Interview With Jennifer E. Smith

By Sara Aslagson-Sahar

Jennifer E. Smith, is the author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, The Geography of You and Me, This Is What Happy Looks Like, and many more. With such unique titles and riveting stories I often find myself staying up all night to finish her books. Following the characters as they deal with life’s realities, such as going off to college or meeting your Dad’s soon-to-be wife for the first time and the realness of the people who join you, and the people you leave behind.

After getting sucked into reading her book Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between I realized she would be someone perfect to interview and decided to reach out to her. Thankfully, she agreed.  Keep Reading!

Interview with Sophie Kinsella

 

By Stephanie Romero

sk_maddie_polaroid (2)Sophie Kinsella just released her first Young Adult novel this past summer called Finding Audrey. Sophie Kinsella is the bestselling author of the Shopaholic series as well as many standalone novels. A novel from the Shopaholic series was adapted into a movie in 2009. She started her writing career with novels written under her real name, Madeleine Wickham. In Finding Audrey, Audrey’s journey to recovery with the help of Dr. Sarah, her family, and Linus is just the type of story Sculpt is interested in exploring. It’s difficult to write about a mental illness authentically, but she did so in this novel. I am thrilled to feature this interview.
