What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Inspired by the annual Blogging from A to Z April Challenge, my book transforms a series of blog posts from Buttontapper.com into a unique travel guide. Instead of pointing out the typical tourist traps, I wanted to give visitors to the city an insider’s perspective on what makes Montreal so great, as a kind of personal love letter to the city, as well as an informative guide to finding places where locals hang out.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
All of the “characters” in this book are either people in Montreal that I’ve met personally or places I’ve enjoyed visiting during my years living in the city.
About the Author:
Laura Roberts writes about sex, travel and ninjas – though not necessarily in that order.
As the author of the “V for Vixen” sex column, Laura began her career writing about Montrealers’ sexcapades, which have been collected together for her book, THE VIXEN FILES. Blending real-life observations with fictional fantasies, she’s also penned parts 1 and 2 of her serial novel, NAKED MONTREAL, along with the short story collection THE MONTREAL GUIDE TO SEX, saucy poetry volume 69 SEXY HAIKU, and satirical novella NINJAS OF THE 512. She’s currently publishing her latest novel, a sexy murder-mystery entitled THE CASE OF THE CUNNING LINGUIST, as a weekly serial at Jukepop.
Laura lives in an Apocalypse-proof bunker in sunny SoCal with her artist husband and their literary kitties.
