The Great Unknown: Daniel Handler Interviews National Book Award-Winner Judy Blundell
Handler, Daniel
School Library Journal, v55 n1 p32-34 Jan 2009
This article presents an interview with National Book Award-winner Judy Blundell. For nearly 20 years, Blundell has toiled in anonymity, turning out more than 100 mysteries, romances, and media tie-ins under various pen names, such as Jude Watson. But in mid-November, the writer-for-hire was suddenly shoved into the spotlight. That's when "What I Saw and How I Lied" (Scholastic, 2008)--the first title Blundell has put her name on--won the prestigious National Book Award for Young People's Literature. The novel--an anything-but-ordinary tale of romance, betrayal, and murder set in 1947--follows 15-year-old Evie and her family as they seek a new start in Florida.
