Author Interview: Jennifer Shaw Wolf

Today's guest is the author of one of my favorite books, one that gutted me and kept me gripped and blew me away. Who is it? Jennifer Shaw Wolf, debut author with Breaking Beautiful. Trust me, you want to read this book, and to whet your appetite more, here's an interview with her!

Faced with a situation like Allie’s, would you want to find out the dark truth or remain unknowing?

Oh, this is a tough one. I would want to know the answer enough that I would keep pushing for the truth, but once I found out, I’d wish I’d remained in blissful ignorance. Vague enough?

It’s just Blake and a tiger in the ring of the Roman Coliseum. What happens? What about with Andrew or Trip?

Blake figures out a peaceful resolution and he and the lion part as friends. Andrew outsmarts the lion and gets away. Trip goes for brute force and gets eaten.

If you could pair Allie, Trip and Blake with any character from any book, who would you pick for each?

All of these characters had a “pair” from the book, but if I were to mix it up, I’d put Allie with Randall, Trip with Angie, and try Blake with Caitlyn.

If you were a demigod, what god/goddess would be your parent?

I love Artemis, but she’s sworn to be a virgin so her being my mom is kind of out. How about Colliope, the goddess muse of epic poetry? I can use all the inspiration I can get.

What kind of cookie would you describe yourself as?

For some reason snicker doodle comes to mind. Really they’re just a plain round sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon and sugar, maybe with a little tartness or bitterness from the cream of tartar. I have a distinct memory of sitting with one of my first boyfriends, at his house, eating snicker doodles and talking with his mom so a snicker doodle brings back bittersweet memories for me. Maybe I’m a snicker doodle because on the outside I’m simple and sweet, but when you get to know me, or especially when you read my writing, I’m a little different then what you’d expect.

Thank you, Jennifer, and congrats on the upcoming release! I cannot wait to see it on the shelves!

This one hits shelves April 24 from Walker, but you really should just preorder it now. And if you're a blogger, it's now on Netgalley so go request!
