One of the most popular questions I get asked in my author life, is “why YA?”
And honestly, it’s one of those tricky questions that’s hard to answer without getting too wildly personal while sitting on a panel or talking at a bookshop.
Usually it’s answered with a quick laugh about how a part of me is always going to feel like an angsty teenager, or how I’m still very much in touch with my inner youth. Maybe I’ll make a reference to playing Minecraft or Fortnite, and we’ll keep things going.
But it goes a little deeper than that.
