If the scent of a brand new paperback gets you giddy then you will be squealing with delight to hear about this new series! Here to introduce book one of her Corrupted Hearts series - welcome Tiffany Snow!
Lexi: In the blurb for FOLLOW ME you introduce two possible romantic interests for China: Clark and Jackson. You make it very difficult to root for just one! A few years ago you stopped by the blog to talk about writing intimate scenes and the challenge of finding the right words. Don’t spill any secrets but did you find the perfect fit for China?
Writing China has been so much fun! She’s such a distinctive character, inspired by other great character such as Dr. Temperence Brennan on Bones and Dr. Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory, with a dash of Alias and 24 thrown in. As far as physical appearance, I drew on Zooey Deschanel for her looks. I drew on the sexy Matthew Goode for Jackson. And Tom Welling for Clark.
Lexi: There is no question you know your way around a bedroom scene but you’re also known as a master at writing romantic suspense. I think the two go together as well as wine and cheese. Can you tell us something about one of your favorite heart pounding scenes in FOLLOW ME?
There is one scene where a suicide vest is involved. I did quite a bit of research on how those are made and detonated. It’s a horrifying murder weapon because of the mentality of the person who uses it, I think. I once read that you can’t stop someone from killing someone else if they’re willing to forfeit their own lives to do so. It’s a chilling thought that has stuck with me and contributes to one particular scene in FOLLOW ME.
Lexi: I think part of what makes your books so addictive is how your writing makes the story real. Not in the way that us as readers will experience the same things but that the tension is palpable, the conflicts bring a gut reaction, the humor is pop culture, and the chemistry sizzles. Was there any point while writing China’s story that made you sit back and laugh out loud?
Oh my, is it bad to say I sometimes crack myself up? LOL I think what makes me smile when I write China is how very different her world view is. Her take on things is more literal than most of us, which is hard for her, but she accepts herself the way she is. One part of her life I found amusing is her relationship with her Granny, who loves to tell China all about her life in a Florida retirement community, no matter how much some of it is really TMI (like Viagra Wednesdays).
Lexi: China is a strong woman but she has some…quirks. And she also has the best t-shirts. What shirt of hers is the one you wish you owned?
I really want the Supernatural one that says “Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his pie hole.” LOL! Love those Supernatural boys!
Lexi: Fandoms are so much fun! Thank you so much for hanging out with some of your reader fans today! Congrats on FOLLOW ME and the beginning of the new series. We will be eagerly waiting for the second book of the Corrupted Hearts series!
Thank you for having me!! I hope my readers enjoy FOLLOW ME and fall in love with China Mack.
