Your favorite character in the book and why.
Alexandria Paige Moore.
Andria is a smart, successful woman. She shows vulnerability, yet her character grows stronger with each book.
Please describe him/her/they a) physically b) their personality
Andria has naturally long curly reddish brown hair. She is of standard height, has a slim build and an ample butt. She has beautiful wide[jw2] blue eyes. She has a witty personality as well as being honest and direct. She cares about people and is a very humble person.
Could I have a couple of quotes from your book of dialogue that shows that personality?
His face turned red. “You have really turned into a little bitch, haven’t you, Andria?”
“This bitch would have put your ass in jail a long time ago.”
He stepped closer. “Maybe that dirty little mouth needs a real man to shut it up.”
“Frank, if you don’t back the hell away from me, you will find yourself on your knees, writhing in pain from your balls relocated inside your groin.”
He stepped back.
He led us to the open window, and I looked out into the distance. The frosted chill of the glass stung my bare nipples as he pressed me against the floor to ceiling windowpane. “Andrew…” I breathed out.
“How do you turn the passion on and off just like that?” I asked.
“It’s called acting,” my husband said, matter-of-factly.
“Just how much of that is really acting?” I paused and then turned around and snarled at him. “So, you’re telling me that when you’re kissing another woman or fake humping her, your body feels nothing?”
What genre would you say the book falls into?
Contemporary Romance / Women’s Romance
Are there any trigger warnings and/or explicit content I should know about?
No trigger warnings, but there are plenty of lemony sex scenes and adult content.
Do you have any upcoming events?
I am scheduled for several book signings in 2017. They will be posted once confirmed on my website http://www.znwillett.com
What is next for you? Anything in the works?
Acquired Asset, my new contemporary romance novel will be released this fall 2016.
Any special mentions? (Editor, cover art etc…)
I have an incredible team of individuals who I could not live without.
Donna Wolosin, my Editor
Jada D’Lee Designs, my Cover Designer
Erica Wade, my sounding board
If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be? Please describe the place rather than just a name. The weather, the time of day, the ground, the surroundings, foliage, etc…
I travel for my job, and to pick only one place is difficult. Yet, I would have to say Cannes/ French Rivera. Cannes is one of my favorite places in the off season in September. Perfectly warm ocean breezes during the day, and cool crisp ones in the evenings. An array of fresh baked bread and incredible sweet aromas linger in the air. The fall foliage in September isn’t at its full potential, but the flowers from the open air market display a wide range of vibrant colors.
If the character from above were in that place what would they be doing?
My character loved Paris, and the first place she would go to in Cannes would be a small independently owned bookstore where she could get lost for hours. She would make sure to visit the farmer’s market; tasting and purchasing goods as she strolled along the aisles. Fresh lavender is a must, along with a great bottle of wine.
If your character was allowed one chance to say anything to your readers, what would he/she say?
She would say thank you for investing your time with this series. Thank you all around for supporting the books and sharing [jw4] your reviews.
If your character could donate to any charity, which one would he/she choose?
Andria would focus on literacy foundations. One specifically is Room to Read.
Room to Read is a non-profit organization that collaborates with local communities and governments in developing countries. Room to Read focuses on literacy and gender equality in education.
Advice for your fellow authors?
Continue to write for the love of it. When you face those writer blocks, and you will, take some time to do something else that you enjoy, and then come back to it. Those blocks will eventually go away and when they do, get back to writing!
