YALLFest Author Interview: Lauren Oliver

Hiya Swooners,

So today I have the awesome Lauren Oliver, author of the Delirium trilogy, and many more. I had the pleasure of meeting Lauren back in March/April for a Requiem signing and I'm a so excited to feature her on the blog as one authors attending YALLFest in November. For those that don't know, YALLFest is day full of panels, presentations, and signing from a large range of variety of authors.

Lauren was nice enough and answered a few questions for us so just sit back and enjoy.

What one thing do you need to have when you write?

What is the hardest line to write- the first or the last?
Honestly, neither. It’s just every single line in between that feels impossible.

Best writing tip you ever received?
Aim for truth and beauty will follow.

Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
I have fourteen tattoos. I can fall asleep any time, any place. I have a phobia of worms. I hate fruit. I wrote my first novel largely on my Blackberry.

Where's your favorite place to write?
In my sunroom in upstate New York.

What are you working on now?
Two different middle grade books and an untitled young adult novel that my agent described as “the most disturbing thing he’s ever read.” Oops!

What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
I love realistic books that include just a hint of fantasy.

  1. I would love to go to YALLFest, but I don't think I'm going to be able to go. Such great authors all together! I would love to hear from people who have gone in the past. ~Pam
