Kay Honeyman has loved to read for as long as she can remember. She majored in French and English and has a graduate degree in English Language and literature, where her favorite classes were in Shakespeare, Walt Whitman and Modern British novels. She began seriously writing while waiting for the adoption process of her second child to come through. In addition to writing, Honeyman likes to garden and teach. She teaches middle school and claims to watch too much reality TV. According to Kay, writing is "like a rugby game. You feel bruised and battered and like you might have a minor concussion, but you also feel like you are on top of the world, and you’ll be back for more at the next game." Her new book, Intereference, is a contemporary YA romance that one reviewer said "is an intelligent, wonderfully crafted modern-day re-telling of Jane Austen's Emma. Add dash of Friday Night Lights to modernize it and you have an apt description of Honeyman's latest work.
