Author Interview: Julianna Baggott
What was the hardest part of building your dystopian world?
The why. Why did the world as we know it fail? So many options to choose from.
Pressia's hand fuses to a doll's. What would be the worst part about that for you?
I'd miss, quite simply, the feel of my own fingers as individual, moving them through water, through the pressure of air outside of a window. Each finger. Each one.
If you could pair Pressia and Bradwell with any character from any book, who would you pick for each?
What god/goddess would be your nemesis?
Is it cheating to say that I googled Goddess just to get some ideas and I found the blog of The Gluten-Free Goddess. Now, I respect this goddess, deeply, but I'd have to say that my love of gluten runs deep -- very deep -- and if she and I really wanted to spar gluten against gluten free, I'd do my best.
What kind of cookie would you describe yourself as?
Finally, an easy one! Lemon ginger.
Thank you, Julianna, and congrats on the release! Now to hope that my hand never gets fused to a doll...
