INSIDE THE AUTHOR'S STUDIO!
This week's Inside the Author's Studio is with debut author Nana Malone, so come take a look around, get to know her, and enter to win a copy of her latest release!
My love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense I borrowed from my cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. I've been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With my overactive imagination, and channeling my inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before I started creating my own characters.
Waiting for my chance at a job as a ninja assassin, I, meantime work out my drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as I thinks I am. Though, until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find me acting out scenes for hubby and puppy while catching up on my favorite reality television shows in sunny San Diego.
Describe yourself in one sentence?I’m a driven enthusiast with a love of food, dancing and good books.
What are the one record, book, and food, you'd take to a desert island?
Record: Michael Jackson’s Thriller
Book: Harper Lee’s”To Kill a Mockingbird”
Food: Plantain. Lots and lots of plantain. I love it pretty much any way you can prepare it.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I had no idea. I wanted to be an MTV VJ, but realized I was too shy to pull it off and my Ghanaian parents would have a fit. So then I thought CIA agent, and realized I’d have to improve my lying skills. Then I thought I’d be great at PR…please see earlier comment about shyness. You see the pattern?
Which book do you wish you'd written?
You’re kidding right? Twilight. Holy Phenomenon.
What makes you happy?
What makes you angry?
Name five people how you'd like invite to a dinner party?
Clair Huxtable (The Cosby Show) because she was just awesome. You need a strong woman in charge to organize the troops.Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice) Because she loves her family fiercely, is strong and capable of enormous love.Jason Bourne (The Bourne Identity) I like having a bad ass as a dinner companion just in case something breaks out.Holden Caulfield (Catcher in the Rye) - Because you always need one misfit at a dinner party Gabriel Aubry (Halle Berry's ex man) - Just cause he's pretty :)
What's the scariest thing you've ever done?
Packed my bags and moved to London without a job, a place to stay, or being registered for school.
What inspired you to start writing?
Though I've always been a voracious reader, my writing career started with Bridget...Jones that is. I was in New York hating pretty much every aspect of my PR job but the writing when I picked up Bridget Jones's Diary from the library. After I stayed up all night to finish it, I wished I could do that, put words to paper and make people laugh or cry or cringe. Then I thought, why not.
Where would you most like to live?
London minus the rain :)
What is your favorite curse word?
I will always have a strong preference for the word FUCK. It can be used in so many instances to convey so many things. Though, I must learn to curb the cussing lest that be baby’s first word.
Who is your favorite man candy?
