Interview with Vanessa Waltz, author of Faked

06 Oct 2020

What can you tell us about your new release, Faked?

Faked is a brother’s best friend and fake fiancé romance on steroids. It’s about a girl who is desperate to escape an arranged marriage to a member of a violent MC. She is forced into a fake engagement with a very jealous/possessive hero, who has known her since she was a child. It’s definitely one of my more emotional books. Lots of angst and unrequited love.

What books are currently on your nightstand?

My books. Haha! I generally don’t buy a lot of paperbacks.

What advice would you give your teenage self?

Don’t take school so seriously! You’ll forget most it by the time you’re thirty.

If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?

Singing and/or playing the piano.

What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?

It used to be karaoke, outdoor activities, time with my family, etc. but I’ve had to redefine that in the shutdown. I take pleasure in the little things–the things we take for granted like sunshine and fresh air. I have to because everything is closed.

What scene in Faked was your favorite to write?

The opening chapter is always fun.
