An Interview with Suzanne Young

I recently interviewed soon-to-be author and current tenner Suzanne Young. Here it is:

1. What's it like being a tenner?

It’s very cool! I get to meet and hang out with the most amazing authors! It’s pretty crazy to think that all of us will have our books snuggled together on the shelves next year. It’s a bonding experience.

2. Could you give us a quick summary about your new book, The Naughty List?

As leader of the SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens), Tessa’s mission is twofold: pep preservation and relationship salvation. That’s right, Tessa is a head cheerleader whose night job is catching cheating boyfriends in the act! Thank goodness her own relationship with Aiden is strawberry-smoothie purrfect—well, almost.

The Naughty List is already at maximum capacity when sultry Chloe Ferril transfers to Washington High. Tessa knows this predatory vixen won’t stop hunting Aiden until her claws are planted firmly in his backside…

But Tessa’s in for an even bigger shock when Aiden’s name shows up on The Naughty List, and she’s finally forced to confront the unthinkable: is her own boyfriend just as naughty as all the rest?

3. Did you have any input on the cover of your novel? Do you like the cover?

I think the window frame on the cover is brilliant because it’s like we’re spying too! But I had nothing to do with it. Ha ha. But I really do like it! And the best part is that each book in the series will be framed in a different color.

4. Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

Keep writing. I actually really mean that. The Naughty List was the fifth book I wrote, and even after it, I wrote several more. It was how I learned to write. So just keep writing!

5. Is there anything that you would like to add?

Just that I’m so happy at how much support the blogging community has given me so far! You guys are really great! Thank you.

I would like to thank Suzanne Young for doing this interview.
