Jenny Kaczorowski is the author of The Art of Falling:

For seventeen-year-old Bria Hale, image is everything. She’s a militant vegan with purple hair, Doc Martens and a permanent scowl. Kissing captain of the football team Ben Harris? Definitely not part of that image. 

Now with each secret kiss, she’s falling deeper for the boy every girl at Oceanside High is crushing on. Throw in a few forbidden bacon cheeseburgers and she’s facing one major identity crisis.

Ignoring Ben should be easy, but when a flashy display of artistic spirit lands her in close quarters after hours with the boy she’s too cool to like, she can’t keep pretending those kisses meant nothing. With her reputation and her heart on a collision course, Bria must either be true to herself or to the persona she’s spent all of high school creating.

Raised in Avon, Ohio, the duct tape capital of the world, Jenny began her writing career as a featured columnist for her hometown newspaper. After earning a degree in photojournalism from Kent State University, she vowed to never spend another winter in Ohio and moved to Los Angeles, where there is far too much sunshine.

About Jenny: 

Apart from writing, Jenny is still an avid photographer, loves music despite no discernible musical talent, and reads the dictionary for fun. She lives near Los Angeles with her husband, son and daughter. The four of them are always looking for their next adventure.

Amid working as a grant writer for Sound Art, a non-profit that teaches music in inner-city neighborhoods, and raising two kids, Jenny decided to do something with all the snippets of stories she wrote during microeconomics and began writing for young adults. She likes her heroines smart and quirky, her heroes nice, and her kisses sweet. Her debut, THE ART OF FALLING, is published with Bloomsbury Spark.

1. Heartbreak can come in many forms: a messy breakup, a disappointing setback, death of a loved one, or a broken friendship. Has writing ever had a hand in helping you deal with a wounded heart?

A very dear friend of mine died unexpectedly at age 25. At the time, I was part way through my first serious manuscript. I took a lot of my heartache and focused it on my writing, creating a story arc that helped me find closure.

2. Top 5 songs about heartbreak? 5 films?

Oh, heartbreak songs are my favorite! Only five? Let’s see...
The Leaving Song Part II by AFI
Dear Tragedy by Bayside
Til I Hear It From You by Gin Blossoms
Somebody That I Used to Know by Gotye
Gold and Silver by Stavesacre

Films...none of these are romance heartbreak, really, but heartbreaking nonetheless...
Dead Poets Society
American History X
The Iron Giant
Life Is Beautiful

Brenda Hiatt is the author of Starstruck:

The middle of nowhere just got a lot more interesting!
Nerdy, orphaned astronomy geek Marsha, M to her few friends, dreams of escaping tiny Jewel, Indiana and becoming “somebody”—a distant dream until hot new quarterback Rigel inexplicably befriends her. As Rigel turns his back on fawning cheerleaders to spend time with M, strange things happen: her acne clears up, her terrible eyesight improves, and when they touch, sparks fly—literally! When M digs for a reason, she discovers deep secrets that will change her humdrum life forever and expose her to perils she never dreamed of.
Brenda Hiatt is the author of nearly twenty novels (so far), including traditional Regency romance, time travel romance, historical romance, and humorous mystery. She is as excited about her new STARSTRUCK series as she's ever been about any of her books.

For the past dozen years, Brenda has collected data on writers' earnings, which she shares at her website, http://brendahiatt.com.

1. Heartbreak can come in many forms: a messy breakup, a disappointing setback, death of a loved one, or a broken friendship. Has writing ever had a hand in helping you deal with a wounded heart?    

Yes, back before I ever considered becoming a writer, I remember journaling about a bad breakup that left me desperately hurting. It did help. And now that I’ve remembered that, I wish I still had that journal, since I could probably use some of that the next time I’m writing heartbreak for my characters!
