Welcome to a new feature on the blog: Locke Loves.
This series will be a fun way for you to be introduced to new, talented authors in romance. This week, I have Scarlett Avery answering questions, sharing pictures, and giving us a little insight to her life.
Are you ready?
Grab a drink and let’s meet Scarlett.
|Getting to Know You:
|1. In five words, tell me about yourself. Sassy and passionate romance writer!
|2. What is your favorite movie of all time? Action? The Jason Bourne Trilogy. Romance? The Thomas Crown Affair
|3. Give me one song that you hear and think, “So me!” Music is a mood thing for me. What’s “So me!” today might not be tomorrow. Same for genre. I can swing from heavy metal, to old school rap, to classical, to pop, to house music depending on what I’m doing and my mood.
|4. You can invite 5 people for a sleepover, who are they? Sierra Simone, Christina Lauren, Laurelin Paige, Adrianna Locke and Lauren Landish. Basically successful authors I admire for a sleepover where we chat about books, hot men, our inspirations, our challenges and our triumphs. And yes I do realize I’m cheating with Christina Lauren since there are two of them 😉 Good food. Good wine. Good company. What more can a romance author asks for?
|5. You’re exhausted, dying of hunger, and have five chapters left in a book. Which do you take care of first? I grab a quick bite and a drink to fuel my body so I can finish the five chapters. It will also provide me with the short break I need to boost my energy to keep keeping on.
|6. Someone gives you a tiger. You cannot give it back. What are you going to do with it? Since I live in the Great North (aka Canada) and it’s winter 5-6 months out of the year, I guess my tiny tiger will have to sit/nap/sleep at my feet as I write! In the summer tiny tiger and I will go for long walks.
|7. Who should everyone be following right now? Would it be too presumptuous to say, me? 😉
|8. I’m coming over for dinner. What are you making me? Come with an appetite! We’ll start with a cheese plate or charcuterie plate. Then we move to a plate of grilled shrimp. Then it’s the roasted chicken stuffed with 40 cloves of garlic served with roasted fingerling potatoes and a nice hearty sauce. I’d serve an assortment of roasted veggies as well. We close the meal with a beautiful salad and homemade vinaigrette. Since I can’t bake to save my life, I’d buy a French fruit tart of some sort, or cake or my fave, ice cream and gelato.
|9. What would be the title of your autobiography? “When life gives you lemon, you make French lemon tart.” I could’ve said lemon juice, but the tart is a notch above that. If you’re going to aim, might as well aim high!
|10. What page do you visit every single day? Other than FB, it’s Pinterest. I’m a Pinterest addict!
I drink my British tea from this in the morning during the winter.
|1. If I pick a random book by you, what am I going to get? Use only five words. Our Dirty Little Princess
|2. What always works its way into your work? Why do you think that is? High heels for my girls since I can’t walk in them. Sleek suits for my alphas. Food. Wine.
|3. What do you like writing more: heroes or heroines? Both.
|4. What is your favorite book (written by you)? Our Dirty Little Princess – it really showcases my growth as an author.
|5. What is your favorite book (not written by you)? I can’t answer that question. It’s like asking me to choose my favourite child. There are too many amazing books I’ve read in my life that I have loved (and still love) so much to pick just one.
My current new obsession. I used to buy bright pink orchids, but the white are spectacular.
When two hotter-than-hell former American Navy SEALs turned billionaire hunks land in London, they never expected to inadvertently rescue a stranger who would quickly turn into an obsession. Just when they’re convinced they’ll never meet her again, she shows up in the most unexpected of places. What do you do when you find out that you and your best friend are completely smitten with a woman who is far too young and far too innocent… and who happens to be Britain’s Prime Minister’s daughter?
