interview is with Kami Garcia. Here’s what the author had to say…

Q: Describe your book in 5 words:
A: Romeo and Juliet meets Hitchcock 

Q: What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
A: I spend a lot of time thinking about my first lines. A lot of time. Too much time. Luckily the last lines usually come to me as I write. 

Q: What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read? 
A: What I love about YA is that I don't have to choose a genre. I can blend elements and mess with conventions from all of them—horror, mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, whatever. I'm not sure I could choose a favorite, if I were ever told that I had to. And my reading is all over the place, but right now I'm reading a lot of old school sci-fi and fantasy, with some literary fiction thrown in. 

Q: What one young adult novel do you wish you had when you were a teen? Why? 
A: The Magicians by Lev Grossman. It's not YA, but it is about a teenager who reminds me of my teen self. And maybe also my adult self. Anyway. I basically push the book into the hands of everyone I meet. It's just that good. 

Q: What are you working on now? 
A: A secret project that is secret. But I'm wildly excited about it, and I think my readers will be too.
