An Interview with Sandra Edwards
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Sandy, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book The Memory Bouquet. First, where did you get the idea for this trio of stories?
SE:Thanks for having me, Holly!
Actually, I got the idea for The Memory Bouquet’s upcoming sequel (The Lonely Hearts Club) first. I love reunion stories, and anytime I’m brainstorming a new project, my muse tends to wander off in that direction. Once I realized I wanted to write a story about a wedding that would reunite estranged family members and open old wounds, The Memory Bouquet kind of blossomed from there as a way to reveal the past, which feeds the conflicts that come to light as family and friends gather for the wedding of Risa’s (the eldest sister) daughter’s wedding.
HH: What do you like best about each of these sisters and why will readers relate to them?
SE: I love Ginger’s wit, Georgia’s vulnerability, and I admire Risa’s ability to hold her head high when it seems all is lost for her.
HH: Which of the stories did you most enjoy writing?
SE: Honestly, I don’t have a favorite. I enjoy writing about each of the sisters.
HH: Which story was the most challenging to write and why?
SE: Risa’s story was the toughest to write. Mainly because she’s harbored such (unjustified) hatred toward her sister Georgia for so many years. It was oftentimes hard to keep that hatred from running so rampant that there could never be a reconciliation between the two.
HH: What common thread, aside from sisterhood, connects the stories?
SE: I’d have to say the upcoming wedding between Lisa (Risa’s daughter) which takes place in the upcoming book The Lonely Hearts Club.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
SE: Well, I hope to release The Lonely Hearts Club in 2013. I’m currently working on Hot Commodity (Time Brokers: Book 2), Desert Heat (Soul Searchers: Book 3), and Forever For You (sequel to Crazy For You).
HH: How much of your life is spent on your writing career?
SE: I spend a lot of time on writing and writing related activities. Probably 12-14 hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week.
HH: What does it mean to you to be a writer?
SE: Writing comes as natural to me as breathing.
HH: What would we find in your to be read pile right now?
SE: Love Capri Style by Lynn Reynolds and Second Hand Heart by Catherine Ryan Hyde.
HH: What plans do you have for the summer?
SE: I have a boatload of books I need to wrap up. lol.
HH: Thank you!
