Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in North Carolina, which is a beautiful, diverse state. It has lots of history, which is great for inspiration. In fact, my latest novel Hush Puppy from Featherweight Press, is set there. I also have another work in progress set on the NC coast. I guess it's a big part of who I am now, even though I haven't lived there for a long time.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, Hush Puppy, is an alternate Romeo & Juliet story about a black girl who falls in love with a white boy. When she takes the blame for him after he's involved in the accidental death of another girl, she's left wondering if he ever cared about her at all. It might be a story about race, but ultimately it's a story about forgiveness and the power of friendship. You can read more about it on my web site www.lisatcresswell.com
