Quickie Interview: Jennifer Brown
> Where do you live?
Liberty, Missouri, which is just about 15 miles north of Kansas City.
> What was your last work published?
I have a weekly humor column in The Kansas City Star, so my last published work was a column about the new Harry Potter movie. But my last piece of fiction published was a short story called "Breathless." It was published in Kansas City Voices, and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize!
> What is your next work coming out?
HATE LIST, a young adult novel, which will be released September 1st, 2009 (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers). HATE LIST is a story about the aftermath of a school shooting, told from the point of view of the shooter's girlfriend.
> What are you reading?
I'm always reading more than one book at any given time, but my big summer read this summer is "Drood" by Dan Simmons. I'm loving it!
> Where is your favorite place to snuggle down and read?
In bed, with a book light. Every night, without fail.
> Do you have a website? What is the URL?
Yes! Please visit! www.JenniferBrownYA.com
> Do you have a favorite quote?
I'm a huge Walt Disney fan, and he's got tons of great quotes, but probably the one I use the most is: "It's kind of fun to do the impossible."
"Keep reading and dreaming"
