Why do you write YA?
When I was a teenager, every moment, every boyfriend, every friend who came and went, seemed like the most important thing at the moment. Everything I went through, all my experiences, helped shape me and helped create the person I am today. I remember my first boyfriend in high school, when we broke up it seemed like the whole world was ending, it was so dramatic and full of emotion. It was important, in that I met the man I’m married to today through that boyfriend, but it obviously wasn’t the end of the world when we broke up. Although I did learn from the experience and again, it shaped who I am today.
What I’m rambling on about is that our teenage years are where we learn what kind of person we want to be, what we might want to do with our lives, we find our voice. We have to make all these huge decisions that can affect the rest of our lives. With all the angst and emotion that comes along with these years, they’re the most fun to write about. Adding some thrill into them, some crazy lifestyles, makes it even more fun!
When I write about young adults, I try to put myself in their shoes, and hope that while they’re reading my books, they can relate to the characters or learn from them. With the weight of the world on their shoulders, I want them to be able to find some comfort or knowledge in my novels.
