Interview with Emily Mah Tippetts, author of Someone Else’s Fairytale

As you may know, Emily’s Someone Else’s Fairytale was the first and only chicklit I have read (You can find my review here). And, she writes fantasy and science fiction besides chicklit! I have no idea what was going on in my mind, LOL. But, I seem to have liked the book, so I was quite interested in finding out more about this wonderful and multi-talented writer. Here’s a tidbit I learned from talking to her. She knows Orson Scott Card. Yes, personally! So, lets dive in to find out more!

So, I’m going to tell you whether I liked the story, and whether the book met the expectations I set for every book I read.

The premise of the story is quite simple. Boy meets girl. They become friends. They finally fall in love and live happily ever after. Even with this rather generic premise, I liked the story due to two reasons. One, there is a major twist to this basic premise. And two, the author has done a terrific job at fleshing out the characters.
