Today we’re welcoming author Suzanne Lilly for an interview…
First off, let me just say these questions are the most fun I’ve had in an interview yet! Okay, now I’ll dive in and tell you my answers.
If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
The power to make people’s dreams come true. So you want to drive a Mercedes? Zap! You’ve got it. World peace? Zap! No problem. If I could make dreams come true, maybe the world would be a happier place.
In one sentence only, tell us why we should read your book.
If you found sunglasses that tell the future, wouldn’t you want to try them on?
Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
Untellable is coming out in February 2013. It also takes place in Honey Creek, Ohio, where Aspen Dwyer has run away to hide from her father who is a murderer. While she’s in Honey Creek, she meets the man of her dreams, Colton Moraine. He’s kind, strong, thoughtful, and good looking, and he doesn’t know anything about her past, which is just how Aspen likes things. But when her father gets out of prison and shows up looking for her in Honey Creek, all bets are off.
Everyone has a guilty pleasure – what TV show do you watch that you’d be embarrassed to admit?
I’m still watching Survivor. Can you believe it? I can’t seem to give it up. If Big Brother ever comes back on for another season, I’ll be watching that, too.
The one book I wish I’d written is….
Chocolat. The words are magic, the story is magic, and in the movie, Johnny Depp is, as always, magic.
How do you like to spend a rainy day?
Curled up on the couch with fluffy pillows, a soft blanket, a warm fire, and a fantastic book. I’ll need some hot chocolate, too.
What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
People always seem surprised to find out I took Tae-Kwon-Do. When I tell them, they just back away, real slow.
Where have you been on your travels that you loved?
I love seeing new places! I loved going on an Alaskan cruise, and this past year I went to Rome. I heart Roma.
What are your favourite sweets?
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I hope they have those in heaven.
Any Pet Peeves?
People who say li-beary instead of li-brary. There’s an r after the b, people.
Social networking…Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter all the way! My phone cheeps when I get a tweet from my friends.
Print or Ebook?
Both! I adore my Kindle, but I like a paperback when I’m at the pool or the beach.
Thanks for joining us today for an interview!
Thanks so much for having me on your blog today! Before I go, here’s a little bit about my newest book, Shades of the Future.
What would you give to see the future? Would you make your dreams come true? Would you change the things you didn’t like?
Mariah Davis loves animals, running, and her hunk of a boyfriend, Kevin Creamer. Everything looks bright for her until the day she finds a pair of sunglasses that allow her to see the future.
When she glimpses a disaster looming, she tries to avoid it but fails. She has a car accident that lands her in a wheelchair, smashing her hopes for a running scholarship to the veterinary program at Ohio State University. She pushes Kevin away, thinking he’ll want to end their relationship now that she can’t walk.
Will she ever learn to trust and love again? She could search for an answer in the sunglasses. But she’s afraid what they reveal might destroy her.
I’m on blog tours during the month of July, celebrating with a giveaway of a pair of designer sunglasses to one lucky commenter. I’ll be posting the schedule with dates and blogs on my author website, http://www.suzannelilly.com, and my TeacherWriter blog, http://www.teacherwriter.net. Follow me and comment each day to increase your chances of winning!
