Chatting with Raine English

Hi, Raine! I'm so glad that you could join us today to share about your novella. It's such a fun story!
Melanie: Romance, Oregon is a beautiful place with a small-town atmosphere and big personalities. If you could visit Romance yourself, what one shop or person would you want to make sure was on your itinerary?
Raine: My first stop would have to be Finding Forever Animal Rescue, and, of course, I couldn’t leave without adopting a dog.
Melanie: Animals are a big part of the stories that make up our Fall Into Romance compilation. Tell us a little about the critter(s) in your novella.
Raine: Tank is a black mask fawn French bulldog. He becomes grumpy and unhappy when his family releases him to Finding Forever because they couldn’t deal with both a dog and a baby. However, things start to look up for Tank when Claire, Brent’s cousin and an expert on the breed, takes an interest in the Frenchie.
Melanie: Which of the characters in your story do you relate to the most? Why is that?
Raine: Definitely Claire! She’s a huge dog lover and has this incredible understanding of French bulldogs, which just happens to be my favorite breed.
Melanie: How many pets do you have? Tell us a little about them.
Raine: I have two French bulldogs. I’m sure that’s not a surprise. Bailey is a grumpy old man and was my inspiration for Tank. Dolly is the complete opposite of Bailey. She was a rescue and is as sweet as can be. The two years that she’s been a member of the family has improved Bailey’s disposition immeasurably.
Melanie: Which season of the year do you look forward to the most?
Raine: I love fall. I live in New England. Summers can be pretty muggy, so I really look forward to the cool, crisp fall air. I also love when the leaves on the trees change color. It’s just beautiful.
Melanie: Coffee, hot cocoa, or tea. Which do you prefer during the fall and winter?
Raine: Coffee! All year long.
Melanie: There are a lot of wonderful pumpkin-flavored treats at the Fall Festival in Romance. Do you like pumpkin? If so, what’s your favorite pumpkin-flavored food?
Raine: I’m addicted to Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
