Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Blog Hop

Major props to Victoria Smith and Jaycee DeLorenzo for hosting the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Blog Hop!
Once I saw the instructions for this hop, I knew I had to join:

Interview a heroine of your manuscript, novel, or WIP by a fellow female counterpart also from one of your written works.  Your featured heroine can be interviewed by her best friend, a heroine from another one of your written works, a sister, the opportunities are endless!

My heroine is Sophie Taylor from The Conduct Series. She's an ex-psychologist who just got out of prison due to an improper relationship with her psychotherapy client, who turned out to be a Mafia man. Sophie is wary of trusting men until she meets fellow parolee Grant Madsen. Sparks fly between them!

Sophie's best friend from grad school, Kirsten Holland, interviews her today.

Kirsten: Hey, roomie!

Sophie: Hola, chica.

Kirsten: As you know, I coined the nickname "McSailor" for your boyfriend Grant Madsen. How would you describe him?

Sophie: You named him McSailor when you found out he used to be in the Navy. Too bad for Grant the name stuck! They say the eyes are the window to the soul, and Grant's eyes are beautiful, just like he is. His eyes are crystal blue--pure and shining. He's kind and gentle, and also very brave. Sometimes he's quiet but other times he shows his goofy side. Grant's smart, respectful, and polite.

Kirsten: I'd say...that man calls just about everyone "ma'am" or "sir"! What's the best date you've ever had?

Sophie: When Grant took me to the White Sox game then to a Mediterranean restaurant, it was pretty great. But really, my fondest memory of our time together wasn't even a date. It was one of our first nights working together on the architectural cruise ship, when Grant got liquored up on tequila. He was the docent for the cruise, and he was freaking hilarious on the mic. When he began singing Frank Sinatra, with his smooth, sexy voice, I knew he was something special. The alcohol let his guard down, and he was so carefree for once...I think I fell in love with him that night.

Kirsten: *sighs* You two are so cute together. I want my own McSailor! Okay, moving on...What's your biggest date horror story?

Sophie: *laughs* You're getting kind of personal, aren't you?

Kirsten: We're both shrinks...I know you can handle it.

Sophie: *glares* Did I ever tell you about the guy I dated who worked for my dad's company? Total druggie?

Kirsten: No! Spill it.

Sophie: His name was Derek. I met him when I was eighteen, and he was almost thirty.

Kirsten: Bet that pissed off your dad.

Sophie: No kidding. I think that was the whole point. Anyway, Derek took me to a party at his friend's place. When I saw people were doing cocaine, I freaked out. I asked him to take me home but he wouldn't--he was probably too trashed to drive anyway.

Kirsten: Jerk. What'd you do?

Sophie: Luckily, my dad was out of town for work, so my mom came and got me, yelling at me the whole time we drove home, but at least she didn't tell my dad.

Kirsten: Okay, last question. Boxers or briefs on your guy?

Sophie: Neither. I like my McSailor buck naked in my bed!


The Conduct Series includes With Good Behavior (#1) and Bad Behavior (#2). I'm currently writing On Best Behavior (#3), having a blast torturing Sophie and Grant!

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

I absolutely LOVED this Jennifer. McSailor??? Too awesome :D And these characters sound like my kind of peeps. I love witty and funny and good gracious she likes her men in the buff!!! Too awesome!

Jennifer Lane said...

Roland, Kirsten and Sophie would love to be your friend too. You're very supportive and talented!

Jennifer Lane said...

Victoria, thanks so much! I have to run off to work now but I'll be back to read the interview between Rae and Ariel. :)

Wonderful idea for a blog hop, dear.

Kyra Lennon said...

I like these girls, and McSailor sounds all kinds of hot!

Jennifer Lane said...

I'm glad you saw the real McSailor in this interview, Kyra! Thanks for stopping by. How are edits going?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nothing wrong with buck naked!
I probably agreed with that too fast, didn't I?

jaybird said...

Oh, I'm a sucker for a guy in uniform. I think I'd go for McSailor in a heart beat.

Jennifer said...

I LOVE the nickname McSailor and that he looks like Wentworth Miller! I can totally picture him getting drunk and singing Sinatra. *drools* Great interview!

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

I was sold when I saw McSailor...and buck naked in bed? Sounds good to me! LOL.

Great interview! Thanks for participating! :D

Jennifer Lane said...

Alex, not at all. It probably took you a good 10 seconds to type that! :-)

Jennifer Lane said...

Victoria, your interview was SO witty and funny! Thank you for this awesome hop.

Jennifer Lane said...

Jaybird, we are simpatico...I adore men in uniform.

Jennifer Lane said...

P.S. Jaybird, that's wild we both used the "eyes are the window to the soul" comment. (And mine's not even paranormal!)

Jennifer Lane said...

Jennifer, Wentworth Miller makes me drool too, and the fact that he was a singer at Princeton makes him even sexier!

Jennifer Lane said...

Jaycee, many thanks for this wonderful hop. Like many of the girls on the hop, I had a lot of fun. Heading over to check out your interview now!

Tara Tyler said...

love the nickname! cute conversation

Aldrea Alien said...

"Buck naked in my bed." Yes, that's a wonderful answer.
Oh wait, she means her bed. Nevermind then. Horrible answer. ^_~

Love the feeling of closeness between these two.

Jennifer Lane said...

Tara, thank you!

Aldrea, he's just a fictional character you know. ;-) But "my" bed does indeed sound better than "her" bed!

Thanks for stopping by, ladies! Off to return the favor.

Aldrea Alien said...

Fictional? Darn.

Guess I'll just have to give you this award I have instead. ^_^

Sophia Rose said...

Fun interview! I loved Sophie and her McSailor. Looking forward to On Best Behavior!

Jennifer Lane said...

Aldrea, thank you for the award! I've been so busy I didn't have the time to create a post in response, but thanks for thinking of me.

Jennifer Lane said...

Hi Sophia, thanks for all your support with Sophie and her man. ;) I hope to write some more of On Best Behavior tomorrow when I'm taking a day off work.

Lauri Meyers said...

Ha! That was a great "interview." What a great way to get some inspiration and practice voice.

Jennifer Lane said...

Hey Lauri, thanks for stopping by my blog. This hop was all kinds of fun. :)
