But please also check out her BLOG and you can find out a little more about Lisa HERE.
TAS: Let's get the plug out of the way. Tell us a little bit about the project you are currently promoting - who will be interested and why?
Josie's Thorn is about a young woman who returns to her family's ranch only to find danger to her as she fights against unknown enemies to save the ranch, and against her old boyfriend from stealing her heart away again.(Women who love a tender, passionate romance story)
TAS: What aspects of being an author do you most enjoy?
LV: I enjoy the looks from people that I get when I tell them I'm a writer, and an author of three books. I enjoy making up stories about all kinds of wonderful people and places I've created out of my own mind.
TAS: What aspects of being an author do you least enjoy?
LV: Formatting, marketing, I wish I could write and let someone else do the hard stuff. Writing the story is by far the easiest and funnest part of this whole process.
TAS: What moment as an author have you experienced that you are likely to remember 20 years from now (good or bad)?
LV: Book signings, I hate them, don't enjoy them, had a painful experience with my first one and it left a sour taste in my mouth.
TAS: What bad habits do you have when it comes to writing/promoting your books and/or what do you wish you could do better?
LV: Having too many coals on my fire at times to the point where I find myself overwhelmed!(laughing)
TAS: Pick a character from one of your books and tell us what actor or actress you would cast and why.
LV: Matthew Kingston from Where She Belongs - Gerard Butler because they're both hot and they know it, but they're completely lovable and kind.
TAS: Do you have clear 'heroes' and 'villains' in your stories or are the lines more blurred? Why do you choose that route?
LV: In Where She Belongs, Matthew Kingston is clearly a playboy but he is the 'hero', Nick Cabara is clearly the Mafia bad boy and seen as the 'villain', but I think Nick is just misunderstood. :)
LV: I'd choose selling 1 million books because I love my stories and I just really want them to be enjoyed by others although I do want to be able to make a living out of my novel writing.
TAS: Were you smarter than your writing/literature teachers in high-school and why do you answer the way you do?
LV: No way. I was a backwards, shy, and a plain Jane in school; never had the self esteem to even try to 'be smart'.
LV: Wow, hard decision, perhaps I'd divide my day into two parts; half a day at library, and the other half at the museum. I could learn so much from either one of these places, and be motivated to write, very relaxing.
TAS: If you had Superman's powers, what do you imagine you would actually do with them?
LV: I'd definitely fly all over the world just to look at all of the wonderful skyline lights of all the famous cities of the world, that would be so romantic! Oh and look at Gerard Butler with my super power eyes:)
TAS: If you were going to be locked in a room and watch one of three shows for 24 hours solid, which would you choose: Gilligan's Island, Starsky and Hutch or the Love Boat?
