Our last showing is:
When Mabel's best friend, Amber, drags her along on a double date she finds herself falling for Lance, the obnoxious class clown whom she swore she'd have no interest in. The only problem is, she's not sure if she's really the girl Lance is into, or if, like every other guy she knows, it's really Amber he's after. One thing is clear, if Mabel wants to be the lead in her own love story, she needs to start acting like it.
Hi Rachel and thanks for stopping by!
1. . If you could cast your main characters, who would you choose to play them?
This isn't something I used to think about, but now that I'm on Pinterest I know exactly who I would pick! Colton Hayes would play Lance, love his big smile! And Alice Greczyn would play Mabel. She's so cute and even has the freckles!
2. What would your movie tagline be?
The tagline on the book is "The happiest ending is the one you write yourself." I quite like that. :) I doubt I could come up with something better, but if you want something different. . .How about "Now's the time to steal the spotlight."
3. What was the inspiration for your book?
I heard a song from a musical called Secondary Characters. It was basically about two people who took over the stage while the stars were backstage having a smoke. I loved the idea of giving secondary characters their time in the spotlight, and it made me wonder what it would be like to feel like a secondary character in your own life.
4. What scene from your book would you most love to see played out on-screen?
There's a scene where they go on a double date, a date Mabel wanted nothing to do with but her best friend dragged her along. It's kind of awkward, but funny. Mabel has a great moment where she gets a chance to one-up Lance and leave him tongue-tied.
5. What is your favorite movie?
My favorite movie ever is The Princess Bride. Loved the book, too. It's filled with such wonderful characters. It has action, humor, true love. What more could you ask for?
6. Have you ever been to a drive-in?
I haven't, but I'd love to! Unfortunately, we don't have any in our area.
