An Exclusive Interview With Carrie Ann Ryan:

~ with Jillian Stein of Read Love Blog

Oh, how I loved Meadow and Beckham! How did you choose them for this novella?

You always make me SO HAPPY! I adored Meadow and Beckham too. How did I choose them? Because they were horribly secretive. They just showed up on page and kept waving flags saying they were important, then would hide behind the bar and give me weird looks. I didn’t know their backstories until I started outlining their romance and WOAH. I’m glad I listened to my inner demons…I mean thoughts.

If you could dream cast them for a movie, who would you choose?

Scott Eastwood and Natalie Portman :D. *dreamy sighs*

You write in some fabulous fictional worlds. If you could choose a holiday to spend in one of your worlds, what would you chose and how would you spend it?

Well, that’s just mean! Probably my Dante’s Circle world because there are dragons and EVERY paranormal creature ever. LOL. I mean…DRAGONS!

I adore seeing your adventures with your girlfriends on social media. Have you ever written any of their antics into any of your books?

You, Jillian, have made it into a few books. Mostly when there is wine involved! I have a book coming up with a whole trip to Paris. Plus a few trips to Scotland after my trip there this year. I’m blessed with amazing friends who have my back no matter what. I do my best to reflect that in my books.

Can you give us a hint as to what you’re working on now?

At the moment I’m plotting a new series called PROMISE ME about blind dates…with a touch of suspense to make the romance a bit…dangerous.


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
