Today I am happy to share an interview with bestselling author, Sean Williams. He's the author of the Troubletwisters series and Twinmaker, which comes out November 5th. Along with many other Young Adult authors, Sean is attending the YALLFest, or the Charleston Young Adult Book Festival, in Charleston, NC this November. Can I tell you how jealous I am of everyone planning to attend? It sounds like a great time! Now onto the interview:
The right music. And chocolate as a reward when I finish.
Describe your book in 5 words
Jump meets Uglies. But different.
What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
The first line is often the hardest to write, but I like a good challenge. The line I like writing the least is the last because it means I have a whole load of rewriting ahead of me.
Best writing tip you ever received?
Give up. If you can do that, you’ll be happier and probably better off as a result. If you can’t, then you know writing is exactly the right thing for you!
1) I live in Adelaide, South Australia, a place that’s home to about a million other people but somehow feels like a small town, which is why I love it.
2) I still think music from the 1980s is cool.
3) My stepson has situs invertus, which means his heart is on the wrong side of his body. That’s not really about me, but it is pretty random.
4) I’m a huge fan of Doctor Who.
5) I’m minding a pair of green tree frogs, Skipper and Jumpy, for a young friend while she’s overseas with her family. You can see pictures of them on my Facebook page.
Where's your favorite place to write?
In my study, a lovely upstairs nook containing all my favorite book-related things, but I’ve trained myself to write anywhere as long as I have my headphones and some music. I quite like writing in hotels, probably because someone else does all the household chores.
What are you working on now?
Crashland, the sequel to Twinmaker.
I can't wait to read Twinmaker. Thanks for visiting, Sean! To learn more about Sean Williams, visit his website and follow him on Twitter. Also, to learn more about YALLFest, check out their website and Twitter.
