BookWorm 221 asked Katie McGarry:

Hi Katie! Your books always touch on important and serious subjects and I was wondering what type of research you do when your about to start writing a book? And If you take any experiences (yours or others) into the writing process?. Thank You!

Katie McGarry Hi BookWorm 221,

I do a ton of research for my books.

I read a lot about the subject I am writing--books, articles, and such. I'll also interview people who have knowledge in the field that I am studying. I will also talk with people who have personally gone through whatever it is I am writing about.

I also do dip into my own personal experiences when writing.

Thank you for the question!

Katie
