Cole Gibsen eBooks

Cole Gibsen first realized she different when, in high school, she was still reading comic books while the other girls were reading fashion magazines.

It was her love of superheroes that first inspired her to pick up a pen. Her favorite things to write about are ordinary girls who find themselves in extraordinary situations.

When Cole Gibsen isn't writing books for young adults, she can be found rocking out with her band, sewing crazy costumes for the fun of it, picking off her nail polish, or drinking milk straight from the jug -- provided no one is looking.

Interview with Cole Gibsen

If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be?

Professor McGonagall. I adore everything about her from her wit to her sense of humor. But on the flip side, when I’m in a bad mood, I think about how much fun it would be to go completely evil-crazy like Bellatrix. I’d be so dangerous with a wand. *sinister grin*

What book were you forced to read at school that no child should have to study?

Oh geez, I was completely traumatized by Lord of the Flies. I can’t remember exactly how old I was when I read it, but I was still at the age where you expect books to have happy endings. I remember thinking, “Why are you guys sharpening those sticks. What are you doing...Wait! No!”

How do you feel about taking no for an answer?

I guess it depends on the situation. If I were to ask someone, “Hey! Can I go swimming in that pool?”

And they were, “NO! You fool! That’s a shark tank!”

I’d be totally cool with that.

Tell us one thing about yourself you wouldn’t want us to know.

I have several scars on my hands. If you ask how I got them, I’ll tell you a story, but it will not be the truth. The real story is an embarrassing secret that I’ve only ever told to my brother and husband, a story that involves a road trip, a tornado, a woman with a shot gun, and crazy teenage shenanigans. I wish I was making that up.

Had you always wanted to be a writer?

Always. But I had so many roadblocks put in my path that I didn’t have the courage to actively pursue my dream until my late twenties.

What is the greatest challenge you have had to overcome in your writing career?

My own self doubt. I grew up with a person who inflicted a lot of negativity on me, so much so that I began to believe the things they said about me. It took me years to realize that person was only insecure about themselves and that I really did have worth. But still, to this day, I can sometimes hear their voice when I’m writing, telling me I’m not good enough. Luckily, I’ve gotten a lot better about tuning it out.

Do you base characters on real people you have known?

I’d be lying if I said some personality traits don’t make cameos.

What do you think of eBooks? Do you support digital publishing?

Absolutely. I love how environmentally friendly they are as well as their accessibility.

If you could choose one superhero power, what would it be and why?

My favorite super here is Jean Grey. Later in her life she becomes a vessel to the Phoenix Force. When she’s in control of the force her uniform is green but when the Phoenix Force takes her over and goes on murderous rampages, her uniform turns red and she’s known as the Dark Phoenix.

If I had a super power, I kinda wish that I’d be able to change the color of my outfit depending on my mood just like Jean Grey. That way if I woke up in a bad mood, my clothes would turn red and people would be like, “Uh-oh. Look at Cole’s outfit. She’s turned into Dark Cole. We better just leave her alone for awhile or she might set us all on fire.” That would be awesome.
