  1. great interview. I will have to tell my neice about this author. I think she will like her.

  2. I read book as part of the hop as well and loved it. I love this interview you did with her. So funny that her talent is that she can recite Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” in Dutch. That cracks me up! I hope she does a follow up to the book.

  3. What an interesting concept! I would be interested in seeing how the author’s background in psychology plays out in the novella. (and I love that she loves The Giver — such a great book!)
