You know how you and your sister talk to each other in a way that is completely different from the way you talk to anyone else? Well guess what… that would still be true if you were both famous, successful authors! Meet sisters and authors Lauren Myracle and Susan Rebecca White.
Lauren, the just slightly older sister is known for her hugely popular YA books TTYL and TTFN and her new series for younger readers that starts with LUV YA BUNCHES. And Susan, whose second book A SOFT PLACE TO LAND was recently released, is well on her way to being a favorite among book clubs and critics alike. You may remember my earlier interview with Susan about her first book, BOUND SOUTH.
A while back, I had a chance to sit down with the sisters in their first ever joint interview and they were not shy! We talked about what it was like growing up together and how their relationship has shaped their writing.
This was actually one of my favorite interviews to record. It was like hanging with a couple of my girlfriends over a glass of wine. Of course instead of wine, we had microphones, but you get the idea. And I have to admit something else here too: this interview has been in post-production for a long time. Long enough for the title of Susan’s new book to actually change! You’ll have to listen to the interview to hear what the title was originally going to be.
So, without further ado… enjoy the interview! I know I did.
