Find Out Friday: Kristina Springer

What inspired you to write a book for young adults?

It kind of just happened. I started writing fiction about 4 or so years ago and the ideas I had all seemed to take place at the high school age. And the voice came to me pretty naturally too.

What's the best part about being a writer?

There are a lot of wonderful parts but I guess the best would be seeing your book in a bookstore.

Are you working on any other books?

Lots! I've written five more since The Espressologist. One of them (My Fake Boyfriend is Better Than Yours) is coming out next year and I'm hoping to sell more.

What's your favorite young adult book?

Oh, that's hard!! I read so much and there are tons of great ones. My favorite right no
w is the funniest book I ever remember reading- A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker. I read it as an arc but it will be out in Feb 2010.

The Espressologist Questions:

What was your favorite part to write in The Espressologist?

All the coffee descriptions.

Where did you get the idea for The Espressologist?

I got it while sitting in my local Starbucks.

Was the cover what you imagined it looking like?

No, it turned out way better than I imagined.

Were any of the characters inspired from people you know in real life?

Heck yeah! There were A LOT of characters in my books (people coming in to be matched and such) and I did end up basing a lot of them on people I know or people that happened to be walking into the Starbucks that I was writing in.

Thanks so much Kristina!
