Interview with P.G. Forte, author of Finders Keepers

If someone looked at your browsing history right now, what kind of
things would we find.

Cremation urns, cookie recipes, "how to plant coconuts on lava", "the battle of the Oak King and Holly King", pitbulls, bamboo beach houses, ho'opono.

If you could write about any subject that is near and dear to your heart, what would it be and why?

I want to write a humorous book about dealing with dementia. Because the people who are providing care for someone like that need all the humor they can get.

Do you have a favorite song, album, or playlist to write to?
Product Details
It changes with every book...or at least with every series.

What was the first thing you did after the debut of the first book you wrote?

I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't do too much. I was still too much in shock.

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Song lyrics. Is it so hard to write a song that makes sense? Or one in which the tenses aren't constantly changing? My kids frequently beg me not to listen to the words, but I tell them that if the words aren't supposed to make sense they shouldn't be there.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Spoiling my dog.

What was your favorite book as a teen?
On the Night of the Seventh Moon, by Victoria Holt, These Old Shades, by Georgette Heyer, The Lord of the Rings, by JRR Tolkien

What book are you reading right now?
With Strings Attached by Kelly Jamieson, Nobody's Angel by Stacy Gail and What a Girl Wants by Selena Robins. It's been a slow month. I have a lot of catching up to do. :)

Optional questions :)

Favorite Meal: either butternut squash ravioli at Checkers in Calistoga or the tan-tan noodles at Long Life Veggie House in Berkeley.

Favorite Drink (alcoholic/non-alcoholic) Coffee? Wine? I have to choose? No.

Sweet or Salty snacks? Really hate choosing. I can't imagine life without either one.

All time favorite movie The Butcher's Wife. It's sexy, funny, paranormal and set partially in New York City. The plot is complicated as hell and all the characters are flawed. I love it!

Best book to movie adaption

Well, that depends. I thought the first LOTR movie was amazing in that it looked just exactly the way I'd always imagined it. Of course, I feel the same could be said of most adaptations of Pride and Prejudice. One movie that I thought was vastly superior to the book is The Natural. Loved the movie, hated the book.

Worst book to movie adaption
Almost all of them. The more I love a book, the more likely it is that I'll be disappointed with the movie. I'm a purist. I sit there in the theater grousing, "That's not how that line goes!"
P.G. Forte's bio

Love without Limits, Romance without Rules! Life's more fun when you play outside the lines.

I wrote my first serialized story when I was still in my teens. The sexy, adventure tales were very popular at my oh-so-proper, all girls, Catholic High School, where they helped to liven up otherwise dull classes.

Even if my teachers didn't always think so.

Amazon's P. G. Forte PageA lot of years have passed since then, but I'm still at it, penning novels and novellas in the romantic suspense, psychic fiction and erotic romance and paranormal genres.

Originally a Jersey Girl, I currently reside on the Extreme Left Coast. When I'm not pestering my husband for his help in researching scenes for my books, or being entertained by my two vastly amusing adult children, I can be found serving the needs and whims of either my characters or my cats.

It's a thankless job, but someone's gotta do it.
