I’m so excited for the release of my new book “The Twelve Step Plan” this week. I had so much fun writing this book and even more fun creating the character of Sadie! My mother always told me not to tell a lie, so I have a little secret to share. Sadie may be fictional, but she has all of the characteristics of one of my dearest friends (who shall remain nameless, but you know who you are, don’t you!)
You see, a while back, she had quite the crush on a celebrity. It bordered on an obsession, actually. And being the high-achiever that she is, my friend was resolved to meet him and I was only to happy to tag along for the ride. I have to admit, we had so much fun planning our crazy schemes and the best part? She actually got to meet the object of her obsession! There are not many people who can say that! And you know what? Even if she never did get to meet him, it wouldn’t have mattered because we had lots of laughs on her quest and made priceless memories for ourselves. You see, we all have obsessions. Some may have them more serious than others, but they still exist. And I honestly believe we have a little bit of Sadie inside all of us, or if we don’t, we should! Absolutely! Because it makes life a lot more interesting.
So, in anticipation of my book release, I welcome you to peek inside my character’s crazy and, hopefully, funny world. I promise you, Sadie Rollins is so worth the look!
Erin Brady is a self-confessed romantic comedy addict who hopes to never find a cure. She spends countless hours re-reading Pride and Prejudice and admits to never getting tired of Darcy’s britches. She loves watching rom-com movies because, when it comes down to it, she can’t get enough of the “girl meets boy and falls in love” stories. Most importantly, she loves to laugh and finds humor in everything from washing dishes to singing karaoke off key!
Ms. Brady writes chick lit novels and enjoys every minute of it. All of her novels follow the lives of women who, mindfully or not, end up pursuing their dreams while making mistakes and learning to laugh (and fall in love) along the way. Erin admits that her inspiration for her characters often comes from her own circle of friends, despite her friends’ protests otherwise.
Currently, Erin Brady has published four novels: And The Winner Is, Shopping Swap, Holiday Gig and One Last Blind Date. Her latest novel, The Twelve-Step Plan, is scheduled for release on February 3, 2015.
For the record, Ms. Brady acknowledges her obsession with celebrities, chocolate, Spanxs and designer shoes. She spent the better part of her life single and looking for love. She’s finally happily married to her Prince Charming but it took her a while (and the kissing of plenty a frog) to get there.
Last but not least, she has several subscriptions to tabloid magazines but mostly under different names although she claims she isn’t afraid to admit it.
