Welcome to my blog. Please tell us about your novella: What Happens at the Airport.
It’s about a woman who’s down on her luck with men. She’s gone through one thing after another with them and she’s downright fed up! Just when she thinks she’s through trying to find love, she finds herself seated next to quite the handsome stranger on an airplane. The only catch is he isn’t what he seems. And when I say that, I mean it more for the reader than for her! You’ll have to read it to find out what I mean…
Where did you get your inspiration for this story?
I’ve seen people meet and fall in love on planes in the movies and on TV, but I can’t say that I’ve ever even spoken to someone on a plane, other than family I was flying with. I’ve sat next to strangers myself and I liked the idea of two people, flying alone, starting up a conversation. Usually in TVs and movies, those conversations go well. In this story, things go all wrong!
Did you have to do any research for this book?
I’ve flown on planes and sat next to stranger. I spilled a Sprite in the purse of a woman who sat next to me. J Otherwise, I write as it comes and don’t think too deeply into it research-wise!
Tell me about one of the main characters and what you love about him or her?
I like Wes, the under-cover air marshall. He knows what he wants and he goes for it. He’s a strong person because his job demands it and he’s noble in the meantime.
Where is your website and blog so my readers can check out your recent and past books that you have written?
That should be enough information for you!
I’d like to mention that I have a lot coming up this year! In June, I’ll re-release Wrong Place, Right Time so you can watch for that. I have a huge release coming in September as well called “The Leftover.” I’m over the moon excited for this book to come out!!! Check out my facebook, twitter, blog etc and I’ll have details coming soon!
Thank you for this interview, Brooke. I have read this short story and here is my review below. For those who would like to buy this ebook, here is the link: http://amzn.to/2nCrDzr
“This story is about a young woman who mistakenly thinks that because a man is handsome and has the build of a bodybuilder, he must be the perfect guy. Not so! When she sits next to a dreamy looking hunk, she very soon realizes that he isn’t what he seems to be. He is very annoying and quite the pervert. All looks and no brains! Not far into the story, she realizes what a mistake it is to encourage him. Actually, her heart belongs to someone else. This short story reminds us to not make such quick judgments of others.”
