Patty Blount grew up quiet and a bit invisible in Queens, NY, but found her voice in books. Today, she writes smart and strong characters willing to fight for what’s right. She’s the award-winning author of edgy, realistic, gut-wrenching contemporary and young adult romance. Still a bit introverted, she gets lost often, eats way too much chocolate, and tends to develop mad, passionate crushes on fictional characters. Let’s be real; Patty’s not nearly as cool as her characters, but she is a solid supporter of women’s rights and loves delivering school presentations.

Patty is best known for her internet issues novels, including SOME BOYS, a 2015 CLMP Firecracker winner and SEND, a 2012 Junior Library Guild Fall Pick. Visit her website at patt

Hi, Jerica,

I love to write, too! The best advice I can give you is to read everything you can get your hands on. That always inspires me. I frequently come up with my ideas after reading something and saying to myself, "Wouldn't it have been cool if..." and then writing that IF part myself. Write the stories that scare you, write the stories you want to read. Join a writing group, too. It's an essential skill for authors to know how to accept critique feedback. (less)

I read Jeannie Moon's latest while in a hotel room on a business trip. I ended up staying up way past bedtime because I was hooked from the first page and HAD to finish it in one sitting.

So many feels. Jordan and Nick are a great couple -- the spark
