Interview with L.K.Madigan, author of FLASH BURNOUT

Wow, it's been too long since I've done one of these! L.K. Madigan is stopping by today to talk about her debut, FLASH BURNOUT.

About Flash Burnout:

Fifteen-year-old Blake has a girlfriend and a friend who's a girl. One of them loves him, the other one needs him.

When he snapped a picture of a street person for his photography homework, Blake never dreamed that the woman in the photo was his friend Marissa's long-lost meth addicted mom.

In a tangle of life, death, and love, Blake will emerge with a more sharply defined snapshot of loyalty.

Our Interview:

KRISTINA: What's your very favorite thing about your book (Certain chap? Scene? Cover?)

L.K.: My favorite thing about my book is that it exists in the world. It sits on shelves in cities I’ve never even seen, waiting for readers who are not related to me.

KRISTINA: Where do you do most of your writing?

L.K.: I write at home, but I move around a lot – red chair, kitchen table, desk, green chair, and once in awhile … bed.

KRISTINA: What's the naughtiest thing you did in high school that you DIDN'T get caught doing (Fess up now!)

L.K.: Um, heh.

I, uh, (wracks brain for appropriate answer) once had a party when my parents were out of town. Nothing gone broken, no one got hurt, and they never found out.

KRISTINA: What did you do on the release day of FLASH BURNOUT?

L.K.: A book signing at Powell’s Books!

KRISTINA: What's your favorite coffee drink? (If you don't like coffee, WHY NOT?! Really, what do you like to drink then while you're writing?)

L.K.: Very favorite coffee: 100% Kona.

Favorite fancy coffee drink: iced caramel macchiato.

KRISTINA: Thanks for visiting L.K.!
