Interview With Julie Cross, Author of Chasing Truth

Interview With Julie Cross, Author of Chasing Truth

Today I'm featuring an interview with Julie Cross, author of Chasing Truth, which is out TODAY from Entangled TEEN.

Here's the blurbage:

When former con artist Eleanor Ames’s homecoming date commits suicide, she’s positive there’s something more going on. The more questions she asks, though, the more she crosses paths with Miles Beckett. He’s sexy, mysterious, arrogant…and he’s asking all the same questions.

Eleanor might not trust him – she doesn’t even like him – but they can’t keep their hands off of each other. Fighting the infuriating attraction is almost as hard as ignoring the fact that Miles isn’t telling her the truth…and that there’s a good chance he could be the killer.

This gives me so many Veronica Mars vibes, which is never a bad thing. Now read the interview and go buy Julie's book. (Buy mine, too, while you're at it.)

Reading through the Chasing Truth back cover copy, I am definitely getting a Logan Echolls vibe from Miles. So, here’s my question—How did you feel about Logan’s portrayal in the Veronica Mars movie?

Last year, when I binge-watched the series, at first Logan just blended in with the other jerks at the cool-kids table. But it didn’t take long for Logan to become the most interesting character to me. I’m trying to remember which episode specifically provided the turning point…episode three or four of season one. When he makes the video tribute to Lily. That ignited a tiny spark of curiosity, then a few episodes later, when we get a glimpse of Logan’s dad, Aaron Echolls, I began to see that he had a story to tell. After Logan and Weevil get thrown into detention together, the deal was sealed for me. I wanted more Logan Echolls. A character like Logan can represent hope and potential for growth. Logan is the guy you call when you’ve gotten yourself into some trouble.

As far as Miles being a Logan Echolls type…I don’t want to spoil Miles’ secrets but I will say that my main character, Ellie definitely has some Logan Echolls in her.

(Ed. note: Now I am really intrigued.)

Also, I don’t know about you, but Logan and V’s first kiss on the show is one of the greatest TV kisses of all time. What’s another of your favorite TV kisses?

Omg! Yes. Seriously.

Another favorite TV first kiss…Joey and Pacey on Dawson’s Creek.

Besides Logan and Veronica, who is your favorite TV couple of all time?

And besides Joey and Pacey? Next would probably be Lucas and Peyton from One Tree Hill.

Since this is a pop culture blog, I’m going to ask some quick, off-the-top-of-your-head this or that questions:

Best James Bond?    

Oh God…I’ve never seen any. I know, I’m weird.

Keaton, Kilmer, Clooney, Bale, or Affleck?

Clooney in the early days of ER.

Hottest Avenger?


Starks or Lannisters?

Are those bands?

(Ed. note: I have much to teach you about Game of Thrones. You have much to teach me about Dawson's Creek.)

Jess, Dean, or Logan?

Logan Huntzberger. Definitely.

Ross and Rachel or Chandler and Monica?

Ross and Rachel.

Pohler or Fey?


Jordan Catalano or Brian Krakow?


Freaks or Geeks?


Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne, Stacy, Dawn, Jessi, or Mal?

Kristy when I was in elementary school, then later Dawn. Or maybe Mary Anne.

Geena Davis in A League of Their Own: Best teammate or worst teammate?

Best. She’s solid. Consistent. Reliable.

I wrote a book! It's YA novel, THE SOUND OF US. You can find the details right here! Kirkus calls it "a winning story about a teenage voice student that hits all the right notes."
