Sometimes you've got to kiss a few frogs...
From Orca Books: What planning and research did you do for this book?
You mean apart from the terrible, awful, no good dates I went on in my 20s? <hits head against desk> Okay, I went to the experts, and I interviewed several young women about what it was like to be on internet dating sites. Several of the dates featured in Worst Date Ever were inspired by the real thing. Which is tremendously scary for the human race, if you think about it too long.
Can you guess which date in this book was actually my worst date ever? See below for the reveal...
Melodie's worst date: If you guessed Peter, you're right! My nightmare date included that final take-down scene and the dialogue is almost word for word what I remember. I can still feel the car shaking. Luckily, I had a happy ending, just like Jennie. Met my husband just a few weeks after that Worst Date Ever.
