Interview & Contest: Lucy Farago

Jen: Today we welcome Lucy Farago to Romancing the Book. Lucy, will you share a short bio with us?
Lucy: I’ve been a fitness instructor for 11 years and a book keeper for 22 years. I have degree in Sociology but I started writing about 9 years ago. I have always read romance novels. I was inspired to write by Karen Marie Moning and Sherrilyn Kenyon. My first novel is an unpublished paranormal historical. I wanted to try my hand at writing a contemporary and it evolved into a romantic suspense. I’m Canadian, married with 3 kids. Oh, and I hate winter.

Jen: Please tell us about your newest release and where the idea came from.
Lucy: Sin and the Millionaire is a novella, between book one and book two.
I try and put characters in my books that could potentially have their own story. I had already mapped out book 2 and 3, so I needed a character from book 1, Sin on the Strip.

Lizzy is the Canadian caterer in that story. And for years I’ve said I wanted to write about a sexy nerd hero like the guys from CSI. And those guys often find a dead body in the pool.

Jen: Who is your celebrity crush?
Lucy: Hugh Jackman. I love him.

Jen: Favorite dance movie.
Lucy: I have to say Dirty Dancing but I like old musicals too. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!!

Jen: Favorite alcoholic drink? non alcoholic?
Lucy: Strawberry Margaritas and diet coke.

Jen: Favorite TV show?
Lucy: Big Bang and The Bachelor, Survivor, and anything with Gordon Ramsay

Jen: Describe your life in one word.
Lucy: Busy

Jen: Invention you can’t live without?
Lucy: Computer

Jen: Fashion style?
Lucy: Casual but I love Jimmy Choos

Jen: What do you collect?
Lucy: Nothing, but I love antiques.

Jen: If you could travel in time, where’d you go?
Lucy: Egypt, I want to see who built the Sphinx.

Jen: If you could have dinner with any author living or dead, who would it be?
Lucy: Oscar Wilde, he’s a freak.

Jen: Heels or flats?
Lucy: Both

Jen: Rainbow or chocolate sprinkles?
Lucy: Chocolate all the way.

Jen: What’s next for you?
Lucy: I’m mapping out the second series for submission to my editor. It will be based on the guys from ICU, a private search and rescue organization. The heroes from book one and book two, work for ICU.

    I definitely think that a proposal shouldn’t be prompted by a “holiday” or pressure. It should be a personal and thoughtful moment. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Rita Wray says:

    I think proposals should be on their own day. That would make it more special and not get lost in another holiday.

  3. Mary Preston says:

    I think that there is too much pressure if it’s a day like Valentines. Make it your own special, personal day.

  4. Laney4 says:

    Definitely deserves its own day. I think guys propose on big holidays so that they won’t forget the date as easily (and they think its romantic).
