I am very excited to have Danielle Sibarium by the blog today for an interview, as a part of her blog tour for Heart Waves.
Danielle Sibarium is the author of For Always and Heart Waves. Danielle graduated from Farleigh Dickinson University with honors, and currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and three children. You can find her on the web at her website, Twitter, Goodreads, and Facebook.
If one character from Heart Waves and one character from For Always were friends, who would be friends?
The two characters that would be friends are For Always’ Stephanie and Heart Waves’ Jenna. It wasn’t a conscious decision, but they’ve have a lot in common. Both girls deal with insecurities, both have been shunned, laughed at and called names. They’d have a lot to talk about and many tips to share.
If you could travel back in time to any period for a day, where would you go?
I would love to go back to the Renaissance period. I find it a very romantic time. I love the clothing, both men’s and women’s. Who doesn’t love a sword carrying guy in tights and a tunic? And I find the ideas of attending a ball and watching knights joust enthralling. Over all I find the whole period intriguing.
Which character was your favorite to write in Heart Waves?
In general I had a lot of fun writing Heart Waves. While I love to write, it isn’t always fun. For Always, was a labor of love. This was the first time I laughed out loud while writing, or found myself smiling along with the characters. And the one who brought that out most of all was Reece.
What is a book you have read recently and really enjoyed?
Ten Things we Did (and Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynowski.
Could you tell us 5 random facts about you?
1 I was an extra on the Cosby Show
2 I did the Tony Robbins Firewalk
3 I met Derek Jeter
4 I love the Rodeo
5 I believe in angels!
Thanks so much for stopping by Danielle!
About Heart Waves: Jenna Kingsley has a gift. She knows things. With a simple touch she can pick up personal information from jewelry or objects. While at a neighbor’s party, a voice mesmerizes her. Jenna is momentarily frozen as a ring is placed in her hand. White electricity surges through her and a dire prediction is made. “It’s like Romeo and Juliet. You’re going to break my heart.”
From the moment they meet Jenna is enchanted and entranced with Reece Walton. She’s thrilled to learn he’s spending the summer two houses away from hers. Every moment they spend together is magical. But she can’t get the prediction out of her mind. As the summer draws to a close and secrets are revealed, can Jenna get past the fear of being left with a broken heart to live in the moment with Reece or will her fear of being hurt fulfill the prophecy?
