NON Interviews Jonathan Friesen

The newest author interview is posted on the Number One Novels blog. This week: Jonathan Friesen, an YA author with a humorous story of how he got published:

I attended a writer’s conference in California. It was my first, and for whatever reason I arrived a day early. Around dinnertime, I wandered around the grounds searching for food. I heard the distant tinkling of silverware, and unaware that I was a day early, walked into a room filled with people I assumed were fellow conferees. Turns out they were faculty. But as I didn’t know, I sat down at a table with literary agents and authors and started eating. They assumed me to be a new faculty, and I figured they were aspiring writers and we all got along famously.
