As you may know, Emily’s Someone Else’s Fairytale was the first and only chicklit I have read (You can find my review here). And, she writes fantasy and science fiction besides chicklit! I have no idea what was going on in my mind, LOL. But, I seem to have liked the book, so I was quite interested in finding out more about this wonderful and multi-talented writer. Here’s a tidbit I learned from talking to her. She knows Orson Scott Card. Yes, personally! So, lets dive in to find out more!
Interview with author Emily Mah Tippetts
Describe your books? What genre would you classify it into?
I write light romance or chick lit, which to me means I do happy endings, and thus spend most of my writing time trying to devise twists and turns that will keep the reader interested and an ending the audience wants, but not in the way they expect. Those are the ideals I strive for, at least.
How did you come up with the idea for Someone Else’s Fairytale?
I was browsing entertainment headlines and not really understanding what all the hype was about. It occurred to me that if I got hit on by a celebrity, that could complicate my life, and that was the genesis of this idea, an ironic take on fairytales.
