Get to know Stacy a tiny bit better from this author interview:
1. What inspired you to write this book?
When I started writing the first book The Princess Sisters, I got about halfway through and realized I was trying to put way too much into one book. So rather than end up with a 700 page book, I decided I needed to break it up and write a trilogy. My characters just have a lot to say!
2. Who is your favorite fairytale character?
My favorite fairy tale character is Rapunzel. I don't know why, but I've always been fascinated with her story! And no matter which version you read, she is strong and ends up saving the prince in the end. No helpless, little princess here! You definitely don't want to mess with a person who can hold up a 200 pound prince with her hair.
3. Do you have any irrational fears?
I am crazy afraid of spiders. Like, I scream whenever I see one. I've even called a neighbor to come kill one for me when my husband wasn't home. Grant it, the thing was a freaking Buick with eight legs, but still. Whenever I do get the courage to kill one myself, usually to protect my children from their evilness, I then have this irrational fear the rest of the day that its family is after me. Someday the species is going to come together to form an army and attack. I just know it!
4. Are there any books you love so much you've reread them over and over?
Honestly, no. I love books and I love to read! But I always have too many new books I want to read that I've never gone back to revisit old favorites.
5. Favorite book to movie adaptation?
The Hunger Games. I know movies are never as good as the books, but I came out of that movie feeling completely satisfied with their adaptation.
6. What is a quote you find inspiring?
"You're only as happy in life as you make up your mind to be" --Lucille Ball.
7. Are there any fictional characters that you've fallen for?
There are plenty that I have loved for the heroine of the book. But I've got a pretty great guy at home, so no need to fall for another in the fictional world.
8. When you're browsing for books, what makes you pick one book over another?
Usually a cover that jumps out at me. Either bright colors, or an interesting image. I don't really like people on the front. Then you aren't able to imagine a character for yourself. Then, of course, a synopsis that makes me need to know more.
9. Which genre would you like to live in: dystopian, paranormal, historical, fantasy, or just contemporary.
Probably fantasy. It would be really cool to swim with mermaids, fly on pegasus, and ride a unicorn. Plus the whole living in a castle and being a princess thing appeals to me too.
10. What is an interesting fact about your and/or your books?
An interesting fact about me is I'm strangely obsessed with the color pink. I have a pink streak in my hair, before I had kids I drove a hot pink Nissan Sentra, and the majority of my clothes are pink or have pink in them. I'm not even a super girly-girl either. I just enjoy pink. The brightness makes me happy! There is also pink featured on both of my book covers. The back of The Princess Sisters and the border around the title is bright pink, and the girl's lips on the Frogs & Toads cover is pink.
Reviews of both books to come!!! But first, I must say I love love love the fact that Cinderella wears combat boots...Love these book covers too, don't you?
