MusicMy taste is highly erratic, generally embarassing and overall, unrepresentative of my personality. I like folk music. I like show tunes. I like standards. I like silence. If you go to my website and look in the top of the right-hand column, there's a link to the iMix for my book Dramarama. Those are some of my favorite musical theater songs of all time.
BooksThe Boyfriend List, Fly on the Wall, Not Like I'm Jealous or Anything, The Boy Book, Dramarama. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. How to Be Bad. Those are ones I wrote. Or wrote part of.
I write novels for teenagers. I'm the author of The Boyfriend List, The Boy Book, Fly on the Wall, Dramarama, How to Be Bad (together with Sarah Mlynowski and Lauren Myracle), The Treasure Map of Boys and The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. Real Live Boyfriends, the fourth in my Ruby Oliver series, comes out Dec 28, 2010. At my website you'll find a blog, plus all kinds of information on my books, preview chapters, ridiculous quizzes, videos and more.
Or come friend me, Sarah Mlynowski and Lauren Myracle at the How to Be Bad myspace page, which has video of our road trips, secrets about our bad pasts, and podcasts.
I have been known to wear pink and orange together. I have dyed my hair quite a number of different colors but never blue. I am prone to psychological back pain, and when I tell myself it's all psychological the pain just moves to my calf muscles.
