Ask the Author: Andie J. Christopher
What would you like readers to know about you?
Ha! I’m pretty much an open book on social media. I really want my readers to feel seen and as though my heroines are friends.
What is your book about for those who haven’t read it?
So, my book is a millennial take on the trope in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. In my version of the trope, the male main character is the journalist who is trying to “lose” the female main character. The heroine is also biracial–like me.
What has been your inspiration for writing it?
Definitely the movie, along with my own experiences and my friends’ experiences while dating were huge inspirations for me.
What was your favorite scene or part of your book to write?
I think the scene where the protagonists meet. It came to me fully formed, which doesn’t always happen, but it made the whole concept feel like kismet.
What books or authors inspired you to become a writer?
I think when I read Laid Bare by Lauren Dane I knew for sure that I wanted to write for real. But I had always thought about writing–almost from the first time that I picked up a category romance. Romance novels really just always spoke to me.
What advice would you give to aspiring authors who want to write a book?
Write the book you want to read. Write the book that no one but you can write. Rinse and repeat.
