“I loved Brittney’s questions—a mix of the serious and the fun. I have to say, the fun questions were the ones that made me dig a little deeper and learn more about myself. How cool is that?

jessica-lee-anderson“Author Turf is a top-notch site that generously showcases such unique voices and stories. If you’re in need of some solidarity and hope, this is the place to visit!”-Jessica Lee Anderson, award-winning author of Trudy 

“My interview with Brittney was enjoyable and cool. So often in interviews I’m asked the same questions over and over and it gets a bit boring. Author Turf asked questions that related to my work and the ways my life is woven into and out of the process of making that work; in other words, smart, interesting questions. It’s great to have young, aspiring writers connect with authors of various degrees of experience and success—there is a link, a connecting bond that flows from older writers talking to younger writers, and vice-versa. I wish Author Turf, Brittney, and all involved in the enterprise nothing but the best of luck!”-Terry Trueman, author of the Michael L. Printz Honor Book Stuck in Neutral
