As per The Beach Boys, “I’m gettin’ bugged driving up and down this same old strip, I gotta find a new place where the kids are hip.” This week, that place is Lorna Suzuki’s blog. Lorna interviewed me for her Featured Author segment, and I’m super chuffed, especially since it was just two Fridays ago that we met up for dinner in Seattle before she appeared at Emerald City Comicon (ECCC).
If you’re not familiar with Lorna’s work, she’s one of my homeys (Canadian), and is the author of The Imago Chronicles series, the first book from which is being made into a movie. While in Seattle, Lorna was finally able to announce that Don Carmody will be joining with Michy Gustavia to co-produce The Imago Chronicles, A Warrior’s Tale, with production set to start in the fall. Carmody has produced more than 100 films, including Good Will Hunting, the musical Chicago, and the Resident Evil series, so Lorna’s book is in fantastically-good hands. Everyone who knows Lorna is thrilled for her, because she’s a hard-working author who always makes time to connect with people and support other writers in their work.
On Lorna’s blog, I confess to plagiarism, and give away my most secretly-held writing-preparation technique, among other things. In addition to all the linky goodness above, here’s the direct link to my interview. (No commenting over there, so please definitely for sure leave comments here if you are compelled.)
Here’s Lorna, her daughter Nia (who, by the way, co-writes a YA series with her mom), me, and writers Avery Tingle (sitting) and Andrew Beane before we stuffed our faces at Rock Bottom in Seattle last month.
And p.s. When I said up there at the top that I gotta find a new place where the kids are hip, I did NOT mean that the kids who come here aren’t hip. YOU ARE HIP. Maybe not The Tragically Hip, but that’s okay, because if you were The Tragically Hip, I would drive to your house and fangirl all over you, and that could get awkward.
