Sunday Brunch + Giveaway #1: Josie Wright

Sunday Brunch is a weekly feature for getting to know authors who are new to us at Black Heart Reviews, by asking some quirky, fun questions.

Today, we introduce you to Josie Wright. Her debut novel, That One Night, releases on June 27th, scroll down for more information on that. It sounds good, secret baby good...maybe?? We like the sound of that!

If people were thrown in jail for bad habits, what would be your crime?

Procrastinating. No doubt about it. I can say to my husband that I'm going to take a shower now, two hours later, I still haven't made it to the bathroom. Instead, I watered all the plants, read half a book, talked on the phone and spend time on Facebook.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

You mean writing isn't a superpower?!?! Well, then I would choose mind-reading. Then I would actually know what goes on in some people's head.

Chunky or Creamy?

Creamy, if it's peanut butter. If it's a Speculoos cookies spread, then it has to be crunchy.

Who is your favorite Disney Princess?

Merida from "Brave". She's a tomboy, opinionated and doesn't let anyone tell her who to be or how to behave. Also, she's got the most awesome hair.

If you were a stalker, would you be good at it?

No, I could never stay quiet for long. I talk too much. Besides, sneaking up would be impossible as my joints crack a lot, making me feel like I'm in my 80s instead of my 30s.

You are forced into karaoke, what song do you sing?

Seriously? I have to decide on one song. Ugh. "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks. What shall I's quite fitting.

Godzilla or King Kong?

Godzilla. Mostly because of the traumatic three hours at the movies watching the remake of King Kong. It was August and the A/C was broken. Hell couldn't have been any hotter.

You are an alien with your own spaceship, who do you abduct?

Kiefer Sutherland. No further comments. ;-)

We come to your house for dinner, what are we eating?

Chicken breast filets baked over with cream cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and cheese. Gnocchi. Roasted tomatoes topped with a mix of butter, breadcrumbs, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper. For dessert, I would make some lemon cake with a vanilla frosting.

Pick two celebrities to be your parents.

Bob Dylan and Shirley MacLaine. Bob Dylan because he's the most talented song-writer in the history of music. Shirley MacLaine because she's strong, feisty and a hoot.

Josie Wright has always been a bookworm, spending every free moment with her nose buried in a book. While others were out partying, she spent her evenings with Heathcliff, Sydney Carton or Snape. Romance, fantasy, thrillers - you name it, she read it.

Thanks to the Kindle, she finally arrived in the 21St century and discovered the Indie literature world. Josie has been lost to it ever since. With her love for the written word and her promiscuous feelings for countless book boyfriends, the next logical step was to start writing. The voices in her head and her imaginary friends wanted out to play and so she wrote her debut novel "That One Night", that's to be released early summer 2015. And the good news is, there are more voices and imaginary friend where Ben and Frankie came from.

Josie is a financial expert by day and a writing junkie by night. The rest of the time she's a bit of a hippie, a bit of a goth and many things in between. Josie loves to spend time with her husband when she can tear herself away from her book boyfriends. She loves video games, movies, good food and even better music. She's addicted to chips, long baths and shoes. Oh, and books of course. Definitely books.

Series: That One Series #1
Release Date: June 27, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance

All it takes is just one moment to change the course of your life. For me, it was one perfect night.
I have always had a thing for my brother’s best friend, Ben. When I found him on my parents’ couch, drowning his sorrows in a whiskey bottle, my attempts to comfort him quickly turned into a night of raw and intense passion.
My foolish heart hoped he might feel the same way I do.
But Ben wasn’t there to stay and I woke up the next morning alone with a broken heart.
I attempted to forget the guy with a smile to die for and a touch that sets me on fire.
I thought I was over him.
I thought he was gone forever.
Until, eighteen months later Ben returns and learns my secret. Now, he is hell-bent on winning me back.
He plays dirty.
And he won’t stop until he gets what he wants—me.

But he has secrets of his own.
Secrets that could destroy everything we might have and everything we are.
