King’s CROWNing Authors with Jennifer Niven

It’s Monday and we have our scheduled King’s Authors (Cajoling Random Observations Now) interview. Please welcome, Jennifer Niven.







Jennifer, we are waiting for your wonderfully answers.



1. You have to name a dog. The name must be from Star Trek what would it be and why?

Can it be from another TV show? (Like Supernatural? I’ve never seen Star Trek!) Um… Scotty? Because it’s one of the few Star Trek names I know.


2. Explain brain storming in four words.

Boundless, limitless imagining. Play.


3. If you are living in a house and have never seen the attic, is it possible that another family could be living up there?

It’s possible, but it’s more of a crawl space, so they would have to be very, very short.


4. Name the last book you cried reading?

My own!


5. Would you rather time travel to Woodstock or space travel to the moon?

Space travel to the moon.


6. Would you rather travel over choppy seas or air travel in story skys?

Air travel. (I get seasick!)


7. I say book launch, you say __?



8. What is your favorite 80s song and why?

There are so many, but probably “Road to Nowhere” by the Talking Heads. On the last night before college, my best friend and I ran around and around in our high school parking lot, singing that song loudly. It makes me think of endings and beginnings and the future laid out before us.


9. I say All the Bright Places, you say _____?

Make it lovely every day


10. Why is the Hollywood sign so loveable? My favorite landmark!

I think the sign is so loveable because it represents—among other things— dreams coming true.



Thank you, Jennifer.
