Interview with Ashley Bostock, author of Work For It

21 Jan 2019

What can you tell us about your new release, Work For It?

Work For It has been the most enjoyable book to write so far. I am constantly inspired by the people around me who work out and choose to lead a healthy lifestyle which has changed my lifestyle this past summer. Being a romance writer, I knew I had to incorporate fitness into one of my books.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I’ve read romance novels since I was 11 years old and after having my kids, I was in a place to focus on books and writing. I had read so many books, I was like, I can do this! Stories came to me and I haven’t stopped writing since.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

Gone with the wind. Helter Skelter. Fifty Shades of Grey. The Outsiders. The Notebook.

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

My first guest would be Ann Rule and I’d ask, Can you write a book about The Golden State Killer?

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

The freedom to write when I want and things that I want to write.

What is a typical day like for you?

I wake up and sit at my computer and do social media things and check book sales, etc. Then I wake my kids up and get them off to school and then go back to the computer for a few hours to write books. I usually go downstairs and work out around 11 or noon and then afterwards, I either write or do errands.

What scene in Work For It was your favorite to write?

The part where she has to hold the flash light for him in the bathroom.

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

There are sooo many things I have to constantly tell myself. In no particular order:

Be happy. Don’t let others influence you or your thoughts. Be the best you can be. Be kind. Live your best life. Love well. Write naked. Don’t give up. Go after what you want because you might regret it if you don’t. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be. This is your life, do what makes you happy. Fail forward.
