Interview: Gwendolyn Heasley, author of Don't Call Me Baby

Jun 4, 2014

Blogs are fantastic --- anyone can write one, and they can take readers into the worlds of fashion, cooking, music, middle grade novels... pretty much anything a person could ever want to know. But what if there was a blog about you that spared no details --- a blog that shared everything from your first words to your school troubles, and, if you're a girl, even talked about your first period?!

That's what Imogene, the protagonist in DON'T CALL ME BABY by Gwendolyn Heasley, has to contend with every day --- her mom is a famous blogger, and Imogene is her favorite, er, only, subject. When Imogene is forced to start her own blog as part of a school project, she is reluctant to put even more of her life in cyberspace. However, she realizes that this might be the chance she's been waiting for --- the chance to define herself for the first time.

In our interview with Gwendolyn, she tells us what she thinks about mommy bloggers, what actress would play Imogene in a movie and just how obsessed she was with The Baby-Sitters Club when she was a teen.
