Interview with Alice Ward, author of The List

27 Apr 2017

What can you tell us about your new release, The List?

It’s a steamy billionaire romance but I’m hoping people will see and love that it’s a little different from the normal billionaire trope. Here, we have four billionaires who, on the outside, appear to be not very nice. They’ve created this list of all their prior hookups and each of them goes to it whenever they’re in the mood for someone new.

Then, one of them, Xavier, meets Riley, and it all changes for him. He can’t stop thinking about her and, for the first time, doesn’t want to put her name on the list. But, this could lead to trouble… for him and his other three partners. Because he wants to tell Riley everything but no one knows what she might do with this information.

It’s been receiving wonderful reviews so far and I’m touched and thrilled.

Which books would we be surprised to find on your shelves?

I love dogs but gave up having any since my hubby is allergic. So, instead, I love to read about them. One of my favorites is Marley and Me. I cried when I read it and when I saw the movie.

You’re hosting a literary dinner party. Which three writers are invited?

I think it would be fascinating to have a discussion with Anne Desclos (she wrote The Story of O way back in 1954 and had a big impact on the erotic romance BDSM genre) and the Bronte sisters. Technically, that’s four writers but you can’t invite only two of the three Bronte sisters. That would be rude. 🙂

What’s a typical day like for you?

It starts with coffee. Lots of COFFEE! LOL Then I check email, my Facebook page and group. Once I tear myself away from all that I settle in for my day of writing For me, it’s a fulltime job and I’m thankful every day that I’m able to do this. I live in Florida so if the weather is nice, I write at the beach. If not, I go to my favorite Starbucks. And, you guessed it… I drink more coffee. 🙂

BAM. You’re a superhero. What’s your superpower?

Flying. I get so impatient when I’m sitting in traffic.

What’s your favorite play or musical?

Jersey Boys is my favorite musical. Our Town is my favorite play, only because my husband and I fell in love while working on it back in our high school theater department

What scene in The List was your favorite to write?

I loved every second of writing The List so it’s so hard to choose. If I have to, I’d say the scene when Riley and Xavier first meet. It could have gone in so many different directions and was such fun!

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire. This strikes such a chord in me. I wish I knew who coined it.
