This post will have Maureen McGowan - author of the Dust Chronicles - live chat! She will be talking about her books, herself, and questions you have! Please tweet #MaureenLiveChat if you want to ask Maureen a question.


I'm excited about the chat!

I had a reader send me questions via e-mail.

do you plot your books before you start writing?

Did you know what was going to happen in the third book before you wrote the first and second books?

Which traits of your own personality make it into your books?

What does a typical writing day look like for you?

What do you talk about at school visits?

Thanks for doing a live chat, Maureen!!!!

Do you have any advice for beginning writers?

Where did you get the idea for Deviants?
What has been the hardest thing about writing the series so far?
How have the characters grown throughout the series?
Do you fall in love with your characters a little? (Burn, c'mon.)
Did you freak yourself out writing about the Shredders?
Is Glory the last book or do you think you might revisit this world?

Hi Maureen - I'm a huge fan of the Dust Chronicles. Look forward to reading Glory!! My question: If you could collaborate with any author, living or dead, who would it be?

Have you always wanted to be a writer?
From Shelby

Hi Maureen.
How do you come up with your ideas for your books?
Do you sit down and plot your book or do you just come up with an idea and write?
If you were asked which one of your three books from the trilogy is your favourite, what would be your answer?
What do you love most about writing?

Is there any chance that this series could be made into a movie or TV series? I would love to see the movie if it came to be!

Cal or Burn?


Maureen I'm such a huuuuge fan! I'm dying for Glory – you finished the second book on such a cliffhanger!!

Okay, my question: are you a plotter or a panster? While writing the book, did anything turn out differently than you expected, or than you planned?


What made you decide that you wanted to be a writer?

Should you read the books in order?

Hi I'm not sure if I'm late, but I'd love to know what about the younger generation speaks to Maureen enough for her to want to write for them!

Good interview.

Thanks so much for all the questions!!! I'll answer the ones we didn't get to on my blog when I post a link to the video chat!

And thank you Rachel for conducting such a great interview!

What is Twilight?


  1. The soft glowing light from the sky when the sun is below the horizon, caused by the reflection of the sun's rays from the atmosphere.
  2. The period of the evening during which this takes place, between daylight and darkness.
dusk - gloaming - nightfall
