Today I’m pleased to have L.K. Madigan on the blog! L.K. is celebrating the debut of her novel: FLASH BURNOUT.
About Flash Burnout
Fifteen-year-old Blake has a girlfriend and a friend who's a girl. One of them loves him, the other one needs him.
When he snapped a picture of a street person for his photography homework, Blake never dreamed that the woman in the photo was his friend Marissa's long-lost meth addicted mom.
In a tangle of life, death, and love, Blake will emerge with a more sharply defined snapshot of loyalty.
About L.K. Madigan
L.K. Madigan is a writer living in Portland, Oregon, who finds it odd to speak in the third person. Therefore:
Hi. I am married with one son, two big black dogs, hundreds of books, and a couple of beaters, I mean vintage cars.
On to the Interview!
Me: Without giving away too many spoilers, what is your favorite part of the novel/what was the part you had the most fun writing?
L.K.: This is a hard question, because I really had fun writing the whole book! One of my favorite scenes, however, is when Blake's dad talks to him about birth control.
Me: Awkward!! What kind of writing projects are you currently working on? Or, if you aren't working on anything new, is there a different demographic/genre you wouldn't mind tackling in the future?
L.K.: I'm working on revisions for my second book, which will be released in Fall 2010. It's a YA fantasy about a surfer girl who finds a mermaid!!
Me: Cool! We’re huge Little Mermaid fans here, so this sounds awesome! And finally: who is your writing hero and why?
L.K. My writing hero is jbknowles. Not only does she shine a light on difficult subjects, her prose is beautiful and breathtaking. I look forward to her blog entries the way I would a new book by a favorite author - her posts can be funny, touching, sad, or thought-provoking ... sometimes all at once! She has volunteered her time to leading writing workshops for women in prison, and she is a wonderfully supportive voice in the online writing community - for both published and unpublished authors. Someday I'm going to meet her, and gush in person. :-)
