Questions to Ask an Author

Hi, Summer Reading Challengers. Many of you are planning to come to our author reading on Tuesday (because it's a Secret Bonus Task!). If it's your first author reading, you might be wondering what kinds of things Heidi Kling will talk about. Here's a list of frequently asked questions that you could ask:
  • How do you get ideas for characters? Are they based on real people or made up?
  • Where and when do you usually write? Do you have a schedule for writing?
  • Do you plan your books before you start, or just sit down and write them?
  • Who gets to read your drafts before they're published?
  • How did your first book get published?
  • What are you writing next?
  • How old were you when you started writing novels?
  • Do you have any advice for young people who want to become authors?

Remember, Heidi Kling will be here to talk about her Young Adult novel, Sea, on Tuesday August 3rd at 7:00 p.m.
