Q: So, what's your inspiration for "The Real Score"?
A: Celebrities always fascinate me, and best friends had always been one of the most relatable stories to people. This wasn’t my intended #romanceclass story—I had to start all over again because I wasn’t feeling the initial plot I had—and it was just something that came to me during a bus ride. Writing The Real Score was easier compared to other stories I did because it just ‘clicked.’
Q: In your personal opinion, do you think a relationship between a fan and a celebrity would work in real life?
A: Inclined to say yes (because that would be fun and look at The Hansons, who married fans!), but it would be tough and would take a lot of work from both of them. I’d think celebs would go for people in their own ‘circles’ because they would like someone who could get where they’re coming from, but who knows? :)
Q: Do you consider yourself a Fangirl?
A: Yes. But I’m not the hardcore type. I’m passionate about the subjects of my fangirling (I’d probably pick a fight or two if someone insults them and I have tons of pictures and videos of my favorite artists saved in my laptop), but put them in front of me and I won’t ask for a picture or an autograph! I’m shy, so I’d just watch them from afar.
Q: What is love for you?
A: Oh boy, this is hard! I’m tempted to make references to songs or to a popular bible verse or to the cliché responses when answering slumbooks (I just dated myself, didn’t I?). But I think love is a complicated feeling. It can make you feel all sorts of things, take you on a rollercoaster ride, and make you do things you don’t usually do, but at the end of the day, it will make everything worth it. Whether you end up getting hurt (and you learn a lesson from it) or you end up happy, it is always something worth taking a risk for.
Q: A message to your readers.
A: Thank you so much for taking a chance and reading my first book! I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I had fun making it. And I wish you would stick around because there’s still more to come! *crosses fingers and hope I didn’t just jinx it*
Aha! So we might probably be seeing (err, reading?) more of Marcus and Caitlin soon, huh? And while we wait, you should join this AWESOME GIVEAWAY first and get a chance to win AMAZING prizes!
