The saucy ladies of Riverina Romantics are totally stoked because our own Eden Summers has recently learned that her story, Concealed Desire, will be published by Etopia Press! That's right our girl has made the big time!!
Eden has made it her personal goal this past year of making writing her priority and boy did it pay off in a big, big way. While you might know Eden from her writing on the blog we thought it would be fun for you all to get to know Eden as an author. So for the next few months we will be posting mini-interviews so you can get to know her up close and personal and see just how she has gone from a kick ass blogger to an awesome author. So without further ado here is the one, the only amazing Eden Summers! We love you girlfriend!!
So this week we are going to just dip our toes in Eden's waters a bit and take a peek into her personal life. Now we did read somewhere that she thinks we are going to go easy on her with these interviews so game on sister, we are thinking that we will be revamping our questions in the next rounds a bit. *grin*
RR: Welcome Eden! It's surreal to actually be interviewing you today! We need to party we know the vodka is around here somewhere. ;)
Eden: Thank you so much ladies. And I look forward to you trying to test me with your future questions :p
RR: So tell us where in this big old world are are you from?
Eden: I live in a regional city in New South Wales – Australia, called Wagga Wagga. The name actually means 'many crows'. We don't have a hell of a lot of things to do here, but I love where I live.
RR: Do you have a family? Children? Pets?
Eden: I’m extremely happily married to my soul mate and we have two young boys who keep us on our toes. The moodiest male in the house is Doug our cat (my husband named him). We also have two crazy eyed dogs. Our Border Collie Ellie, has one blue eye and one brown and our Blue Heeler was attacked by another dog last year and lost her sight in one eye.
RR: Has your hubby been helpful when it comes to research for your steamy scenes?
Eden: *snort* I have a whole blog post I’m organising to discuss this topic and my husband’s refusal to help me with research. So to give you the short answer – No, he does not help AT ALL. But he would get a big chuckle out of your question.
**Check out Eden's hilarious post on just this subject here.**
RR: Tell us you favorite color.
RR: Snacks, are you feeling salty or sweet?
Eden: If I say ‘salty’ it makes me sound dirty – but I’m a fan of both depending on the will of my cravings.
RR: What's it going to be chocolate or caramel?
Eden: Definitely chocolate. I don’t like caramel at all.
RR: Beverage of choice, coffee or soda?
Eden: Bit of both. I have to have at least one coffee a day, but I love Coke too, especially McDonald's Coke.
RR: What is your dream meal?
Eden: Roast lamb with baked vegis and a HEAP of gravy. I also love Chinese food and my nan's Polish Chicken Noodle Soup.
RR: What is your favorite cocktail? Because you know cocktails are very important here!
Eden: Wagga isn’t really known for its cocktails, so I haven’t tried many but I did have a Midori daiquiri in a fishbowl last time I ventured out for a night on the town. It was awesome.
RR: Ah yes the fishbowl, go big or go home. That's our girl! Thanks for shooting the breeze with us today Eden and we'll catch up with you again for Part 2!
Eden: I look forward to it my saucy wenches.
