Moriah McStay grew up in Memphis, TN, where she acquired a come-and-go drawl and a lifelong love of cowboy boots and fried pickles. She attended Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. Two graduate degrees and seven jobs later, she finally figured out what she wants to be when she grows up.

EVERYTHING THAT MAKES YOU is her first novel, and she's probably at home right now working on another one.

Just saw this question! And yikes, that's a tough one. When I started writing the book, I definitely liked--and related to--Fiona more. But as I revised and edited, both girls became more real and flushed out. Looking back at the process, I'd say they gave me an equal number of "crying scenes," in which I sobbed for them while writing. And, to be fair, an equal number of scenes in which I wanted to shake them and tell them to get over it already!

It was important to me that neither one was marginalized or "less" than the other. They each had real experiences with real impacts on their lives, and that's something we all can relate to, I think.(less)

Honestly, I love all of them. Trent's so heart-throbby--and his intentions are good--so it's hard not to root for him. But then Marcus is pretty perfect, and David's darling. Jackson has that maddening, pull-you-closer way about him. Even Ryan (who's obviously not in the running for Fiona/Fi's heart) is such a sweetheart, I love him, too.

So I guess that answers the question--no, I didn't like one over the others. They all felt like such individuals to me, and I loved the positive and negatives of all of them!(less)

“If we tried to analyze how every little thing changes us, nobody would get anything done.”
Moriah McStay, Everything That Makes You

“Even though Marcus really believed some miracle would happen, he didn't waste a second." He gave a sad, lopsided smile. "So I learned this from my dying brother. Don't waste it."

"Waste what?" she whispered.

He looked at her for a long time. "Everything that makes you.”

“It's just... You sound like lorde. But like, with maple syrup.”
