Writers Revealed: Lara Zielin

Hello My Lovely Followers!

If you don't know what Writers Revealed is, look at this post.

Lara Zielin has been so kind to let me interview her. I want you to comment on this post after you've read it, and ask an odd question that you've always wanted answered. The oddest one will win and I'll ask Lara it in my interview! Here is a bit about Lara and her book, Donut Days, that I've reviewed.

Lara Zielin lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan, with her husband, dog and cat. DONUT DAYS is her first novel, though she's hard at work on her second book, PROMGATE, slated for release in early 2011.

This is the description of Donut Days:

Emma has a lot going on. Her best friend’s not speaking to her, a boy she’s known all her life is suddenly smokin’ hot and in love with her, and oh yes, her evangelical minister parents may lose their church, especially if her mother keeps giving sermons saying Adam was a hermaphrodite.

But this weekend Emma’s only focused on Crispy Dream, a hot new donut franchise opening in town, where Harley bikers and Frodo wannabes camp out waiting to be the first ones served. Writing the best feature story on the camp for the local paper might just win Emma a scholarship to attend a non- Christian college. But soon enough Emma finds the donut camp isn’t quite the perfect escape from all her troubles at Living Word Redeemer.

So now please comment in this post asking really odd (but appropriate) questions about her book or the writing process or what have you! You get a cookie if you do. Oh, you think I am JOKING!

Emma Out!
