Interview with the Author:Where did you come up with Kass and Eli’s characters? They work so well together. Were they always a team in your mind? No, actually Kass and Eli developed from very different places. Eli was born out of my first main character in the first (unpublished) book I’d ever written. It was a meandering story that wasn’t working for a lot of reasons, but over many years of trying to revise it, I got to know and love Eli, and really wanted to bring him to life in a different story. I was thrilled when he worked so well as a main character in this series. Kass was also born out of a different book, a secondary character in my novel Losing Faith. I meant to give this character her own sequel, but when that didn’t work out, I reworked “Tessa” into Kass, who has many similarities, but is definitely her own person. When I put Kass together with Eli, that’s really where the magic happened!What readers will most enjoy the Living Out Loud Series? What book is it most like? I’d say fans of most YA contemporary novels, including those by Jennifer E. Smith, Kasie West, Erin Watt, and Sarah Dessen will enjoy the Living Out Loud Series, but if I was looking for similarities, I would say it is most like Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, for the distinct and deep romance between two such opposing characters. Also fans of Gayle Forman’s If I Stay/Where She Went should find familiarity in the YA music scene.How many books are planned for this series?At this point, I have eight books planned in the series. They are as follows:Track One: OutcastTrack Two: RoadieTrack Three: PusherTrack Four: RunnerTrack Five: Bonus TrackTrack Six: GroupieTrack Seven: PaparazziTrack Eight: RockstarFinal Author’s Note: You will find special bonuses in the back of each novel in this series, including free short stories, novellas, character interviews, and even a coloring book. I hope you have enjoyed this interview, and I hope you’ll give the Living Out Loud Series a try!
