If Harper’s Wish had a subtitle, what would it be?
Harper's Wish: A Taste of Humble Pie - because Harper gets a taste of humility after she loses her critic's job and goes to work for Connor.
What’s the theme of Harper’s Wish?
A little bit about regret and wishing you could undo actions of the past but also about the bravery it takes to pursue your heart's desire.
Which actor/actress would be part of your dream cast?
Kevin Ryan would play Connor, and Elisha Cuthbert would play Harper. See more casting in yesterday's Heartwarming blog post from Loree & me!
|Kevin Ryan as Connor and Elisha Cuthbert as Harper - they make an adorable couple, am I right??|
What’s your favorite scene?
When Harper & Connor attend the July 4 festival and watch the Skipjack races on the bay. It's just one of those warm & fuzzy moments. <3
What was the best part about researching Harper’s Wish?
Visiting the Chesapeake town of Havre de Grace, MD with my BFF: we stayed in a B&B, visited 2 coffeeshops, took photos, and laughed a lot.
Who is your favorite character in the story?
Surprisingly, it's Erin, whose story I'll get to tell in Findlay Roads #3. I know what's going to happen to her, even though she doesn't. :(
What song would you choose as the “theme song” for the story?
My Wish For You by Rascal Flatts: not just b/c Wish is in the title but also b/c country music is a big part of the next Findlay Roads book!
What’s your favorite thing about your hero, Connor?
His Irish accent and the fact that he's a chef. A handsome Irish lad who will cook for me? What's not to love, I ask? Plus, I can't help...
...loving how protective he is of those he loves - his daughter, his sister, his employees...and eventually, Harper... #crushingoncharacters
(Okay, so that was actually two tweets, but forgive me just this once…for Connor’s sake. And it wouldn't be Twitter without at least one hashtag thrown in there.)
What's your favorite reader response to the story?
"Really, Cerella?! Can I strangle you for torturing Connor some more? I'm feeling protective of him. It's the Irish accent." #readerprobs
What are you writing next?
The sequel to Harper's Wish, featuring Connor's sister, Rory. Remember how Sawyer breaks up with her in this book? There's more to the story!
