MBA&M: What was the inspiration behind “Eat,Drink and Be Married”?I wanted to write a novel that explored the heightened emotions that everyone, not just the bride and groom experience at weddings. A wedding is a seminal event in many peoples lives and it brings up so many intense things for everyone.
MBA&M: What was the challenges involved in writing this title?For me the challenge was finishing the final edits as that was when my son was born. Trying to find time where I was free and awake enough to get anything done was tricky.
MBA&M: What relaxes you after a long day of writing and imagining your stories?Playing dinosaurs with my son.
MBA&M: Who do you feel inspired you the most in your writing career?My parents always told me I could be and do and explore anything I wanted and that inspired me creatively.
MBA&M: What is in your TBR pile?and What genre do you enjoyed reading the most?I want to read all the girl with the tattoo books, as I do like reading books that have a dark side as that is so the opposite of what I write. And part of me wants to read 50 shades of grey to see what all the fuss is about:)
MBA&M: If you could step into a book,which book would it be,and why?Anything by Jane Austin! All the swooning and manners and costumes! That would be fun. She also for her time wrote such layered I testing female characters.
MBA&M: What is your favorite “comfort” food?Well, right now I am expecting babe number 2 so bagels and cream cheese is doing wonders! And I never say no to French fries!!

When college friends Kate, Nina and Zoë take holiday from their busy schedules on opposite coasts to join their former roommate, Hannah, for her wedding in Lake Tahoe, they not only bring suitcases packed with what-not-to-wear bridesmaid dresses, but baggage of a more emotional kind.
Supported by a variety of eclectic characters determined to wreck havoc on their carefully organized lives, each woman is forced to come to terms with her past before she walks down the aisle. Zoë must learn how to reveal a vulnerability beneath her bravado before she can finally open her heart. Kate needs to reclaim her identity before she can regain her strut. Nina must heal her own inner child so she can provide for another. Hannah needs to release a ghost in order to recover her spirit.
A bottle of booze, a host of laughs, a hankie or two worth of tears, and seventy-two hours among those who know and love them the most is the perfect recipe for four women to Eat, Drink, and Be Married.
