Emma asked Katie McGarry:

Your novels are absolutely amazing! I'd like to ask what or who your inspiration is that allows you to have such an emotional connection with your readers? The situations that the characters experience can relate to many young adult readers and can help them in so many ways to believe in themselves.

Katie McGarry Hi Emma,

Thank you for reading my books! I base a lot of my books off of my past experiences and emotions. I want to write books that show no matter how tough the circumstances, there is hope. When I was younger, I was desperate for hope and thought life would never change. Life does change and there is always hope.

Thank you for the question!
