I adore Katharine Ashe because she’s the sort of hip, cool chick who writes her own rules. And she is as much a smart aleck as I am–maybe more so. Love that in a person. Hope you get to like her as well! Here are Five Things about Katharine Ashe:
1) Favorite indulgence: Champagne. Admittedly, this may not come as a surprise to many.
EB: See what I mean? Her cookie obsession is legendary and fills her Twitter feed. Guaranteed to make you hungry all day long.
3) Most played song on your iPod: Lately I’ve been listening to the playlist I made while writing In the Arms of a Marquess. Tyler Hilton’s “You’ll Ask For Me” turns me inside out with longing.
4) Coolest celeb you’ve ever met–other than me: There is no ‘other than you’. But if you insist… It has to be LL Cool J. I was checking him into the luxury hotel I worked at where all the Earth Day celebrities were staying that year, and he called me “Baby.”
5) Best advice your mother/grandmother/ cool funky aunt/sister/ college roommate gave you about men: No one ever gave me the advice, “Yes, dear, kiss all the men you like,” so I pretty much never listened to any of it.
Katharine Ashe’s new book, In the Arms of a Marquess, is available now. Which is good news for those us looking for an extra book for Labor Day weekend.
