What happens when happily ever after is the hard part...

Lauren Brooks wants to do three things: Escape the small town she grew
up in, get accepted to her dream school in Chicago, and graduate
without drowning in debt. Now she’s working her ass off to do just that.

With a full course load and a waitressing job at one of the hottest
night clubs in Chicago, she does not have time for distractions;namely
ones who only want to get into her pants. She’s been burned before.
Only a fool goes for a second round.. With just two semesters left
until graduation, everything’s on track.

Until she meets Cal. Enter distraction.

At six-foot-two, with ebony hair, deep grey eyes, and a smile that
could only hide an agenda, she knows he’s trouble. And for the first
time in her life, a little trouble might be just what she needs.

No. What she wants.

It isn't like she’d ever marry the guy.
Until she does.

What she thinks will be her happily ever after, is only the beginning.
Cal has a secret. One that makes loving him come with a price, and being his wife cost more than she bargained for.


Now, let's get to know Portia a bit, shall we?

KH: Is there music or television on while you write?

PM: I tend to play music before writing to set the mood and turn it off once I actually start.

KH: Outside of your own, what's your favorite book?

PM: At the moment Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.

KH: As an author, are you a planner (outline) or a pantser (by the seat of)?

PM: I usually am a panster but once I get to a certain point where I have a feel for the characters I'll write out main plot points I want to hit.

KH: Would your MC want hang out with you and vice versa?

PM: No, because I'd probably have pretty inappropriate thoughts about her husband whenever I saw him. That's not good!

KH: Phobias? Do your phobias ever work their way into your writing? 

PM: BUGS! All aside from spiders because they kill other bugs. Maybe a spider will one day.

KH: Which authors inspired you as a young adult?

PM: JK Rowling and Omar Tyree.

KH: Do you believe in love at first sight? Why or why not?

PM: No. I'm a strong believer in lust at first sight lol. Lust can be powerful enough to get you to stick around for love.

KH: What is one characteristic about yourself that you love?

PM: I really don't harp on negative things. I'm pretty forgiving and not one to hold grudges. It makes family fights a lot easier to get over.

KH: Where is your favorite place to write?

PM: In my back yard when the weather allows.

KH: Why did you decide to write the genre that you do?

PM: Initially I didn't really decide to. I wrote the story I wanted to tell and it happened to fall into the New Adult Genre. I'm 26 but I still feel like I'm just getting a hang of adult hood and it's still very new to me.

KH: What advice would you give aspiring authors?

PM: Write the book you want to read. That way if no one else wants to you'll have at least one fan:).
