Interview with the Author What was your inspiration to write the Happy Hour RomCom series? In a writing class, the teacher had us pull an adjective and a verb from a hat. I got frosted and cowboy. "What the heck am I going to do with that?" I thought, so I just wrote, "'I'll have a Frosted Cowboy, ' I said to the bartender." I wrote two pages and turned it in; my teacher loved it and wanted more. So I developed it into the story of a woman whose Plan A didn't work out when she had never even considered a Plan B. At the time, my own Plan A was failing, and I had never really considered a Plan B. My story is nothing like Laney's, but I wanted to see where her story would go. As you'll see in the book, the Frosted Cowboy cocktail plays a part in Laney's story-and I even include the recipe for it at the end!
It seems your books could fit into several genres. How would you categorize them? Laney Delaney is a lovable heroine who finds herself in ridiculous dating and work situations, so I'd categorize them as chick lit or romcoms. There's light-hearted romance and of course some sex, but I wouldn't say they're sexy romance novels; more romantic comedies. Anyone looking for love or who could use a laugh will enjoy this series!
How is Laney's story different from other chick lit? Wait, are you saying a chick lit heroine who catches her fianc� cheating on her and then loses her job and has to start over again isn't original?! I'm kidding of course. What sets Laney apart is she's sassy, yet not cool. I liked the idea of a fashion designer who was talented and creative, but not very fashionable. She's a fish out of water, but doesn't know how to jump in the pool, or even if she wants to. In business and in love, she's searching for her true passion and struggles to reconcile what she thinks she needs with what she thinks she wants.
Do you have any more books planned? Yes. I don't want to say too much because I'm a bit superstitious, but I'm in the early stages of writing a book intersecting present-day lives of people who share a past. There might be a love triangle. And a little sex. And hopefully a lot of laughter.
Thanks for reading!
