Kate76 asked Katie McGarry:

Hi Katie, I'm Caterina, I'm one of your italian book-fans. Here my questions for you: -) why the choice of writing about teenagers? Is there something of your personal teenager life in your books? Actually I must confess I found a lot of similar experience of my own teenagers years and I guess this is why I think your books are really fantastic! Thank you again, I hope to hear from you soon :-) Caterina

Katie McGarry Hi Caterina,

I experienced some tough circumstances when I was a teen and I found myself wanting books that reflected some of what I went through. I write YA because I want to write the books that show tough, raw circumstances yet shows that there is always hope.

Thank you,
