Writing Wednesday Welcomes Constance Phillips

Welcome Constance! Instead of the same old interview questions, let's change it up and ask the questions we are all dying to know the answers to.

Let's begin!
Snow or Sun?  Definitely Sun. I’m a warm weather gal.

What is the one food that you could not live without? Pasta

Ketchup or mustard? Since I have a real aversion to Ketchup, it has to be mustard. (Yeah, my kids think I’m crazy too.)

Ideal vacation? Anywhere warm, preferably a beach.

When you’re not writing, what do you do to pass the time? Reading or watching movies. It’s all about the story with me.

Out of all The Avengers, who is your favorite? Tough one, but I’m going to go with Iron Man.

Reality TV shows? Or fictional drama? I have a thing for the Reality shows that air on Discovery, History, TLC, etc. I’m a huge Deadliest Catch fan.

Favorite subject in school?  Loved English (Obviously) for the creative writing. I also had a World History teacher who made that subject very fun.

Guilty pleasure? 80s pop music.

Burgers and fries or filet and escargot? Burgers and fries.

Constance is mine kind of lady! You had me at 80s pop music!

Now, for the business. Constance writes wonderful romance stories full of compassion and her latest, All That's Unrealized is no different.

It’s what the doctor ordered for Rhonda Gables, owner of three successful boutiques: four weeks of rest between winning this season’s Retail Project and claiming her prize. Rhonda must decide if being a TV reality show star is worth leaving behind her loved ones, including the increasingly 6 appealing Trevor Collins.

In a month, fashion mogul and reality TV judge Conrad Ryse, of The Retail Project fame, has promised to take Rhonda Gables under his wing and invest in her fledgling career. That’s her grand prize after a winning season on his show. Too bad exhaustion has sent Rhonda out of her city apartment, away from her three successful boutiques, and into her cousin’s guest room for a month of recuperation in her hometown.

She’s on the cusp of everything she’s ever wanted, but what will it cost? Doctor’s orders be damned, she balks at first. But soon Rhonda is both delighted and disconcerted by the attentions of her friend-maybe-lover, Trevor Collins, and the contentment she is surrounded by back home. She must realize all she’s willing to compromise and what her heart truly desires.
