I’ve found a fantastic, new author that is making her debut in the United States. She is already popular in Brazil and Portugal, and has recently released her first New York romantic fairytale novel in the US. Her name is Drica Pinotti, and her new novel is My Crazy (Sick) Love. I was able to talk to Drica about her love of writing, what inspires her, and what future projects she has in store for us.
- Who was your favorite author and how did they influence you?
Drica Pinotti: Jules Verne and Arthur Conan Doyle. Because I was constantly living in a fantasy world. The characters from the Sherlock Holmes series became my imaginary best friends for a long time.
- Do you have a writing routine? What works for you?
Drica Pinotti: I like to write late at night. I start when everything around looks quiet.
- What subjects would you like to write about in future projects?
Drica Pinotti: Always about funny women matters. I am a big fan of chick lit myself. So, I just love to observe girls around me to create my own stories.
My Crazy (Sick) Love is an intelligent, fun New York city romantic fairy tale. Amanda Loeb is a single, smart New York City lawyer nearing her thirtieth birthday. She has it all. Circle of friends, close relationship with her mom and sister. But she holds a secret that could be deadly. She’s a hypochondriac. Her medicine cabinet looks like an A-Z list from all the best doctors in NY. But when Amanda meets Brain Marshall, a handsome restaurant owner, her heard beats with a new illness. Love sickness. As their relationship develops, Amanda learns the ups and downs of love might be her medicine she needed all along.
My Crazy (Sick) Love can be found at Amazon.com.
