Now, we aren't calling Rosoff a copycat, but Bob certainly bears a whole lot of resemblance to this J. R. "Bob" Dobbs guy. Could it be him? He is quite handsome. (source)

Rosoff started writing because her sister died of breast cancer. The week that her first book hit the shelves she found out that she had breast cancer herself. No wonder she's had the big-picture questions on her mind. (source)

For a lady who wrote a whole novel about God, it's funny that she's an atheist, isn't it? (Well, considering the kind of God she's writing about… maybe not.) (source)

Apparently Meg Rosoff thinks herself quite the matchmaker. Are you an author? Are you single? Rosoff will hook you up. (source)
