The Poetics Project: Describe your novel in ten words or less.
Sandy Hall: A girl meets boy story told from everyone else’s perspective.
TPP: What inspired you to write A Little Something Different?
SH: I was inspired by the Swoon Reads website. I’d been working on a completely different book, that had no romance in it. Then I saw an article about Swoon and I decided to try my hand at writing teen romance.
TPP: What was the most difficult aspect of writing your novel?
SH: Editing! Without a doubt. The writing comes easy, it’s the re-writing and editing that’s tough for me.
