late again, I know. But I've been insanely busy recently with Christmas and everything.
Alas, I couldn't name many YA authors I've met in person. So like the others who couldn't fulfill a list, I'll have to list the writers that I want to meet.
JOHN GREEN (Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, etc.)
Enough said, I think. Because, well, who wouldn't want to meet John Green? Someone who's never read any of his work, I suppose. I pity them.
Anyway, I seriously doubt that anyone such as John Green would ever come within a hundred miles of my small corner of south-west England, being far too awesome an author, with far too many fans in more populous places to bother with towns like mine.
MARGARET WILD (Jinx, One Night)
So I can beg her for the secret of writing such powerful verse novels.
LISA SCHROEDER (Far from You, I Heart You, You Haunt Me, etc.)
AIDAN CHAMBERS (This is All, Now I Know, etc.)
Because from what of his works I've read, he seems like a very philosophical sort of person. The chances are slim but I'd love to talk to him for a very, very long time about the Dance sequence, which I'm in the midst of devouring.
ANNE-LAURE BONDOUX (The Princess and the Captain, Life as it Comes, etc.)
My all-time favourite foreign YA author. I don't know if she can speak English, and I can't speak French either, but if ever I meet the author of the amazing novel that is The Princess and the Captain then I'd have to try French anyway.
Well, that's all. Now I'll post this and have to catch up with FIVE (challenge, that is) posts from the last couple of days that I've missed.
