Illuminate (Gilded Wings, #1)

If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
I’d totally go back to Paris in the ‘20s and hang out with Hemingway—I would’ve had such a crush on him!

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
I'd love to be able to fly--that's probably why I wrote these books about angels!

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Mint chocolate chip. Yum!
What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?
Oooh, there were so many! ALICE IN WONDERLAND, LITTLE WOMEN, the entire Nancy Drew series.  Girl power!
Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book?
I'm kind of obsessed with the song "Through the Deep, Dark Wood" by the Veils--it really captures the freewheeling, wild times of INFATUATE. But I have a whole playlist here! http://hmhyoungreadersblog.com/teens/young-adult/infatuate-and-illuminate-fans-check-out-aimees-infatuate-playlist/

What’s one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors?
Keep writing and never give up!! 
What is your favorite Quote?
"Make it work." -- Tim Gunn
I have a Tim Gunn bobblehead with his mantra on my desk. It gets me through those tough writing days! 

Something your readers would never guess about you?

Here’s a dark secret: Never loan me one of your books! If you do and I like it, I will probably never give it back. HA! I’m terrible! 

What do you find inspiration in?
Inspiration is everywhere! I live in DC and I love wandering around all of the Smithsonian museums. My favorite writing place is actually the courtyard of the Portrait Gallery—so beautiful and peaceful.

What is your favorite part of the writing/publishing process?
The best part is hearing from readers! Pop by my website aimeeagresti.com and drop me a line!
