20 Questions with author Andrea Lochen: Questions 5 & 6

Local author Andrea Lochen will be doing a reading and Q&A session about her new novel The Repeat Year here at the West Allis Public Library on Tuesday, August 13th at 7 PM in the Constitution Room.  In preparation for her visit, Andrea did a little interview with me in order for you dear patrons to get to know her a bit. I will be posting two of her responses each weekday until her visit on the 13th.  

Q 5: Did you write a lot as a kid?  If so, what was one of your crazier ideas for a story?

I’ve been writing since I was eight years old, and I loved mysteries and scary stories, so I had a lot of crazy ideas.  One of my favorite stories I wrote is about a girl tracking down and saving the Easter bunny after he is “rabbit-napped.”

Q 6: Have you ever not been able to finish reading a book?  If so, what was it?  

By nature, I’m not a novel-quitter, because I like to give books a fair chance, but there are so many amazing ones out there, that if I’m really not enjoying a book, I’ll stop midway.  I can’t think of any books I’ve given up on recently though.  

We have several copies of Andrea's book here at the library if you would like to prep yourself with questions but get one soon!  They are always flying off the shelves!  Signed copies of the novel will be available for purchase at the reading.  Join us next week for more questions for Andrea!
