Author Interview – Moira Young

Moira Young is one of two Canadian authors nominated for this year’s award. Although she now lives in England, her childhood spent in Western Canada heavily influenced the landscape of Blood Red Road. There was no interview with Young available on YouTube, but BBC News conducted an interview with her in January, 2012, after Blood Red Road won the Costa Book Award (a top British book prize). In this video, Young speaks about her career and why she writes for teens. (Fun fact: she trained as both a dancer and an opera singer before she became a writer.) If you have questions about the book itself, check out this short Q&A with Moira Young on the publisher’s website.
