An Interview with Mary Casanova and your chance to win!

Today Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile is pleased to welcome Mary Casanova! Mary's work spans from YA to Children's picture books. In other words, this is one talented lady.

Today she is here to promote her newest book, Frozen. I wrote a review of this book yesterday and I can honestly tell you that it is a gorgeously written historical fiction novel. Well worth the add to your TBR!

I'll let Mary have the floor now, and share her interview answers. Don't forget to check out the giveaway too!

1) Hello Mary, and welcome! Let's start with something fun. If you had to choose just one color to describe yourself, what would it be and why?

I love blue of any and all shades. Blue as the lakes, rivers, ocean. Blue as the sky at dawn, midday, and deep evening. Blue as my father's and mother's and grandparents' eyes. It is the color of vast tranquil spaces and reflection.

2) What is your favorite part of being an author in general? 

I've wanted to making writing my work since I was 16. That's when I fell in love with the craft, the art of using words to create pictures in a reader's mind. Many years later, I'm still doing what I love . . . and I'm still learning the craft. 

3) Is there a book from your childhood that you still love even now? 

I still adore Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. My hands-down favorite book for young readers. It's perfect! 

4) Let's pretend that Frozen is being made into a movie. What is the tagline on the movie poster?   

Her mother was found frozen in the snow and Sadie Rose hasn't spoken a word for 11 years . . . until now. 

5) Finally, and thank you for answering my questions, what would you like to say to your readers as a parting message? 

I grew up in a family of ten kids and writing has been my way of having a voice. Maybe that's why Frozen is a story I had to write--to give voice to the voiceless--and to explore the story behind the prostitute found frozen in the snow (whose body was stood up as a joke at the start of a town meeting in the early 1900s in northern Minnesota.)
