Hi Stefanie and welcome to HJ! We’re so excited to chat with you about your new release, Bad Reputation!

 

Please share a few Fun facts about this book…

Remi’s “thong” story isn’t entirely fiction
 
Remi is an Australian living in New York, and she stumbled into trouble when she forgot to use her American words while in the security line at JFK airport. In Australia, thongs are flip flops (and we call thong-style panties ‘G-strings’) and it’s totally fine to talk about footwear….well, usually. This funny story was absolutely inspired by a friend who found herself in that exact same situation, loudly proclaiming about her thongs in front of a family with several little kids right behind her. Be careful what you say around writers, it might end up in a book!
 
Wes’s nickname “The Anaconda” was inspired by a celebrity

I’m a HUGE Mad Men fan and I’ll freely admit I have a massive crush on Jon Hamm. So, while looking through Pinterest one day, I saw an article talking about Jon Hamm and his “hammaconda.” So, in tribute I decided to call Wes “The Anaconda” and, of course, I had to include a reference to the inspiration in one of the Bad Bachelor reviews that features in the book.
 
The idea for “Out of Bounds” came from my grandmother!

My grandmother was one of those people who always had a story to tell. Sadly, she hasn’t been with us for a long time, but I often find myself drawing on her stories at random moments. She once told me that the greatest show she’d ever seen was Cats, because the show started with the cats members in the audience, crawling and walking around between theatregoers. It was such an unexpected way to open the show that I wondered what it might be like if the entire show was produced in that fashion. Hence, “Out of Bounds” was born.
 
 

Thanks for blogging at HJ!

Book Info:

It’s true, Wes is well-endowed.
But everything else is a huge misunderstanding…
Wes Evans, son of Broadway royalty, just wants to achieve something without riding his family’s coattails. Too bad the whole world is talking about his sex life after the notorious Bad Bachelors app dubs him “The Anaconda”. But when he sees a talented ballet dancer, he knows she is exactly what he needs to make his show a success.

Remi Drysdale only had one thought when she fled Australia for New York―never mix business with pleasure again. Ever. Working with Wes is the perfect chance to reclaim her career. Remi promises herself not to tangle with the guy who holds her career in his hands…no matter how enticing his reviews are on the Bad Bachelors app.

    Ages ago I saw FIDDLER ON THE ROOF on stage. It was a very special night. I loved it.

  2. lraines78

    We have a barn theater near us and I always go to their musicals. The one I liked the best was Sound of Music.

  3. janinecatmom

    I saw The Rolling Stones when I was a teenager. Even though it rained and it was an outside concert, it was still one of the most memorable concerts I have ever seen. A close running second would be seeing Type O Negative and Pantera was there to watch the show too. At the end Pantera came out on stage with a tray of food and the bands got into a food fight right there on the stage. It was funny.

    I tend to like country music more, but I saw Pink and she was out of this world. Best concert I have ever been to.

  5. kermitsgirl

    The very first concert I ever went to changed my life. It was an N*SYNC concert that I didn’t even want to go to because I didn’t like Boy Bands, but my best friend had an extra ticket because another girl bailed on her the day before.

    We were 7th row, center, in a HUGE soccer arena where the only seats NOT sold were the ones directly behind the stage. It. Was. AMAZING.

    I now go to every concert I get a chance to, even if I’ve never heard of/don’t like the band, because the atmosphere is SO energizing.

  6. Barbara Bates

    The best concert I ever saw was Jon Bon Jovi with my daughter when she was 14. We had a blast!

  7. Nancy Luebke

    It’s been a while, but we had been at a business convention, and they had one of those old bands and it was great and crazy at the same time.

  8. Teresa Williams

    Well I’m 60 years old and have never been to a concert or anything .Lol unless you count when they have Rock The South and I can hear in from the porch.

    Growing up my parents would take us to a dinner theater as well as to see musicals on tour. In school we had the priviledge of attending the symphony orchestra. My husband loves classical music and opera, so we’ve gone to those. My favorite might be Camelot or Man of La Mancha.

    BTW, growing up in Chicago we called them thongs not flip flops. At least in the 60s.

  10. Irma

    For me it was a concert of the group I really like. My hubby went with me and it was such a great night.

  11. rachaelconstant

    ive never been to a concert. the best live shows ive seen were ones at disneyland

  12. Glenda M

    A couple years ago we went to a Billy Joel concert – he’s still got the magic! One of the highlights was when one of his guitarists sang an Italian love song acapella. The man has an amazing voice!

  13. Terrill R.

    Seeing Neil Diamond live was a concert that I had wanted to see since I was 12 and finally got to see him when I was nearly 30. Loved it!
