Julia London is the award winning, bestselling author of more than thirty romance novels, both historical and contemporary. Her latest novel, Suddenly In Love released this month and as part of the excitement we’re happy to welcome Julia to Ten Questions.
I first came to love Julia by discovering her on Facebook over five years ago. I was fortunate enough to attend a book signing event at the Romance Writers of America convention in 2011 where I got to meet Julia and was introduced to her historical series, The Secrets of Hadley Green. I was hooked on her writing immediately! Whether historical or contemporary, I always end up shedding a few tears, happy and sad after reading one of her fantastic books. Before you pick up your copy of Suddenly In Love (full review here) take a look at what Julia had to say in her Ten Questions.
Ten Questions vol. 2 #10 Julia London
Bookish Devices: What is your favorite word?
Julia London: Man
BD: What is your least favorite word?
JL: Nuclear. It’s amazing how many educated people cannot say that word correctly and it bugs me!
BD: What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
JL: Lots of things, but daily, I’d say running and yoga and reading.
BD: What turns you off?
JL: Rude, entitled people.
BD: What sound or noise do you love?
JL: The sound of summer breezes, especially in the morning. Soft breezes. I know, I know, that’s very gooey.
BD: What sound or noise do you hate?
JL: I don’t hate it, but it makes me cringe — the loud, high female laugh. You know the laugh I’m talking about – it’s like a shriek. It’s like nails on a chalkboard to me, especially in restaurants.
BD: If you could have drinks with any author or literary figure, who would you invite?
JL: Mark Twain!!
BD: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
JL: I’m pretty happy with my profession, so I don’t think I’d consciously choose another. I sometimes eye the UPS guy with a little envy, because I think what a great workout that would be.
BD: What profession would you not like to do?
JL: Be a UPS guy. I think it would also be too hard, LOL. Seriously, I could never have a profession in the health field. I am too much of a weenie.
BD: What would you choose for your last meal?
JL: Probably a cheeseburger with fries and a brownie.
