What is your favorite music?
I love many different genres, but my favorite band is Thirty Seconds to Mars
What is your favorite item of clothing?
My new jelly leopard-print jelly boos from Hot Topic. So cute and comfy! Not only stylish, but also perfect for a walk on the beach with Hayden.

My iPod, Hello Kitty notebook, black nail polish, two flashdrives, and battered OneRepublic CD case.
Lastly, do you think the author, Sherry Soule, portrayed you accurately?
Yup. Sherry’s pretty awesome and she tells one helluva a good story. But she likes to take breaks at the worst times! Like when I’m in major trouble, she goes off looking for a snack and leaves me hanging. So not cool.
Thanks for answering all of my questions, Sloane. I will try not to leave you in a precarious predicament again. But I can’t make any promises. LOL
Thank you so much for hanging with Sloane and me today. It’s been an honor to reveal a different side regarding one of my favorite characters with all of you. If you haven’t seized your copy of this interstellar love story, LOST IN STARLIGHT yet, please do so.
High school senior Sloane Masterson lives a quiet existence. She has awesome friends, gets excellent grades, and writes a column for the Haven Gazette. But her life goes from dullsville to bizarro when she witnesses mysterious loner Hayden Lancaster performing some freaky superhuman feats.
Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, and she’s not above stalking. But one look into Hayden’s remarkable eyes, and she’s crushing hard.
Even at the swoonworthy hunk’s insistence that hanging out with girls like Sloane is “off limits” by his strange family, she can’t resist him or wanting to solve the mystery.
Things get really complicated when a beautiful alien sets her sights on Hayden—and this devious girl’s not looking for a green card!
Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, über snobby extraterrestrials, and getting a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating. As their diverse worlds collide and the romantic sparks fly, Sloane must decide if Hayden’s secrets are worth risking her life to protect.
