Author Interview: Lee Nichols

Lee Nichols is the author of Deception: A Haunting Emma Novel. Check out my review of Deception and have a chance to win a copy!

GBTQ: Deception is your first novel for young adults. How did you decide to write for YA?

LN: I originally conceived of Deception as an adult novel, but kept making the main character younger and younger until I realized I really wanted to write a YA novel. I love what's happening in YA right now, it's a really exciting place to be.

GBTQ: Do you believe in ghosts?

LN: Not in the way that I imagined them here, but I do believe places and things can feel like they're haunted by the spirits of previous occupants or owners.

GBTQ: Emma has a lot of different powers as a ghostkeeper-what power of hers would you want?

LN: Communicating would obviously be the best. I'd just want to talk to them.

GBTQ: What books are currently on your nightstand to be read?

Unfortunately, I can't afford to buy every book I read, which is why I love libraries. Just went yesterday and brought home American Wife, by Curtis Sittenfeld, Kissing Games of the World by Sandi Kahn Shelton and Very LeFreak by Rachel Cohn--I'll probably read this one first.

Enjoy your books Lee-and thanks for stopping by-I love authors who love their libraries!:)

Check out Lee Nichols' first young adult novel, Deception!

  1. Good luck Lee. I've heard great things about your book. I can't wait to read it. And I love libraries too for the same reason as you.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?

Tween Tuesday: Drizzle by Kathleen Van Cleve

Rating: 2.5/5 Stars Genre: Magical Realism Release Date: 3/4/2010 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Polly Peabody lives on a magical farm. They grow chocolate rhubarb, it rains every Monday at exactly 1:00, and her best friend is a plant named Harry. When the rain stops, Polly's brother falls ill, and her aunt wants to sell the farm, Polly must figure out a way to save her beloved home. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Drizzle is on our state book list and one of our Chat & Chew book club picks. The kids reviews were mixed on this one and sadly, it was my least favorite of all the books we read for Chat & Chew. The kids that liked it said it had action, but for me the plot was slow and dragged too much. The book could have been edited down and I lost interest in the story. I liked the magical farm that Polly lived on, but the magic wasn't enough to hold my interest. I felt like the plot went around in circles too much and never got going. The ending was also a bit
