RT Teen Day Interview With Katie McGarry

Thank you to RT Teen Day, I'm thrilled to share an interview with one of this year's YA authors, Katie McGarry.

Why are you excited to attend RT Teen Day? 

Because I absolutely love interacting with my readers!

Who doesn't love a good romance? Whether it's the driving force of the story or snuck off to the side, I'm always up for it! What appeals to you about including romance in your stories?

I believe in the power of love! My husband and I have an amazing love story, and he is my inspiration for my books! 

What are some of your favorite romance tropes? For example, I love the enemies to lovers trope!

I love opposites attract. :-)

Who are some of your all time favorite fictional couples? Books, movies, comics... whatever!

Rhett Butler and Scarlett from Gone with the Wind, Edward and Bella from Twilight, Echo and Noah  :-)

Obviously I think Young Adult books are simply incredible. I love the variety and the quality. What's you're favorite part of being an author of young adult books?

I love writing the "firsts." First love, first kiss, first dance, first crush, first time you get butterflies....I adore every second of this. 
If you could spend a day inside the world of any book, which would you choose and why?

I would love to spend a day in any of my books from the Thunder Road series. I love the family and friendships within these books. 

What have you been reading or recommending lately? 
I'm currently reading When It's Real by Erin Watt!
