About PARANORMALCY : Sixteen-year-old Evie's job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone--or something--starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she's worked hard to help become productive members of society, she's got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal.
Normal is so overrated.
About Kiersten: Kiersten White has one tall husband and two small children. She lives near the ocean but writes books and blogs instead of hanging out on the beach. Lame, sure, but at least her skin will stay nice.
Favorite comfort food?
Chocolate, of course, and there's something wrong with anyone who feels otherwise.
Favorite game (think summer, flashlight tag, Marco Polo)?
No Bears Are Out Tonight.
Sun worshipper, spray tan or SPF 50?
SPF 50 for sure.
Beach or lake? Boat or shore?
Beach and shore or lake and boat.
Air conditioning or open windows?
Air conditioning! I'm all about sweat-avoidance.
Favorite summer drink?
Lemonade with fresh mint leaves crushed and floating inside.
Ghost story or Truth or Dare?
Truth? Or dare?
Truth--it was always less humiliating than dare!
What singer/musician/band is a must have for The Fort soundtrack?
Snow Patrol if we're feeling mellow, hellogoodbye for talking about boys.
What movie would you bring to watch?
Penelope--hello James McAvoy's eyes!!
Who's the ideal male mascot for The Fort and why?
I'm gonna have to go with James McAvoy again, because he seems nice and when all else fails we could just make him talk to us and listen to the pretty, pretty accent.
Marshmallows, lightly toasted or burned to a crisp?
Awake all night or first one to sleep?
Awake all night. Sleeping is for when you're bored.
If awake all night, practical joke or no?
Practical joke, but nothing permanent or mean. Perhaps hacking their twitter accounts and sending rabid tweets to famous people.
If you could have any YA author visit the fort and tell stories, who would it be and what story would you ask them to tell?
Oh, you know I'm going to pick Neil Gaiman, of course! And this is another case of not caring what he says, just enjoying how he says it!
