Ok Girls, how long have you been writing?
Jessica: I’ve been writing on and off for years. I don’t remember my first story or when I started, but the earliest one I can remember with any detail was a fanfiction for Bucky O Hare and the Toad Wars back in the early 90’s, I might have written some horrible Star Trek stuff before that.
Briana: I have a clear memory of writing back when I was 9 years old. It was a pop up book made with construction paper and crayons and featured farm animals. I have no idea what the story itself was about, but I remember those details. I’ve been writing on and off ever since, from fanfiction to what I write now.
Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.
Jessica: I was born in Missouri but moved to Minnesota shortly after. I’ve grown up for most of my life in Minnesota around the Twin Cities. Currently I live in St Paul with my partner and sometimes coauthor.
Briana: I was born in Chicago and grew up there or in the suburbs nearby for 18 years of my life. I left home to go to Iowa State University, where I met Jessica online, and after graduation in 2006 I moved to Minnesota to be with her. We live together in St. Paul right now with our cats and geeky things.
How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?
