Interview with Scott Westerfeld at Yallfest
1) What Inspired the Uglies series? (it is such a girl driven series)
A friend from New York moved to LA and went to the dentist. The dentist said they needed new teeth and gave a 5 year plan. Saying where were his teeth going to be in 5 years. That got me thinking about plastic surgery and the aspect of trying to make someone perfect.
2) Do you like writing in one specific genre or do you like mixing it up since most of your books have a wide range?
I like doing different things. If I were to write the same thing I would get bored.
3) I know you did Power Puff Girls book for Middle Grade, so are you planning to do any more middle grade books?
Yes, I have a project I am working on right now but details are still under wraps.
4) What is your next up and coming project?
I have a superhero Young Adult project but that is all I can say since the rest is still under wraps.
5) You said you are working with another Author on an upcoming book so, do you prefer collaborating?
Yes, I like it because it is more social and goes through more edits when it goes back and forth.
6) Will you do any Adult books?
No I do not plan to at this time
Thank you for taking the time out to talk to us on your busy schedule at Yallfest! We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Interview with Marie Lu at Yallfest
1) I know that you have many hobbies, you like to do photography and you have worked on games for Disney in the past. Do you think that all of these hobbies help you with your writing?
I like doing different things. Having these other hobbies helps with my creativity when it comes to my writing and it definitely helps inspire my writing.
2) I know that you had mentioned in our past interview that The Young Elites was inspired by Assassins Creed the video game and that you do play it. What is your favorite video game since you are such a gamer?
I really love the video game Journey but it is only available to play on Playstation 3 and not on Xbox.
3) I know you have been touring now for a little while is hard being a way from your family?
Yes, at times I miss my husband when I am away traveling.
4) What has been your favorite stop on tour?
I love all the stops but I had never been to Canada so I really enjoyed that.
