Mandy Hubbard Interview
Mandy Hubbard's Debut Book, PRADA AND PREJUDICE, is out and on the shelves!
Here's a sneak peek at what's in store for you when you open this fab book.
Fifteen year old Callie just wants to impress the popular girls when she buys a pair of Prada heels on her class trip to London. She didn’t plan on tripping, conking her head, and waking up in 1815! Now she’s wearing corsets with her designer pumps, eating bizarre soups, and breaking up engagements. If only the nineteen year old Duke of Harksbury wasn’t so bloody annoying, she might have a little fun in Austen-Era England…
So who is Mandy Hubbard?
Mandy Hubbard grew up on a dairy farm outside Seattle, where she refused to wear high heels until homecoming—and hated them so much she didn’t wear another pair for five years. A cowgirl at heart, she enjoys riding horses and quads and singing horribly to the latest country tune. She’s currently living happily ever after with her husband (who, sadly, is not a Duke) and her daughter (who is most definitely a princess). Prada and Prejudice is her first novel.
I had to know more (I've become a nosy blog-person), so here are a few questions I asked Mandy.
Of all your favorite books, which one do you wish you had written?
Probably HUNGER GAMES. It's totally different than anything I will ever write! It's much more action oriented, in addition to being straight fantasy.
What fictional character do you wish you could be?
Elizabeth from Pride & Prejudice. :-D
She's one popular girl, isn't she?
After chocolate what do you eat to make the writer-block pain go away?
I actually am addicted to Diet Coke. Doritos are excellent as well, but if I eat them while writing, the whole bag will disappear.
Mandy, you've officially entered the Authors' Junk Hall of Fame, along with every other Deb who has made an appearance here. Congratulations!
