Interview with Author Dina Silver
Jean / The Lovebug Blog: When did you first fall in love with chick lit and/or romance?
Dina Silver: For sure, when I read Bridget Jones’ Diary. I could read that book again tomorrow and laugh just as hard as I did the first time. One of my other favorite chick-lit books is The Girl’s Guide to Hunting and Fishing. Both books were pioneers in the genre. As for romance in general, I’ve always been a huge Pride & Prejudice goober.
What part of writing chick lit do you enjoy the most?
Dina: The humor. Anytime I can infuse wit into a story it makes me happy.
Have you ever made yourself cry while writing a scene between your heroine and hero?
I have. There were a few scenes in One Pink Line that have made me teary.
Chick lit is best known for its hunky heroes, career dramas, best friends who rock, and coming of age. Are there any ways in which your own life resembles chick lit?
Dina: All of the above! Just kidding. Well, actually, my 2nd novel, Kat Fight, is loosely based on how I met my husband…so, yes. Much of that book resembles my real life.
If you had a chance to go on a date with one of the heroes from your novels, who would you pick and why?
Dina: Wow. That’s a tough one b/c I’ve written some really good guys. Maybe Cam from Finding Bliss. Readers will have to wait to see why… 🙂
Note from Jean: Finding Bliss is currently available for preorder and will be released in July.
