1.Where were you born and where do you call home?
I grew up on a farm in
and now I spend my time in I will admit that I hated living on a farm
but now that I live in the city, I kind of miss the farm. I could totally see myself as one of those
writers who buys a secluded cabin in the Omaha,
mountains and only comes out once a week for food…okay, maybe not
really but doesn’t it sound calming? Colorado
2.Tell us about something that has just/recently happened in your life that you would like to share?
LOL. I work as a Director of Accounting and Human Resources during the day and the last few weeks, I’ve spent all my waking hours crunching numbers. I don’t think many people expect a romance writer to work as an accountant; they really are in two separate universes.
3.you had to sum up plastic hearts in 30 or less words, what would you say?
It’s a story about finding yourself, learning about true love and letting go of stereotypes and following your heart. Sometimes we find what we need when we’re not looking…
4. If you gave Alex and Dane an opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say?
Well, I think Alex would say that she is sorry for all the pain and upset she caused you in Plastic Hearts and Dane would say that he is grateful for all the love he’s been getting from the ladies but his heart belongs to Alex.
5. If your book was made into a TV series or Movie, what actors would you like to see playing your characters? Please send me pics lol!!!
I see Alex as Britt Robertson...
I see Dane ad Jed Hill…
6. List 3 books you just recently read and would recommend to readers?
I didn’t read this one recently but I have to give a shout out to my favorite book of all time, The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher. I can’t even put into words how much I LOVE that book. I mean I LOVE it.
Two books I read recently that I would recommend are Relentless by Cassia Leo and One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy. They were both well told, new adult novels that gave me the angsty feeling I love.
7. What is Your Favorite Wine?
I’m actually a beer girl. Nothing beats a cold bottle of Leinenkugel. I also love vodka with grapefruit juice. I like wine sometimes but I will pick a beer over it every time.
8. Is there an Author that you would really like to meet in person?
Probably Tarryn Fisher..that dream is coming true next weekend in
Her stories twist and turn and leave me feeling completely torn up
inside. I LOVE it; I wish I could be
half the writer she is. Boston
9.What authors have inspired your work?
Hmmm, this is hard. I love the great mix of humor and angst in Colleen Hoover’s writing and her books are pure beauty; if I can be half the writer she is, I will be happy. I also love the symbolism in Katja Millay’s writing. I love symbolism and books with underlying meanings and Katja does that perfectly. And I wish I could twist readers’ minds half as well as Tarryn Fisher.
10. EBook, Paperback or Hardcover?
Ebook is my friend. Do you remember the days when you had to get in the car and go to Barnes and Nobles every time you needed a new read? The Kindle was a lifesaver; if I’m bored at 11:00pm, I can just download a new book. If I love a book, though, I want it in paperback also.
11. Are you currently working on any upcoming projects?
I’m working on Glass Hearts for early summer which is the continuation of Dane and Alex’s story and I’m contemplating writing a couple books on secondary characters from Plastic Hearts. I’m also working on a top secret New Adult novel for later this summer. I won’t give many details at this point but I will say if you thought Plastic Hearts twisted your heart, just wait for this one…it hurts to even write it.
Thank you for having me Doc;)
Thank You Mrs. De Jong for stopping by. Cant wait to read your next book.
