Sensational 7 Q & A with Mindi Scott (Author of Freefall)!

Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to hang out with your favorite author(s)? In an attempt to get a better understanding of authors, my Sensational Seven Q & A takes a closer or more personal look at these authors to give you a glimpse of the personalities behind the writing of your favorite books.

“Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book; a personality which, by birth and quality, is pledged to the doctrines there set forth, and which exists to see and state things so, and not otherwise.” By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Avid lover of sun and hater of rain, Mindi Scott has somehow managed to reside in the Pacific Northwest corner of the U.S. all her life. She currently lives with her drummer husband and four cats near Seattle, Washington. Please visit her online at

FREEFALL, Mindi's debut novel  is in stores today!

If you were given a chance to travel back in time, what year or place would you go / Why?
Sometime in the late-60s. I would have loved, loved, loved to see the Doors in concert!

Describe your novel in seven words or less?
Boy meets girl. Life stops sucking.

Please share with us about your favorite book and fictional crush to date?
My favorite book is MERMAIDS by Patty Dann. My favorite fictional crush is Todd Gaines (played by Timothy Olyphant) from the movie GO.

If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be / Why?
Oh! Can I be someone in the Mortal Instruments series? I don't care whom; I just think it would be fun!

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play thelead role as you/ Why?
Summer Glau, because she is a ballerina, and a stranger on an elevator recently told me that I look like a ballerina. Ha! Also, because I think she's very cool. :-)

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT. It's from "Lazy Eye" by Silversun Pickups, which I've decided is sort of my theme song.

How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
Quirky, introspective, honest, perfectionist, reading/writing girl.


**Is there any additional info you would like to share with your readers about what’s next for you and your books?**
My writing love and passion is for contemporary YA of the dark and emotional persuasion. So I'm writing more of that!

Thanks for stopping by Mindi!
