Author Interview with Lauren Baratz-Logsted – Author of The Twin’s Daughter

I really want to read The Twin’s Daughter by Lauren Baratz-Logsted. BUT my library *still* doesn’t have it, SO, I decided to interview Ms. Baratz-Logsted while I wait :)

IceyBooks: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

LBL: I’ve had 19 books – for adults, teens, tweens, and even young children – published since 2003. Before getting published, I was a book reviewer for Publishers Weekly, a freelance editor, a sort-of librarian and a window washer. I’m shorter than I look, enjoy shooting pool, and take a work break nearly every day between 3 and 4 so I can watch General Hospital.

The Twin's DaughterIB: If you weren’t an author what you would have become?

LBL: Mayor of Danbury.

IB: Did you always want to be an author?

LBL: I think I wanted to be one even before I knew that’s what I wanted. 

IB: Where did you find the inspiration for The Twin’s Daughter?

LBL: I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of identical twins and thought it would be different to look at the story from a side I’d never seen examined before – that of the child of a twin, i.e., what would it be like to have the face you loved most growing up stamped on someone else’s face as well?

IB: If you were one of the characters from TTD, who would you be?

LBL: I’d most want to be Kit but that might be difficult since he’s a boy.

    This is another book I have in my to-be-read list! I was always fascinated with twins when I was a kid, and I think she brings up a good point that it would be really weird to have a parent that is a twin…
