Interview with Milda Harris, author of Crashing Prom

What inspired your book, Crashing Prom?
The idea for Crashing Prom came out of wanting to write a prom story. I didn't want to write a typical prom story, though, set in high school. So, I thought: what if you missed your prom, always regretted it, and decided to go back to prom as an adult... And that's the story I went with!

Tell me in one sentence why someone should read the book.
You should read Crashing Prom because it's a fun, romcom read and it will brighten your day!

Do you see yourself in the main character, Avery Rylee?
A little part of me is in all of my characters. Avery is dealing with a major breakup and I've definitely dealt with my share of those. That part of the book was definitely inspired by my own life. I also broke up with a fiancé. It was an awful experience, but luckily I had a cousin in San Diego and I fled there to escape for a weekend. I had the best weekend there too despite the major trauma happening in my life at the time. I swear that I've never crashed a prom, though.

Do you have a prom story from your prom?
I have a couple, but here's the one that popped right into my mind. I remember dancing with my date. We went as friends and there was nothing romantic between us. As we were dancing, though, I looked over my date's shoulder and saw the guy I liked. Our eyes met and our gazes locked. There was a moment of possibility in that look and I've never forgotten it. Then the spell was broken and that was it. Lol! I still think about that moment, though.   

When you're not writing, what are you reading?
I read a ton of YA, NA, and anything chick lit. The last books I read are: I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk and Easy by Tammara Webber.  I'm reading On Dublin Street by Samantha Young next or maybe Bitter Sweet Love by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

What are you working on now?

I'm working on the latest book in my Funeral Crashing series called Adventures in Homicide and Heartbreak. Yes, that's another crashing story. It's a totally separate series, though. It's about a teenage girl who crashes funerals and solves mysteries with the hottest boy in school. The first book in the series is called Adventures in Funeral Crashing (it's a perma-free e-book btw!). Yes, I obviously have an obsession with crashing events! I admit it!
