You have to start somewhere

Heather and I just had our first experience of teaching together, and we had a great time. We taught a workshop on character in fiction, and we also talked with different groups about writing something together and about writing for teens. The first question we get asked when we talk about writing together is always, "Did you have a lot of fights?" We kind of wish we could say "yes," and have some great story about some huge battle we had while working on the book, but the truth is we really didn't. I don't know exactly how interested people are in the way the book got written, but if they are, I hope our readers will ask some questions. We're ready to answer.
