When Lyric Met LimerickI had the pleasure of *meeting* Dawn Cahill when she took part in my blog tour for Hungry for Home. Dawn writes Hot Topic Fiction, so we’re kindred writing spirits. I’m very pleased to welcome Dawn and Luna Raquelle (the heroine from Dawn’s new release) to my blog today. Dawn has graciously offered to give away one ebook copy of When Lyric Met Limerick. Just ask Luna a question in the comments below to be entered to win.

And now, here’s Dawn …

Today I’m interviewing the fabulous Luna Raquelle, dancer and poet extraordinaire – Howard’s love interest in When Lyric Met Limerick. She’s visiting us from the pages of my novelette, released just this month.

Luna, her blond hair wound in a loose knot on her head, sits on my living room sofa and takes a sip of freshly-steeped Chai tea.

DVC: Hi Luna. I’m so glad you could visit with me and my readers today.

Luna: {sits back, flinging one thin leg over the other. The steam from the tea forms a gauzy veil around her face.} Thanks. I’m happy to be here. This tea is delicious.

DVC: I love your purple leotard and colorful peasant skirt.  Is purple your favorite color?

Luna: No, pink is.

DVC: Then you must love my book’s cover. {holds up her book} Not only is it pink, it shows a couple holding hands, which leads to the question: Are you Lyric, or Limerick?

Luna: {chuckles} I’m Limerick. Howard is Lyric.

DVC: Tell us more about your love for limericks.

Luna: When I was a child, my mom read me rhymes at bedtime. I grew up on Dr Seuss, Shel Silverstein, and Ogden Nash. Eventually I started to wonder if I could write a funny rhyme, too. My first few attempts were pathetic. The cadence was all wrong, and they didn’t exactly rhyme.

DVC: But now you’re a pro.

Luna: Well, it took a lot of practice. Once I learned the importance of cadence, I was off and running.

DVC: You’re also an accomplished dancer. If you could only do one the rest of your life – limericks or dance – which would you choose? And why?

Luna: {squints into the distance, then meets my gaze} Limericks. Because even though my body will age, my mind doesn’t have to.

DVC: Now about Howard…

Luna: {ducks her head and giggles}

DVC: What was your very first impression of him when he approached your table that fateful day at Pike’s Place Market?

Luna: I didn’t see him at first. Then I looked up to see this cute guy checking me out. I knew he wasn’t there for a personalized limerick, but he tried oh-so-hard to pretend he was!

DVC: Howard seems like the daredevil type, a risk taker. What drew you to him?

Luna: {wrinkles her brow in thought} I’d say it’s his charming tendency to make me laugh at the oddest times. Without even trying. And the fact that we think alike. He makes up lyrics in his head, I make up limericks.

DVC: Unfortunately for Howard, you already had a boyfriend at the time. Were you happy in that relationship?

Luna: I hadn’t been for a long time, but I was afraid to break up with him because he had a temper. Howard was a breath of fresh air.

DVC: But he was also a thief and a liar.

Luna: {shrugs} I’m no angel either. But he promised me he’d never do anything to land himself in jail again. And I believe him.

DVC: What was the moment you knew he was the one?

Luna: That’s easy. The first time he called me Luna Tunes, I knew he was the one.

When Lyric Met Limerick~About When Lyric Met Limerick

It’s 1983. She’s a winsome poetess looking for work. He’s a moody songwriter asking for trouble. When their lives collide, explosions are bound to follow.

There’s only one problem.

He attracts trouble like Pike Place Market attracts tourists. Why would smart, gifted Luna want to be with a lying, thieving dreamer like him?

But without Luna, Howard faces a future as bleak as a Seattle winter. Will God give him a second chance to win the girl of his dreams?

  2. Luna – I love Howard’s nickname for you! He sounds like a keeper!

    Since Howard is a lyricist, I’m wondering if either of you are musical? Do you sing or play any instruments? Who puts Howard’s words to music?

    And Dawn – I just wanted to mention that I LOVE the cover for your book! I’ve got it downloaded and can’t wait to read it!

    Thanks for introducing Luna to us!

    1. Dear Readers – I (Luna) love to dance to music. I always wished I could perform it too. It’s one of the things I admire in Howard aka Declan Decker. He’s such an amazing songwriter! He can do lyrics and melody. He and his bandmates get together into the wee hours of the night, hammering out the perfect melodies and harmonies. Then they sleep all day! Just a typical day/night in a rocker’s life!

  4. I usually stick to longer stories/novels, but the title and premise had me interested and then hooked. Also, I am from the Seattle area. What a fun bonus!
