Interview with Paige Harbison (Here Lies Bridget Blog Tour)

Today we have Paige Harboison here for an interview! This author interview is part of The Teen Book Scene's blog tour for Here Lies Bridget. You can find ou tmore about the tour here. Make sure to visit all the other stops of the blog tour if you'd like to know more about Here Lies Bridget!

How has having a mother who is also an author influenced you and helped you as a writer?
She can read through what I write or tell me that my ideas are stupid or not. Haha.

What inspired you to write this novel? Why did you decide to write about Bridget, who is (at least at first glance) a mean and not very likeable character?
Because flaws, to me, are way more interesting than perfection. I liked the idea of writing from almost the antagonist’s perspective.

Can you tell us a bit about the writing process? Do you have any weird writing habits?
I am more easily distracted while writing than when I do annnnything else. I get everything else done.
If you could pair the main character, Bridget, up with any character from any other book, who would it be and why?
I’d like her to just hang around with Hermione Granger. She’d feel sooo stupid so fast. Hermione would have no patience
I've heard Here Lies Bridget is going to be turned into a movie - can you tell us anything about that?
Can’t say too much, but hopefully it happens!

Make sure to check out all the other stops of the blog tour, and keep your eye out for Here Lies Bridget, which has already been released this January.

Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
(Amazon / Goodreads)

Bridget Duke is the uncontested ruler of her school. The meanest girl with the biggest secret insecurities. And when new girl Anna Judge arrives, things start to fall apart for Bridget: friends don't worship as attentively, teachers don't fall for her wide-eyed "who me?" look, expulsion looms ahead and the one boy she's always loved—Liam Ward—can barely even look at her anymore.
When a desperate Bridget drives too fast and crashes her car, she ends up in limbo, facing everyone she's wronged and walking a few uncomfortable miles in their shoes. Now she has only one chance to make a last impression. Though she might end up dead, she has one last shot at redemption and the chance to right the wrongs she's inflicted on the people who mean the most to her.
And Bridget's about to learn that, sometimes, saying you're sorry just isn't enough….
