Okay, so I guess I could ask LP a bunch of Pittsburgh Penguins’ Questions, but who wants to hear that!!! (Just kidding....or am I?) Anyway.......
LP, what made you become an author?
It started accidentally, really. My anxiety was out of control and daydreams were my escape. Jake and Emily’s story came from that. When it wouldn’t get out of my head on its own, I started writing as means to do so. After that, I fell in love with writing and have been doing it ever since!
What is all-time favorite book?
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
Who is the hottest book boyfriend you’ve ever read?
Hottest? I would have to say Nix from Off Limits by Sawyer Bennett. Love me some Nix!
If you were on a desert island and had a choice between a kindle full of unlimited books or Sidney Crosby, which would you choose?
No doubt, I would choose Sidney Crosby. Me & him all alone on a deserted island? There would be a 50/50 chance that we would get along, right? Of course, I would have to take that chance/opportunity! Plus, a kindle would eventually die and I doubt the island has an plugs. See? I thought ahead!
Okay, okay let’s ask about those darn Penguins. Who is your favorite player and why?
I have two favorites because I can’t possibly choose between them. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin because they are both awesome. Just watch them play and you’ll see.
Why the Penguins and have you ever liked another team before?
Okay, so don’t judge me after you hear my story. The BFF introduced me to hockey and I became a Hurricanes fan by association. Justin Williams was my favorite and I was pissed when he got traded. I realized that if I was going to be a true hockey fan, I needed to find a team where I liked a lot of the players and one I could be loyal to no matter what. I began my search, stumbled upon Sidney Crosby and the Penguins, and fell in love. It was like a match made in heaven, especially since penguins are one of my favorite animals. Been a fan ever since! This year, it’s gotten really serious. BFF says I’m obsessed. Haha!
Are you a Kindle girl or would you rather have a physical book in hand?
Darn technology! I’m a Kindle girl, but I still love my paperbacks. However, I've gotten where I only want the paperback if I really loved it.
What is the one thing that has surprised you about co-author with me? For me, it’s how easy our ideas flowed and we always listened to each other’s suggestions.
I was mostly surprised by how creepy we are with our thoughts. I would ask a question and while I was typing my answer, you were too, and BAM! They were almost identical. The fact that we think so alike really surprised me...and creeped me out, as evident by the song I have deemed our theme song. Creepin’ by Eric Church. Another thing that surprised me was the scale of your awesomeness. I knew you were awesome beforehand, but working with you and talking to you almost every day had your awesomeness blowing me away!
What are you most excited about for Book 1: Breakaway that you want everyone to know?
Levi. Watch out, ladies. Levi Carr stole our hearts and we’re sure he’s going to steal yours as well. There’s more than meets the eye with him. Out of all the characters I’ve written, he’s my favorite.
Now rumor has it that you may like a certain Blackhawks player *cough* Patrick Sharp *cough* is that because of all the brainwashing I’ve been doing to you? Should I purchase your first Blackhawks jersey for you? *wink*
I was waiting on this question. I won't confirm nor deny the rumor. What I will say is that if I happen to like Patrick Sharp, it would be because of all your brainwashing, Mary. If you felt inclined to buy something based whether I may like him, a jersey isn't necessary. If the rumor is true, though, a t-shirt would be just fine. ;)
