I wrote this piece for the blog Burning Impossibly Bright because the person who usually writes this blog, Ambur Hostyn, is Canadian and I thought her Canadian audience might relate. Also, anyone who’s ever lived in LA and not fallen in love with it will know what I’m talking about.
Having said that, there were many good things about LA and I definitely learned to appreciate it in the ten years I lived there. In fact, in just a few weeks, on June 20th, I’ll be heading there for ALA annual conference and I’ll be doing a reading at the main branch of the LA library for LA Teen Reads Night on June 28th. I can’t wait to see all my friends and visit my old haunts and hang out in the place which inspired TRAFFICKED.
