What inspired you to write Double Clutch?
Double Clutch actually started as an idea right after I read New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. I felt so bad for Jacob Black, and started to think about a love triangle that involved a girl and two guys she really, really cared about and was torn over. I was also really homesick for NJ, since we’d just moved to GA. Brenna’s voice was really loud in my head, and I just started writing like crazy!

Can you describe Double Clutch in one sentence?
What happens when you fall in love with two amazing guys on the same day?

Why is Double Clutch called Double Clutch?
Double clutch refers to a breathing technique that runners use. The runner breathes out once for every two breaths in. Brenna gets involved in running, and she’s involved with these two amazing guys, so there’s so much more she’s taking in than she’s able to put back out.

Which Author do you admire the most?
My all-time favorite writer is Amy Tan. Her writing is gorgeous, her characters leap off the page, and I reread her books every single year. I love The Joy Luck Club. Every time I read that book, I find new things to love.

Why is a Raven like a writing desk?
Both are super cool accessories for getting a book written…one day I’ll have an office with a raven AND a writing desk in it. For now, all I need is my laptop, which comes with me wherever I go.

A huge thank you to Liz and The {Teen} Book Scene for this amazing post.  It was a lot of fun!
