About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

Becca,
If you had the opportunity to switch places with one of your characters, which one would you be willing to be you for the day and why? That character would take over your responsibilities/activities and in turn, you would take over that character's responsibilities/activities.
Thanks, Liza

What inspired you to write this awesome trilogy?

Hi Becca, I just wanna ask... How did you deal with YOUR first true love? The kind of love you got when you really knew for sure he's the one? sorry I know my question is lame but im at that age...

Katie Hanrahan said...

I was just wondering where your ideas and inspiration for the series came from. Did you have all the major events planned out ahead of time? Or did you make them up as you go? And out of curiosity, where did the character names come from? Just names you like, or is there more to it than that?

I'm also really bad at showing not telling. I have a story on goodreads.com and that's what a lot of my constructive criticism is on, do you have any advice for that?

Katie Hanrahan said...

Oh, and my email is snowracer@dls.net

Nicole said...

Why did you decide to write YA? Did you already have an image of Patch and Nora as "teenagers" in love, or did the writing just turn out that way?

Tayskii said...

While this might be a hard question, what is your absolute favorite part of all the books you've written so far? Which part do you hold most dear to you, and why?

REBECCA@ReadingWishes said...

So far during your your Australian tour have you had the courage to try Vegemite yet, if so, what'd you honestly think of it?

lemonie said...

Who do you enjoy reading in the YA World and Why?

lemonie said...

sorry forgot the email: lemoniepink@yahoo.co.uk

You're my favourite YA author Becca, but who is yours and which books do you find hard to put down?

BookGurl said...

Where did the characteristics of Patch come from? Not the fallen angel aspect but attitude portion and Norah's too? If you where giving advise to someone thinking or trying to write a book what would it be? Also last one, can you please have your assistant schedule a tour through Atlanta GA.

What advice would you give young people who are still figuring out their path/passion in life? What advice would you give a young Becca Fitzpatrick?

Sarah said...

Most of those questions you answered when I did travel what ended up to be 10 hours to see you at the Mall of America but I was way too nervous to ask you anything when I got to see you so my question is:

My first most important question is: What made you write in third person versus first person? (But I have 2 more I'll include).

After being rejected so many times and realizing you had to have a whole story before being able to be published...

How did you figure everything out on your own and handle all of the rejections and still conquer it so well, did you receive help from friends with editing and such before sending new queries each time, and did you send the copies to the same companies/agents repeatedly?


With lesser time frames on each new novel and more busyness how do the books keep getting better? (That's 3 questions)... Just a HUGE fan. Thanks.

Braine @ Talk Supe said...

Here's what I'd like to ask/discuss with Ms. Fitzpatrick:

As a YA writer, is there a conscious effort on your part to share the "right" values or influence the younger generation to be more wise and use their critical thinking in terms of making decisions?

Nora is so steadfast and fearless that I just have to ask this.

Jen said...

This is hard to choose just one....My question for Ms. Fitzpatrick is..."If you already have an ending for Book 4, does it include showing us what Nora & Patch's future looks like as "adults", maybe an Epilogue?

Thanks!

Melody @ Scared Of The Shadows said...

The one question I would most like to ask Becca if I were in the private chat is how do you write an ending for such a beautiful story and part from it when you spent years writing the story?

Cara White said...

In book four, if 'Patch is the one in danger', is Nora going to have to face the likes of the nephilim and fallen by herself in order to save him, or is he going to be communicating to her through her dreams like he has previously?

Hi! I really enjoy the Hush, Hush series but especially Nora's personality and character. How did Nora come to be Nora?
Thanks :)

At what point did you know that Nora had to become Nephillim? Was it difficult to find a way for Nora and Patch to be together forever?

My question for Becca is will we ever learn about Patch's upbringing? Does/Did he have family?

SweetDee85 said...

Do you think there will be a way to make Patch "feel"?

dmd1985@att.net

NinaTheBookworm said...

hi i love the hush hush series its amazing :) the question i would ask would be: will we ever find out about Patch's past?

klisibach@hotmail.com

Kaylee said...

This is so awesome! I'm a major Hush, Hush fan!

My question to Becca would be: Will we ever get to see Patch's backstory about the first human girl he ever fell in love with? It would be so cool to see how much he had (if he did) change over time, and what their relationship was like.

Hi!!!! I'm a HUGE fan of Hush, Hush (it's my favorite series, so it goes without saying that Becca is my favorite author). I' m an aspiring author my question would be, "What advice would you give to young aspiring authors?" Thanks!! This question is very important to me and this means a lot!

Tiffany & Katie said...

I was wondering when was the first moment you decided you wanted to be a writer? If you have any advice about getting published? I'm a big fan of your Hush hush series they are fabulous books. Thanks for writing your wonderful. Email tandbug@yahoo.com

MiddyMouse said...

Hi Becca,
I love your books and think you are a wonderful author. I wish you all the success :)
My question is, while writing this series what was the hardest part to come up with? The challenges you had.
Also I really want to know why you came up with the idea for patch to not be able to feel?
