Well first of all, Shana thank you so much for doing this interview with Me, My Shelf and I.
Well let’s start right off then. Was the title always “The Boyfriend Thief” or did it start as something different since you’ve been working on it for a while? (Since the age of 16)
That’s pretty amazing. On your site, you said that when you first worked on this, Avery was a lot different…meaner. How did you manage to tone her down to the character she is now?
Then there’s Zac…did your inspiration for Zac’s job come from you working at a lock shop when you were younger?
It’s always good to be able to fall back on something right? Did you ever have a friend like Molly – or did you have more that were like Hannah growing up?
Did you always have in mind while writing this story that Hannah would never truly forgive Avery?
Well as quoted from your book “Maybe some things can’t be fixed”. Perhaps such is true for Avery and Hannah. Now I love when authors make playlists for their books, and you have done such for "The Boyfriend Thief" - what is your favorite song from that playlist...or do you have one? (I'm a sucker for That's When I Love You)
Seriously, everyone take a listen to the playlist. It’s kind of epic. What did you aspire to be growing up?
What is the biggest thing you've taken away from writing?
Do you think others’ styles of writing have influenced your own?
Speaking of, you mentioned that one of your favorite writers is Meg Cabot - she happens to be my absolute fav and the reason I started reading again - so, what is your favorite book by her?
Do you think in writing, you’ll always stick to the YA genre?
What is the best piece of advice you can give someone, whether it be an aspiring writer, avid reader, or just someone in general?
What is one of the best lessons you’ve learned in life?
Well I’m weird, so that explains a lot! And a silly sort of question (because everyone seriously needs them) - If you could take three items to a deserted island - what would they be and why?
Well, that’s all the time we have with awesome author Shana Norris,
