What is more important than supporting dazzling new talent? Introducing Harper May, the daughter of acclaimed novelist and bon vivant Amy Shearn. Harper’s novel, The Lonly Princess is a thrilling edition to the literary scene. From the gorgeous cover (The princess is clearly not happy!) to the sublime writing inside, Harper shows she is a talent to be reckoned with. I can't wait to see what she will do, next! Thank you so much, Harper, for being so generous and so much fun to interview!

When did you start writing?

I started during kindergarten.

What is your writing day like? Do you have to have cookies before you write?

Well, I come home from work (aka school) and write.

P.S. I do have cookies!

The Lonly Princess is a masterwork, so I wanted to know how you came up with the idea?

To be honest, I don’t really know!

 The cover is gorgeous! How did you come up with the design?

I thought about how she would feel.

What's next for you?

Well, The Lonly Princess is still sort of being worked on,  but I’ll send you a new copy soon!

P.S. Lately I wrote a comic book called The Giant Bird.
