How did you decide on your books Title?
Couple Friends has always been the title even before the screenplay or book existed. It’s what the book is about, but it’s also a term that has become more popular in recent years and is sort of an obsession of the main frenemy. Yet, I feel like couple friendships—which are really valued, important, and potentially complicated relationships—really hasn’t been examined quite this way yet.
What has writing made you learn about yourself?
I’ve learned that this is what I want to do, forever. Not just write books, but write any and everything. I honestly love researching, writing profiles and articles, posting on my blogs, Facebook, and Twitter…I was born for this, and I’m so glad I took the (very scary!) leap to this profession. I actually have a “dream box” full of 3 X 5 notecards, each with a different book idea. There are at least 50 full-length novels or screenplay ideas in there!
If I asked you to include the phrase ‘A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.’ Somewhere in your next book, would you?
Only if my next book is YA or has a teen in it!
Would you consider yourself adventurous?
