Podcast #22: Celebrating Verse Novels (& Friday Night Lights) with Author Lisa Schroeder
We are thrilled that our annual Verse Novel Week podcast features none-other than one of our very favorite authors, Lisa Schroeder.
Not only do we chat extensively about writing in verse and some of our favorite elements of verse novels, but because Lisa is as big of Friday Night Lights fan as I am (true story: I found out about Lisa's books because she wrote an awesome post about FNL that the entire world sent me), we chat about that show a bit as well. As one does...
Lisa Schroeder is the author of six teen novels (four of which are fully in verse, one that's half verse and another that includes poetry as an important storytelling device) including THE BRIDGE FROM ME TO YOU; I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME and CHASING BROOKLYN; and the Oregon Book Award finalist THE DAY BEFORE.
She's also the author of the middle grade CHARMED LIFE series and the IT'S RAINING CUPCAKES trilogy. Her books have been translated into several languages and have been selected for state reading lists. She is a native Oregonian and lives in Beaverton with her husband and two sons. When she's not writing, you'll probably find Lisa reading, walking the dog, watching her favorite TV shows, or baking yummy treats.
