The Tofu-Eating Spice Girls Fan Also Known as Jessica Brody

Bonjour everyone! So excited to be part of the blog! Sadly, everything Alyson Noel said about me in Monday's post is true...even the part about the Spice Girls. And yes, I did attend their reunion tour last year. And yes, I did know all the lyrics. And yes, I was the oldest person there.

But on a less embarrassing note, I'll gladly challenge Greg to a friendly game of Guitar Hero any day! Bring it!

I would tell you a little bit about my new book, but I always find my book trailers do a much better job. After all, I spend MONTHS producing them! So check out the trailer for The Karma Club below featuring a cameo appearance by Deepak Chopra!

And here's some juicy (well, kinda) details about me:

1) Where would you like to live?

Anywhere that would make a great setting for a book. I'd love to live somewhere for six months, research the book, write it there and then move on. My husband is INSISTING that Hawaii would make the best location for my next one :)

2) What is your idea of earthly happiness?

Red Velvet Cupcakes. They are seriously God's gift to woman...or else God's best played practical joke!

3) Who are your favorite characters in history?

For the longest time I said Anne Boleyn or Marie Antoinette. They both fascinated me. But now, after watching a ridiculous amount of Tudors on Showtime, I started reading more about the fifth wife of Henry VIII, Katherine Howard and she's starting to fascinate me too. She really did end get the short end of the stick. I think more than any of his other wives.

4) The quality you most admire in a man?

The ability to live with a writer...particularly when she's in the middle of Act 2 of her latest book. It's like living with a perpetual tornado warning.

5) Who would you have liked to be?

Stephenie Meyer. Or at least I would have liked to have her bank account.

Thanks everyone for welcoming me with such open arms!

Welcome, Jessica :)

And good luck for The Karma Club's release!!

Welcome Jessica! I'm also a big fan. Love the women in history you are fascinated with and it is so true that the best quality in a man is being able to live with a writer. Lol, my poor husband. We should both move to Hawaii to reward them and then we can have a writer's group there. Who else is in?

Alyson Noel said...

Welcome Jessica- So sorry I outted your (not-so) well kept Spice Girls secret! And I'm totally in on Stephanie's Hawaiian retreat idea! :)
