Interview with the Author of The Summer of No Regrets
This post has been sorted into "Authors Interviewed" • Add Your Comment?

Hello! Today we have an interview with the author of The Summer of No Regrets, Katherine Grace Bond! She will be answering the interview questions with book line answers. Welcome, Katherine!

How did you feel when your book was being published by Sourcebooks Fire?
It felt both delicious and terrifying. I was shooting the rapids—about to go over the falls.

Was editing a fast process or slow process for The Summer of No Regrets?
It was like watching a movie. I couldn’t think what I was supposed to be doing next.

Where did you get the idea for this novel?
That bizarro place in the woods.

Was it hard to write this novel or easy?
It wasn’t so bad. No stranger than the people who channeled Mamda, Warrior Spirit.

Did you have multiple titles before choosing “The Summer of No Regrets?”
There were 8,000,000 results. 8 MILLION. I should have kept searching on cougars, but I was so brain-dead. Trent Yves stared out at me with long hair, with short hair, blond, brown, in a Mohawk. Trent with a shirt, Trent without a shirt, Trent without much on at all. Sad Trent, happy Trent, sexy Trent. Trent looking dodgy in Rocket, heroic in Imlandria, smart-alecky in Presto!, resilient in Sparrowtree, even small, cute and Triumphing Over Evil in Laser Boy.

If you could only choose one favorite scene in the book, which would it be?
He held his hand out to me. I took it. “Thanks,” he croaked and pulled me to him. He wrapped his arms around me. He was shaking, too. We stood that way for a long time. I smelled the wet wool of his sweater. He put his chin on my hair as if we’d always known each other. I felt the fear drain out of both of us. Devon had never, ever held me like that. No one had.

Are you currently writing any more books?
I nodded. “And I’m not any nearer to figuring out what to feed them.”

Thanks for an interesting interview, Katherine! 

The day Brigitta accidentally flings herself into the lap of a guy she’s never met, her friend Natalie is convinced he’s Trent Yves, egotistical heartthrob-in-hiding. When the boy, who calls himself Luke, is nearly eaten by a cougar, Brigitta finds herself saving his life, being swept into his spectacular embrace and wondering if she wants Natalie’s fantasy to be true.

As the two spend the summer together raising orphaned cougar cubs, Brigitta still can’t be sure of his true identity. But then again, since her grandparents’ death, her father’s sudden urge to give away all their possessions and become a shaman, and her own awkward transition from girlhood into a young woman, she isn’t sure of anything. What is the truth? More importantly, can she accept it?
