Tired of young adult novels about sparkly vampires and half-naked werewolves? So was Nashville resident Victoria Schwab. A young adult herself, Victoria has created her own fairy tale/creature mythology in The Near Witch, the story of a young woman who discovers a stranger on the moors of the town of Near at the same time the children of the village begin to disappear.
Victoria was kind enough to take time out of her book tour to talk to HeGeekSheGeek.com about her new book. In part 1 of 3, we learn about the kinds of life experiences that shape a young author, what it was like being picked up by Disney Hyperion for her first title, and the early influences on Victoria’s writing.
Come back tomorrow when we delve into the supernatural with Victoria Schwab!
