If you were given a chance to travel back in time, what year or place would you go / Why?
I would love to see North America before so much of it was developed, before the rivers were dammed and the original forests were cut. But then, I am grateful for many things we have now that we didn’t always have in the past: antibiotics and women’s rights, to name a couple.
Describe your novel in seven words or less?
I can do it in three: Secrecy, loss, obsession.
Please share with us about your favorite book and fictional crush to date?
I can’t pick just one favorite book. But I currently have an author crush on Neal Shusterman. He did a great job with the dystopic YA novel Unwind, the humorous The Schwa Was Here, and a novel of the possible afterlife, Everlost. I don’t know how he can write so many different kinds of books and make them all so good.
If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be / Why?
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you / Why?
Maybe Jenna Fischer (she plays Pam on The Office). She has a very natural, down-to-earth way about her.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
I have a terrible time coming up with titles. So maybe they should call it The Book with No Name. Or Jennifer R. Hubbard: In Search of a Title.
How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
Even when I write flash fiction, I can’t yet distill life down to seven words.
Thanks Jennifer for stopping by!
