About the Author
Each of Andrea Boyd’s series represents a different genre but all fall into the category of romance. All offer an element of her own brand of humor. And all are a tribute to God.
Besides writing, she loves spending time with her family, quilting, going to car shows, and driving around in her 1968 Barracuda convertible.
Andrea lives with her husband, Tommy, and at least a couple of cats in York County, SC.
1a. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I was told at the age of nine that it would never happen because of a health issue, but I wanted to be a momma. With a faith that only a child could possess, I prayed, and God’s answer for me was yes, three times. My children were my priority, until one day they were grown. They moved out, and I said, “What now, God?” And he said, “Write!” So I did.
1b. Did becoming an author ever cross your mind?
No. But looking back, it should have. I have pages filled with story ideas and dreams I’ve had over the years, but at the time when I was writing these things down it felt like nothing more than a hobby.
2a. Who was the hardest character to write in Irresistibly Yours?
Izzy Tanner, who will get her own story later. Izzy is the sister to the main character, Vivian Emerson. They were raised by the same parents, shared the same background, but Izzy is nothing like her sister, and I couldn’t figure out why. Then she told me. Oh. She has been talking to me almost non-stop since I started writing Irresistibly Yours, and I have two more books to write in between this one and hers!
2a. The easiest?
Bo Manning, most likely because I dreamed him up before I knew he would end up in a book.
3. What inspired the idea for Irresistibly Yours?
I think anyone who has suffered through the ending of a troubled marriage will at some point think, “I never want to go through that again.” Then sometimes God sends someone else along who wrecks that plan to remain single.
4. What do you want readers to take away from reading Irresistibly Yours?
Trust God for your future. His plan is always the best.
5a. What is your current WIP? I’m working on the second book in this series, Persuaded.
5b. What can you tell us about it?
Persuaded is loosely based on Jane Austen’s Persuasion. The main character, Felicity Sutton, is a friend of Bo and Vivian’s.
6. When you are not writing, what other “hats” do you wear?
I’m a Gigi to two grandsons, I quilt, and I restore classic cars. And odd combination, I know.
