Fun [Fact] Friday: Breathless Authors

Last Wednesday, the authors did a Q&A for the audience. So I jotted down some facts about the authors I don’t think any of us knew before…


Did you know…?

  • Matched and Across the Universe were originally supposed to be a standalone novel.
  • Ansel in Nightshade is based on Andrea’s little brother.
  • The Ourboroughs Society (from the Eternal Ones) went through 6+ different names before Kirsten finalized the name.
  • The word frex (from Across the Universe) means Financial Research of Exchange in our world. Beth thought it would be natural word for the characters to develop into a ‘curse.’ It is in exchange for today’s ‘F’ word.
  • Ally Condie loves Unicorns.
  • Kirsten Miller loves blowing things up.
  • Kirsten, Andrea and Ally all agree that the first line of a novel is the hardest to write. Brenna says that the last line is harder. Beth says the first is fun and the last it satisfying.

  1. Oooh, wow, lots of interesting facts! Haha, I love the sound of the word frex, it’s such a cute curse word. That’s so creative of Beth to go and create her own futuristic curse word. And Kirsten Miller sounds like a lot of fun, I wonder now if she blows anything up in her book. Thanks for sharing!
