Interview with Lauren Kate
Question: What was challenging about writing Rapture?
Lauren Kate: Rapture was the first book in which Luce and Daniel are together. That sounds like bliss after all they'd been through in the first three books, but it was actually really challenging to write. They needed to be solid and strong in the face of the gravest apocalyptic danger-but they're also just beginning this leg of their relationship. Balancing the forward motion of the action with the sweet enclaves of romance was tough but satisfying.
Question: Why do you think we have been drawn to the character of Luce?
Lauren Kate: Luce is open. She lets you enter her as a reader. She is easy to inhabit. She's willing to take risks, make mistakes, and learn. This makes her a great lens through which to see this story, and relatable as well.
Question: The first book in the series, Fallen, is currently being made into a film; how much say have you had in taking Fallen from book to the big screen?
Lauren Kate: I'm consulting on the film, which is a slow but exciting process. We're all eager to see what Disney does with the story and I'm eager to share updates as soon as I'm allowed.
Question: Which book in the Fallen series was your favourite to write?
Lauren Kate: I've loved each one more and more. Currently Rapture is my favourite, but check back with me in a year and I'll hopefully have a new favourite book to tell you about. I hope it stays that way-that I feel as if I'm getting better at this all the time, becoming more like the writer I want to be.
Question: Can you share with us what your daily writing schedule is like?
Lauren Kate: When I'm working on a draft, I write all day every day for several months. It's gruelling but the only way I can make it through a first draft, which is a slog for me. I love to edit and revise, so I don't let myself do it until I'm fully finished with a manuscript. Then I can go back in and do the fun stuff, make the characters soar.
