Teenager of the month!
Although most Australian teenagers relax in their summer holidays, seventeen year old Alexandra Adornetto spent her holiday writing a novel,The Shadow Thief, when she was only 13. By the age of 16, she had already written three books.
She spoke to our Teen Magazine about her life.

Q: How did you start writing?
A: I have always liked writing. Both my parents are English teachers. They've always had books at home and have always been readers.
Q: What did your parents think when you began writing?
A: I think they thought it was just a hobby. They were surprised when I didn't stop writing.
Q: How did you find a publisher*?
A: I sent my first book off to a publisher when I had written about half of it. I was sure someone would want to publish it, but I didn't think it would happen so quickly.
Q: You're now studying for your final tests. Are you still writing?
A: Yes, I am writing another book. This one is for teenagers. I've written three books for young readers, but I wanted to try something new.
Q: Do your teachers have any problems with your writing career?
A: My teachers are great about it! They understand when I have to leave school for interviews or writers' festivals. They're a bit worried because it's my final year now, but they know I'm serious about my writing.
Q: Do you still have time for friends and other interests?
A: Well, I make time for my friends. I try to live as normal a life as possible. I write every day, but I often go out with friends at night. I love singing and drama and so I want to spend time on my hobbies, too.
