The Real Score Blog Tour: Author Interview

Music has been a central theme in The Real Score, with no less than a boy band as part of the cast. Read on about the author's thoughts on music, fangirling (yay!), and some deets on the sequel novel!

It's interesting how you put up a playlist as inspiration to your chapter titles in The Real Score. How important is music to you when you write? Do you always have a playlist when you write stories?

Music is important to me when writing because it puts me in the mood, especially if the scene is sad or heartbreaking. I don’t have a ‘set’ playlist when writing – I just put my iTunes on shuffle and let randomness take over. But I do make playlists for each story that I write, hoping that the reader could enjoy the songs too just like I did!

What's your greatest fangirl moment?

I’m not a hardcore fangirl because I’m usually shy around the subjects of my fangirling, so I may not have a spectacular story to tell here. But I’d say my greatest fangirl moment was being remembered by the members of the Philippine Volcanoes. My shyness goes out the window with these boys because they are just really, really good people and so down-to-earth! My cousin and I are fans, and we’d message them on Facebook and Twitter and watch their home game. Proof I fangirled hard with them: we brought them cakes and pastries during their training!

With their hundreds of fans, it just feels nice that they know my name and they talk to me. Bonus: sometimes I even get besos! I think I have pictures with most guys on the team. I think it’s also a plus that I’ve met so many good people by being fans of the Volcanoes. :)

What's next for The Real Score? Are you planning to write a series? If so, tell us something about it.

Yes! The Real Score is part of a Gezellig series. Currently working on book #2, which centers on Caitlin’s best friend Lorin, Marcus’ Gezellig bandmate Nigel, and new guy Spence. Book #3 is already outlined and plotted out, and I’ve got a working idea for #4, but let’s see. :)

Do you think that girls and guys who are the best of friends will eventually fall in love (or they can never be just friends)? Why or why not?

This is tricky! I've seen guy and girl best friends who have fallen in love (which I think is what some people hope forfalling in love with your best friend), and I've seen those who haven't. I think it's a very thin line to walk on, so I'd take the middle ground. :)
