This is the first guest blog  Ciara Ballintyne writes for Lost in Fiction, you’d better enjoy it!   I came late to young adult books. OK, in all fairness to myself, YA wasn’t the big thing it is now when I was a young adult. Right, now I sound old… Anyway, I jumped straight into …

1) Why young adult? Did you choose this genre or were you ‘chosen’ by it? It’s the story that chooses me, and not all my books are for young adults. I tell each one as it needs to be told. But I enjoy writing books that engage with the real world and its complexities – …

1) Why young adult? Did you choose this genre  or were you ‘chosen’ by it? I’m not the first author to talk about how teenage characters are experiencing everything for the first time and what a compelling that is to explore for a writer. The feelings! The thrills!

1) Why young adult? Did you choose this genre or were you ‘chosen’ by it? I was chosen by it. Definitely. When I wrote my first Kelly Ann novel, My Desperate Love Diary, I’d no particular age group of readers in mind but I guess, since it was a teen girl’s diary, publishers assumed this …
