I'm happy to be receiving author Anna Adams today to promote her new YA novel, A French Girl in New York.
Maude Laurent is a spirited 16 year-old orphan who grew up in a small, provincial town in North of France with a passion for piano and a beautiful voice. One day in Paris, she is discovered by an American music producer who takes her to New York to live with him and his close-knit family while producing her first album, with help from teen pop star, Matt. Maude will dive into a new fascinating world discovering New York City, music, family, love and the truth about her past.

Hello Anna, it's a pleasure to have you here. Please tell us, what inspired you to write this book?
What inspired me for this book is my love for music first of all. That's why in this book Maude uses her classical music background to enrich her new pop career.
But also what inspired me are the two countries closer to my hear, the two countries in which I grew up and became what I am today: France and America.
Can you name some of your favorite authors?
Anne Bronte for one -- she is a lot less famous than her two sisters, but I think she is the best of the three -- Charlotte Bronte, J.K.Rowling, George Eliot, Toni Morrison.
Any advice for aspiring writers?
Travel, travel, travel! In your own country in foreign countries, everywhere you can! It is an inextinguishable source of inspiration.
What are you working on now -- or would you rather surprise us?
Currently, I'm working on the sequel of the Maude Laurent series. In A French Girl in New York we get to know Maude on her road to fame. In the second installment, Maude will learn to deal with her newfound fame, she'll learn to assert herself and find her place in the music industry. Her romantic relationships won't be a smooth ride either!
I'm also working on a short story that focuses on street art.
Best of luck to you Anna and thanks for stopping by. You can follow Anna on:
