Check out Natalie Standiford’s YALLFest Author Interview!
Who and what would you bring with you for the zombie apocalypse?
I’m such a wimp. When the zombies come, I’ll probably offer them my skull and say, “Get it over with.”
If you could spend a week in any book world, which would it be?
For just one week I’d like to live in the world of The Great Gatsby, if only to go to the fabulous parties.
What is the best word (in any language) and why?
In English, I’m fond of “smackdown,” because it’s so onomatopoetic, and “silver.” But “la nuit” and “le soir” are beautiful in French.
Who are you most excited to see at YALLFest?
Everyone! I can’t wait to see old friends (so many of my beloveds will be there), and I’m looking forward to meeting people I don’t know yet, like my fellow-Baltimorean Adam Gidwitz, and lots of readers.
What is your favorite flavor of pie?
