Interview with author Tara Hudson

If you have yet check out my review for Hereafter, you can read it here!

1. Why a ghost story? Do you remember the first one you ever told, or one that you loved telling your friends? 

 Certain places – cemeteries, abandoned buildings, sparsely traveled roadways – always make me feel like someone is watching me. When I began to create HEREAFTER, that “someone” turned out to be Amelia. But although I've always loved ghost stories, Amelia's is the first one I've ever told.

 2. What is a book you've read recently, that you think everyone should read? 

 Strictly in YA, Jen Violi's PUTTING MAKEUP ON DEAD PEOPLE is a funny, raw, incredible book; I finished it in one day.

 3. Could you tell us about your pets? I've heard you had quite a few. 

 I do, and they're all terrible! I have two English Bulldogs: Peaches, the imperious and demanding breeder-dog, and Penny, the total spazzy and nervous rescue dog. Then there is Haruko, my sweet but needy cat. Last year, I lost Baby, a cat with Feline Leukemia, and Gilly, my 21 year old chemically-grown frog. And no, you didn't read that wrong.

 4. Any big plans for your release day?

Release day was awesome – I spent it in Chicago, speaking to a group of high schoolers at a public library, and then signing books at Anderson's. I am incredibly spoiled!

 5. Could you describe your novel in three words?

 A ghostly mystery

 6. Which place on your Dark Days tour are you most excited to go to? 

I was most excited to go to Austin, Texas, because it's so close to my home state of Oklahoma, but Portland ended up being a wonderful surprise. What a gorgeous city!

 7. Is there anything else you'd like to say to everybody? 

 Thanks for being a part of HEREAFTER!
