imageInternational Blogger, Natasha Ly, of the blog TheNatashaReads was quick to contact Anya Valentino for an exclusive interview.

“You always read teen novels or watch movies where the shy underdog of a girl becomes popular and in the end “gets the guy” and then allegedly has everything and lives “happily ever after” – and the popular girl is often just the mean girl. I thought it would be fun to turn it around and write a book from the most popular girl’s point of view and her struggles in life as popularity in real life is far from a “happily ever after scenario”. To my mind, the world is not just black and white like that.” Anya Valentino explains to 17-year-old Blogger to the question of when she started having scraps of ideas to write ‘Misunderstood – Secrets of a Teen Queen.’

The interview takes places over Instagram via direct messages, as the two girls are continents apart.

“How many books are you thinking to write within the ‘Misunderstood-series’, referring to the fact that you in the end of the book write that a sequel to Misunderstood will be released in 2016/2017?” Natasha asks curiously.

“Right,” Anya confirms acknowledging and continues, “I’m currently working on the sequel to ‘Misunderstood – Secrets of a Teen Queen’ and it will reveal a lot more about Enya Utzon’s past, secrets, insight into her privileged and luxurious lifestyle in LA, search for what true love is and her future as an A-list movie star, and how she handles the increasing pressure of other people’s expectations! So far, I’m just taking it one book at the time and the story unfolds as I write it. So, I really can’t say yet if there’ll be more to come after this sequel!”

Natasha points out that a lot of exclusive brands are mentioned in the novel, but Anya herself isn’t too much into brands. It’s more about style and attitude, she says. That being said, she does love one brand specialized in leather clothes and accessories: StineKimDesign
In the novel ‘Misunderstood – Secrets of a Teen Queen’ the young protagonist, Enya Utzon, naturally also wears a white leather jacket by StineKimDesign.
