‘Fallen’ novelist Lauren Kate reveals why Filipino fans are special


111016-LaurenKate_PUSH.jpgKasabay ng pagpapalabas ng pelikulang Fallen dito sa Pilipinas, dumalaw din ang sumulat ng nobela na pinagbasehan ng pelikula na si Lauren Kate. Sa isang special interview, naibahagi niya sa atin ang kanyang naging inspirasyon kung paano nabuo ang Fallen na sikat hanggang ngayon sa mga kabataan.

"The story started in me when I was in graduate school. I was in class and looking at the verses in the bible and in our first day of class our professor was reading the book of Genesis aloud and she said the line ‘the sons of God look down from heaven and they saw the daughters of men and they thought that they were beautiful.’ That’s a very simple line but this professor said that she believes and a lot of people believe that it might be the reason that God keeps Lucifer out of heaven."

December 2009 pa ng i-release ang Fallen novel na nasundan na ng Torment (September 2010); Passion (June 2011); Fallen in Love (January 2012); Rapture (June 2012) at Unforgiven (November 2015). Ayon kay Lauren mas challenge sa kanya bilang novelist ang Young Adult readers dahil buhay na buhay ang mga ito at mainit ang suporta sa kanyang mga gawa.

"Writing for the Young Adult is wonderful. The enthusiasm of my readers is so big and so genuine."

Ilang beses na rin nakarating sa Pilipinas si Lauren para sa kanyang book signing events at ibang level daw magmahal ang fans sa ating bansa.

"Being in the Philippines is a rather important place. It’s the place for one of my very first book signings. I was impressed by the crowds. I’m thrilled to be in touch with some of the other readers that I’ve met," pagtatapos ni Lauren.
