HarperTeen Authors on Fictional Crushes, High School and More


On Sunday, HarperTeen's Dark Days tour came to Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville, Ill., and I had the opportunity to sit down for a chat with four fantastic authors -- Jocelyn Davies, Amy Garvey, Claudia Gray and Kiersten White.

Subjects covered include:

1) Kiersten's history as the high school loudmouth
2) Amy's dream day in NYC
3) Why Jocelyn would make a good mermaid (besides her pretty hair)
4) And what would lead Peeta Mellark to tell Claudia, "I will love and defend you forever. Here's a cupcake."

Our chat, with the narration and camerawork of my dear friend Heidi from YA Bibliophile...


Love 'em? Want more? Enter below for a chance to win their books, plus Eve by fellow HarperTeen author Anna Carey.



Authors, I cannot thank you enough for sitting down to talk to me and being so friendly. What a treat!

  13. I wish I was there! :( It's alright, I can live through this video!

    ...or maybe not. The volume isn't so good on the video or maybe it's my computer so I can't hear it too well. :( But, thanks for the video and taking your time to do all of this!
