Pam Bachorz is Here!

Hi Everyone! I have another Deb Interview for you!

Today I’m happy to have Pam Bachorz on the blog. Pam is celebrating the debut of her novel, CANDOR, which I’ve heard nothing but AMAZING things about.

First. . . .

About Candor

Oscar Banks has everything under control. In a town where his father brainwashes everyone, he’s found a way to secretly fight the subliminal Messages. He’s got them all fooled: Oscar’s the top student and the best-behaved teen in town. Nobody knows he’s made his own Messages to deprogram his brain. But then Nia Silva moves to Candor, and Oscar falls in love. He must choose whether to let Nia be lost to brainwashing—or to sacrifice himself.

About Pam Bachorz

Pam Bachorz grew up in a small town in the Adirondack foothills, where she participated in every possible performance group and assiduously avoided any threat of athletic activity. Pam attended college in Boston and finally decided she was finished after earning four degrees. Her mother is not happy that Pam’s degrees are stored under her bed.

Pam lives just outside Washington, DC with her husband and their son. She likes to read books not aimed at her age group, go to museums and theater performances, and watch far too much television. She even goes jogging. Reluctantly.

As far as she knows, Pam has never been brainwashed. Or maybe that’s just what she’s supposed to say.

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?

Pam: I loved the ending. It's a twist, and a surprise, so I'm not going to say more!

Me: 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?

Pam: I'm working on another YA project for Egmont USA. It's too soon to say, I think, what it's about but suffice it to say that I won't be straying all that far from the dark outlook on power and humanity. :)

Me: Who is your writing hero and why?

Pam: I admire people who turn out quality books, one after the other, and are in it for the long haul. Gail Giles comes to mind.

Me: Awesome!
