If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
Oh, baby, the past! But I don’t know if I’d be as brave as Gabi and Lia going back to medieval times–I think the farthest I’d risk would be 19th century.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Dark chocolate

Night owl, or early bird?
I’m a middle of the day person. 🙂

One food you would never eat?

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
Action, romance, Italy…what’s not to like?

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
WATERFALL will be followed by CASCADE this summer, and TORRENT this fall. So I’m in various editing stages of CASCADE and TORRENT. Next up is a trilogy based on a group of well-to-do young people on the Grand Tour of Europe, and after that, I dearly hope to return to this teen audience with another series I’m concepting now.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Italy. I love the history, the landscape, the people, the food–it’s totally captured us. When the kids are grown, my hubby and I will seriously spend some years living/traveling there.

What is your favorite Quote?
“Life is short, but wide.” -Anonymous

How did you know you should become an author?
It wasn’t until I had five books published that I could even bring myself to call myself a writer/author. Sometime after that, I got used to the idea and started to trust that I really was doing what I was supposed to be doing.

Favorite Food?
Italian. All of it. (See question above.) 🙂

How do you react to a bad review?
I shake it off and move on. It gets easier, the older I get (and the more books I publish).

Sneak Peak:

Lisa Tawn Bergren’s new YA series, River of Time, is romantic, historical fiction in which the plucky heroine doesn’t have to fear a vampire’s bite but must still fight for her life.

In Waterfall, American teenager Gabi Betarrini accidentally finds herself in sixteenth-century Italy . . . Knights. Swords. Horses. Armor. And Italian hotties. Most American teens want an Italian vacation, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. Stuck on yet another hot, dusty dig, they are bored out of their minds… until they place their hands atop handprints in an ancient tomb and find themselves catapulted into the sixteenth-century—and in the middle of a fierce battle between knights bent on killing one another.
