Interview with Simone Sowood, author of Pierce Me
26 May 2017
What can you tell us about your new release, Pierce Me?
Pierce Me is the story of Gabe’s childhood crush, who appears back in his life years later. Eloise wants to get a unique kind of piercing, and as much as Gabe wants to give her one, he has a better idea in mind. They have a past to overcome before they can find their happily ever after.
What’s the last book you read?
Oh my goodness. I wish I could read more but instead all I seem to do is write. The last book I read was Dr Fake Fiance by Juliana Conners, but that was a couple of weeks ago. I think I’m due for an afternoon of snuggling on the couch and reading!
Who is your favorite couple from literature?
That seems to change every time I read a book! But today, my answer to that would be Drew and Emerie from Vi Keeland’s Ego Maniac because who doesn’t love a hero that would go through all of that for his son?
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest?
What would you want to ask them? Umm, do cover models count as literary? I really want the model from Pierce Me, Leon Scott. My first question would be “please can I touch those unreal abs?”
What’s on your writing desk?
I write at my kitchen table, so all sorts of junk. Right now I can see glasses and mugs, a tv remote, vitamins, a stack of papers and the board game my daughters were playing last night. And a whole bunch of clutter I’m not prepared to admit to.
BAM. You’re a superhero. What’s your superpower?
I want to type at the speed of light! I have so many stories in my head that I need to get out.
What scene in Pierce Me was your favorite to write?
Easy, the scene where Eloise is first sitting in Gabe’s tattoo parlor chair, and he’s checking her for what type of piercing she can get. It’s the first time they’ve seen each other since childhood, but she doesn’t recognize him right away.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
Not really. I guess if I did it would be keep on trucking. But that’s not very sexy.
