Interview With Melissa Baldwin

Q: Where did the idea for the book come from?
A: See You Soon Broadway was inspired by two amazing women- the characters of Maris and Georgie are inspired by my grandmothers’. They were strong, goal-oriented women and always followed their dreams.

Q: Who is your favorite character and why?
A: I really enjoy all of the characters. I loved both Georgie and Beatrice- they’re both really supportive friends and they have amazing personalities. I also enjoy writing the hot book boyfriends.

Q: What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
A: I have to have music or some kind of background noise while I write. ( Silence is not golden). I usually write late at night after my darling husband and darling daughter are asleep.

Q: Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
A: I do both. I start with an outline to get me moving, but I find that as I’m writing my mind takes me away from it.

Q: Tell us in one sentence why we should read your book.
A: They are lighthearted and fun. Real life can be serious enough so my books are a great escape.

Q: What advice would you give a new author entering the self-publishing arena?
A: Keep pushing through, no matter what is thrown at you. Just keep writing and keep trying.

Q: Are you working on anything new right now?
A: I am working on my 4th novel- it will be a stand alone with brand new characters. I have also started the outline and first chapter of the next book in the Event to Remember series. I’m really excited about both of my new projects.

Q: What is your favorite book of all time?
A: This is such a hard question. I really love anything by Sophie Kinsella and Jane Green. And of course the Twilight series.

Q: Each author has his or her own inspiring journey. How did you begin writing?
A: I always loved to write. A few years ago I was diagnosed with secondary infertility- I was devastated when my daughter started school. I knew I had to find something to do that I love. I started my first novel years ago and finally followed through and completed it last year. Once I finished that I realized that writing is my true passion. I can’t wait to create and bring more characters to life.

Q: Besides writing, do you have any other passions?
A: My family, traveling, fitness, yoga.
