Author Interview with Marie Godley

What’s the hardest part of writing YA fiction?

Trying to make sure the content is relevant and at the right level. Every teenager/Young adult is different so what will appeal to one, won’t to others. Trying to decide can be a bit of a nightmare, so I go with my instinct and then ask my kids, knowing not everyone will like it.

When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

There was no exact moment. I wrote a picture book story and had that published, and then found myself writing more and more, and for older audiences. Now it isn’t often that I’m without a story on the go.

Have you found any clever ways to market your books to YA readers?

 

Sadly not. I’m plugging away but if I ever find one I’ll be sure to share it with my fellow authors.

What YA books have had the greatest influence on your writing?

I read a lot of YA, from indie authors to traditional ‘big names’. Every one has something to offer. I love Kristin Cashore’s Graceling series, also Kate Lauren Fallen series.
