Giveaway and Author Interview: The Recruit by Fiona Palmer

 The Recruit
The Recruit (MTG Agencies #1) by Fiona Palmer
From one of Australia’s Queens of Romance comes the debut in a brand new YA series about secrets, strengths, and what lies beneath the surface.
Jasmine Thomas may not be completely normal, but she’s a pretty typical seventeen-year-old girl. She hates the rich mean kids, loves her best friends, and can’t wait to get out of school each day. Her spare time is spent at The Ring — a boxing gym where she practically grew up — learning karate, boxing and street fighting. So, yeah, Jaz can kick some major butt.
Life seems pretty normal until the day Ryan Fletcher enters her gym…mysterious and hot with heaps of bad boy charm. Sure, she checks him out. Who wouldn’t? But what doesn’t show on his gorgeous abs are secrets and lies that dominate his very grown-up world. Now Jaz has to figure out just how far she is willing to go to know more. Could Ryan really be offering the life-fulfilling life path she’s always dreamed of?

interview with Blkosiner's Book Blog
--The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less.
Feisty Jaz, recruited by agency. Action plenty and smouldering romance.

--How did you get the idea for the story?
With the help of a special friend and my own desires for a kick ass female character.
--Which character would you most/least like to have dinner with?
Ryan, because he is divine and he might just save my life.
--If a fairy godmother told you could be put into the world of your favorite book for 24 hours, which book would you pick and why?
Vampire Academy, so maybe I can meet Dimitri.

--Do you need anything to write (music, coffee, etc)? Are there any songs on your playlist- songs that inspired you or that were playing while you wrote The Recruit?
Yes, I love listening to music, much how ‘The Eye of the Tiger’ inspires me to exercise. I listened to Pink, Paramore, Linkin Park, Ministry of Sound – Dance music, Karnivool…just to name a few.

--If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
Flying would be awesome. Especially as I live in the middle of nowhere and travelling/driving is something I do too much of!!

--Besides writing, what do you like to do in your free time?
Watch movies and my favourite TV shows, and read. (all while eating chocolate)
--What is one thing you would tell your 15 year old self?
I’d give her tips on how to dress. I had no idea back then. It was all grunge mind you.

--Is there anything else you want to add or say to your readers?
Just that I hope you enjoy Jaz’s story as much as I enjoyed writing it. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the readers, so thank you. xx
