YALLFest Interview With Shannon Hale

The lovely people over at YALLFest have graciously provided me with an interview with Shannon Hale, author of The Goose Girl and Princess Academy. For more YA festival goodness make sure to stop by their site!

Describe your book in 5 words

Boarding school for children of famous fairytales

Best writing tip you ever received?

People remember a story for its characters.

What one young adult novel do you wish you had when you were a teen? Why?

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart. It’s smart, engaging, and discusses so many things I was struggling with.

Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.

I have 4 kids (including identical girl toddler twins). My husband likes to wear masks and hide around the house to scare me. I like to read while lying on my belly. I love the sky. I’m not a very good speller.

What are you working on now?

The third Princess Academy book.

Thanks for the interview Shannon and YALLFest!
