Q/A with YA author P.D. Workman

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

When exactly did you know you wanted to be a writer?: Writing has always been a part of me. I have little construction paper books that I made before I could even read or write. I would scribble long lines and ask my mom to tell me if I had made any letters. I continued to make short books, and wrote my first novel-length fiction at age 12. I’ve been writing ever since.

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

S.E. Hinton’s books, especially The Outsiders
Jay Bennet’s books
I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Joanne Greenburg
Call of the Wild by Jack London
Short author bio: P.D. Workman writes riveting young adult/suspense fiction about mental illness, addiction, and abuse.

For as long as P.D. Workman can remember, the blank page has held an incredible allure. After a number of false starts, she finally wrote her first complete novel at the age of twelve. It was full of fantastic ideas. It was the spring board for many stories over the next few years.  Then, forty-some novels later, P.D. Workman finally decided to start publishing. Lots more are on the way!

P.D. Workman is a devout wife and a mother of one, born and raised in Alberta, Canada. She is a homeschooler and an Executive Assistant. She has a passion for art and nature, creative cooking for special diets, and running. She loves to read, to listen to audio books, and to share books out loud with her family. She is a technology geek with a love for all kinds of gadgets and tools to make her writing and work easier and more fun. In person, she is far less well-spoken than on the written page and tends to be shy and reserved with all but those closest to her.
