Geoducks are for Lovers by Daisy Prescott


What was the spark or initial idea that started your book?

The initial spark happened when some friends were talking about going to a college reunion. Then shortly after I watched Reality Bites. The idea of what happened to those cynical Gen X friends now that they're in their forties sparked the idea for who my characters would be. I've been reading a lot of contemporary romances and while I enjoy New Adult, I thought it would be fun to write a love story where the characters are older, with baggage and complicated pasts but still figuring out their lives.

What was your favorite part of writing this book?

I loved writing the close connections between friends who have known each other for decades. My favorite character is Quinn. He is a composite of several people I've known in my life. I wish he really existed and were my bestie.

So difficult to choose!!! My favorite lines contain spoilers or …

Blurb

Food writer Maggie Marrion is just getting back on her feet after a horrible year, or two, or three. With their twentieth reunion approaching, she invites four of her closest friends from college for a weekend at her beach cabin. What she doesn’t expect is her best friends, artist Quinn Dayton and part-time erotica novelist, Selah Elmore, to play matchmaker. The two plot a surprise that will make the weekend, and her life, a lot more interesting.

Gil Morrow, former grunge musician turned history professor, joins them as Selah’s date for the weekend. After coming face to face with the one who got away, he decides he's waited long enough to get the girl. With the support of old friends, a few wishing rocks, the world’s largest burrowing clam, and a hot lumberjack thrown into the mix, Gil reminds Maggie that forty-something isn’t too old for second chances.

Can we learn to love the life we have and let go of who we expected to be? …

BLURB:

From the author of Her Sky Cowboy comes a sexy new novella about rebellion, redemption, and the healing powers of love and tolerance amid budding global chaos.

Doc Blue has never had it easy. Born a Freak, the offspring of a Vic—a native Victorian—and a Mod—a time traveler from the future—he’s lived on the fringes of society, hiding his true identity and preternatural healing abilities from even his closest friends. His brief support of the Freak rebellion has only left him with even more problems, losing him both his job and one of his greatest allies, the Sky Cowboy, Tucker Gentry. So when Tuck’s kid sister, Lily, ends up blinded in an air skirmish on her way from America to England, Doc jumps at the opportunity to be the one to rescue her and use his powers to mend her wounds.
