Hey Shannyn!! First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! MY FOREVER PLUS ONE sounds AWESOME and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

Thanks for having me!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about the MY FOREVER PLUS ONE and the characters?

My Forever Plus-One is the third book in the Daring Divorcees series, but can be read as a stand alone. The series is based on a group of people who met in a divorce support group and became friends. Now that they’re ready to move on to the next phase in their lives, the support each other in other ways.

This book is about Owen and Evelyn. They’ve known each other longest, having joined the divorce support group first. They slept together once, early on, but then became best friends. They rely on each other for everything important in their lives. Now, they’re thinking about changing the status of that relationship.

What are you working on now?

I currently have 3 proposals out on submission with my agent. One of them that I’m really excited about and I hope if finds a home soon. It’s a Leverage-esque  (like the TV show) romcom series, where a group of people steal art for revenge.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

Evelyn was my favorite character to write in this book. For the most part, she really has her shit together. She’s good at her job and she knows what she wants.
But my favorite character of all time is Jimmy O’Malley. He’s the hero of the 4th O’Leary book Catch Your Breath. That book is the basis for my spinoff series, For Your Love, which is about the OMalley family. Jimmy is a bossy, know-it-all, but he loves his family and friends more than anything.

What is your favorite passages/scenes in MY FOREVER PLUS ONE?

I think my favorite scene is early on in the book. Owen and Evelyn are getting ready to go to their friend Tess’s engagement party, as each other’s plus-one, of course. 
There’s this attraction between them as they notice each other in ways they haven’t in a long time. They drive to the party and there’s joking and flirting. When they dance together, an offhand comment about sleeping together is enough to make them rethink what they are together.

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

I had to do some research about my characters’ jobs. Evelyn is a TV producer, so I relied on my friend Google to help with that. Owen is a firefighter, and luckily for me, I have friends who are firefighters or who are married to one.

Who is your ultimate book boyfriend?

There are so many heroes that make great book boyfriends. I think my top 2 favorite are Roarke from Nora Robert’s In Death series and Ranger from Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series. While I haven’t read all the books in each series, those heroes are men that have stayed with me and when I think about book boyfriends they stand out.

What inspired you to write romance?

This is probably cliché, but Nora Roberts inspired me. I was an English major and a literature snob. I didn’t discover romance until I bought one of Nora’s books and fell in love. Then when I went to buy more by her, I realized she wrote romance. I found my genre and I haven’t looked back.

Lightning Round Questions

What are you reading right now? Or what do you have on your TBR that you’re dying to read?

Red, White, and Royal Blue

What Hogwarts House would the Sorting Hat place you in?

Well, I’ve never actually taken the test to sort myself, but my older daughter swears that I am a Ravenclaw because I rely on my brain and logic for everything in my life. She also said that while Ravenclaws can work well with others, they prefer to be alone (which is also totally me) Then, upon further investigation of Ravenclaw characteristics, I found a list that said Ravenclaws can often be outspoken and bluntly honestYep, Im a Ravenclaw.

Twitter or Facebook?

Twitter always.

Favorite Superhero?


Favorite TV show?

I don’t think I can pick I love too many. But the shows that I will always stop and watch if they’re on are Leverage, Friends, and Gilmore Girls

Sweet or Salty?

Salty most of the time. I love popcorn. But I would never say no to some good chocolate.

Any Phobias?

I’m slightly claustrophobic. Like, I can get in an elevator just fine. But if I’m super confined, I start having a hard time breathing. If I watch a TV show where someone is buried alive, I physically react by taking deep breaths.

2019 Movie you’re most looking forward to?

There are a few Charlie’s Angels, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
In 2020, there’s Birds of Prey and Black Widow that I can’t wait to go see with my daughter.

Thanks so much Shannyn for answering my questions! I can’t wait for everyone to read MY FOREVER PLUS ONE!

About Shannyn:

Shannyn is an occasional English teacher, who also works as a part-time editor while raising her three kids.

Even though she wrote from high school through college (mostly poetry), she’d never considered a career as an author. Writing fell by the wayside as she focused her energy on creating lesson plans and new and fabulous ways to torment her teen students. One group in particular dubbed her “The Torture Master,” a title she carried into motherhood.

After the birth of baby number two, Shannyn resigned from teaching and fell in love with reading romance novels. She read so many books so quickly that her husband teased, “If you’re going to read so many damn books, why don’t you just write one?”

So she did.

That first book is safely buried on her hard drive, but the process set Shannyn on the path to where she is today. The 6-book O’Leary series has wrapped up, as well as 2 Hot & Nerdy new adult trilogies. She’s currently working on her next series.

She is recovering from her Diet Coke addiction, fears putting her foot in her mouth on social media, and has a renewed appreciation for the bad girls of the world.

Shannyn is represented by Frances Black of Literary Counsel.
