 INTERVIEW 

Meg Cabot

El Templo #11 (agosto 2009) por Carlota Echevarría


Two years take place between the first and the ninth novel of Princess Diaries (14 to 16). However, in the last novel, Mia is already 18. Is here any reason why you decided to skip those years? Surely your fans could love to know what happens in them. Are you going to write anything that takes place during that period?

I have! It's a novel called "Ransom My Heart" by Mia Thermopolis that Mia wrote during the eighteen months between books 9 and 10. It's been published here in the US, and all the author proceeds go to Greenpeace.

Princess Diaries 10is partially about Mia's struggles to get the book published. Readers who are interested in reading the book Mia worked so hard on during the months during which she wasn't writing in her diary can purchase copies and contribute to helping the environment, helping Mia's (and my) favorite cause!

As many of The Princess Diaries novels were published after the movies, he characters talk about them (which, by the way, is quite funny). What do you think about the movies?

I love them (well, not Princess Diaries 2 so much, because it's not based on the books, and nothing that happens in it happens in the books. But it's still cute)!

I love Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, and thought they were perfect in their roles. I, like Mia, think of the movies and the books as two different Princess Diaries universes though. One is very cute (Disney's), and one accurately portrays Mia's life (mine)!

Mia usually includes lists in her diaries: the cutest guys in high school, her favorite actors, Drew Barrimore movies… Do you agree with the contents of those lists?

Well, I'm not a teenaged girl anymore, so I don't totally relate to her lists (it would be scary if I did). I'm also not a vegetarian. Mia and I have some things in common, but not EVERYTHING. I do like most of the same things she does, though (except vegetables)!

It’s a little bit difficult to make this question without spoilers for Spanish readers (who have only read the first two books of Princess Diaries) but, have your fans complained about how the relationship between Mia and the Moscovitz siblings evolves?

Oh, yes! Endlessly. All I can say is, you have to keep reading. Readers tell me the reason they like my books is because the characters remind them of real people...and real people grow and change, and aren't always easy to get along with. Especially over a four year period, which is how long the Princess Diaries books take place during. (They're based a little bit on my own relationship with my best friend and highschool boyfriend, so I can vouch for their authenticity).

Do you think the success of Princess Diaries have made the publishing of other novels easier? Did you find any difficulties in getting Princess diaries published in the first place?

Like most authors, getting my first novel published was terribly difficult! It took three years of rejection just to get an agent, and then another year after that to get a publisher. And getting The Princess Diaries published was no different.

It's always hard for new authors to get their books published--but once they get that first book in print, it usually gets much easier.
