Interview; Meg Rosoff

WHY IS HOW I LIVE NOW WRITTEN IN THE STYLE IT IS? AND MEG ROSOFF'S THOUGHTS ON THE CAST OF THE UPCOMING FILM. OH AND ALSO SPIDERS.

Meg Rosoff is the amazing author of How I live Now, Just In Case, What I Was, The Bride's Farewell and There Is No Dog and was kind enough to answer some of our questions.


How I Live Now is different to a lot of books out there. One big difference is the punctuation in it, what made you decide to do that? 
I stole it from A. A. Milne -- Winnie the Pooh.  Also didn't want to have too much punctuation because it would slow down the rush of thoughts out of Daisy's head.

How do you feel about the fact that How I Live Now is being turned into a film?
I just hope it turns out to be a good film.  It's a bit nerve-wracking, but very exciting.  The director and cast are all brilliant.

Are you happy with the cast?
Love them.  Saoirse Ronan is a fantastic actor (nominated for an academy award at age 11!), as are George MacKay and the rest of the cast.  Literally thousands of kids auditioned for the film, so it was an incredibly difficult decision.
You can see Saoirse in Atonement or Hanna, and George MacKay was great in The Best of Men.


Is there a chance of Just In Case being turned into a film? 
There's always a chance, but we haven't sold the film rights.  The Bride's Farewell is being made into a film in Canada, though.

How did to feel while writing Fate's parts in Just In Case?
I liked being the voice of....God.  I liked it so much, I went on to write a whole other book about God being a 19-year-old boy called There is No Dog.

Are any of your characters based on real people?  
 Bits of people show up in my books, but no one is ever an actual person that i know or have met.  A lot of my main characters have big chunks of me in them, but that's true of most writers.

Do you have any writing rituals that you do before you start to write? 
Nope.

RANDOM QUESTION
Favourite smell??  
The sea.

Thoughts on spiders?
As long as they eat mosquitos, I'm in favour of them.
