Inside the Author with 20 Questions: Carrie Aarons



1. What is one thing about you that would surprise us?
From the ages of 4 to 18 I was a competitive gymnast, and some of my records in state competitions still stand today.

2. What would an ideal day be for you?
A morning walk on the canal by my house with my husband and dog, followed by a late breakfast of lattes and a bagel with whitefish. During the afternoon, I’d be hanging out by the pool with a good book, getting a tan. And at night, delicious takeout at home with my husband, a good glass of white wine and a Netflix marathon. The perfect day.

3. What is your favorite curse word?
Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck.

4. What is your favorite movie?
Steel Magnolias or The Cutting Edge.

5. What is your favorite indulgence?
White chocolate, especially the Hershey’s Cookies and Cream bars.

6. What profession would you not like to do?
Anything involving math, I’m fucking terrible at math.

7. Who is your celebrity crush?
Ryan Reynolds.

8. What is your FB relationship status (single, married, it’s complicated)?

9. What is your biggest phobia?
I am deathly afraid of birds. And roller coasters.

10. What are your favorite foods?
Sushi and pizza. And ice cream. The three essential food groups.

11. What are your least favorite foods?
I can’t eat any raw vegetables due to the pesticides sprayed on them or the way they’re grown. My throat and lips swell up like balloons.

12. You are at a concert, who are you with and who are you seeing?
My hubs, and Bruce Springsteen! The Boss!

13. What is your favorite quote?
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”

“Some things tie your life together, slender threads and things to treasure. Days like that should last and last and last.”

14. What is your all-time favorite book?
It is so cliche, but I’m a sucker for Pride & Prejudice. It’s the book that made me fall in love with both romance and reading. Either that or the Harry Potter series!

15. If you could hang out one day with your favorite writer, who would it be and what would you do?
Jodi Picoult, and I’d ask her a zillion and one questions about how she develops her books.

16. Out of your male characters in your books who would you marry, kill, fuck?
Marry – Owen Axel
Fuck – Killian Ramsey
Kill – Parker Avery

17. Out of your female characters in your books who would you marry, kill, fuck?
Marry  – Minka Braxton
Fuck – Kelsey O’Brien
Kill – Chloe Trabucco

18. What word or words do you like to read in a book (can pertain to describing anything or just in general)?
I love the way authors describe eyes. I believe it when Poe said the eyes are the window to the soul, because as a reader I can truly feel the emotions going through the character when their eyes are described.

19. What word or words do you not like to read in a book (can pertain to describing anything or just in general)?
I dislike anything too unrealistic in my world. If dirty talk in a book sounds straight out of a porno, I’m a little turned off. I’m all for a little dirty talk in the bedroom, but real life couples don’t typically speak that way and I like to write my characters as if they existed in my world.

20. Who is your favorite Star Wars character?
Padme Amidala.
