Hi everyone! Today I will be sharing some information about the Romantic Times Teen Day (which is THIS SATURDAY in the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas), plus showing you an exclusive interview with one of the attending authors, Danielle Paige!
What are you looking forward to at Romantic Times?
Seeing so many author friends and meeting readers who unabashedly love romance. I got my start in soap operas (writing for CBS’ Guiding Light) so writing romance is literally my first love.
Which author that you haven’t met are you looking forward to meeting next at Romantic Times?
Wendy Higgins! I adore her books and we have been Twitter friends for years! Cecelia Ahern! because I am such a fan girl.
What’s your favorite romance story?
Impossible. I adore everyone from Jennifer Armentrout to Danielle Steele! And I am currently in love with Kami Garcia’s new one, The Lovely Reckless. My all time fav would be Wuthering Heights, I know It predates the genre but Heathcliff and Catherine’s tortured love story just set the romance bar for me. And I have a soft spot for for Julie Devraux’s Knight in Shining Armor.
Romantic Times is in Las Vegas this year – tell us which one of your characters and from which book would win big in Vegas? What advice would you give that character?
Dorothy. My Dorothy is a little, okay, a lot more shrewd that Baum’s original. And a lot more dangerous! So I think she would kill in Vegas. And if she does not clean up at the crap tables, she might literally kill! Also her shoes are perfect for Vegas!
What is up next for you?
Stealing Snow, out in September. It’s really dark and romantic Snow Queen retelling. Think teenage Frozen. And Snow isn’t caught in the standard love triangle. Rather, there are at least three potential loves for Snow!
