Author Interview! Stephanie Hale, author of Revenge of the Homecoming Queen and Twisted sisters!

1) Were you ever prom/homecoming queen in high school?

I was nominated to the homecoming court one year, but sadly, I was never queen!
2) Is there anything embarassing that had ever happened at your Prom/Homecoming dance that you can remember to you or other people?

The year of my junior prom on a group trip to the bathroom, one of my friends ran into a brick wall because she was staring at her crush! We still laugh about it.
3)Where did the theme of the book Revenge come from?

When I was a freshman, the boys in our class voted the least popular guy to the homecoming court. I added some romance, comedy, and mystery and Revenge was born.
4)Did you always want to be an author? If not, when did you find out you wanted to?

No, I wanted to be a zoo keeper, a lawyer, then I just wanted to win the lottery. I wasn't a kid who spent hours making up stories or keeping a diary but I had always loved books. I was about twenty-eight when I finally tried my hand at writing and I haven't stopped since!
5)How long did it take you to finish and publish Revenge and Twisted Sisters?

I had longer to write Revenge because it was my first published novel. Revenge took about nine months and Twisted Sisters took about five months.
6) Where in the world do you get your ideas!? What do you do when you are all out of ideas of a book, or are stuck on a part?
This is always such a hard question. I honestly don't know where I get my ideas. They just started coming to me one day and I hope they never stop. :)
Thanks so much for the wonderful interview Steph!!!
