Susin Nielsen Doesn’t Want to Live in the World of A Story

We asked Susin Nielsen, author of Word Nerd, Dear George Clooney Will You Please Marry My Mother and The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen,  about her writing habits.  She gives us some great ideas that we can use in our own writing.  

If you could live in one storyworld, which would it be?

Gee. This will sound terrible, but I’m kind of a realist, and I like a lot of my fiction that way. So I’d probably not choose to live in a storyworld. However, when I was younger, if the Harry Potter books had been around, I would absolutely have wanted to live in the world of the first book, without a doubt.

Ask an Author is a semi-regular feature on O’Deary Library.  If you have a question for an author, leave it in the comments below.  We’ll try to reach the author and get an answer for you.
