Interview with Claire Contreras, author of The Player

15 Oct 2016

What can you tell us about your new release, The Player?
It is friends to lovers, opposites attract, and sports romance wrapped up in one!

Who is your favorite fictional character from literature?
Madeline from Ludwig Bemelmans’ books.


When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be something different every other day. FBI agent is one that stands out.

Where did you write The Player? (your couch, a coffee shop, a bar… hey – we won’t judge)
LOL mainly one of my favorite coffee shops.


Since The Player is a sports romance, do you have an interest in sports? If so, who is your favorite team or player?
Yes and no. I like sports, but I only really pay attention to college football (Go Canes!)

What scene in The Player was your favorite to write?
When Warren goes to Camila’s parent’s house with her.

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
