Romance Weekly's Authors answer questions about serious and non-so-serious aspects of writing. Enjoy! This week's questions come from Joanne Guidoccio. Great questions, Joanne!
1. Scenario: A Hollywood producer is interested in your book. Can you come up with an enticing logline (plot summary of 25 words or less)?
Seeking redemption, Ex-priest Nicholas Serafini returns home to renovate the house that's haunted his nightmares. Protecting first love Liz wasn't part of the plan.
2. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I had already pinned Chris O'Donnell as my hero, Nick Serafini. He's a grounded, sincere, passionate actor and that's what I see in Nick. He comes home to reconnect and face his demons. He does not expect to face his first love, Liz Williams, the new owner of the dilapidated house of horrors. I see Jayma Mays as Liz. She's got that girl-next-door look (at least in this picture), sexy but sweet.
3. Does the storyline of your novel compare with any films out there?
Not that I know of and I really hope not! I have a manuscript I wrote that strongly resembles a bestseller from Nicholas Sparks. I wrote it before his was published, so I know his didn't influence my story unless we have a psychic connection. Still, I've left it for fear of being perceived as a knock off artist. Sooner or later, a plot twist or change of characters will come to me that will make it fresh and unique.
