Q: Why did you gravitate to the genre that you write in?
I write contemporary because my brain has the worst time handling anything that’s not possible. Anytime I’m reading or watching speculative fiction, I’m like, “What? Nope. This could never happen.”
Q: What are you reading right now?
I’ve recently started Riley Redgate’s Seven Ways We Lie (just came out this month!) and Ashley Herring Blake’s How To Make A Wish, which will be out in 2017. I’m in the middle of a move and both of these have such amazingly strong starts that it is physically KILLING me that I don’t have the time to read on. KILLING ME.
Q: If you could be a character in any children’s book, who would you be and why?
Nancy Drew. That Ned was kind of a snore so I’d ditch him for Bess or George and then just keep being cool and smart, solving all the mysteries.
Q: Where’s your favorite place to write?
Q: What’s your favorite classic movie?
Stand by Me is a classic, right?
Q: If you could have any animal as a pet (current or extinct), what would it be?
I’m not an animal person because the hair, the breath and all the potty-training anxiety. However, we do have a cute little brown Chihuahua. If I had another pet, it’d have to be one that’d be a great friend to him. And definitely already trained.
Q: Milk, dark, or white chocolate?
Q: What’s your favorite holiday?
Thanksgiving! No worry about presents or crazy decorating. It’s just friends, family and food.
Q: What’s your favorite emoji?
To the surprise of no one, my favorite emoji right now is the crown. I’m using it so much. It’s very LALLU:
Q: What did you want to grow up to be when you were 17?
At seventeen, my biggest passion was writing and reading. I journaled and wrote a lot of poetry. But for some reason, my dream of being a writer didn’t seem feasible, so I didn’t actively pursue it. I’m so, so glad I never let that dream die.

When Bree’s crush, Sean Mills, gives her his phone number, she can’t even leave a voicemail without sounding like a freak. Then she’s asked to be on Prom Court because Maisey Morgan, the school outcast nominated as a joke, declined. She apologizes to Maisey, but it’s too late. After years of torment and an ugly secret shared with their class’s cruel Pageant Queen, Maisey commits suicide. Bree is left with a lot of regret…and a revealing letter with a final request.
With Sean by her side, Bree navigates through her guilt, her parents’ divorce, and all the Prom Court drama. But when a cheating-love-triangle secret hits the fan after a night of sex, drinks, and video games, she’s left with new information about Sean and the class Pageant Queen. Bree must now speak up or stay silent. If she lets fear be her guide, she’ll lose her first love, and head to prom to avenge the death of the school outcast—as a party of one.
