An Exclusive Interview with Carly Phillips

Can you tell us why or how you chose to write about this couple for your novella?

The book before JUST ONE WISH was Dash Kingston’s story (JUST ONE SPARK) and we met the band members. Since Dash fell in love with Cassidy Forrester, a band mate’s sister, it made sense to write Axel’s story since we’ve already met him as a protective brother. I was excited to tell his story!

Do you do anything to treat yourself when you finish writing a book?

Yes. I start another book! Kidding, sort of. I take a week or two off to clear my head.

If someone were to narrate your life, who would you want the narrator to be and why?

Jennifer Garner because I love her and she doesn’t take herself or life too seriously. At least on the outside.

What one piece of advice would you give an aspiring writer?

Be prepared to ride waves. Sometimes the market is solid with what you write and sometimes it’s not. Just keep writing and learning and enjoying when you can.

Can you give us a few lines from your work in progress?

Nick got his first real look at her daughter. Blonde hair like Aurora’s, a little curlier and more out of control, framed her tiny face. Her features were delicate and she was adorable, not that he had much experience with kids. And her eyes …

His breath left him in a rush as he took in those indigo orbs so common in all branches of the Dare family. “How … how old is she?” he managed to ask.

Aurora had gone pale. “She’s five,” she whispered.

Nick didn’t need to do the math. The evidence was right in front of him.

“Why’s the stranger inside? Didn’t you tell me about stranger danger?” Leah asked.

“He’s not a stranger, honey …” Just One Dare, coming 4/18/22
