Welcome to Author Deborah Andreasen
Deborah graduated from Brigham Young University – Idaho with her bachelor’s degree in Business Management with a double minor in Finance and Psychology. She is a stay-at-home mom to her one-year-old son, and when she’s not mothering or writing, she is reading, blogging, watching movies, or taking pictures. She and her family love to spend time outdoors.
Though she writes about teenage angst, Deborah considers herself a funny person. Or at least someone who enjoys humor. The Gifted is her first published work, but it won’t be her last.
If you were a superhero what would your name be?
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
What inspired you to want to become a writer?
Can you see yourself in any of your characters?
What was your favorite children’s book?
I didn’t have one as a kid, but I love Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell and David Catrow.
How do you react to a bad review?
I haven’t had one yet, but I imagine I’ll have myself a nice little cry, eat some ice cream, and then get over it. You can’t please everyone, and maybe the review can teach me a thing or two.
If you were a super hero what would your kryptonite be?
Peas. And spinach. Bleck. (Given my previous food answers, you probably think my veins are full of sugar water and chocolate syrup. I really do eat fruits and veggies, and I exercise. Seriously, I do.)
Give us a glimpse into a typical day in your day starting when you wake up till you lie down again.
Well, it’s actually kind of boring. I spend most of my day playing and laughing with my one-year-old. I do a lot of chores, grocery shopping, trips to the library and bank. We play with friends and cousins. We watch PBS and read books. You know, mom stuff. When my husband gets home, it’s pretty much the same except he gets to play with our son and I get a second to breathe. J But it’s a dream come true. Oh, and I do a lot of reading, writing, and blogging. Also a dream come true.
Pyper just wants a normal life. But ever since the day she died, she’s been able to control objects with her mind. What she can’t control is a mother who fears Pyper’s ability and the possibility of it being discovered. Pyper only finds solace in her friend and brother, Baler. When Pyper moves to yet another new school, she meets Kael, who takes an immediate interest in her. He knows her secret, and he needs her help saving the Fae people. The problem is, Pyper doesn’t believe in Faeries. But when her brother is abducted, Pyper doesn’t have much choice. Can she really save a race she doesn’t believe exists? Can she rescue her brother? And can she accept her second chance at life?
