The Insider's Scoop on Lorraine Zago Rosenthal

1. I can type over 100 words per minute. This is a very handy skill for a writer.

2. I have an absurd amount of knowledge about the film industry. Ask me a question about an actor or a movie, and I’ll probably know the answer.

3. I was born and raised in NYC, but I’ve also lived in Florida; Washington, D.C.; and Cincinnati.

4. Whenever Sweet Home Alabama is on TV, I always watch it—with commercials—even though I own the DVD. This is how much I ♥ that movie.

5. When I finish writing a novel, I miss my characters. Seriously. But it’s okay—after they’re gone, I always find more.


Thanks Lorraine for the interesting facts! I can't help envy your 100 words/minute supoer power. I type as slow as a snail ( which is why posting this is taking so so so long, apologies) Anyway, come back tomorrow to find out more about Lorraine's debut, Other Words for Love ( which sounds amazing, no exaggeration needed). It's cute, romantic and I honestly haven't read it YET so I can't say!

Badass Bookie xx
