Sarah Dessen Q&A!

Today we are lucky enough to have a Q&A with Sarah Dessen. She's super nice and though she won't admit it, gave awesome answers.

-Who pwns everything?
Oprah. Or maybe Ben Lee. He's an Australian singer and I love him. Or Taylor Kitsch from Friday Night Lights.

-If someone suddenly threw a wad of twenty thousand dollars at you, what would you do?
I'd have to give some to charity because I would feel guilty otherwise. I would save some maybe five thousand because my father taught me to save. I'd shop and have a nice dinner. If it belonged to someone though, I'd give it back since I'm a strong believer in karma.

-If 'they' decided to make a movie of your life, which actress would you want to play you?
I'm the biggest celebrity freak and I've completely blanked out. Kristen Bell because I love Veronica Mars or Mandy Moore because I just love her.

-What's the most random question you can think of? Answer it.
What's my favorite snack food?

-Can you do the Time Warp again?
I cannot though I know what it is. Admittedly I've never been to the Rocky Horror Picture Show and am not even sure I've seen the whole movie.

-When writing some authors plan every detail and others just dive into the book, so are you an outliner or a diver (or a mix)?
I have a general idea and a skeleton before I start. If I outlined everything, I would have to stick with it because I'm a control freak.

-Why hasn't Jason grown up? When will he? (Referring to the Jason in both The Truth About Forever and Along for the Ride)
I wanted to believe that he had changed. Though the book is about people changing, so maybe he just can't change. He represented Auden before she changed, so he couldn't change in Along for the Ride. Maybe he'll change in college.
