Deception Blog Tour Part I: Interview & Contest!

Today's interview: Lee Nichols
If you're interested in winning a copy of the book, read on for details!!
Bookworm: Welcome, Lee! To start off, please tell us what the inspiration behind Deception is.
Lee: I wanted to write a contemporary Gothic mystery with a kick-butt heroine.

Bookworm: What is your favorite ghost story?
Lee: I loved old Barbara Michaels novels, where the ghost haunting the mansion the heroine lives in is always helping her solve a mystery and getting her to fall for the right guy.

Bookworm: Speaking of ghosts, if you could meet/talk to a ghost, who would it be (celebrity, deceased famly member, etc)?
Lee: I would love to introduce my grandmother to my son. They would've adored each other.

Bookworm: What's next for Emma?
Lee: In Betrayal, the second Haunting Emma book due out in March, her powers grow stronger and she gets tougher, like hard-core. Plus she learns a lot about her parents' past and struggles to make things work with Bennett.

Bookworm: What is your favorite thing about writing for young adults?
Lee: It's just a really fun genre to be in. I think more exciting things are happening in young adult fiction than anywhere else right now.

Bookworm: What book have you recently read and loved?
Lee: Along with everyone else, I love the Hunger Games series. Can't wait for the third. Team Peeta!
Thanks so much, Lee! Deception is released June 8, 2010 by Bloomsbury. Expect a review soon!
Many thanks to Kate Lied for letting me participate in this Bloomsbury tour!
