Author Interview: Daria Snadowsky
I was recently introduced to Daria Snadowsky’s Anatomy series, and I cannot brag enough on it! It’s real, honest, and heartfelt. I was so excited when Daria agreed to an interview with me! I really hope you guys love the interview and that maybe it will get more people interested in these books.
1. ANATOMY OF A BOYFRIEND is a very honest and thought-provoking novel that explores the desires of teens who are coming into themselves. What was the most difficult thing about writing such a raw and detailed story?
2. Dom is one of my favorite characters in that she acts like I think a real life teenager would act in her situation. What is your favorite and least favorite part of Dom’s personality?
3. ANATOMY OF A SINGLE GIRL picks up right where ANATOMY OF A BOYFRIEND LEFT OFF, yet it was published quite a few years after BOYFRIEND was. Was it difficult to continue Dom’s story or was it easy for you to dive back into her head?
4. In ANATOMY OF A BOYFRIEND, Dom’s love interest is the adorably sweet Wes who breaks Dom’s heart for the first time. Can you describe Dom’s next love interest in ANATOMY OF A SINGLE GIRL?
5. What would you say is the hardest aspect to stay true to in your books?
6. Will there be more in your Anatomy series?
After everything that happened—my first boyfriend, my first time, my first breakup—jumping back into the dating game seemed like the least healthy thing I could do. It’s not that I didn’t want to fall in love again, since that’s about the best feeling ever. But as a busy college premed still raw from heartbreak, which is the worst feeling ever, I figured I’d lie low for a while. Of course, as soon as I stopped looking for someone, an impossibly amazing—and devastatingly cute—guy came along, and I learned that having a new boyfriend is the quickest way to recover from losing your old one.
The moment we got together, all my preconceptions about romance and sex were turned upside down. I discovered physical and emotional firsts I never knew existed. I learned to let go of my past by living in the present. It was thrilling. It was hot. It was just what the doctor ordered.
But I couldn’t avoid my future forever.
