Sharon M. Draper has been busy of late, with her new Sassy series for tween girls from Scholastic, as well as the release of Just Another Hero (Atheneum), the final book in her Jericho trilogy. The former teacher now writes fulltime, and does school visits and appearances. PW caught up with the author to talk about her writing life.
This is my older son’s first year in college. He wanted to do a creative writing program. We looked at many different colleges, and he really loved Boston. We were not sure that we wanted to be halfway across the country, and he really wasn’t sure that he wanted that either. We’re a very close family. So we relocated here in June and couldn’t be happier. Robert B. Parker is really the writer who got me into the mystery genre, and so everything I knew about Boston I learned from Spenser and the novels of Boston. Boston is a wonderful place for the culture that it offers, for the atmosphere, the history. My wife, who is from New York, feels very much at home.
