Exclusive Interview with E.L. Montes
Welcome to Schmexy Girl Book Blog! We are so happy to have you here with us, let’s get started!
1) What made you decide to abbreviate your name when publishing?
Well, it was difficult. I wanted to use my full name SO bad! But, when I wrote Disastrous no one knew I was writing except for my mother and husband. A lot of my co-workers read and follow blogs, I was afraid one of them would find out. I know, I know, like abbreviating the name would make a difference! I guess I was … embarrassed? I’m not sure if that’s the right word. I guess, more insecure. Which I still am. That’s just me, I’ll always be insecure. I guess, to answer your question, I was afraid to have someone that knew me read it and think it sucks and call me a loser. LOL. Yeah, I’m a dork.
You’re not a dork! I think many authors probably feel the same :)
2) Who do you envision as your Marcus DeLuca?
Okay, so originally when the “idea” of Marcus and Mia popped in my head, I thought of Amanda Seyfried as Mia and Jesse Metcalfe as Marcus. BUT the more I wrote their story, the more Marcus and Mia created a life & image of their own. The below two models are ones that are the closest to being my Marcus DeLuca
3) Are your schmexual scenes in Cautious or Disastrous based on an act you wish to perform, have performed or currently engaged in?
