Emily Greenwood, Author of A Little Night Mischief
Thanks for having me here today!
Me in 140 characters or less: If I can’t live in a sanitized version of the Regency era that includes running water and decent medical care, I’ll write about it instead.
A LITTLE NIGHT MISCHIEF is the story of Miss Felicity Wilcox, who’s centered her life around running her family’s estate. Unfortunately, it’s just been gambled away by her deadbeat uncle, but Felicity refuses to accept that it’s truly gone. So when the handsome new owner, James Collington, arrives to take possession, she decides she’s going to make it really unappealing for him to stay.
James isn’t going to be easily chased off, though, because he needs Felicity’s estate to help pay a huge family debt. So Felicity has to get pretty creative with her eviction campaign, and her efforts involve odd costumes and midnight adventures. Before long, these two adversaries are finding that they just might be falling in love.
I came up with the concept for A LITTLE NIGHT MISCHIEF when I was playing around with the idea of two dogs + one bone = instant conflict.
The three words that best describe Felicity are determined, creative, and hard-working.
If James had a theme song it would be Mirrors by Justin Timberlake.
Felicity is never without her unusual dresses. Her family’s fallen on hard times, so she’s raided the attic for her clothes. Now she doesn’t have to worry about anyone copying her look
Three things you will never find in James’s pocket: A memento from his brother; a pipe, because smoking would be a waste of time and money; an advice column, because he already knows exactly what he’s going to do
Felicity’s greatest regret is not being able to live up to the future she thinks her mother wanted for her.
I’m inspired by the novels of nineteenth-century Britain, though I doubt anyone would see much resemblance between my books and those stories J Especially love novels by Eloisa James and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
The last book I read that knocked my socks off was I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits.
I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t turned on to reading. As a young child I thought Sendak’s In the Night Kitchen was weirdly fascinating, and being a picky eater, I identified a lot with Bread and Jam for Francis. Later, I read all the Nancy Drew books and every Judy Blume I could find.
When I’m not writing, I like to hang with my family, read, walk, cook, and watch movies.
