Chasing the Book Interview Series: Hilary Graham

Congratulations to Hilary Graham on the book birthday of her debut YA novel, Reunited.  You can celebrate by checking out the book trailer.  Welcome Hilary!

First and most importantly, tell us about you book.

1 Concert. 2,000 Miles. 3 Ex-Best Friends.

Alice, Summer, and Tiernan are ex-best friends. Back in middle school, the three girls were inseparable. They were also the number one fans of the rock band Level3. But when the band broke up, so did their friendship. Summer ran with the popular crowd, Tiernan was a rebellious wild-child, and Alice spent high school with her nose buried in books. Now, just as the girls are about to graduate, Level3 announces a one-time-only reunion show. Even though the concert’s 2000 miles away, Alice buys three tickets on impulse. And as it turns out, Summer and Tiernan have their own reasons for wanting to get out of town. But on the long drive cross-country, the girls hit more than a few bumps in the road. Will their friendship get an encore or is the show really over?

That sounds like so much fun.  I love roadtrip novels.  Now, on to the bounty hunting questions.  You’ve skipped bail, and a bounty hunter is looking for you.  What three things do you bring with you?

My husband, my son, and my computer so I can write (and obsessively check my email).

Bringing backup sounds like a great plan.  So where does the bounty hunter find you?
Oh, he can’t find my yacht in the Caribbean.

It’s also illegal for him to follow you out of the country, so good call.  Now you’re the bounty hunter.  When three things do you bring with you
while tracking your skip?
I’m going Macgyver style. All I need is a piece of chewing gum, a pen cap, and an empty whipped cream can.

I hope you ate the whipped cream first.  Now, you’ve found your skip, right where you thought they would be.
Describe your location and approach.
I know he’s holed up in cave somewhere in the Smokey Mountains. So under the cover of darkness, I climb the steep path and surprise him, grabbing by the shirt-collar and saying, “It’s over, pal. Time for you to take a hike.”

You’ve just caught a skip, and you’re surprised to find them
attractive.  What three things make them irresistible to you?
His rugged manliness, his sharp wit, and the sound of his voice saying my name.

After writing this bounty hunter fantasy, I am considering switching careers. 😉

Aww, you don’t have to switch, as long as you’ve got that computer with you!
