WELCOME TO THE BLOG, ELIZABETH! :)
Where to Find Elizabeth:
TheBookQueen: What inspired the idea for Sassy Boyz?
Elizabeth: No one thing inspired the Sassy Boyz but choreography videos certainly helped. I remember watching Yanish Marshall and Brian Friedman’s version of Breath On Me and I was instantly captivated. Anyone who can watch that and not think it is sexy must have something wrong with them.
TBQ: What do you love most about Ansel? How about Fitch?
E: I love Ansel so much. I love his witty comebacks and courage. I love how he’s not afraid to be himself. I love how he’s willing to fight for what he wants even if the thing he needs to fight is himself.
Fitch is just a dream. He’s so stable and loving and loyal. I mean, who wouldn’t fall in love with him? Right?
TBQ: What part of Fierce and Fabulous was the hardest to write?
E: There were a number of difficult things for me, but one of the hardest was Ansel’s issues with alcohol. I’ve known a few alcoholics but it’s different being inside their mind. I really had a tough time getting that nailed down and I know it’s still not perfect. It is a disease that is so individual, though, so it was important for me to tell Ansel’s story, not a general version. This is how Ansel dealt with it, this is how Ansel moved on. It may not be the same for everyone.
TBQ: If Ansel had a personal theme song that best captures him, what would it be? How about Fitch?
E: LOL! Ansel’s is Britney Spears – Work Bitch. I listened to that song so much while I was writing Fierce and Fabulous because it got me into his head during those scenes where he has to be strong and determined.
Fitch is more difficult. He’s quite subdued. I think Phillip Phillips sound really fits Fitch and the song Home is perfect for his protectiveness.
TBQ: If there's one thing you hope readers take away from this book, what is it?
E: Our differences don’t matter, as long as we love and love with all our hearts.
TBQ: So, so true! Thanks, Elizabeth!
