Authorial Intrusion - Rhonda Stapleton

I’m delighted to introduce my fellow debut author, Rhonda Stapleton, today on Authorial Intrusion.


Felicity Walker believes in true love. That’s why she applies for a gig at the matchmaking company Cupid’s Hollow. But when Felicity gets the job, she learns that she isn’t just a matchmaker…she’s a cupid! (There’s more than one of them, you know.)

Armed with a hot pink, tricked-out PDA infused with the latest in cupid magic (love arrows shot through email), Felicity works to meet her quota of successful matches. But when she bends the rules of cupidity by matching her best friend Maya with three different boys at once, disaster strikes. Felicity needs to come up with a plan to set it all right, pronto, before she gets fired…and before Maya ends up with her heart split in three.

Rhonda Stapleton started writing a few years ago to appease the voices in her head. She has a Master’s degree in English and a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing. Rhonda works as an editor for a legal publishing company and enjoys offering editing workshops. Rhonda lives in Northeast Ohio with her lovely, energetic family, who are more than enough to keep her busy when she’s not writing.

In the twelve minutes of free time she has each day, Rhonda enjoys reading, photography, writing poetry, singing in the shower (and in the car, at work, or basically anywhere that provides oxygen), drinking chai tea, and playing on the Internet.

Thai food or Chinese?
Chinese, yummy! Though I do like Thai food too. Dude, why do I have to choose??? haha

Advice for writers in 5 words or less.
Read, write, lather, rinse, repeat.

What are you reading right now?
I'm getting ready to start the book THE EX GAMES by Jennifer Echols.

In writing, are you a plotter or a plunger?
Total plotter. If I don't know where I'm going, I feel way too nervous and unsure of my story.

Camping or four-star hotel?
OMG no question, it's the hotel. I am not a camping kind of chick.

Do you speak a foreign language?
I know a little Japanese (veeerry little), and a little French.

Pick three words to go on your tombstone.
Sassy! Funny! Deceased!

Five things you would do with $100,000.
1) Get it in 1-dollar bills and roll around nekkid in it. 2) Change money back into manageable bills. 3) Give some of the now-cleaned money to family. 4) Pay off bills! 5) Buy a super-expensive pair of shoes. Yeah, I dream big.

Tell us something weird about you.
I hate blue food and will not eat it. It's psychologically unappealing to me.

Thanks for indulging our curiosity, Rhonda!
