Lauren: My first publishable idea came pretty quickly--from start to finish, the whole book took me just about a year to write. But I'd spent years writing many failed novels before I had the idea for BEFORE I FALL!
What's the best part of being an author?
Lauren: Getting paid to do the thing I love most in the world!
And the worst?
Lauren: When I have too many ideas and not enough time to write them all!
What's a typical day in life of Lauren Oliver? You live in New York, so I'm sure it's all coffee dates, fancy parties, knock of a few chapters in a hour before cocktails with girls, no? ;D
Lauren: Actually, that's not too far off, especially a few years ago, when I was single. :) Now there's a lot more sitting on the couch with my man, watching Game of Thrones! And there's a lot more work than there is shopping--I work between 5-9 hours a day, typically. And THEN I drink cocktails with my girlfriends!
Last one! What's your funniest (or weirdest) authorly moment? Any crazed fans?
Lauren: Hmmm. No, although I did recently have a fan tweet me that he'd located my house on Google Maps! That was slightly disconcerting. But in general my fans are awesome.
