On Saturday, May 3rd, I (Steph) had the opportunity to attend the D.C. Author Event and interview the 13 authors in a rapid-fire format. (We called it “Speed Dating”, haha). It was an absolute blast getting to hang out with some of my favorite authors, and getting to know each of them a little bit better through during our “dates”.
Starting May 7th, we will be highlighting 1 author each day, and share with you a few moments from their interviews, spotlight some of their books, and give you an opportunity to win 1 of 13 SIGNED books (by the featured authors).
Pretty awesome, right?
Today’s Author Spotlight: Rebecca Donovan!
Q: Which is the hardest to write, the first or last line of your book?
For Rebecca, it’s the first line that is the hardest. As a matter of fact, she said that her book Reason to Breathe had 4-5 different “starts”. She also says that for the beginning, it’s all about getting it “just right”. The beginning is the intro to everything, so it’s important that it catches a reader’s attention. There have been times that she’s even gone back to rewrite the beginning of her book after she was done.
Q: What is at the top of your bucket list?
Rebecca had some unique responses! Here’s what’s at the top of her bucket list:
1.) She wants to go White Water Rafting in Zambezi. (Sounds adventurous!)
2.) She wants to go on vacay to Tahiti! She said she wants to go there because it’s beautiful and romantic!
3.) She wants to start a non-profit. (Awesomeness!)
She’s very optimistic that she will be able to do all of these things! I just hope she takes pictures to share with us!
Q: Do you have any hidden talents?
Rebecca says that her hidden talent is DANCE! She loves dancing, and she’s “crazy on the dance floor”!
Time for a dance-off!
Thanks for meeting with me, Rebecca!
