We are so happy to welcome Laura Howard to the tearoom. Laura’s paranormal fantasy romance is The Forgotten Ones, available May 15, 2013. It fits the New Adult age group. To start us off, Laura answered our five favorite questions.
1. What was the first romance novel you ever read?
Again the Magic by Lisa Kleypas
2. Your house is on fire–which five romance novels do you grab on your way out?
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
Thoughtless by SC Stephens
Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
3. What is your secret passion?
4. Why do you write romance?
Because of the fantasy of that all-consuming love that only exists for a select few in real life. My husband and I are partners who love each other, but real life can be a little less than dreamy. It’s nice to live through the sweet with moments through stories that rarely happen after 14 years of living with someone.
5. Is there anything in your book that comes from personal experience?
My heroine is a codependent introvert like me. That’s where our similarities end, though.
6. What is your favorite kind of tea and how do you drink it?
I like orange pekoe with milk and sugar.
