GC: What is best book you read in 2012?
JI: This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers. I am a total Courtney Summers fan girl. I love her books.
GC: What was your favorite thing you wrote in 2012?
JI: My kiddo is really into knock-knock jokes. So I wrote a bunch for her. They were all incredibly lame, but she liked them J
GC: What was your biggest writing struggle in 2012, and how did you overcome it?
JI: Writing “Book 2”, the option book, on my current contract with S&S. Second books are hard, because there’s all of these expectations wrapped up with them. It took a lot of coffee and cupcakes to get through it.
GC: What can readers expect from you in the new year?
JI: A debut in April (yay!).
GC: Write down your 'Writing Resolution of 2013!'
JI: Keep writing, keep improving, and keep eating cupcakes.
