Author Interview with Katie French:



 What’s your favourite thing about spring?

I live in Michigan, so our winter often feels like the White Walkers might come strolling out of my yard at any point December through March. When the snow finally melts and the air warms up enough not to hurt your face, it is truly a magical time. But then I have to finally shave my legs.

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

I get to play make-believe for a living. I pretty sure only authors, artists, and politicians get that privilege.

Tell us more about your books.

The first book in my popular YA series, The Breeders, goes a little something like this.

Sixteen-year-old Riley Meemick is one of the world's last free girls. When Riley was born, her mother escaped the Breeders, the group of doctors using cruel experiments to bolster the dwindling human race. Her parents do everything possible to keep her from their clutches-- moving from one desolate farm after another to escape the Breeders' long reach. The Breeders control everything- the local war lords, the remaining factories, the fuel. They have unchecked power in this lawless society. And they're hunting Riley.

Are there any books involved in the YA Spring Fling that you’re secretly lusting after?

The covers on so many of these books are AMAZING! I want to read them all.

 What was the last YA book you read?

I’m currently reading Paper Towns by John Green. Before that, I just finished The House of the Scorpion. Both are very different from each other and each were excellent.

What are your top tips for surviving a zombie apocalypse?

I have a whole plan in my head and it starts with turning on all the taps to collect water and a trip to raid the Outdoor World a mile away. Also, I never throw out canned food. It drives my husband crazy, but I always tell him, “We might need that if there’s a zombie apocalypse.” He’s a very patient man.

Where can readers find your books?

On Amazon.
