Scarlett’s debut novel was published in 2010. Since then, she has become a wife, a mother to identical twins and one naughty dog, and a killer karaoke singer (or so she pretends). She likes Middle English, poetry, chips and salsa, the Foo Fighters, romance novels, history, and the serial comma. But not necessarily in that order.

Q&A with Scarlett

(Excerpt from an interview with Book Junkie)

Q: If someone were writing a story about you, what would the blurb say?

Rarely seen in the wild, this creature haunts her keyboard and spends far too much time daydreaming about her next book. She cooks some mean ribs, loves wine, and has the best husband in the world. Seriously.

Q: If you could trade places with one of your characters, would you want to and who would it be?

I happen to like my modern day luxuries and definitely would not survive in a world without air conditioning. But if I had to trade places, I would choose Cleo from A Mad Passion. She wears some formidable fashion and gets to attend a country house party. What could be better?

Q: What would readers be surprised to learn about you?

Before becoming a published romance author, I published a great deal of poetry and short fiction in literary journals under a different name. Now that I’m busy with romance, my literary work has taken a backseat, but I’m still very proud of all the journals I managed to get my work into.

Q: If you could ask readers any one question, what would it be?

What is your biggest motivating factor when it comes to choosing a book to read?
