Interview: Tara Altebrando

This is the first of six interviews with authors of MTV Books for teens. Please check back every day this week for another interview with another author!

Earlier this year, I read The Pursuit of Happiness by Tara Altebrando. From the first sentence, I was hooked. I had the opportunity to interview Tara shortly thereafter. A few months later, I asked Tara if she thought the other authors of MTV Books would be interested in interviews. Her encouragement led to the MTV Books and Interviews Blitz you see here this week. I of course wanted to follow up with Tara as well.

For the second part of this interview, Tara provided me with such fantastic answers that I didn't need to edit a thing. I just let her speak for herself.
