A Conversation with Sophie Stevens, Author of ONE SPRING BREAK (with a giveaway!)

Thanks so much for agreeing to be with us today!

Thanks for having me! I’m excited to be here.

What 5 things should readers know about you?

  1. I hated English and Lit class in high school and college. To me, the only important subjects were math and science. Now all I want to do is read and write. Life is weird.
  2. I come from a very conservative family who doesn’t condone sex in books. Hence, I use a pen name to stay off their radar.
  3. I’m a huge Anne Rice fan. She passed away in December and I’m devastated.
  4. Cats are my spirit animal.
  5. I refuse to write anything without a cup of coffee by my side.

Wow—they really don’t know? Impressive!

How long have you been writing, and what (or who) inspired you to start?

I’ve been writing since 2011. My dad found a short story I wrote in college for my dreaded Lit class and emailed it to me. To my surprise, it wasn’t terrible, and I remembered that the professor actually read it out loud to the class because she enjoyed it so much. I’ve always had storylines playing out in my head, so I decided to put one on paper and it was so much fun, I never stopped.

That’s a inspiration story I’ve never heard before!

What are you working on right now? What can readers look for from you in the next year?

I’ve decided to give Kindle Vella a go and am currently posting two books on that platform. Depth of Field, a quirky young adult novel about a photographer who takes portraits of dead people at a funeral home. It’s not as macabre as it sounds. My other novel on the site, A Summoner in London, is an urban fantasy about a perfumist in London who can summon jinn (genies). They’re both light-hearted reads with spirited, goal-oriented, heroines. Hop on over to Kindle Vella and take a peek.

They both sound interesting! I’ll have to check them out 😊

What are you currently reading, and what are your thoughts about it so far?

I live close to a huge antique mall that sells vintage books. I love the campiness of them, and I adore the smell of old novels. Here’s an excerpt from the one I’m reading, Find This Woman by Richard S. Prather, copyright 1960.

“She was beautiful, out of this world, wonderful. The wide-eyed innocence of a brand new Eve bloomed on her face, but it was on a body that had been improved through two billion years: a body that was sex boiled and distilled till only the essence was left. She had rust-red hair and soft brown eyes, but I had to get back to that incredible body. She was Woman, that’s all, just sex on wheels in high gear and going downhill; no brakes and a hand on the horn.”

You won’t find that kind of kitschy writing in modern novels!

LOL, true!

If you had to “sell” your book in a single Tweet, what would you say?

I’m terrible at selling anything, so I’m just going to use my tag line.

Some spring breaks are unforgettable. Others are undeniably life changing.

That works! Thanks again so much for stopping by!

Flat-ass. Chubby cheeks. Whore.

Pre-med student Rosie Magee has been called every slur imaginable by her obnoxious roommate, a foul-tempered fellow who drops food on the floor and poops wherever he pleases. If the insult thrower didn’t have scarlet feathers and a beak capable of shearing fingers, she’d happily kick him out. But her roommate, a macaw named Baby, belongs to her snotty sister Maria, and according to their mother, if the siblings want room and board, they’re stuck together until graduation. After scrimping and saving, Rosie has finally tucked away enough money to escape from her boyfriend-stealing sister and her evil, yellow-eyed minion for one spring break.

Wholesome. Good guy. Boy next door.

Engineering student, Erik Snider, never believed good guys finish last until his girlfriend has a one-night-stand with a local thespian, Tulsa Lester. She wants to reconcile, but Erik can’t forgive a betrayal so deep. When he learns she’s moved on while he’s still mourning their relationship, his roommate hatches a plan for revenge—ask out the prettiest girl on campus, Maria Magee, and take her to the spring formal his ex will be attending. Though not the vengeful type, Erik is desperate enough to agree in hopes a date with a gorgeous girl will help him heal, but pretty girls have agendas of their own. If he wants an evening with Maria, he’ll have to take care of her demanding macaw for one spring break.

When Baby escapes Erik’s care, Rosie ditches her vacation to help him find her sister’s macaw. As they fight off parrot hungry hawks and navigate trees with flimsy branches, they form a bond that might just verge on love. But nothing comes easily for Rosie. With a man-stealing sister who lives to torment her, and a best friend Tulsa who tore apart Erik’s relationship, happily-ever-after will be anything but smooth sailing.

One spring break brought them together.

An insolent bird…

A hateful sister…

A best friend with secrets…

Will tear them apart.
