Q&A with Author RJ Scott:

  1. What part of The Decisions We Make was the most fun to write? The most challenging?

    In Decisions, I loved writing the brotherly teasing and fighting, and the things that make a family strong, like talking, and support and love.

  2. What did you like to read when you were a teenager?

    I loved romance books, and devoured them at a great rate of knots… silhouette romances (het!). I love romances and a big happy ending.

  3. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and how would you use it?

    Flight… I would LOVE to be able to fly… and be invisible… and read people’s thoughts… Damn, do I have to just pick one?

  4. If you could travel back in time and tell the teenage you one thing, what would it be?

    Don’t become a trainee bank manager, be a writer, go to University, learn to write and be what you should be. Also, hell, don’t eat so much chocolate!

  5. Which authors do you enjoy reading?

    LC Chase, Rowan Speedwell, Marie Sexton, Meredith Russell, Diane Adams, Amber Kell, Stephani Hecht… to name but a few.

  6. What season do you like to write your stories in most or do you love writing in all of them and why?

    Autumn (Fall) I LOVE the Autumn, it is my favourite month. Cool, and golden, and with promises of winter…

  7. What would you like young readers to take away from your novels?

    The absolute belief that there is a happy ever after out there for all of us. Some of us are lucky to find it early, some have to wait, but we all deserve that happiness.
