New York Times Bestselling Author Colleen Hoover!
This is very exciting for me! I’m getting to interview people who have had a great influence in my life. Colleen Hoover is the first person I actually started talking to before this crazy journey into the writing world started for me. We met at a Speedway getting a 44oz Diet Pepsi….LOL…no we didn’t, but that would have been so cool.
I first met Colleen on the Amazon KDP forum which can be a scary place…long story. Anyway, even with her great success with Slammed, Point of Retreat and her newest release Hopeless, bestselling author Colleen has stayed the same Colleen I met a little over a year ago. She is an author who cares for her fans and shows it every day. She is also one of the funniest people I know. When I told her what I wanted to do and asked for the small interview she agreed with no hesitation and she is one busy chick. So now I get the privilege to ask her anything I want.
I know how awesome her books are and so do a million others so I wanted to ask some different questions to really get to know her better. So I will shut up with my fan girl moment and ask my questions. The last question is actually from a fan, Jodi Murphy.
So here we go. First of all, thank you Colleen for coming by and answering my nosey questions.
Other than reading or writing what do you like to do with your free time? Considering I would be reading or writing in my free time if it weren’t my job now, I’m not sure. It’s almost all I do anymore. I do have three boys, so when I’m not working I’m usually at one of their sporting events or doing something with them.
If you could meet one person who would you choose? Of course I want to say an Avett brother, but I’m not really sure I actually want to meet them in person. I like the image I have of them in my head. I would like to meet that crazy amazing Teresa Gabelman. I hear she’s pretty awesome. (ahhhh… It will happen! Come to Bethel Colleen Hoover…..Beetheeel….we even have a library here….Beetheeel. Look into me eyeballs. One day I will get that hypnotizing thing down. HA!)
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I hope to heck that I can sustain this career long enough to be doing exactly what I’ve done the last 12 months…pretend to be working when I’m really just writing.
One thing you would like your fans to know about you? I’ve reached a milestone with my pig, Hazel. She actually let me pet her yesterday. It was fleeting, but it was a step in the right direction.
Jodi Murphy, who is a fan, would like to know out of Slammed, Point of Retreat and Hopeless who is your favorite character? That’s a tough one. It’s like asking which child is your favorite, and to be honest, it depends on the day and the situation. Sometimes I’m in the mood for Holder…sometimes I want to read Will’s poetry and sometimes it’s Lake or Sky or one of the kids. I miss certain scenes and dialogue at different times, so I’ll find myself missing different things about each of the books.
I know how busy Colleen is and would like to thank her again for stopping by and answering a few questions. I’m posting her links at the bottom. If you haven’t read her books yet you are definitely missing out!
