After reading the interview, you can enter for a chance to win a copy of her new book, Low Red Moon.
Let's start simple - pen or pencil? Computer or paper?
Pen, for marking up printed-out drafts. And hands down, computer! I love the idea of writing on paper, but the computer makes doing everything much easier, at least for me.
I love the songs on your Low Red Moon playlist, how did you pick the songs?
Thank you so much! Some of them got taken down, which made me sad, especially because one of them gave me the book's title! (Low Red Moon by Belly) As for the songs themselves, some of them came to me when I was writing or revising, and others actually came from a really awesome cd my editor made for me when she sent me her editorial letter, which I thought was very, very cool!
What comes first for you when writing, the title or the story?
I got the idea for the story and came up with the original title, Red, at the same time.
Have you always loved books? As a writer, do you find it difficult to read while you write?
I am a true bibliophile--I never go anywhere without a book. Or two! I do find it difficult to read YA when I'm writing, though, which is sad because I love YA! Luckily, there's other good books out there :-)
You find yourself finishing the last book you will ever write - what would the last sentence be?"
Thank you so much Ivy!!

A tale of heart-stopping love, death, amnesia . . . and dangerous creatures
The only thing Avery Hood can remember about the night her parents died is that she saw silver—deadly silver, moving inhumanly fast. As much as she wants to remember who killed them, she can't, and there's nothing left to do but try to piece her life back together. Then Avery meets the new boy in school—Ben, mysterious and beautiful, with whom she feels a connection like nothing she's ever experienced. When Ben reveals he's a werewolf, Avery still trusts him—at first. Then she sees that sometimes his eyes flash inhuman silver. And she learns that she's not the only one who can't remember the night her parents died.Part murder mystery, part grief narrative, and part heart-stopping, headlong romance, Low Red Moon is a must-read for teen paranormal fans. As breathless as Twilight and as spooky as Shiver, this is a book to be devoured in one sitting—by an acclaimed YA author making her paranormal debut under the pseudonym Ivy Devlin.
