Another of our exclusive author interviews from BEA is with the multi-talented author/editor, Deborah Noyes. Her YA debut novel, PLAGUE IN THE MIRROR, comes out in just under two weeks on June 11th. Today we have an exclusive interview with Deborah that we're excited to share with you!

PLAGUE IN THE MIRROR by Deborah Noyes is set for a June 11th publication date from Candlewick Press. Take a look at a little bit more about the book and be sure to add it to your Goodreads Shelf.
In a sensual paranormal romance, a teen girl’s doppelgänger from 1348 Florence lures her into the past in hopes of exacting a deadly trade. It was meant to be a diversion — a summer in Florence with her best friend, Liam, and his travel-writer mom, doing historical research between breaks for gelato. A chance to forget that back in Vermont, May’s parents, and all semblance of safety, were breaking up. But when May wakes one night sensing someone in her room, only to find her ghostly twin staring back at her, normalcy becomes a distant memory. And when later she follows the menacing Cristofana through a portale to fourteenth-century Florence, May never expects to find safety in the eyes of Marco, a soulful painter who awakens in her a burning desire and makes her feel truly seen. The wily Cristofana wants nothing less of May than to inhabit each other’s lives, but with the Black Death ravaging Old Florence, can May’s longing for Marco’s touch be anything but madness? Lush with atmosphere both passionate and eerie, this evocative tale follows a girl on the brink of womanhood as she dares to transcend the familiar — and discovers her sensual power.
