Quick and Dirty Exclusive Interview: Audrey Carlan
1) Coffee or tea?
2) Walk on the beach or hiking a mountain?
Walk on the beach.
3) Comedy or drama?
4) TV or books?
5) Best movie you have watched in 2018 (so far)?
Fifty Shades Freed!
6) Best romance you read in 2018 (so far)?
I’ve read a ton of amazing books but The Hookup by Kristen Ashley was probably my favorite this year.
7) A book you wish you had written?
Is this a trick question? Fifty Shades of Grey
8) Favorite romance trope to read?
Secret baby and billionaires. Put them together and I’m all in!
9) Favorite romance trope to write?
I try really hard not to write trope though I’m sure I’ve fallen into a trope once and a while. If I had to choose, I guess it would be an alpha male with a heart of gold.
10) Favorite place to write?
In my office with nothing but silence.
11) Your heroine that most closely resembles you?
I’m careful not to make characters replicas of me or anyone in my life, but I’d say Gillian from my Trinity Series is the most like me.
12) A trait that all of your heroes must have?
They must be respectful of all women.
13) A setting (city/region) you want to write about in the future?
So many options to choose from! I think I’d like to focus a book on an area in Italy. Maybe, Venice or Rome.
14) The actor and actress you used to physically model your H/h after in International Guy, Volume 1?
Actually, I used the model on the cover as my vision for Parker. His name is Forest Harrison. For Skyler I used actress Olivia Holt.
15) Your favorite scene from International Guy?
There’s a scene from Madrid that has our hero and heroine going to a Flamenco dinner show that was not only intense to write, but filled with sexual tension and heat. I’m looking forward to hearing what the readers think of the more sensual aspects of this series.
16) A song that encapsulates the emotion of International Guy?
Girl Like You by Maroon 5. If you watch the video it shows how one guy connects with so many women but sees each one of them as beautiful and unique.
17) What’s next?
After International Guy I’ll probably write three spin offs of the other characters you meet and fall in love with in the series. I also want to write a couple standalone novels that aren’t related to a series at all. Mostly though, I want to take a good break. I’ve been writing this series for over a year and my muse needs some chill time to soak up life and the experiences around me.
