Interview with Becky Lower
Why did you write this book?
The entire Cotillion Ball series combines my love of American history with my love of large families. It’s set in the decade leading up to the Civil War, when America was experiencing a lot of firsts and was an exciting period in our history. Even though this new bundle contains the last three books in the series, they can all be read as stand-alones.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I’m pretty much a tried and true romance reader, but I am branching out slowly, into cozy mysteries and some YA books, especially if they’re historical.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’d have to say Laura Ingalls Wilder, although she was not fictitious. But when I was a girl, reading her lively books, seeing the world through Laura’s eyes, I was right alongside her. It wasn’t until years later I realized she was an actual person.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I have a contemporary Christmas novella that will be published later this year, and another American historical, set in southern Ohio and based, in part, on some family lore, which has been contracted for, but I don’t have a release date yet. I just finished a flash first draft of a YA historical, my first time attempting that genre. My heroine is eleven when the Boston Tea Party happens.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Although the Civil War is over, it doesn't signal the end of fighting for the Fitzpatrick family, as the younger siblings come of age to chase their dreams and discover the power of finding the right partners. The tumultuous conclusion to the Cotillion Ball Saga proves that all's fair in love and war. This bundle contains Expressly Yours, Samantha, A Widow’s Salvation and The Forgotten Debutante.
