Welcome to the latest YA Authors as YAs interview!
Our goal? To prove that your favorite authors — no matter how AWESOME and COOL you think they are — were once awkward, weird, and they geeked out about fandoms and guilty-pleasure music JUST LIKE YOU when they were teens. (Most of them still do, you know, and that’s totally COOL, because being yourself is the ultimate in EPIC COOLNESS.)
Don’t believe me?
Maybe Megan Whitmer, author of BETWEEN, coming your way from Spencer Hill Press on July 29, 2014, can convince you with tales from her teen years.
You must check out her teen HAIR, people. Oh, the fluffy goodness. It burns!

When a supernatural freak of nature forces her family to separate, seventeen-year-old Charlie Page must turn to her frustrating (yet gorgeous) neighbor, Seth, to help reunite them. Seth whisks Charlie to Ellauria—a magical world filled with the creatures of myths and legends—and tells her of the Fellowship, the group charged with protecting mystical beings from human discovery. (All except Bigfoot; that attention whore is a total lost cause.) But when Charlie learns that she’s under the Fellowship’s protection herself, well, “stressed” is an understatement.
Ellauria should be the safest place for Charlie while the Fellowship works to find her family, but things in the mystical realm aren’t what they seem.
Magic is failing, creatures are dying, and the Fellowship insists Charlie holds the key to saving everyone. With her family still missing and the danger in Ellauria growing, Charlie doesn’t know who she can trust. She’s dealing with a power she never asked for, falling for a guy she can’t have, and being forced to choose between her destiny and her heart. And if she chooses wrong, she could destroy magic forever.
Charlie may be in over her head.
Megan Whitmer loves all things Southern, and has a soft spot for football, kissing scenes, and things that sparkle. She lives in Kentucky with her family. When she’s not writing, Megan spends her time drinking absurd amounts of coffee and dancing in her kitchen. Between is her debut novel. You can find her on twitter (@meganwhitmer), Facebook (www.facebook.com/authormeganwhitmer), and YouTube (www.youtube.com/whitmermegan), or visit her web site at www.meganwhitmerwrites.com.
