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.
Jane Porter is stepping up to the mic.
Pitch us your newest book in one sentence.
There are consequences when you help your best friend avoid a loveless marriage, especially when its ends up sabotaging your boss’s wedding.
What book made you fall in love with the genre(s) you write?
Michelle Reid’s PRICE OF A BRIDE (but also, Debbie Macomber’s early romances, and Nora Robert’s Silhouettes).
Tell us about your favorite character you’ve ever written.
I don’t have just one, but I tend to fall in love with my heroes. I really adore them, and want to date them, and I so enjoy their banter, and their charm, and masculinity and appeal. (Now that I think about it I’m terribly fond of Rory Douglas from MIRACLE ON CHANCE AVENUE)
What do you do to de-stress when you’re on a writing deadline?
Travel, read, and watch reality singing and dancing competitions. I have lots of secret weaknesses and I record my shows as they horrify my very alpha male household, and watch them late at night, preferably with a bowl of Lucky Charms.
What’s one thing you want our Boas & Tiaras guests to know about you?
That there is nothing I enjoy more then book girls. My world is filled with dudes, but there is nothing I enjoy more then reading romance, and talking about books with women who also love romance.
