Ok Girls, how long have you been writing?
Jessica: Iâ€™ve been writing on and off for years. Â I donâ€™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 90â€™s, I might have written some horrible Star Trek stuff before that.
Briana: Â I have a clear memory of writing back when I was 9 years old. Â It was a pop up book made with construction paper and crayons and featured farm animals. Â I have no idea what the story itself was about, but I remember those details. Â Iâ€™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. Â Iâ€™ve grown up for most of my life in Minnesota around the Twin Cities. Â Currently I live in St Paul with my partner and sometimes coauthor.
Briana: Â I was born in Chicago and grew up there or in the suburbs nearby for 18 years of my life. Â 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. Â 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?
