Sensational 7 Q & A with Suzanne Young (Author of A Need So Beautiful)!

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




Suzanne Young is a brilliant scientist. Not really. But she is a former middle school teacher turned zookeeper (mother). When Suzanne's not fending off zombie squirrels or narrating her daughter's Barbie soap operas, she can be found camping on the Oregon coast or writing obsessively.

ANEED SO BEAUTIFUL hit shelves today!

If you were given a chance to travel back in time, what year or place would you go / Why?
I think I would only go back about 25 years. I’d want to revisit the place where my family would go camping in NY when we were kids and spend more time with my grandparents. It was a magical time and I still miss it.

Describe your novel in seven words or less?
Love, heartbreak and sacrifice.
Please share with us about your favorite book and fictional crush to date?
I really like Dexter from Sarah Dessen’s This Lullaby. And one of my favorite book series is Libba Bray’s A Great and Terrible Beauty. But I have so many favorites!

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play thelead role as you/ Why?
My life? That would be boring. But I wouldn’t object to being played by Reese Witherspoon.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be – please explain?
Revise, Rinse, Repeat-The Story of My Life. Because honestly, sometimes it feels like that’s all I do.

How would you describe yourself/life in seven words?
Family, writing, revising, writing, laundry, friends and True Blood.


Bonus:

**Is there any additional info you would like to share with your readers about what’s next for you and your books?**
Sure, I’m really excited to work on the sequel to A Need so Beautiful coming out next summer! It’s called A Want so Wicked.


Thanks for stopping by Suzanne!
