Rick Yancey Q&A!

Hey YAthenaeum readers, sorry for the lack of week-in reviews these past couple of weeks. The majority of our team consists of high school seniors and we're neck deep in college applications at the moment. We'll return to our regularly scheduled posts once we meet all our deadlines. In the meantime, please enjoy this Q&A with YA author, Rick Yancey.

A few weeks ago, we got a chance to sit and talk with Rick Yancey, author of The Monstrumologist. Here were his answers to our ever so random questions.

Who pwns everything?

Russell Crowe


If someone suddenly threw a wad of twenty thousand dollars at you, how would you respond?
Give it to the Jekyll Island Turtle Foundation.



If 'they' decided to make a movie of your life, which actor would you want to play you?
Who's the hottest actor out there? Keanu Reeves



What's the most random question you can think of? Answer it.

What is my favorite painting of all time?

I can't choose between Starry Night and The Scream.


Can you do the Time Warp again?
Well, like now?
(He then proceeded to dance with us)



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 used to outline, but then I'd get to 100 pages and throw it all out. So I don't do detailed outlines, but I know the direction I'm going in.
