Interview with Nana Malone, author of Cheeky Royal

17 Apr 2018

What can you tell us about your new release, Cheeky Royal?

Cheeky Royal is book 1 in the Royals Undercover duet. It’s a funny heartwarmingly hilarious take on a royal romance.  I love it so much because I got to make the girl the royal guard in charge of protecting the oh so cocky prince. And I also got to dig in to my romantic comedy roots. So if you love a cocky prince, a sassy royal guard and laugh out loud romantic comedy adventures, you’ll enjoy this hilarious friends to royal lovers romance!

Who is your favorite couple from literature?

Elizabeth and Darcy of course!

What or who inspired you to become an author?

Helen Fielding – Bridget Jones’s Diary. Until that book I hadn’t seen anyone writing with my kind of voice. I loved every word and it inspired me to write my first book.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

Getting to watch the characters fall in love. I’m on the same wild ride as the readers are half the time. Lol.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?

This is an easy one. Cuddled up with the kidlet as we both read.

What scene in Cheeky Royal was your favorite to write?

Oh my gosh, so many. But maybe my most favorite was the scene where Penny is getting a photography lesson from Sebastian. She lets it slip that she no longer has a boyfriend and the one obvious obstacle to them being together is gone. Things get pretty steamy pretty quickly. The tension is awesome in that scene. Of course, in this scene neither one of them knows who the other really is so that makes for some problems later, lol.

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

Anything can be done given enough time and resources. I don’t believe in not being able to do something. I work hard to scrub the word can’t from my vocabulary.
