Well here goes. Ten Interview Questions for the Next Big Thing:

What is your working title of your book? Lord Merton’s Unsuitable Bride

Where did the idea come from for the book? This is the second in a series. Lord Merton was introduced in the first book as a minor character. He was such a prig, I almost didn’t do anything with him, but one of my CP’s disagreed. Then the idea of Miss Dorothea Stern came to me. She’s a squire’s daughter and very much of a forward thinking young lady. Exactly the right foil for Merton

What genre does your book fall under? Regency

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? I’m so embarrassed to admit that I hardly ever watch movies. Maybe Judi Dench when she was 18 for Miss Stern and a much younger Roger Moore for Merton.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? The Marquis of Merton, the stuffiest young man in the ton, meets the only woman who can turn his world upside down.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? I’m represented by an agency.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? About six weeks with major interruptions. I didn’t get any writing done for about two of those weeks, and I was finishing the edits for another book.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? I’m thinking hard here, but I can’t think of one.

Who or what inspired you to write this book? My CP, the fabulous author, Lauren Smith

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? It’s very funny, and it has kids and animals.
