Natasha Deen is pretty awesome. She’s a YA and children’s writer who’s written more than a dozen books, including The Not So Secret Case Files of Billy Vale, P.I., the Guardian series, and the Retribution series. She criss-crosses Canada teaching new writers and visiting classrooms, and she’s won a string of accolades including nominations for the Sunburst and the Alberta Readers’ Choice Award and wins for the Moonbeam, CCBC Best Pick for Kids and Teens.

Readers keep coming back for her mix of mystery, action, horror, and humour, some of which arise from her own real-life experiences, and teachers keep booking her because her workshops and teaching guides offer genuine value.

Deen met with me at the food court of Westmount Mall in Edmonton on September 26, 2017. She discussed: 

  • How studying psychology can help you become a better writer and the major insight it gave her into herself
  • What makes YA different from other niches, how it can change lives, and how writing it can make you sell more books in any category
  • The new fiction category that might be your best writing and marketting niche
  • The power of names: from pen names to those stolen from her ancestors
  • How writing can make you physically and mentally healthier
  • How your YA writing can help kids become superheroes
