Interview mit Amy Plum (Englisch)

Posted on

Ich hatte die Chance Amy Plum ein paar Fragen zu stellen :D

Aber erstmal ein paar will ich euch Amy Plum vorstellen:

Geboren wurde Amy Plum in Birmingham, Alabama. Schon bald lockten sie große Städte wie Paris oder London hinaus in die Welt. Eine Zeit lang arbeitete sie als Kunsthistorikerin in New York, bevor sie schließlich mit ihrem Ehemann ein großes Bauernhaus in der französischen Provinz bezog. Wann immer es die turbulenten Tage mit ihren beiden Kindern und ihrem Hund Ella erlauben, sitzt Amy Plum in dem kleinen alten Steinhäuschen in ihrem Garten und schreibt an ihren Romanen.

Interview – Susan Quinn (Englisch)

Open-Minds---Gefahrliche-Gedanken--Mindjack--1--B00IYPBLB0_xxl

Two month ago i have read „Open Minds“ from Susan Quinn. It is a great book and the first part of a trilogy.(  Klick for review. )

About the book :

When everyone reads minds, a secret is a dangerous thing to keep.

Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can’t read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can’t be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf’s mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf. But lies tangle around her, and she’s dragged deep into a hidden underworld of mindjackers, where having to mind control everyone she loves is just the beginning of the deadly choices before her.

About Susan Quinn :

Susan Kaye Quinn is the author of the bestselling young adult SF Mindjack Trilogy. The Dharian Affairs trilogy is her excuse to dress up in corsets and fight with swords. She also has a dark-and-gritty SF serial for ages 17+ called The Debt Collector and a middle grade fantasy called Faery Swap

It’s possible she’s easily distracted.

Susan grew up in California, got a bunch of engineering degrees (B.S. Aerospace Engineering, M.S. Mechanical Engineering, Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering) and worked everywhere from NASA to NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research). She designed aircraft engines, studied global warming, and held elected office (as a school board member). Now that she writes novels, her business card says „Author and Rocket Scientist,“ but she mostly sits around in her pajamas in awe that she gets paid to make stuff up.

All her engineering skills come in handy when dreaming up dangerous mindpowers, future dystopic worlds, and slightly plausible steampunk inventions. For her stories, of course. Just ignore that stuff in the basement.

Susan writes from the Chicago suburbs with her three boys, two cats, and one husband. Which, it turns out, is exactly as much as she can handle.
You can find her on Facebook way too often. Or you can reach her the old-fashioned way: susankayequinn (at) comcast (dot) net

 

I ask Susan if she had a little time for an interview and she said“ Of course “

Thank you Susan for the nice interview :smile:
