Two author interviews for you today!
The time travel/wormhole aspect of Stitch was fascinating. How much research did you have to do for Stitch? The thing that’s most amazing about that stuff is that it’s actually true – or at least, those are the most accepted current scientific theories. I actually didn’t have to do a ton of additional research, because I find that stuff fascinating too, so I’ve done a good amount of Stephen Hawking reading and that sort of stuff in the past. When it came time for Stitch, I just drew on what I knew and used articles online to refresh my memory and make sure I was explaining things as accurately as possible. In terms of new research for this series, I actually did a lot more about viral epidemics and how easy it would be for a biological outbreak to really decimate our planet – let me tell you, it’s scary!!

Next up is another great interview at Teri Polen’s Books & Such – check it out:
What do you like best and least about your main character, Alessa? Great question! Best is that she’s strong and resourceful and determined – she sets her mind to something and she gets it done. Least is that she can be a bit moody – she’s not as easy to love as, say, Janie (her best friend), because a lot of times she’s not bubbly, she’s not super outgoing or friendly, and she’s a lot more reserved. It takes a lot for Alessa to let her guard down. But once she does, she’s loyal to a fault and will do anything for the people she loves – so I think that makes up for being a little more serious and less fun-loving!
