Q&A WITH LISA BERGREN:

Q&A

How do you approach Young Adult Novels compared to writing Adult Novels?

I have a basic understanding of beginning, middle and end, but much of it evolves. I’m a “pantser” writer–writing by the seat of my pants, rather than an exhaustive outliner. This allows me ultimate creativity and the ability to follow where the characters lead, but it sometimes results in extensive rewrites.

When you write a series, do you have the full series planned out or does the series evolve as you write?

I have a basic understanding of beginning, middle and end, but much of it evolves. I’m a “pantser” writer–writing by the seat of my pants, rather than an exhaustive outliner. This allows me ultimate creativity and the ability to follow where the characters lead, but it sometimes results in extensive rewrites.

How do you choose your novels’ time period?

I went with medieval because I wanted to explore that time period pre-Renaissance, when life was more simple and straight-forward, when we were just on the edge of the age of enlightenment.

Where do you come up with your initial story idea?

I wanted to write a page-turner for my reluctant-reader teen girls. I liked the romance of the Twilight series and the action of the Hunger Games, and I have a passion for history (I always wish I could just pop back to another era for the day to experience what it was like)–so time travel seemed like a good option. Modern girls in ancient Italy, full of gorgeous young men fighting for their lives? It seemed like a good equation and I loved writing it. It really is the most fun I’ve ever had, writing a series. And readers can’t seem to get enough. I’ll publish a fifth novel in the River of Time Series soon.

New by Lisa Bergren:

remnants

The year is 2095. Gifted teens known as Remnants have been chosen and trained to act as humanity’s last hope to rectify the horrors that are now part of everyday life.

The Community has trained these teens as warriors and assigned them Knights of the Last Order as protectors. Together, they are a force that will be difficult to bring down.

But the Sons of Sheol, of course, are determined to do just that. As the Remnants begin their mission to course-correct humanity by saving and protecting key individuals, their enemies move to stop them, placing the entire world in peril.

Bestselling author Lisa T. Bergren presents the first book in her new YA futuristic dystopian series—The Remnants Novels—fitting in with the current dystopian trend in the marketplace.

A MUST READ BY LISA BERGREN:

WaterfallPromo-492x702

WATERFALL:

While most American teens would kill for an Italian vacation, the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. And they’re not happy to be back. Stuck on yet another hot, dusty dig, they are bored out of their minds…until they place their hands atop handprints in an ancient tomb and find themselves catapulted into the Fourteenth Century. Gabi emerges in the middle of a dream–or nightmare?–with hot Italian knights in a fierce battle. And so begins her quest to return home…while wondering if she wants to at all.
