7 Questions with #Author @Vanna_Smythe (The Grower's Gift) #Dystopian #YA

How do you work through self-doubts and fear?

My biggest fear is that my writing is not good enough. But, given that I have now received a lot of positive feedback on my books, I generally just relax and write. Whatever is not good enough can always be fixed during the revision stage, after all.

What scares you the most?

I am terrified of snakes, so being in a room or pit full of lose snakes would probably give me a heart attack.

What makes you happiest?

Reading a good book, watching a good movie, enjoying the peace and quiet, preferably at the seaside.

What’s your greatest character strength?

Courage and perseverance.

Why do you write?

I feel most alive when I’m writing. It is also possibly the only task, at which I feel driven to excel.

Have you always enjoyed writing?

Yes, I’ve enjoyed writing since I learned how to, pretty much.

What motivates you to write?

The need to tell a story from start to finish, and my desire to build a career as a writer.


The future is bleak in the year 2102. The planet is in chaos and the weather patterns have completely shifted, turning most of the world into an uninhabited wasteland.

The rich and powerful of North America have pulled back into the six remaining megacities, erasing all trace of a central government and leaving millions displaced by the environmental crisis to fend for themselves in the dying world.

Sixteen-year-old Maya has a gift, a power she thinks can heal the earth and make it habitable again. A gift that she must learn to harness. The school for the gifted in Neo York is the only place where she can learn to control her power and reach her potential.

Yet the school is not what it seems. Ran by the ruthless head of the city of Neo York, the school's only objective is to extract the powers of the gifted and then discard them. Only Ty, heir to the city, can keep Maya from being destroyed there. But Ty has a secret, and his loyalty to his family has never wavered.

Will his growing love for Maya be strong enough to save them both?
