Interview with Lisa Scott
When not writing, what hobbies do you enjoy? 
I love gardening. My writing productivity plummets when summer arrives.  I have a koi pond and spend my writing breaks out there. If I ever hit it big, I'll hire a garden boy.

What is the strangest real life situation that is in one of your stories?

So many real life situations are in my Flirts! shorts.  I once got locked in the K-Mart outdoor nursery department as the store was closing--and my cell phone was dead. I totally panicked. Luckily, someone saw me jumping and waving for help and got me out before all the employees left.  That story inspired "Holiday Rush" from Holiday Flirts!

When did you start writing?

I knew I wanted to be an author when I got my first creative writing assignment in second grade.  I've done all sorts of writing over the years, but I started writing novels in 2007.

Do you laugh and cry while writing your books?

Yes! I always take that as a good sign.

Favorite book or character you have written?

Oh, so hard to pick.  From my romances,  I do love Jane in "The Hot Girl's Friend." But I also love Chip from my middle grade novel, "School of Charm." I love her voice.

Any advice for those who are just starting out?

You've probably heard it before, but read a lot (especially in the genre you want to write) and write, write, write. Find a writer's group to join. Writing can be a lonely journey, it's great to have support. 

What is your go-to snack?

I am constantly drinking tea while I write.  I love all different kinds.  I'm a very good Teavana customer. 
The Willowdale Series
**These first three short stories come before the two novels
Volume 1: The Willowdale Romance Collection: Three Short Stories
Story 1: A Fine How De Do
Tonya Garcia needs to make a change, desperately. After living on the same street in New York all of her life she’s going to start over. Now that her Nonna is gone it’s not the same anyways. After using a unique system to choose a new location to move to, she leaves. The chief of police welcomes her to the tiny town of Willowdale, North Carolina before she’s barely entered it. Wasn’t that nice? Not. This story is told from Tonya’s point of view only and is told with much humor.
Story 2: A Little Hanky Panky
Jeanne Clark is in the market for a new chef job after tiring of the seniors complaints where she worked serving their meals. When she applies at Willowdale’s one and only hotspot, The Hideaway, she finds there is competition for the job. Brad Larsen. The handsome hunk she hasn’t spoken to since grade school and now they have to work together while competing for the same job. Jeanne and Brad’s story continues in the full novel; Man of the Month.
Story 3: A Perfect Setup
What is Faye Jenkins, owner of the Be Wright Inn, up to? Whatever it is she’s including Tonya Garcia, Jeanne Clark and Kate Riley into her plans. All three girls are determined to do without men for a while. But who says they can’t date a hunk and not mention it? An extremely humorous short story of a very determined mama.
Novel 1: No Foolin'
Kate Riley, lives in the small town of Willowdale, North Carolina. Her job as the school nurse isn't enough to pay off her debts so when an offer comes to pretend to be a girlfriend for a month, how can she refuse? She just has to keep her heart safe from the handsome hunk.

Teague Reynolds is known as T-Rex in Hollywood. Just like his namesake he stomps and shreds everything in his way. Well in his case it's the hearts of the women he dates and dumps. Now he has a secret in Willowdale and will do anything to keep it from the public eye. Having a girlfriend from the same town can only help his cause.

This story was full of unique characters who came to life on the pages of the book. And plenty of misunderstandings, things just are not always as they seem to be. Definitely a page turner that was hard to put down until the final words. There is a couple side stories happening as well.

I read the previous books from Willowdale; The Willowdale Romance Collection Volume 1. Three short stories that introduce the reader to this small town and some of the characters in this story. I personally enjoy series books and would recommend reading those first to have the whole story. Book two in this series is Man of the Month.

Novel 2: Man of the Month
Jeanne Clark loved Brad. Two years ago they had dated for a few weeks until he found out she wanted a family. He didn't. They became best friends and business partners in a catering business. When Jeanne confesses to being lonely, Brad offers to set her up with a date. One a month.

Brad Larsen had to find someone for Jeanne so he could move on as well. They could never be together because she wanted the whole thing; kids, dogs, picket fence. His past led him to believe he wouldn't do well with that. Being the good friend he is, he'll find her the right guy. No problem, right?

Loved this story. The characters jumped out of the pages and pulled me in. The emotions of the characters were easy to feel. This reader had trouble putting it down until the end. Brad and Jeanne's story starts in the Willowdale Romance Volume 1 in A Little Hanky Panky. Jeanne is also in the third book The Perfect Setup. If you enjoy series and knowing the back story you'll enjoy reading those three short stories first. Their friend Tonya still needs her happy ending in the third book, it will be coming out sometime in 2014.

Novel 3: The Real Thing
Tonya Garcia had met Tommy when she first drove into Willowdale over four years ago. He had given her a speeding ticket. They had started dating until he called out the name of his ex-girlfriend, and Tonya's best friend, one night. In bed. While making love. Now they are exes with benefits, only her heart wants more. The reader first meets Tonya in the short story, A Fine Howdy De Do.

Chief Tommy Larsen has the worst luck with women. And he always does the right thing, even when it seems to end up looking like the wrong thing to do. He had thought he might have a second chance with Tonya and then everything fell apart.

Teague Reynolds from No Foolin' is a movie star who married Kate Riley and moved to Willowdale. He is now hosting a special dating reality show that will take place in their town and Tonya is going to be a contestant. Maybe love will finally come to her.

The Flirt stories are short, full stories. Great for that in between reading where you want a sweet romance story but don’t have a lot time. Each story has a connection to the other stories, even if it's just a name or place. Some contain mild language.
The Hot Girl's Friend

They just didn’t plan on getting on so well together.
Beach Flirts!
  Amazon    Smashwords
Once again the author writes five fun filled romantic stories. This book tells of romances while vacationing by the beach. I enjoy the way the author weaves occurrences from the previous story into the next one, usually something unique.
 Ex on the Beach
Heather Parker was on a beach vacation with her family. Single. This should have been her first anniversary as Mrs. Nick Hicks. What could be worse than to be surrounded by your happily married siblings and their children? Having your ex show up on the same beach, that's what!
**Mild language
She's Hot Now
Natalie feels like a new woman...on the outside anyway. Inside she's still the same person who hid from the world. On a beach vacation with a couple of co-workers things change. As one encourages her to move forward and be a new woman, the other one seems to only remind of her of the past.
**Mild language
Girls Just Wanna Have Finn
Anna and her three good friends head out for a beach vacation. Sitting on the beach watching the guys walk by. Then her friends spotted Finn Donahue, a womanizer type of guy. The very kind of guy that Anna wanted nothing to do with. But she could still look without touching, right?
Washed Up
Michael Sullivan was washed up as an actor and his life was on a downhill roll. Then he met Molly Andrews in a rather unconventional way. The press assumed the two were dating and his agent said it would restart his career so a deal was made. He had a pretend girlfriend for the next few weeks. No problem. Wrong. Life is never that easy.
Hot For the Summer
Summer is staying at her friends beach house and working at Scoopy's Diner while she decides what to do with her life. She always enjoyed her summers at the Cape and at Scoopy's. With business slowing down with competition in town, she decides to help revive the diner. And the hottie in town may just help revive her life along the way.
Holiday Flirts!
I really enjoy the Flirt! stories. They are fairly short and quick reads and I enjoy the way the author integrates the characters from one story into another. At times it's something little like one character just popping in on the story and other times it's the friend or relatives story. And there are usually little quirks that add the humor. 
 Spooked By Love
For Marnie James the scariest thing this Halloween for her is considering dating again. When she meets Jeff Williams at a Halloween party her daughter went to, she has to decide if she's willing to date again. Is there a ghost of a chance or will she be too spooked to try?
 Holiday Rush
Amazon    Smashwords 
Lindy Richards loved her fancy clothes and the chic shop she managed. She also loved Christmas. One night a ripped pair of tights changed her life.

Alexander Whitney was managing one of the Save Land stores for his dad. Bidding his time before he could move on to a different city. When there was an emergency involving his store parking lot life got a lot more interesting.
Missing Christmas
Ginny McDonald had told her family she'd be moving from New York to Florida in the first story, Spooked By Love. She was in love with Ryan and his job had him moving. Now it's a few days before Christmas and she's homesick. She misses her family, decorating and snow. And Florida's sunshine didn't have anything Christmas about it. She wanted to go home and there was nothing that Ryan could say or do to changer her mind. Or was there?

Living in Arizona I could fully relate to this story. Away from family and looking at a cactus with lights and Santa hats is far from a Midwest Christmas.
Tingle All The Way
Jessica Richards didn't have the memory of any great Christmas or her sister Lindy's excitement over the holiday. When she called the police on a would be robber, she just ended up ruining a little girls Christmas. Every thing she tried to make it up to Morgan just ended up in a bigger mess.

Charlie Grant was watching his niece and wanted to give her the best Christmas ever. The nosy neighbor ruined that idea. The more the woman tried to make things right...the more he was intrigued with her. Maybe he would have the best Christmas ever.
Giving Up Guys
Three of Ginny's friends were out celebrating New Years Eve when they decided they would give up guys for a month. Ginny and Ryan seemed happy in Florida, but Lori, Claire and Harper seemed to be finding only duds when it came to men.

Lori takes an upholstery class and her resolve for no guys is on shaky ground when the Tom Murphy, the instructor, turns out to be an uber-hottie.

Harper Reese figures she's safe from men when she takes a belly dancing class. Figures that handsome Patrick Dunn is a student too.

Claire Pennington signs up for scuba diving classes, forgetting how she's not fond of swimming. After class she finds a friend in bartender Nate Johnson.

As always Lisa Scott finds a unique way to end the book with a glimpse at the previous couples who met in the other four stories.
 Fairy Tale Flirts!
Amazon    Smashwords
I enjoy the way the author weaves her characters together in these stories. A character from one story will be mentioned in passing in a different one or be at the same place. All interwoven slightly into the stories in some small way.
Cindi Midas life was much different when her parents were alive. She went from having a doting father to being stuck with a hateful stepmother and stepsisters. Cleaning their apartment at Grimm Towers for room and board. She needed a life change. And that changed the day she went to the Jiminy Shoe trunk sale and met Henry Hubbard.

Like what’s a girl to do when she visits her grandmother and finds her in a disheveled state with a tall, dark and handsome man in her apartment? A man befitting his last name, Wolff.
Belle Foster was off to Grimm Towers to build Prince Maxim’s bookshelves, a job her father was working on before his stroke. The mysterious prince stayed hidden because of an accident. Could Belle prove to the elusive prince that life was worth living more than worrying about what people would think of you?
Shawna White wanted to use her singing and dancing talents, like her mother had done as a ballerina. Her widowed stepmother was after husband number three and talked Shaw into being a nanny of her newest husband target Jeremy James, father of seven. Hi ho, hi ho, off to work she did go.

**Mild language and sexual innuendos
 Let Down Your Hair
Rachel was so tired of playing Rapunzel the Princess. Her mother had been making her play in carnival shows for a long time now and her hair was so long that it took four hours to brush and wash each day. One day during the show she noticed a knight in shining armor standing in the back. Perhaps this princess could finally be rescued from her forlorn life.
Wake Me With a Kiss
Aurora Jackson loved Neverland Island and knew her childhood friend, Jordan Donovan, would have loved it as well. She hadn't seen him since she was eleven, but no man seemed to compare to her first crush. She may never get a second chance with Jordan if the prophesy that took her away from him in the first place ever comes true.
Wet and Wild
Elle has traveled with her father and sisters as they performed as water skiers. She's the mermaid and starting to get tired of it. When she notices a hottie in the audience she decides to play hooky for one day. Who would think one day as a landlubber could land her in such a hot spot?
Say My Name
Colleen is determined to help find the man who conned her older sister. Dressing up as sexy as possible she heads to Neverland Island to find a handsome man going under some odd name her sister couldn't quite remember. She found more than she bargained for.

Once again the author takes the stories and brings the characters together in the last story for one last standing ovation of sorts. And she writes the stories with plenty of humor as well. Great short stories that are fast and easy to read and they aren't just filled with fluff.
 Wedding Flirts!
Amazon     Smashwords
Lisa Scott's Flirt! books are full of humor and romance. The fifth story always brings everyone from the first four stories together for a finale, and now and then they even pop in from previous books. Which I personally enjoy when you get to see the people you met come back for a special appearance. Great stories that are also short enough to read when you aren't in the mood for a long novel. They are connected by characters, but standalone so that you can read one and come back for more later.

More Flirts!
These five stories follow the romances of the Carter family.

The problem with that was they never knew if the guys or gals they dated really cared for them or if they were just after the Carter money.

She dresses much different from her usual conservative clothes and hits the bars instead of meeting men at charity balls or her usual outings.

Reunion Flirts! 5 Romantic Short Stories

  1. Thanks for joining us and for writing such fun books, Lisa.
