Author Guest Post: Margaux Froley

Please welcome author Margaux Froley to GreenBeanTeenQueen. Her debut novel, Escape Theory, was just released on March 12! I love asking about libraries and Margaux answered the question, "When has a library really made a difference for you as a writer."

I’m a big fan of libraries, so this is a tough question. Last year my boyfriend and I decided to move to Los Angeles from New York. We got to Los Angeles and stayed the first few days with my dad and his wife in their house near Santa Monica. I’m from here, so it was nice to be back near my family, and my family was happy to have me. But I also vividly remember the first morning, Joel and I woke up, had breakfast, and our intention was to sit down and write that day. My dad’s house is big-ish, so there seemed to be plenty of space to write. He even had the housekeeper clean off a big table just for us. We got our laptops out, our coffees ready just how we like, and sat down to write. It was going to be a great writing day.

But, within the first five minutes we could hear my dad and his wife bicker about getting their printer to work, they have small birds that suddenly made a huge amount of constant noise, and the phone kept ringing. Without even saying a word, we just exchanged a look, and very quickly we packed up our computers and just grabbed our stuff and left the house. I started driving and didn’t quite know where we could go to find any peace. I vaguely remembered that Santa Monica had a new library, and we ended up there. The Santa Monica library is a beautiful, modern building with lots and lots of space and bright windows. We were in heaven. I quickly got a library card, and we ended up spending most of the next week writing our own pilot scripts at that library. I still love that library because it provided such a safe haven when we’re wandering travelers just trying to find a quiet place to write.
