Today I’m welcoming Jerri Drennen to the blog to be interviewed and talk about her new title, Her Man Flint. You can also read an excerpt.
Where were you born?
Counsil Bluffs, Iowa
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Other than author, what jobs have you had?
Waitress and homemaker.
About Jerri’s writing
How did you come to write Her Man Flint?
I think it was watching a combination of James Bond and Austin Powers that gave me the idea for the book.
What’s the opening paragraph?
Flint Morgan skirted the ledge above the deep, rocky ravine when a bullet whined by, narrowly missing his head. With apprehension, he scanned the gully for the shooter while another round of the projectiles zipped so close air rushed into his ear. While sidestepping the next, a jagged rock in his path tore through the leg of his jeans and cut his calf.
Jerri said she would rather:
Sell a million copies of this book but never win an award than win a Nobel Prize for Literature but only sell 20,000 copies
Now for a bit of fun…
What’s the most exciting book you’ve read this year?
It’s not published but its a critique partner of mines. I can’t wait for it to be published so that I can get my copy.
Describe your perfect weekend…
At home with nothing but quiet.
Describe a more realistic weekend…
Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning and chasing after the granddaughter who is causing the mess.
You’re having a dinner party and you can invite one writer, one musician, one monarch, one villain and one president. Who do you invite and why?
Wow, this is hard.
As for the writers, probably James Patterson and Nora Robert so I could picked their brain on why they’re so successful.
Easy on the musician–Adam Levine, lead singer of Maroon Five because he’s hot.
Not so into the Monarchy, though after doing some digging, I apparently come from royalty.
A villian, hummm, real life or fiction? That’s really hard since one man’s villian is another man’s hero.
As for the president, that’s easy, too, JFK.
You get to spend the afternoon with my six cats – heaven or hell? Explain!
Heaven since I have 6 of them myself.
Fill in the blanks – how did Jerri finish these openers?
He took her trembling body in his manly arms…
…and shook some sense into her.
He tipped his hat and turned away. After a few steps he stopped…
…and turned back and said, I think I forgot my coat.
In the darkness, I heard the sound of…
….footsteps drawing closer. I turned to find it was all my imagination.
Word association – how did Jerri respond to these word prompts?
Bestseller… I wish it was mine
Now you get to ask me a question…
How did you come up with these questions?
I made a list of all the things that popped into my head and picked out my favourites. My interview questions are changing soon so pop back in the future if you’d like to answer more!
Thank you so much to Jerri for joining me! Don’t forget to check out the excerpt.
