Ahhh Pirates! Whoops I Mean Authors Q&A from Once Upon A True Loves Kiss

Ahoy, Lady Melody and FANs of What I’m Reading!

The authors of Once Upon a True Love’s Kiss are happy to be here on our release day! Huzzah and Hoorah! And to help get this party started, we thought you’d like to know a bit more about us and the books we’ve included in our box set just for you.

First up in our Q&A is USA TODAY Bestselling Author Julie Johnstone. Julie, if you could live anywhere in the world besides where you now reside, where would it be?

Julie: Scotland.

Katherine Bone, if you had a time machine, where would you go? Would you live there or just visit for a while?

Katherine: Do I have to narrow it down to one choice? (Pirate!) There is so much I’d like to see and do, me hearties! I’d listen to the deafening cannons at Trafalgar in late 1805 or ride with Lapenotiere in a post-chaise barreling to London with Collingwood’s dispatch after Nelson’s death. Afterward, I’d attend Nelson’s epic funeral. Morbid? Maybe a tad so but the research I’ve done for my Nelson’s Tea Series makes me want to experience all of these things firsthand.

Collette Cameron, do you have any favorite TV shows?

Collette: I watch very little TV, but  I’m a huge fan of BBC.  My favorite shows include The Musketeers, Outlander, The Last Kingdom, and Poldark.

Gee, you can’t tell I’m a fan of historical romances.

Jillian Chantal, do you have any phobias?

Jillian: I am completely claustrophobic. It has gotten worse with age. The terrible thing is, in my mind I know it’s silly and nonsensical but I still have that moment of utter panic when I’m in a tight spot 

Samantha Grace, do you have a “day job” other than writing?

Samantha: I’ve been a master’s level social worker for the last twenty-one years, and I started writing as a way to relax. It didn’t take me long to fall in love with writing historical romance, and the romance community has been so fun. One thing I appreciate about social work is the different options I have. I’ve worked with at-risk children and adolescents as a case manager. I worked in an inpatient psychiatric facility. I was a hospice social worker for eleven years, and now I work in dialysis. Sometimes I dream of becoming a full time author, but if the opportunity were present, I don’t know if I would take it. I really love working with patients and their families.   

Alanna Lucas, you are forced to live on a desert island for six months. Food and bare survival equipment will be provided but that is all. You can take one person and five items to relieve the boredom and enhance the experience. Who is the person and what are the items? Why?

Alanna: I would take my husband. I don’t think I would get bored with just him, but here are my five items: iPad (loaded with books and all episodes of Top Gear UK), battery backup for iPad, chocolate (should be included in the bare survival though), wine, and a gourmet kitchen (this was hubby’s input).

Lauren Smith, what is the weirdest food you have ever eaten?

Lauren: Bull testicles on a stick in a place called Stick Street in China.

Victoria Vane, give us five words that best describe your author brand.

Victoria: How about three - Smart, Sexy, Evocative.
