Sexy Saturday: Anne Conley 'The Best Laid Plans of Boys and Men' #erom @AnneConley10

Sexy Saturday with Anne Conley

The Best Laid Plans of Boys and Men tells the story of the whirlwind May/December romance between Taylor and Alexander. While Taylor is completely caught off guard by Alexander’s maturity and the difference between him and every other boy she’s dated, Alexander’s busy trying to figure out how to tell her he’s the lawyer suing her pants off. 

This is a standalone story of approximately 30 thousand words

Interview questions:
1. Describe the perfect setting for writing. Where would you go? Be eating, drinking, snacking on? Would there be music?  
I write best at my desk, honestly.  On pretty days, I'll take my laptop outside, but there's usually too much glare on the screen for that to work well.  I like to munch on stuff while I write, so I typically have a bag of something relatively healthy next to me.  I do listen to music, but I get distracted by lyrics, so it's usually some sort of dance or ambient music, depending on the scene.

2. If you could time travel to any time/place where would it be and why?
This is a hard question... I've always liked the idea of travelling to Ireland, as I'm mostly Irish, but a time?  I don't know... I have always been fascinated with the US during the Prohibition Era, all the women discovering their new-found femininity, while exerting their independence at the same time.  Maybe that's where I'd want to go.  And have a torrid affair with a sexy bootlegger.  Yeah...

3. If you have to pick a favorite for this book, would you rather spend a day with the hero or heroine (if it's a MM tell me which hero, if it's FF tell me which heroine, etc.) and why?
I would choose Alexander, and make him take me dancing.  I love dancing, but my husband only knows his own (very wrong) version of the two-step.  Alexander is a fabulous dancer, and since I made him up completely, the hubbie couldn't go into to big of a jealous pouting fit, can he?

4. Where did the idea for this book come from?
I wrote this story for an anthology I was in several months ago.  I always knew I wanted to release it as a stand-alone, so I re-wrote it, doubled the length, and voila!  I've always wanted to write about a May/December romance, but I couldn't tell you why.  I just have.

5. What's next on your writing schedule?
I have a new series coming this Spring/Summer.  It's a romantic suspense series about the Pierce Securities firm.  Currently, there are six titles planned.  I'm looking forward to it, as the covers will be original art, featuring a new cover model (Devon Ryan).  It's going to have a fresh face (er, torso) on the cover, and will be a slight departure from my normal fare.
