Becksta is the “Young Adult” Book Contributor on Squidoo

me1Today we’re happy to introduce you to Becksta. She’s our “Young Adult” Book Contributor on Squidoo.

Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
One thing that I like about my niche is that it changes a lot. Although the basics are the same in that I’ll always be writing about Young Adult Books, did you know that there are now 2 different levels of Young Adult books, with the later marketed at “New Adults” aged 18 and over.

Sadly, as far as I can see, the displays in bookstores haven’t really changed to take this into consideration.

Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I’d always had an interest in Young Adult books from when I was a young adult myself, though I sadly drifted out of the area for a number of years. However, the purchase of a Kindle soon bought me back when I was able to find that there are still books and authors out there today that I can enjoy as much today as I used to the books and authors I enjoyed as a young adult myself.

Who had the most influence in your life?
There are lots of people who have left their mark on my life over the years. Right now, there are 2 authors I simply can’t get enough of in the Young Adult market. S M Reine is the first simply because of her skilled imagination – many a time I felt like I was a wolf reading her “Seasons of The Moon” series.

The second author that has left her mark on my life has to be Quinn Loftis. I first found my love of Quinn in her “Grey Wolves” series – though I was late to discover it since she already had six books out and was writing book seven. Having dreamed of being an author myself from a young age, it was Quinn who encouraged me to pick up my pen and start writing again.

    I love Young Adult books. Fantasy and science fiction are my favorite.They seem to have more “magic” than their adult fiction counterparts.
