Interview with author Rhonda Laurel
Welcome Rhonda, it's a pleasure to have you here! Congratulations on your newest release, For The Love of the Game!!
This quarterback is making the greatest play of his life…
Quiet bookstore owner Morgan Reed can’t wait to lie on the beach on her much-needed tropical vacation, but getting tackled by a tall, green-eyed stranger playing touch football isn’t exactly what she had in mind. Neither is falling for said stranger, or going along with the eccentric islander who sends them off with a mock wedding. But all’s fair when it comes to vacation romance, and Morgan has plenty of time to get back to reality when she gets home.
When he slams into the beautiful Morgan on the beach and sends her to the infirmary, superstar quarterback Seth Blake insists on helping her recover—if she agrees to share his bungalow with him. Seth is nothing less than smitten, and the best part is that the beauty has no idea who he is.
But when he finds out that their little “wedding” was the real thing, Seth finds himself in a sticky situation. Especially when Morgan finds out the man she fell for isn’t at all who he made himself out to be…
Q & A With the Author:
I am from New Jersey and still reside in the Garden State.
What genres do you write?
I write contemporary romance.
Why did you choose these genres?
I write contemporary romance because I have always been fascinated with human behavior.I like writing about two people who have to look within themselves and evaluate if they are capable of giving love when the offer of love is staring them in the face.
Where do you do most of your writing?
I write wherever the inspiration hits me.I jot down notes on my cell phone when I’m out and about.But do most of my writing in quiet places around the house.
Is there any special indulgence you allow yourself while you are writing?
I love to listen to music, so when I write I listen to songs and create a soundtrack for the story.
What is your favorite memory from your childhood?
I always loved summers.
What are some of your favorite books?
I don’t have a favorite book but I do love to read books with a unique viewpoint like, writing an entire novel based on one day in a person’s life.I think it’s amazing that authors can do that.
What inspired you to write your first book?
I’ve always had a vivid imagination and one day I decided to bring that inner world in my head to life.My first short story was written because I was bored in college and needed something to pass the time.
What do you find most challenging about writing?
I would love to make all my stories novel length, but the fact is some plots do not require an entire novel to convey the emotions and story structure.I am happy with a novella and novel platform and also like writing short stories.
Can you share some of the projects you are currently working on?
I have a few submissions I am awaiting a response from the publisher.I am awaiting the upcoming release of my sophomore novella For the Love of the Game. I am also happily awaiting release of a third novella Shutter to be released in 2013.
