Author Uncovered: Kristina Springer (Author Interviews)

Hey guys! Today, I have Kristina Springer with me! She's the author of the ever-so-wonderful: The Espressologist! It's cute, quirky, and completely original! Here's my Q&A with Kristina. Hope ya like it!

Her book:

Did you always want to become an author?
Yes and no-- I always wanted to be a writer and teach writing but I never thought I'd write fiction. Let alone a whole book. Let alone the seven books I've written since I started writing. I did a lot of technical writing and nonfiction writing after college and then 4 years ago I gave YA fiction writing a try and it just clicked. I love it!

Who or what was your inspiration for The Espressologist?
Coffee and People. And love! <3

How does it feel like, knowing your books are going to be on those bookshelves in a bookstore?
OMG, I'm SO excited!! I can't wait for that first time to walk in a store and see my book!

Did you base any of your characters on real people?
Totally! :-) None of my main characters were based on anyone but as I was writing Espressology night scenes in the book I needed a lot of people to come in and get matched so I was using people that were really walking into the coffee shop that I was sitting in.

The Espressologist sounds completely original. How did you come up with that idea?
Like my main character Jane, I've spent a ton of time in coffeeshops (though not as a barista, just a coffee freak) and one day I realized I could figure out what people were going to order. I thought, hey I should write this up and call it Espressology. Then I thought, no, I'll write a fiction book with a barista who is an Espressologist and have her hook people up.

How are you and Jane alike? How are you different?
OMG, well far starters we share the same favorite drink. :-) And we were both bad with guys at that age. I had some socially awkward situations like Jane too. And cleaning turkeys also freak me out like her. But other than that, Jane is way cooler and cuter and funnier than I ever was at 17.

What is your favorite type of drink?
Large nonfat iced mocha with no whip

Do you have any upcoming books apart from The Espressologist?
Yes! My Fake Boyfriend is Better Than Yours comes out in the fall of 2010.

Anything else you want to add?
Thanks so much for having me Reggie! Fun questions!

Thank you Kristina! I can't wait for her next book in 2010!

Peace, Love, Coffee,
my signature
