Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four Tour: Author Interview

Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four by Nya Jade
Synopsis: The students of Green Lane Academy roam their halls unaware that below their manicured campus exists a prestigious school of an entirely different kind . . .

Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Pope has enrolled at the Campus Below: a spy academy for shape-shifters hidden deep beneath the grounds of a boarding school whose humans unknowingly protect it. There, thanks to a carefully planned schedule, she leads a double life: spy trainee Below and normal teenager Above.

As if two course loads, concealing a secret power she alone wields, and coping with her father’s recent death weren’t enough, Phoebe finds herself developing major feelings for actor and teen heartthrob Colten Chase, who attends the Campus Above and appears to be majoring in winning Phoebe’s heart. But when officials learn that Phoebe may be at the center of a startling prophecy, she becomes the target of shape-shifting assassins who will stop at nothing to suppress the truth.

Now Phoebe’s lessons about Shaper’s enemies and spycraft take on great importance as a menace stalks the campus, with Phoebe as its target. Meanwhile, what began as an unlikely relationship with Colten, quickly morphs into heartache when she suspects that something sinister lurks beneath this movie star’s glitter and fame. Suddenly, Phoebe’s caught in a mesh of lies, betrayals, and danger where she doesn’t know who to trust, and needs to rely on herself—and her secret power—to get to the truth and to stay alive.
P: What is your favorite part of being an author?
N: I really love the writing process. It's like putting together a complex puzzle. All of the right pieces have to come together to animate a story. It's magic when that happens!

P: Have you always wanted to be an author?
N: I think I've always wanted to tell stories. As a kid, I was always the storyteller in a group. So far I've been able to tell my stories through songwriting and novel writing. I feel very lucky.

P: Where is your favorite place to write?
N: I love writing while sitting on a sofa. It has to be a very deep sofa though - the kind where my feet can't touch the ground. Isurround myself with pillows and call it my writing nest.

P: Where did you get the inspiration for your book?
N: The inspiration for Phoebe Pope and the Year of Four came to me as a screenplay. I saw the idea of a secret paranormal school, within a regular school, as a movie and so I set out to write it. I didn't get too far because I couldn't figure out how to incorporate all of the paranormal elements into a screenplay. So, I switched gears and decided to write the book instead.

P: What can we expect from you in the future?
N: I'm excited to see what the future holds! I plan to continue Phoebe's adventure. I hope to write some new songs and would love to try my hand at writing a graphic novel.
N: Thank you so much for hosting me here today. I really appreciate it! xoxo Nya
