Interview with Melissa Walker

Melissa Walker is the author of the wonderful Violet series: Violet on the Runway, Violet by Design, and Violet in Private and also Lovestuck Summer. She is super sweetheart and friendly. She has quite the online presence with her blog, readergirlz, and I Heart Daily. She also just got married. So Congrats Melissa!
1. Did you use Violet’s problems with her weight in the books, by using realistic situation that models and teens are experiencing?
Yes, I felt like I couldn't write about the fashion world without dealing with this issue somehow. It's rampant.
2. Quinn from Lovesturk Summer had a great love of music. What is some music that you love?
I love a LOT of music. Lately in heavy rotation are: Taylor Swift, Pinback, Band of Horses, Loretta Lynn and Journey.
3. Lovestruck Summer is a beach read. What do you consider a great beach read?
Something light and funny and heartwarming to make you smile as you lounge...

4. You have such a great online presence as a Readergirlz Diva and Co-founder of I Heart Daily. How do you balance it with writing?
I love blogging and being a part of I Heart Daily and readergirlz... I think it just enhances my book writing. Some days I do a little too much Internet surfing, but who doesn't? :)
5. What are some of your favorite Young Adult novels?
Too many to name! So I'll name the one I just finished: LOOKS by Madeleine George. It's about invisibility and friendship and pain and human quirks and I adored it.

6. If you could visit any era, which one would you like to visit the most? Why?
Probably the 1930s. I'd like to meet my grandmother back then.

7. Is there anything that you would like to add?
Just thanks for having me, Sarah! It's been a pleasure!


  1. Great interview! I keep up with Melissa's blog and she seems like she would be so much fun to hang out with! I adored Lovestruck Summer - I need to go read the rest of her books soon.
