Things to Know About Featured Author Coe Booth

The lovely Coe Booth, author of Kendra, has shared a few things about herself with us:

Favorite drink while you write: French vanilla coffee

Favorite bookstores: Strand bookstore

Favorite library: NYPL Bronx Library Center

Inspiration: Eavesdropping on people, especially on trains. Also, people-watching around the city.

Dream book tour: Traveling around the country in a rock-star-type tour bus!

Cure for writer's block: Loud music, Häagen-Dazs Caramel Cone ice cream!

Favorite outfit: Broken-in jeans and pretty tops.

Stilettos or Uggs? Ugh. Neither. I'm a flip-flops kind of girl!

Next up: The sequel to Tyrell (fall 2010)

We can't wait for more Coe books! Keep drinking that French Vanilla Coffee, Coe! Find out more about her on readergirlz.com.

The tour bus does sound great! I'm happy there is a sequel to Tyrell. Loved the book!
