As part of our countdown to Readers & ‘ritas 2018, our Meet the Author interviews help you get to know the authors joining us in Texas on November 9-11. Read on to get acquainted with USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas, and purchase your ticket to meet her in person at Readers & ‘ritas!
Pitch us your newest book in one sentence.
In THE HOLLOW OF FEAR, when the man she loves is accused of murder, Charlotte Holmes, Lady Sherlock, goes undercover to learn the truth.
If you could meet one of your characters in real life, who would you choose and what would you do?
Most definitely Iolanthe Seabourne, the powerful elemental mage from the Elemental trilogy, my YA fantasy. And I would ask her to please bring down a thunderbolt, while summoning all the other four elements, too!
What gets your creative juices flowing when you’re brainstorming a new story?
Alas, nothing. My ideas come very slowly and usually at the cost of a lot of words thrown away.
Which part of Readers & ‘ritas are you most excited about?
Brownies? I become a dessert fiend when I leave my house, and conference lunches often have brownies. 😀 And meeting readers, of course, that goes without saying.
We’re all romantics here, so we need to know—what is your all-time favorite love story?
I have trouble naming favorites. I can tell you that this summer I really enjoyed Meteor Garden on Netflix—love how the hero loves the heroine, without doubt, hesitation, or any regrets whatsoever. When his family tries to force him to marry someone else for dynastic reasons, he goes on a hunger strike so he could be with her!
