Spotlighting our Boas & Tiaras Authors
As we speed closer and closer to Boas & Tiaras (click here to buy your ticket) we decided to give you more insight into our attending authors. We’ll highlight one author in each newsletter with five quick questions.
C.A. Szarek has some cool facts to share with you.
Pitch us your newest book in one sentence.
Small Town Texas doesn’t always mean small time crime.
What book made you fall in love with the genre(s) you write?
I write different genres, so I’m not sure. I guess each of my characters draws me in their own ways. When they “introduce” themselves to me, I generally have to get to know them as if they were a real person, which can be as frustrating as it is fun. I like to write real people who are very real to the reader.
Tell us about your favorite character you’ve ever written.
I can’t pick one. That’s like picking your fave kid. I can say they each speak to me differently and when I’m writing the book, I usually fall for the hero before the book is over, and hope my readers do, too.
What do you do to de-stress when you’re on a writing deadline?
Watch TV or read something that is NOT in the same genre I’m currently writing. But TV usually helps. I watch WAY too much TV.
What’s one thing you want our Boas & Tiaras guests to know about you?
I am pretty awesome, and excited to hang out with everyone!
