Happy Tuesday everyone! Today, we are talking to Maureen K. Howard, the author/s behind the book, “Sunny Side Up.” She’ll be giving away a signed copy of her book during the drawing on Saturday. For now, let’s get to know a little about this amazing author.
Who is Maureen K Howard?
Maureen K. Howard is the pen name we use. It’s a combo of Maureen Kovach and Brigette Howard. Mother/daughter team.
How long have you all been writing as “Maureen K. Howard”?
Informally forever. We started collaborating on book 1 about 3 years ago.
Why is this series set on Lake Erie?
Setting is Lake Erie because we’ve been boating there 20 plus years. The kids grew up there every summer.
What’s the story behind the title, “Sunny Side Up”?
Francis’s last name is Egge (rhymes with ledge) but people mispronounce it “egg”all the time. The series titles all have a take on kinds of eggs.
Where did June and Francie come from? Real people or your all’s head?
Francie and June are imaginary characters but they possess traits from various close friends.
Have you got anything in the works?
Book 2, Deviled, will be available in November- on time for holiday shopping!
Thanks Maureen and Brigette! We look forward to “Deviled.” Don’t forget to enter our giveaway. Maureen K. Howard is giving away a signed copy of “Sunny Side Up.”
