Melissa de la Cruz is one of our favorite authors of all time. A Best Selling YA queen, she has written dozens of books we're obsessed with - The Isle of the Lost, Blue Bloods, Because I Was a Girl, and more. She is also one of the reasons Sloomoo exists. We have shared our story before. One of our founders, Karen Robinovitz, fell in love with slime while playing with Melissa's daughter. Karen was going through a really hard time in her personal life and she found sliming with Melissa's then 10 year-old, Mattie, to be so therapeutic that it became Karen's obsession. Hence, Sloomoo.
But back to Melissa. She is a brilliant story teller with a sharp sense of humor and a serious love for slime herself. We sat down with her to dig into her inspiration and butter slime cravings and Lord of the Rings.
