Pitch Wars Interviews with Suzanne Marie, Lisa Kay Houghton, and their mentor, Brighton Walsh

Welcome to the Pitch Wars Team Interviews by Marnise Nicole Bringing you a closer look at each Pitch War Team and their project. Be sure to comment with support, comments, and questions. Meet Suzanne Marie, Lisa Kay Houghton, and their mentor, Brighton Walsh Team: We are the Cunning Linguists of Team BrightOnes   Brighton Walsh (Mentor), tell us a little about yourself.                         Helloooooooo! I’m Brighton, and I enjoy quiet, candlelit dinners, barefoot walks on the beach, and every dessert I’ve ever come across. (Okay, you got me…only one of those is actually true.) I spend every spare second I have reading, and unlike my two awesome mentees, I rarely (if ever) venture away from romance. My oldest kid just asked me why the other day, and I’ll tell you what I told him: because I like to get lost in other people’s love stories, and there’s enough heartache in real life so I want my guaranteed HEA. My favorite genre is definitely contemporary, followed by paranormal and romantic suspense. As far as my writing style, my books tend to have a few things in common: the heroes are always swoony, the heroines are always strong, and the book is always sexy. Have to live up to my title of Smut Queen.  Suzanne and Lisa, tell us a little about yourself.  Suzanne Marie (Mentee): What do I enjoy reading? Anything that isn’t a geometry textbook. I love history or historical fiction, and just finished Empire of the Summer Moon. If you’re into Native American history, it’s really interesting. I love memoirs. My favorite is Just Kids by Patti Smith, and I cry every time I read it. If I had to a desert island book, it’d be A Tree Grows in Brooklyn because I feel like I am Francie. Obviously, I read a pretty good amount of romance since I write it. Who doesn’t love to read their porn? How would I describe my writing style? In the immortal words of Kanye West, “I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things.” Kidding. It’s sweet and spicy. The anti Nicholas Sparks. Lisa Houghton (Mentee): Hi. *dorky wave.* I’m Lisa, and I enjoy reading pretty much anything, but I’m particularly fond of books featuring food, hot guys, balsy women, and small towns. I write romance novels with flawed characters and plenty of sexy times. When not reading or writing romance you can probably find me reading any kind of non-fiction (I’m an info sponge) or trying to train my maniac dog.     Brighton, why did you decide to participate in Pitch Wars ? ...
