Tell us about the journey that led to you writing this book.
I am a hopeless romantic, and romance will always be a part of my writings. I love the whimsicalness of it and the unpredictable/predictable nature of it.
Tell us about one of the people at the center of this book, and what makes them interesting.
Felicia Arman is a twin, and what makes her special is that through the tragedy she is still able to find her happiness and will to continue on with life after such a big loss. She finds herself in a place that is out of her comfort zone, but she makes it her own.
Why does this book (or this subject) matter to you? Why was it worth spending a year (or five, etc.) of your life on it?
Love matters to me because it is what can keep us alive and moving. We have motivation and dedication when we are doing things out of love. As cliche as it sounds, love makes the world go round. We have so much passion to give one another and I think when it becomes all-encompassing, no matter what that love is for, we can really be greater versions of ourselves.
What do you love about this book? What makes this book special to you? Is there a part that makes you cry? Makes you laugh? Is there a part you’re secretly most proud of? What is it?
I love the smile it brings to my face when I am sitting re-reading the scenes between Felicia and her partner in the book. The laugh I get when I can relate to the conversations between her and her friends, even their relationship and closeness. I am most proud of the story as a whole and how it came together. I had no idea where it was going to go at first.
