My name is Amy Garvey, and my YA debut, COLD KISS, is coming out from HarperTeen in September 2011. I’m a former editor for Kensington Publishing, and I’ve previously written romance.
Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?
Wren’s world is very much like any other teen’s, except she has powers she doesn’t know how to control or explain. When her boyfriend dies in a car accident, she can’t think of anything but how to bring him back — and she does. But it doesn’t work out quite the way she thought it would …
What should readers know before stepping into your world?
That Wren is very much a normal high school kid, grieving over the first boy she ever loved, and trying really hard to balance all the pieces of her life — her friends, her family the secrets her mom has been keeping about her family’s powers, the new boy who’s a little too interested in her (and a little too attractive for his own good), and her not-dead-anymore boyfriend, who isn’t exactly the boy she lost.
Are there any special events, panels or galleys you are looking forward to?
I’m just excited to see the whole event!
Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
I haven’t been to BEA before, even as an editor, so I’m really interested to see what it’s like!
Will you be doing an autograph signing at the expo? Any other fun stuff on your agenda?
I’m not sure, to be honest! I’m going to be there on May 25 at 11:30 a.m., in the HarperTeen booth.
What other projects are you working on that you would like to tell us about?
I’m finishing up the sequel to COLD KISS now, and I’m really happy to be telling more of Wren’s story.
