What’s the strangest thing you searched for on the internet for your novel?
Because the love interest needed to have a luxury car, I spent SO many hours researching different models/brands and their ridiculous add-on features, watching countless car show videos, and perusing car forums. I have zero interest in cars, so this was not only strange for me, it was torture. In my next book my love interest will just walk everywhere.
What book (or author) made you fall in love with the romance genre?
The most memorable books I’ve read are INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE (a friend in junior high let me borrow it!), FIFTY SHADES TRILOGY (I downloaded the trilogy on Kindle during pregnancy and I thought it was one long, non-traditional book with three parts that went on forever lol), and THE KISS QUOTIENT (the book is amazing and I love the author!)
What is your favourite trope? Why?
I love the tension of enemies to lovers and enjoy a fake dating story with ample mishaps and blunders. I’d love to write a combination of the two some day!
It’s the morning after, and a lover is making your main character the perfect breakfast in bed. What is it?
Jessie Kim is a Korean Tennessean, so she’d love a good southern breakfast with country ham, biscuits and gravy, hash browns, and scrambled eggs with a side of Gochujang sauce to spice it up.
What book are you reading currently?
I’m reading Alexa Martin’s new women’s fiction book, MOM JEANS AND OTHER MISTAKES. It’s so much fun! Next in my queue are advanced copies of LEASE ON LOVE by Falon Ballard and YA novel IT’S ALL IN HOW YOU FALL by Sarah Henning.
The rapid fire question – cook dinner with your mom or cook dinner with a hot stranger?
Easiest interview question ever. HOT STRANGER!!! (I hope my mom doesn’t read this)
