I feel really lucky to have had the opportunity to interview Claudia, whose new contemporary romance came out in February this year. I haven't had the chance to read the book yet, but from what I've heard it sounds great.
Here is the book description:
Getting By (A Knight's Tale) by Claudia Y. Burgoa is a new-adult contemporary romance novel.
When Emma Anderson arrived at San Francisco International Airport, she regretted accepting the distinction of being the maid of honor to Gaby's--her childhood friend--wedding. It had been years since the last time she set foot in Menlo Park, where her parents had been killed. The rug where she had been shoving her feelings since that day looked bumpier than a camel's hump. Who could blame her; if she hadn't been selfish they'd still be around. Ever since that fateful day, Emma has been perfecting the knack of Getting By.
Cade's wedding in Menlo Park--a city close to San Francisco--might be the perfect place for Jake Knight to shake the memories of his ex, Emma Anderson for good. Single, available women galore for an entire week was the perfect medication, one he intended to take three times a day for an entire week to return to his player days. It was a plan the former spy thought flawless until he came face to face with the maid of honor. Jake's perfect retreat turns into a flight, fight or hide week of celebrations.
What got you into writing?
My love for books, the need to write the stories that I make up in my mind.
What makes you want to write contemporary (specifically romance) books?
I like for everyone to find their soulmate, that person that completes them.
Does anything in your story relate to your real life?
The Knight family are in some ways a reflection of my favorite aunt and uncle; and their three single—and available—sons.
What can readers expect from the story?
Family ties, a trio of hot brother and two conflicted soulmates that need come to terms about their past and how to tackle their future.
What sort of books do you personally enjoy to read?
Like music, I’ve eclectic taste. I enjoy about every genre—except horror, I’ve read only a few of those in my life time.
Thank you for the interview Claudia!
