Today’s the day…the last day of #YAReaderWeek. And I couldn’t be more thrilled than to save my last post for the crazy-talented Kate Jarvik Birch. Check out what she’s working on next, and don’t forget to enter the raffle to win a ton of cool prizes.
I’m guessing that, like most writers, I’ve got a few too many projects going on at once. Right now, I’m busily working on the sequel to my novel, PERFECTED. The second book in the series has been a really fun chance to expand the world that I built in book one. The readers are going to get a much broader look at the world of engineered human pets as well as a frightening glimpse into the black market, where used pets are bought and sold.
As if that didn’t keep me busy enough, I’m also in the middle of revising a MG novel that I co-wrote with a friend. It’s about two unlikely friends and the very human desire for magic to be real.
I’ve always got a million ideas simmering in the back of my head and I’m dying to try my hand at writing and illustrating a picture book. Also, this might just be the year that I attempt to write a screenplay.
