I was so happy to get an interview with Sarah Webb. She writes amazing books and if you haven't read any of them then go! You HAVE to read them!
Sarah writes books for teens and here I quiz her about her series called ''The Ask Amy Green Series''.
They are about a girl....called Amy....her Aunt ( who is actually really cool! ;) ) Called Clover....and...that's all I'm going to tell you! ;)
Lol If you want to find out more then you'll have to read the books won't you!
Haha I can guarantee you won't be let down!
Now..Onto the questions!
Welcome to EbonyBlackLines. Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Sarah Webb. I'm an Irish writer and I live in Dublin with my family.
I write the Ask Amy Green series for girls. My websites are: www.askamygreen.com or www.sarahwebb.ie.
Did you always love writing and reading?
Yes! I LOVE reading. And reading brought me to writing.
What inspired you to become a writer?
Books and reading. After reading brilliant books like Are You There, God, It's Me, Margaret? and Ballet Shoes and The Secret Garden I wanted to create my own stories.
What inspired you to write the Ask Amy Green Series?
My teenage self and also a lovely girl called Kate who I met on a school visit one day. She read some early chapters and made me finish the first book. I owe her a lot!
Who is you favourite character from that series?
Clover I think. And also Amy. Clover is so much fun to write, but I love Amy.

Which character out of all of your books do you think you are most alike?
Sylvie probably! And also Amy. I'm probably a mixture of the two. Sylvie is a writer, like me, with young children. Amy is very like me when I was 13.
Where do you usually write your books and why?
In my bedroom as there is no internet up there!
How often do you write and how much?
I write almost every day, depending on the week. I also do some other work, reviewing and programming a book festival - I like to be busy!
Can you share any tips or advice for our budding writers?
Read! Write! Never Give Up!
Lots of readers love writing and aspire to be writers one day, could you suggest a title or first line that they could turn into a story?
I think the best books or stories are drawn very strongly from your own feelings and your own experiences. And from a problem that your character is facing. So I would suggest:
One day I woke up and everything had changed . . .
Quick Fire Questions..
Reading or Writing? Both! Kit Or Seth? Seth (but I also love Kit!)
Indoors Or Outdoors? Outdoors, always. Sea, beaches, snow fields . . .
Paperback Or Hardback? Paperback - cheaper and easier to carry around.
Summer Or Winter? Summer for doing things outside; Winter for reading and watching movies.
Best, Sarah X
I Hope You Enjoyed The Interview!
