Today, I’m so happy to introduce Pam Jenoff, who is a masterful storyteller and such a kind, sweet person. I first read The Kommandant’s Girl about a year ago and loved it so much that I immediately picked up The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach, which was wonderful, as well! I can’t wait to read The Orphan’s Tale, which is coming out next!
If any of you are planning on attending the June ALA meeting in Orlando, Pam’s speaking at the event later this month!

2. How long you’ve been writing:
My whole life (really!) But writing seriously since 2001; first book accepted in 2005 and published in 2007.
3. List the books you’ve written (and are releasing soon!):
The Last Summer at Chelsea Beach, The Kommandant’s Girl, The Diplomat’s Wife, The Ambassador’s Daughter, The Winter Guest, Almost Home, A Hidden Affair and The Things We Cherished.
4. Share the best thing a fan’s ever told you:
Because my books deal with sensitive subjects around World War II and the Holocaust, I’m always most gratified when a survivor or veteran feels that I have gotten it right.
5. Share a sentence from a recent Goodreads review: I’m too scared to read them!
6. Tell us about the book you’re working on now: The Orphan’s Tale. Described as The Nightingale meets Water for Elephants, it was inspired by two true stories out of Yad Vashem and tells of a young Dutch girl who finds a train of unknown infants headed to a concentration camp. She takes one of the babies and flees, finding shelter with a German circus that is rescuing Jews.
7. Describe the book in 3 words: Circus saves Jews.

American Library Association Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida June 26th. So excited!
