View Full Version : Ask questions: Lisa Clark - author of "Think Pink"

Hey guys! Okay after getting permission from the bigwigs here I am now posting this thread.

On Feb 1, I am hosting the author Lisa Clark on my blog. She is another author with my agency and a really sweet person. She writes non-fiction books for teen girls, dealing with everyday issues along with greater concepts like self-esteem. She was hoping she could do some sort of question and answer thingy on my blog, so what I thought was I would post here, you guys could ask questions of her, I could email them along to her and then on Feb 1 you can visit my blog to see the answers. I figure I'll collect questions till Friday so that she can have some time to answer them.

Sorry if I am not being clear, this is my first time doing something like this, and I just want to be a good host for her.

Here's some more info on her, and please feel free to visit her website, http://www.pink-world.co.uk, as well:

"Lisa Clark is author-girl of Think Pink (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Think-Pink-Lisa-Clark/dp/0007234015/sr=1-1/qid=1167828719/ref=sr_1_1/202-1480948-5676634?ie=UTF8&s=books), a brand new series of feel-good, go-for-it guides for teen girls, Iím an agony aunt for the fabulous Mizz magazine and Iím a freelance writer type tooÖ Iím also a dreamer, a wannabe 60ís icon, a ray of sunshine, a book-reader, a lover of beautifully packaged cosmetics, chocolate and most importantly, a girl who thinks seeing the world through pink-tinted shades is a more than do-able way to live lifeÖ

Yeah, but what exactly does she do?
You mean apart from drooling over stupidly expensive shoes and handbags? Well, Lisa is a:

What sort of questions are you looking for? Questions on writing, or questions on teen angst? Who is your audience for this interview? Readers, or other writers?

When my 13YO daughter tells me about how none of the cool people at school even know she exists, what do I say?

Good question Cat Scratch. I think a combination of both would be great. I posted here cause I thought fellow writers might have some questions about her process etc, but I bet she wouldn't be adverse to questions about teens as well. I'll just compile the list and she'll answer as she sees fit I guess!
