Blog Tour: Day 6

UPDATE

Looks like the interview for yesterday was never posted. But I have it right here if you’d like to take a gander at it!

1. Polly is such a charming character! What inspired her voice?

Thank you! Polly’s voice was inspired by two main things. The first being my love for Anne Shirley who, I am convinced, is one of the best characters ever written in all of literature…Polly obviously thinks so too. And her voice was also inspired by my daughter’s friend who is completely dramatic, totally hilarious, and 100% overly-imaginative.

2. Have you ever had any matchmaking disasters?

Thankfully not! And I would never consider matchmaking for anyone I know…though…perhaps I would for animals since they don’t have very many, if any, requirements for a mate.

3. What inspired the bakery aspect of Scones and Sensibility?

I adore food. I love eating it, baking it, cooking it, and smelling it! And I think it’s also very universal and extremely romantic…unless of course it’s refried beans which I just can’t seem enjoy no matter how many times I try.

4. Anne and Gilbert and Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are Polly’s favourite literary couples. Who are yours?

The one’s you mentioned are definitely my favorites, though I’d also have to add: Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester…excuse me while I swoon.

5. What’s your favourite pastry?

Nothing can compare to chocolate éclairs

6. Have you read any good YA romance novels recently?

Yes, I loved the love story in The Dark Divine by Bree Despain, Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken, and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

7. Do you have any new writing projects on the go?

I do! My second contracted book with Egmont is currently titled A Teaspoon of Rosemary. Though it is also a contemporary middle grade novel, it is very different than Scones and Sensibility. It is the story of a young shy, introverted girl who learns to embrace her inner strength and confidence while becoming a wonderful young chef.

Hope you enjoyed the interview!! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi, I just bought your book recently and I love the descriptive writing and the over dramatic main character. I love books like that and infact I want to become an author one day too. Do you have any advice? And your website is pretty cool.
