Author Interview - Liv Constantine

Today I'm interview the author(s) of The Last Mrs. Parrish. Did you know that Liv Constantine is a pseudonym for sisters Lynne and Val? Click the link for my full review  and more information about the book. Find out more about the personal lives of authors including their signature drink, favorite decade in fashion history, and the artists that inspire them in my author interview series.

Author I draw inspiration from:

VAL - Agatha Christie. Brilliant and prolific.

LYNNE - Stephen King – when I was receiving rejection after rejection, it was his story that gave me hope. I once read that he’d papered his study with all the rejection letters he received over the years.

Favorite place to read a book:

VAL - Sitting in a comfy easy chair in my conservatory. There are two walls of windows that look out at trees and sky, and the sun pours in. It’s the perfect room.

LYNNE - In my big red cushy chair, with the fireplace roaring, and my dog snuggling next to me on the ottoman. In the summer, I like to read at the beach

VAL - Mr. Darcy

LYNNE - James Bond

VAL - When I read Penmarric by Susan Howatch

LYNNE - I can’t identify a single moment, but I’ve always loved to read, and done well in English. Once the writing bug bit, there was no looking back for me.
