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, SEND, a 2012 Junior Library Guild Fall Pick and TMI, a 2014 Watty winner, and her #MeToo novels, including SOME BOYS, a 2015 C

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)

Things Young Adults Need to Know

Hi! I hear so many young adults complain that school didn’t do a good enough job preparing you for real life. You were taught things like geometry, trigonometry and calculus but you can’t balance a checkbook or file your taxes or understand health insurance.

You do have health insurance, right?

If you’re over the age of 26, you are no longer covered under your parents’ insurance. And, you probably d

Excellent Debut!

I'm blown away.

OK, I admit I had some preconceived notions about this novel -- demon king plus angel? Classic good vs. evil story. I expected this to read like an episode of Supernatural, my favorite show.
