One of my favorite bloggers, Rene’s Getaway, gave me the opportunity to talk about RBTY in a guest author interview. Here’s an excerpt of the interview. Please visit Rene’s Blog to read the complete interview.
Can you describe Running Back to You in 20 words?
RBTY is the wish-it-were-true story of young love with a dash of suspense, humor, and hometown nostalgia.
Without giving away any spoilers, for those who have not read Running Back to You, what was your favorite scene to write?
Since you’re asking about fun, I’d have to say it’s the drunken party scene. The main character, Juliette (Jette) is feeling heart broken and she washes away her troubles with good friends and a little too much alcohol. In general, watching intoxicated people is funny, and so is writing about them.
What came first, the characters or the concept for the story?
The first was the most important character – the setting. In RBTY, the community plays a large role in the novel. Having grown up here, I know it intimately and I can tell you that it’s a living, breathing character that inspired the people and the events that I wrote about.
