YA author Alice Oseman talks about the writing process and life as a professional author

Alice Oseman is one of the few YA authors who actually began her first novel before she was technically a young adult. After writing her debut novel, Solitaire, at 17, the book was published to wide acclaim, garnering praise from critics, one of whom described it as “The Catcher In The Rye for the digital age.”

Now 21, Alice Oseman recently published her second novel Radio Silence, which is already drawing attention for its stark contemporary realism and writing skill at deconstructing many YA tropes, including a strong emphasis on platonic relationships, diverse characters and, as Alice herself describes it, “sarcastic teenagers on the Internet.”

We were lucky enough to talk with Alice Oseman recently about writing her new book, her writing process, and life since becoming a popular author. Check out what she had to say!
