Interview with Olivia Sinclair, Author of Acceptable Limits
03 Aug 2022
What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Acceptable Limits?
I was positive I would never write a rock star romance because it felt too far out of my personal experience. That’s why in an earlier book I made a secondary character a rock star and named him Todd (a name you won’t find on any of the sexy male character lists–until now!) I thought that was the end of our brief acquaintance, although even then he had charisma.
Then I watched an interview with an aging musician who talked about the creative process and I realized I knew everything I needed to know about my particular rock star. He has the money and the fame, but he’s a musician for the sheer joy of creating. It’s an inner driven need that only his love for Lilah can compete with. I can’t imagine him being anything else and I absolutely adore him!
What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?
I’m completely addicted to that sweet sense of satisfaction that comes with a well-crafted HEA and I will read any genre that offers that. (Romance is a pretty natural fit!) I want to share that same feeling with my readers, so yes, I love writing romance.
What books are on your TBR pile right now?
I’ve been tidying up my ebook collection and finding treasures I’d forgotten I had! That’s my TBR list at the moment and it’s embarrassing long…
What scene in your book was your favorite to write?
The steamy basement office scene, definitely!
Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)
I read every book aloud while walking in my driveway as my final editing pass before anyone else sees it. (My neighbors must think I’m crazy!)
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
“The real world is right outside my door.” I don’t feel the need to be that realistic in my books; I’d rather write about the what-if’s!
If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?
Be yourself–it’s always, always worth it! Even when it doesn’t seem like it.
