They were asked how they got to collaborate on these books, and P.C. (the mom) answered, "I've taught high school since 1993, so I have a pretty good handle on teen-speak, but I realized as I was trying to write first person from a sixteen year olds point of view that I was getting stuck on what should have been pretty simple word usage questions. Well, I kept yelling down the hallway from my office to where Kristin was "innocently" (her word!) watching MTV and asking her questions. After I did this several times I decided it was ridiculous! That I should just see if Kristin wanted to co-author with me. She said yes - my agent loved the idea - and we took off from there.
I write the draft and then I send it to Kristin for her rewrite. I often leave her notes in the text as I'm writing, as well as blanks I ask her to fill in. When she gets done I read the manuscript again before sending it off to our editor in New York. It sounds complicated, but it's really not."
The mom of the duo, P.C. Cast, is an award-winning fantasy and paranormal romance author, as well as an experienced speaker and teacher. She lives and teaches in Oklahoma. The daughter, Kristin Cast, has won awards for her poetry and journalism. She also lives in Oklahoma, where she attends the University of Tulsa as a communications major.
