Was it fate that I hit up the fabulous Elizabeth Seckman for an interview? I don't know. But it probably was fate that I found her in the blogosphere around a year ago, fell in love with her fun, zany personality, bought and read her first book, and fell in love with it... and the next one after that! I just can't get enough of her! So, in honor of her latest novel, Fate Intended, I invited her over for a short Q&A.
Hello my favorite lady!
ME?! THE fave? Not A fave? I am so flattered...note to self...must send Leigh chocolate.
Are you ready to answer some questions?
My lawyer says yes.
I'll keep them fun and simple! Short and sweet! It’s the best way to go!
So... I frequently get weird thoughts in my head (I'm a writer, so it's acceptable, right? Totally!!) and these thoughts have turned into your first question!
If you could be on any tv show (should I call it a talk show?) which one would it be and why? (So like Oprah, Ellen, Conan... I dunno!) And... who else would be on the show with you that day, and why? (Ahem, you can't choose Gerard Butler, cause he's my choice.)
Ellen would be the best place to reach my target audience (chicks!), but I can't help but want to go "Between the Ferns" with Zach Galifianakis. You know how some people want to challenge themselves by climbing a mountain? Surviving an interview with that crazy man would be my Mt. Everest.
And, I want to share my seat with Thor. And no I don't mean Chris Hemsworth as himself...he has to be Thor...hammer and all.
Okay - I'm a little embarrassed to admit I had to google Zach Galifianakis and "Between the Ferns". And yes, I do know who he is, I'm just terrible with names. Never seen the show though, so I watched a clip of him and President Obama and you are indeed right - you would definitely be climbing a mountain! It would be nice a good idea to have Thor by your side to survive him! They should give people trophies for those interviews. LOL. As for me... I would stick with Ellen, who would totally be my first choice anyway because I just love everything about her and the only thing I'd have to worry about would be somebody jumping out to scare me.
I've never watched Ellen. Can you believe that? But she does seem sweet and more of her viewers would be my kind of readers!
Yes, that would be a great show for your readers, but that Galifianakis guy would get you’re a trophy! *cheers* But let's move on!
You've survived the Zach Galifianakis interview and received your trophy... what's next? What are three goals on your bucket list?
1. Meet all my bloggy friends. Wouldn't it be cool to have a big conference and everyone attend?
2. Travel the US and then the world. I want to see everything.
3. Organize my house. I want closets that look like I am OCD.
I AM OCD and my closets still don't look that way! It's a curse! I absolutely love your bucket list. We must have been related in a different life! And I completely agree about a conference that we were ALL at! That would be the BEST!
But one more thing before I let you go...
Can you give a little hint about your current WIP?
I'm working on a few things. I'm working on another contemporary adult story, having some fun adding in some gal pal delivered street justice; an NA novel addressing Tanner Coulter's happily ever after; and I am working with Tammy Theriault on a YA collaboration, which I have NEVER done a YA, so it's a learning experience!
AH! So many great things coming from you in the future! I look forward to it all, and I know you will be marvelous at YA too! Thank you so much for coming by and sharing all this awesomeness with us! AND… congrats on your latest release, Fate Intended!
Thanks Leigh! You totally, seriously rock and I love you bunches. You always bring a smile to my face and a glow to my heart! If the world was filled with people as awesome as you, it's be like Disney Land every day with free pass coupons.
And in honor of our lady crushes... here's a little sneak peek from me and Elizabeth's double date with Thor and Gerard. We make the cutest couples, don't you think? Shhhh - don't tell our husbands!
|I think it was fate that we met these fabulous men! Ooh-la-la! If only Gerard knew what a cute couple we make!|
Blurb for Fate Intended:
Trip is the last of the Coulter sons to find love. He’s smart…he’s handsome…he’s a shadow op. He’s a man with all the skills a spy needs. But when it comes to relationships, he misses the target. Jane is sweet…she’s beautiful…she’s a cleaning lady. She’s a woman with all the skills a lady needs to sweep a man’s heart right into her hands. She may be wanted for murder, but she has her sights set on Trip. Trip sees her every day, but he never really sees her at all until fate and his bitchy girlfriend bring them together. Nothing about Olivia is average. Not her looks, her body, nor her obnoxiousness. When Olivia turns her full fury on Jane, it’s Trip to the emotional rescue. For him, it’s an opportunity to make amends. For Jane, it’s an opportunity to make dreams come true…to make reality as it was intended to be.
And, Elizabeth, thanks again for being such a good sport and sharing with us today! YOU ROCK, woman!
And... if YOU could be on a talk show, which one would you want to be on? Who would be on the show with you that day?
