I can't begin to tell you what a blessing it's been to work with the wonderful authors involved in the Fall Into Romance collection. I'm going to be chatting with one of these amazing people each week leading up to the release of Fall Into Romance. I hope you enjoy these interviews as much as I have!
Chatting with Franky A. Brown
Author of Wired for Romance
Welcome, Franky! I'm excited to have you on my blog so you can share more about Wired for Romance. I loved the story, and I know everyone else will, too!
Me: 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? (This can be a place in your novella, or one in someone else’s)
Franky: I would love to visit Blown Away, because I love blown glass art.
Me: 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.
Franky: My story, Wired for Romance features a lovable basset hound named Toby. He’s an older dog my heroine, Audrey, adopts because he melts her heart. He naps a lot, tends to moan when he wants something, and sometimes sits down and won’t move in the middle of a walk. But Toby has some secretly stored energy for mischief and he’s ready to defend his home. He is modeled after my 12-year-old basset hound, Samantha.
Me: Which of the characters in your story do you relate to the most? Why is that?
Franky: Audrey. I also melt at the sad look of a basset hound’s droopy, brown eyes.
Me: Which season of the year do you look forward to the most?
Franky: I love fall when the weather cools down and it’s time to plant my favorite flower, the pansy.
Me: What state do you live in? What’s the weather like there in the fall?
Franky: I live in Alabama. In the fall, the brutal summer heat subsides and it cools down, but that doesn’t mean we don’t go back and forth from temperatures in the eighties/nineties then down to 70 the next day. One day it is a nice comfy temp, the next day it’s chilly, then the next day may be hot again and bring severe weather. What we can count on is unpredictable weather, but the heat indexes in the hundreds is over.
Me: 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?
Franky: There are so many delicious pumpkin treats. I love pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin cake. My favorite is a recipe called Pumpkin Pie Cake. It’s a pumpkin pie filling on the bottom with a butter/pecan/cake mix topping.
Franky A. Brown has always called the South home and loves to write about it. She holds an English degree from the University of South Carolina and can't seem to stop reading. She is the author of chick lit and romantic comedy that's as sweet as the chocolate that fuels her writing.
