Interview with Elizabeth Miles, Author of Fury
It was a confluence of creative inspirations -- a combination of interest in mythology and fables, horror movies, and contemporary YA -- with a little bit of personal revenge fantasy thrown in for good measure. :)
3) What was your favorite moment in Fury?
Without wanting to give too much away, I love the New Year's Eve scene, when Em and JD go to Boston together.
4) What was your initial reaction to seeing the book really coming together (ie.getting a cover and being added to Goodreads, etc.)?
Shock, glee, terror, you name it. My bff Lauren Oliver often asks "Aren't you excited??" because my reactions are sometimes understated. It's not for lack of excitement -- sometimes it just takes me a few extra minutes to process such overwhelming news!
5) As an author, name 3 things you cannot live without.
1) Quiet alone time
