I recently had the opportunity to chat with freelance writer and young adult author Kat Rosenfield. When she isn’t at work on her YA writing, you can find her contributing to both MTV’s Hollywood Crush Blog (cool, right?) and Barne’s and Noble’s Sparklife.

A single voice singing its aria in a corner of the crowded world. ”
