I’m interviewing The Misfits today, the author duo behind “Hurry Home”. My questions are bolded, author’s responses are in regular font.
1. What is the hardest part about being an author?
M: For me it is remembering that the book doesn’t have to be perfect the first time around. I will spend a half hour to forty five minutes trying to write one paragraph because I can’t get it perfect. I tend to forget that that’s what editting is for.
A: My mind has so many ideas in it that writing them down would be the hardest part.
2. Can you give us a short synopsis of Hurry Home?
M and A: Hurry Home is a supernatural story about the importance of friends, family, and being human.
3. Is this a part of a series, or a stand alone?
M and A: You really never know what could happen in the future.
4. How many hours per day do you spend writing?
M: I average about 2-3 hours per day, sometimes more.
A: I average about five hours a day, sometimes more and sometimes a lot less.
5. What is your favorite book in the same genre as yours?
M and A: I can’t choose just one book out of my favorite series, but that series is the Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead.
6. What are you working on now?
M: I am currently working on a series about a princess from another world. She had her memory stolen from her and was sent to live in our world for her own protection. The story is about her getting those memories back and returning to take her rightful place on the throne.
A: I am working on a futuristic dystopian story about lack of privacy in America. In this novel there is no privacy between people and their government. The main character – Zeppelin- gets drafted into the privacy department of the government and learns all the secrets they are hiding.
