El Templo #41 (agosto 2014) por Carlota Echevarría


Your latest novel is Better Off Friends. What do you like the most about it? Which aspect of it makes you feel more proud?

My favorite part of Better Off Friends is the banter between Macallan and Levi at the beginning of every chapter. I think you can really tell a lot about a relationship from simply hearing two people talk to each other. It was a lot of fun to write, but I think why I’m so proud of it is because I never thought I would get away with it! I knew if I told my editor, “So I’m going to open my book with dialogue in different fonts and the reader won’t know who’s talking at first…” he’d think I was crazy. Fortunately, I just put in the book and he loved it!

Both The Lonely Hearts Club and Take A Bow show your love for music. Which part of you can we find in Better off Friends?

I decided, almost on a whim, to set Better Off Friends in the state of Wisconsin where I’m originally from. So much of my childhood, and favorite things about growing up in Wisconsin, ended up popping up throughout the book (mostly the food and I also put a lot of inside nods to my favorite American football team, the Green Bay Packers). Probably the biggest influence was the character of Uncle Adam, he’s heavily influence by the relationship that I have with my Uncle Peter. My father was very proud that I did that.

Why have you decided to continue Penny Lane's story now, five years after publishing The Lonely Hearts Club?

I’ve wanted to write a sequel since I finished writing The Lonely Hearts Club. I feel out of all my books, that one needs a sequel the most. Since The Lonely Hearts Club is all about putting yourself and your friends first, the question for the sequel really is, what happens when you get a boyfriend? How do you balance your friends and a guy? The reason it took so long was that I was under contract for other books. Last summer I realized it was now or never and began working on the sequel!

How did you become a Beatles fan? Did it run in the family as in Penny's case?

Unfortunately, my parents aren’t huge Beatles fans. The Beatles always crept into my life growing up: we sang Beatles songs during my music class at school, I was taught Beatles songs on the piano and clarinet. I got a few Beatles CDs as a teen and couldn’t believe how many of their songs I already knew. Then I went to college and studied abroad in London, did the whole Beatles walking tour (including a walk on the infamous Abbey Road zebra crossing) and became officially obsessed!
