For the very first segment of Pen-ding Advice, I sat down with my friend and fellow writer Talia Tucker about writing and comedy. Talia is one of the funniest people I know, and her comedy shines through her debut novel, RULES FOR RULE BREAKING, a Young Adult rom-com debuting March 19 through Kokila, an imprint of Penguin Randomhouse. Kirkus Reviews called it a “thoughtful coming-of-age story filled with rom-com cuteness,” which means you KNOW it’s going to endear us all. We spoke about blending comedy with storytelling, and how comedy helps us balance out the world. I’ve condensed our conversation for clarity!
If someone were to Google you, what would you want it to say?
TT: Spectacular. Just kidding. I am Talia Tucker, an author of—right now, just Young Adult rom-com—but that will change in the future, hopefully. I’m based out of New Jersey, and I’m half-Korean and half-Jamaican.
