Last week I was super excited to head up to Fort Worth for YAK Fest. I was honored to be asked to moderate the Reality Bites panel with none other than Andrew Smith, Christa Desir, Diana Lopez, and Kody Keplinger! Lucky for me I had read their books so I was able to spend some time asking them questions that I really wanted to know. We talked about thier pet peeves in writing (someone doesn't like alternating points of view and another slut shaming), the prom (Andrew is friends with his senior prom date on Facebook and Christa didn't go to prom), and of course about inspiration and process. Even though I did a lot of research I learned so many new things about all four authors. We had a great time!
