All About Writing

How did your interest in writing originated?
Judy Blume books. Reading her fiction was like reading my own diaries.

What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
I write mostly during the evenings and on weekends.

Do you work with outline or just write?
Both. It depends on the project.

What was the hardest part in writing your book? The easiest?
Hardest: Making time to write. Easiest: Eh…it’s all pretty hard.

What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Watch movies.

Finish the Sentence
1. The difference between fiction and reality is you can’t relive, pause, or fast-forward reality.
2. Research is what I'm doing when I’m not writing what I know.
3. I can write better when I have a hot cocoa by my laptop.
4. Sleep is an excellent way to procrastinate.
5. A room without a book is a room with no view.

Before this all happened, the closest I'd ever come to getting physical with a guy was playing the board game Operation. Okay, so maybe that sounds pathetic, but it's not like there were any guys at my high school who I cared to share more than three words with, let alone my body.

Then I met Wes, a track star senior from across town. Maybe it was his soulful blue eyes, or maybe my hormones just started raging. Either way, I was hooked. And after a while, he was too. I couldn't believe how intense my feelings became, or the fact that I was seeing—and touching—parts of the body I'd only read about in my Gray's Anatomy textbook. You could say Wes and I experienced a lot of firsts together that spring. It was scary. It was fun. It was love.

And then came the fall.

Title: Anatomy of a Single Girl (Anatomy #2)
Genre/s: YA/NA, Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Date Published: January 8, 2013

With Judy Blume-like honesty and insight, this sequel to Anatomy of a Boyfriend is about life after first love--romance, sex, friendship, family, and the ups and downs of life as a single girl.

After everything that happened—my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup—jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It’s not that I didn’t want to fall in love again, since that’s about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I’d lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing—and devastatingly cute—guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one.

The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.

But I couldn’t avoid my future forever.

In Daria Snadowsky’s daring follow-up to Anatomy of a Boyfriend, eighteen-year-old Dominique explores the relationship between love and lust, and the friendships that see us through.
