Q/A with Bokerah Brumley

What’s the hardest part about writing YA lit?:

I think the hardest part is coming up with something original, or a fresh take on something that’s been done before.

When exactly did you know you wanted to be a writer?:

I was eight. I wrote a poem for my mother. It was awful, horrible, and the sort of thing only a mother could love. After that, I wrote letters upon letters upon letters. For a summer reading program, I wrote an essay and won $50. I think that cemented it. During my teens,

I wrote a few MG novels that were also awful. More letters in my twenties, and here I am in my thirties, in the general window where more writers start their career.
Have you found any clever ways to market your books to YA readers?: No, nothing clever, but all the normal ways – adding one reader at a time and advertisements. I’m a bit addicted to Twitter.

What YA books have had the biggest influence on your writing?:

The YA adaption of “At the Back of the North Wind,” “The Hunger Games,” and a few other YA titles from author Erin Hayes. The other influences have been adult novels.
