Richelle Mead has just gotten home from Dreamin' in Dallas, a convention I'll be mentioning a bit in another blog post, and a huge upcoming convention is soon on the horizon again.

You've probably heard about the Romantic Times convention. Richelle attended it last year, and we wrote a few blog posts about the fun times that were had then. This year RT is going to have a special focus about Young Adult literature, with more YA authors than you can count attending. In anticipation for that, the Paperpack Dolls have a feature, interviewing several of the authors. We wrote about that a while back, and how you could send in your questions for all the authors.

Now it's time to present the interview they did with Richelle!

She talks a little bit about the wonders of RT, and also about how she needs cats to write, which I love. ;-) (Yes, I'm a cat person. lol) And I'm thrilled that her favorie romantic couple is Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy!! They're one of (if not THE one) my favorites too.

You have to read the entire interview. There are some really great questions and answers. These are a couple of my favorites; some of what she says about her younger readers:

BloodlinesQ: If you could give one piece of advice to young adults (on anything), what would it be?

A: To value themselves, in all things.

Q: As writers of Young Adult fiction, teens (and some adults for that matter) can get kind of obsessed with characters and the authors that created them. Do you enjoy the fame and attention you have gained from writing or is it more of a nuisance?

A: A nuisance? No way. It’s wonderful and flattering (and even unbelievable) that readers can become so dedicated to the worlds and characters I’ve created. I’m grateful and delighted by their enthusiasm.
