Auther Interview: Jessica Warman + Contest!
Where the Truth Lies is a companion novel to Breathless.
1.) If you could choose one word to describe your book what would it be?
2.) Which of your characters was the most fun to write?
I absolutely love the character of Del Sugar. Writing about him is always a joy, no matter what he’s doing. I have a serious crush on him.
3.) Like Emily, did you ever go to a boarding school?
Yes! I was at boarding school for three years, from grades 10-12. Breathless is loosely based on my experiences.
4.) Where did you get the idea to write Where the Truth Lies?
There were some characters from Breathless who I didn’t feel I was quite finished with yet – specifically Mazzie and Renee. And I’d written a book for my graduate thesis about Del Sugar as an adult – I wanted a chance to explore his adolescence, too, since he’s so interesting to me. Everything just kind of came together with “Where the Truth Lies.”
5.) On a scale of 1 to 10, how excited are you for your books release date?
10! Always a 10!
6.) Do you see yourself writing any new young adult books in the near future?
Absolutely! I love writing for young adults. I have a book coming out next year, called “Between.” It’s a thriller/ mystery, and I’m SO excited about it! I also have a fourth book in the works that is scheduled for release in 2012.
Can't wait to read about it!
