In this interview series, I am interviewing author’s as if they were in a day of High School! How fun?!
Today I am interviewing Leslie Hauser author of Chasing Eveline!
About the Author
I am a YA writer and middle school teacher. I have a B.A. in English from UCLA and a Master’s degree in Educational Administration. I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and currently reside in Los Angeles, California, with my dog Mr. Darcy. When I’m not living in fictional worlds inside my head, I run all sorts of distances, torture my body at CrossFit, and DVR entirely too many television shows. I dream of one day returning to the Midwest to live on a farm. Or perhaps owning a cookie delivery service.
You walk into the doors and go to your locker, what would your bookish locker look like?
We go to homeroom, the class is talking about a book. Which book is it?
For me, math is the most frustrating part of the day! What’s the most frustrating part of being an author?
1+1 = 2… so which characters from your book should we pair together to make a disastrous combination? … as disastrous as I feel about this math class.
Your next class is art! What would you love to see drawn out from your book?
The bell rings and you grab your art supplies to take to your locker, on the way… you see your crush! Do you go talk to him or run in a different direction? Have you ever run into any swoony guys on purpose… literally or metaphorically? 😉
We get to lunch and I forgot mine…again. What did you bring… and can you share? I’m starving!
Now it’s time for gym, do you want to ditch and go to the library or stay and play? What’s your favorite sport?
Some of you may be taking notes in history, but I’m staring at the cute guy in the corner, wishing we had our own history I could be thinking about. Do you study the era you write about like I’m studying this guy, or do you wing it like I’m considering within my next conversation with this guy… I mean…did I say that for everyone to hear? Answer the question: how much research do you do for your novel?
Thanks for being a distraction in history, now lets get to music! We are late so we end up playing (what instrument)? Do you have a favorite song or genre of music you listen to when writing?
Off to Chemistry! My favorite class… wait, not like the swoony Chemistry? Drat! well, let’s hope we get to make something explode today! What was the most explosively cool thing you’ve been able to do as an author?
Today went well! We didn’t get to make anything explode but maybe next time! What book should we fan-girl over on the bus today?
Thank you so much for letting me interview you!
