Interview with Anastasia Alexander, Author of Tangles of the Heart
23 Jun 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, Tangles of the Heart?
My two youngest children and my husband helped me plot out the story as we were waiting for fireworks to start on the fourth of July. It centers around Darlene Britain, who has to choose between two men– one who is safe and her best friend and the other who is a race car driver, takes risks, and committed to his passion. The beginning of the story takes place in Island Park, Idaho, which was my family’s favorite place to go on the weekends. My mom said Island Park would stay in my heart when I grow up, and she was right.
What books are currently on your nightstand?
After You by JoJo Moyes, Creation of Eve by Lynee Cullen, Daring Greatly by Brene Brown and A Lamp in the Darkness by Jack Kornfield.
What advice would you give your teenage self?
You are loved and enjoy your freedom.
If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?
Reading a good novel.
What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?
I really love hanging out with my two youngest girls. They make me laugh. They are very loving to me, and we have a great time being creative and doing projects together.
What scene in Tangles of the Heart was your favorite to write?
Wow. That is hard. Probably the race car scenes. I worked side-by-side with my husband creating those scenes. He used to be a racer so he advised me to make those scenes true to real life.
