Interview with Tessa Bailey, author of Protecting What’s His! #FMBAuthor

Holly: Hi! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself? :)

Tessa Bailey: My name is Tessa Bailey. I’m 29-years-old. And I’m a hummus addict. I live in Brooklyn, New York with my husband and young daughter. Protecting What’s His is my first published work :)

Holly: What do you do when you are not writing?

Tessa Bailey: I’m with my baby girl or working part-time for my father’s construction company. I love a good night out with my friends in Manhattan. Cocktails are usually involved.

Holly: Can you tell us, in your own words, a little about your book?

Tessa Bailey: “To steal or not to steal?” is the opening line of the book. Ginger, our mostly fearless heroine is deciding whether or not to steal fifty-thousand dollars from her passed-out stripper mother. Ultimately, she decides to take the cash (and her little sister, Willa) on the run to Chicago. She thinks she’s gotten away with it until she meets homicide cop and sexy new neighbor, Lieutenant Derek Tyler.

Holly: Can you tell us about your main character?

Tessa Bailey: Ginger: A bombshell who doesn’t take anyone’s shit. She grew up rough in Nashville, bartending to support herself and her sister. She’s been presented with an opportunity to make a better life and although she’s an honest, hard-working person, she decides to take it.
Derek:  A sharp, possessive, potty-mouthed, alpha-male who falls for Ginger the second he sees her and never wavers in his pursuit of her.

Holly: Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?

Tessa Bailey: In this case, Ginger came to me first and I built the plot around her. It works this way for me most of the time. Characters are what we remember when a book ends.

Holly: Are you working on anything at the moment?

Tessa Bailey: Yes, quite a lot. Since Protecting What’s His released, I’ve turned in #2 in the Line of Duty series, which is about a hot shot hostage negotiator who falls for his mentor’s daughter. I’ve also written a novella and planning on starting a new project this week!

Holly: How much of you or people you know do you think make it into the characters in your novel(s)?

Tessa Bailey: A lot – in terms of the female characters. My girlfriends inspire a lot of the banter between girls. Even some of the situations/predicaments my characters find themselves in have happened to my friends in real life.

Holly: If you could live in the world you have created, would you? If no, why not?

Tessa Bailey: A world where sexy, emotionally complicated alpha-males walk around shirtless and I eat chocolate all day? Try and stop me!

Random Quickies!

Holly: Pepsi or coke?

Tessa Bailey: Coke

Holly: Favorite kind of chocolate?

Tessa Bailey: Milk chocolate with almonds

Holly: Cats or dogs?

Tessa Bailey: Big ‘ol slobbery dogs

Holly: Do you read more than you write?

Tessa Bailey: No – I write way more.

Holly: Favorite movie?

Tessa Bailey: The Sandlot

Holly: Favorite book to movie?

Tessa Bailey: The Princess Bride
