Interview with Hannah Moskowitz, author of A History of Glitter and Blood
08 Oct 2015
A HISTORY OF GLITTER AND BLOOD is one fairy’s attempt to write a history book about the war he and his friends just went through, but it keeps turning into a love story no matter how hard he tries to keep it dry and objective. Basically it’s The Handmaid’s Tale covered in glitter, but instead of Margaret Atwood the author was a sketchy nineteen-year-old. (I’m now a sketchy twenty-four year old.)
You’re hosting a dinner party and can invite anyone, alive or dead. Who’s coming to dinner?
Jared Padalecki, Melina Marchetta, and my mom.
BAM. You’re a superhero. What’s your superpower?
Teleportation, since my best friends are scattered around the country and I hate driving.
Which books are currently on your nightstand?
If by “on your nightstand” you mean “strewn all over your bed,” Aimee by Mary Beth Miller, Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan, Violent Ends by Shaun Hutchinson and a lot of other people (including me–it’s the copy I just got in the mail), Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez, and We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. The last is the only one I’ve finished. It is lovely.
What fictional literary world would you most like to visit?
I mean anyone who doesn’t say Hogwarts is a crazy person.
What’s on your writing desk?
Again, if this means “strewn all over your bed…” a jam jar, two bras, some headphones, a stuffed sheep, hot sauce, a box of hair dye, two Little Mermaid hairbrushes, mascara, salt packets, and a pint of ice cream I just finished.
What’s in your Netflix queue?
I just splurged on a new season of Who the Bleep Did I Marry? on Amazon because Netflix can’t keep up with my true crime needs.
What’s your favorite quote or moment from A HISTORY OF GLITTER AND BLOOD?
It’s gotta be the kissing scene.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
“That’s tomorrow-hannah’s problem.”
