Author Interview & Giveaway: Robyn Bavati

We are excited to welcome author,Robyn Bavati, to the nest today. Be sure to check out the giveaway details at the end of this post.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: Why did you choose to write YA?

Robyn: I just discovered that the book I wanted to write was YA – I guess a part of me is still fourteen. I love writing for teens because they’re young enough to have open minds and old enough to handle the kinds of themes I want to explore.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: Can you describe your novel in five words?

Robyn: Passion for ballet collides with religion. (Sorry, that was six.)

Andrea @ Reading Lark: What was the last book you read?

Robyn: Maine, by Courtney Sullivan.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: Were you a reader as a child?

Robyn: Yes, a real book worm.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: Who is your current book boyfriend?

Robyn: Tiny Cooper from Will Grayson, Will Grayson. It’s strictly platonic – I’m married and he’s gay.

Andrea @ Reading Lark: Who are three of your favorite authors?

Robyn: Gabrielle Williams, Fiona Wood, and Jenny Downham. (I also love Nick Hornby and have a longstanding addiction to Joanna Trollope.)

Andrea @ Reading Lark: What is your favorite bird?

Robyn: Don’t have a favorite, but the Blue Indian Peacock is simply stunning.
