I am fascinated by all the authors who are writing e-reads, like Lavinia Kent, who is releasing The Real Duchesses of London novellas, so I asked her to drop by and share five things about herself you and I might not know. That and I liked her book trailer. So without further ado, Five Things About Lavinia Kent:
1) Favorite dessert : Really good Key Lime Pie.
3) Secret passion (hobby, collections, sport, thrill seeking): Reality TV. I love it, particularly Bravo’s Real Housewives. It what made writing Kathryn, the Kitten, the first of my The Real Duchesses of London novellas so fun.
(EB: I swear, writers can find inspiration in the wildest places!)
4) Coolest celeb you’ve ever met: Living in Washington, DC, I’ve had several brushes with the political types, but my favorite encounter ever was probably shaking hands with Sting at a restaurant in Boston years ago. My boyfriend at the time was working as a sous chef and when he called me to say Sting was there I broke all speed limits driving over.
(EB: Okay, Lavinia, that is the coolest celeb mentioned yet. I would have driven from Seattle to shake his hand. Then I would have probably begged him to sing Roxanne to me and not let go of his hand until he did.)
5) Best advice my mother/grandmother/cool funky aunt/sister/college roommate gave me about men: I am sorry but I can’t repeat it – not even among friends. It was very technical.
(EB: Not. Even. Going. To. Ask.)
So there are Lavinia’s Five Things. Her first novella in her The Real Duchesses of London series, Kathryn, The Kitten, is available now. For more information about her other books, please visit her website: LaviniaKent.com. And since I couldn’t resist, here is the fun trailer for her series:
