It’s Monday and we have our scheduled King’s C.R.O.W.N.ing Authors (Cajoling Random Observations Now) interview. Please welcome, New York Times Best Selling YA author, Brenna Yovanoff.
Brenna , we are waiting for your wonderfully answers.
1. If you could invent a new Halloween costume what would it be?
American McGee’s Alice. Because there is nothing better than hack-slashing through Wonderland with a carving knife while trading barbs with my snarky friend, the Cheshire Cat.
I’m not sure yet that I would—I’d have to see. I’m thinking I’d just settle in and invest in some earplugs.
I do not know. However, I am the actual owner of an actual giant plush soft-toy animal called a Rary, because there was this short story my dad read when I was little that was basically just one long set-up to a bad pun. The people in the future had to arduously carry this huge, immobile animal up to the top of a very tall building and fling it off the edge, and then at the end, one of them said, “It’s a long, long way to tip a rary.” Ha. Ha. Ha.
8. If I say manual drive you say_______
Thank you, Brenna.
