So we all know Shay Mitchell as Emily from ABC’s Pretty Little Liars, but did you know she just released a new book along with her best friend Michaela Blaney yesterday? Well she did! And Now we can say she added published author to her already many hats!
“Bliss” is a mix of fiction and non fiction about the life of three girls loosely based on Shay and Michaela’s actual lives, “finding their bliss in their early 20s.” In the book, Sophia is more the Shay Mitchell character, Demi is more of Michaela, and Leandra is more of a trait mix between girls they know, “not the greatest traits” as Michaela and Shay agreed.
Plus, we find out Shay’s well-known personal assistant and friend Sammy will be a different character in book two and that there will also be a book THREE for the series!
SO Let’s get down to questions!
Is there anything you are not good at?
I’m very good at eating but I’m not very good at cooking. The only good things I can make is marinara sauce and oiled pasta.
Who are the THREE people you most admire?
Why motivated you to start doing YouTube videos?
I started doing YouTube videos because I had so much fun on social media with Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. But I wanted to take it to another level. I have been so fortunate of being on the show and having amazing fans to be able to travel and get to meet people from all around the globe. I really wanted to take you guys with me on that experience so I can show you and show you that traveling can be such a wonderful experience and never to be afraid of it. I have lived on my own in far out places. I love traveling on my own along with the whole gang so that’s really why I started the YouTube videos.
What is the weirdest food you have ever eaten?
Weirdest thing I ever ate I think was some soft of bug in Thailand. It wasn’t a cockroach. It was like a silkworm. It was tiny.
What inspires you in life?
Honestly, I have to say my fans. I have to say there are moments when people are like how do you do all this you must get really tired. But it’s the energy I get from all of them and the support from them loving the show and loving what we do and what we put out.
Anddd! That’s all for now! BUT keep your eyes peeled because Shay and the rest of the Pretty Little Liars cast will be in NYC for Comic Con!
P.S Thanks for the selfie Shay!
