Quintette of Questions: Penny Brandon

Quintette asks writers five quick questions. This week’s interview is with:

Penny Brandon

PB_TLG2_FirstKiss1.   What’s the name of your latest story – and how hard was it to pick a title?

First Kiss is the name of the book, and it was actually very hard to pick. Though the premise of the story is all about Joey not wanting to kiss, he had to, to save his life. Of course he didn’t know that. So I thought of several different titles, but it all came down to one thing. It was Joey’s First Kiss.

2.     If you could choose anyone from any time period, who would you cast as the leads in your latest story?

Sean Connery and Antonio Banderas.

3.     What five words best describe your story?

A tear jerker love story.

4.     Who is your favourite fictional couple?

Cinderella and Prince Charming.

5.     What song always makes you cry?

The only song that made me cry was Donny Osmond’s Puppy Love. I was 12 when I heard it, but I had just finished reading The Outsiders and I was feeling pretty vulnerable at the time.


About First Kiss

The second Brenn saw Joey’s image in the magic mirror, he was hooked. The moment he saw him in real life, Brenn knew Joey was going to be his forever. Joey was flirty, and fun, and he had the most gorgeous smile, but then Joey told him he was dying. Though devastated, Brenn didn’t want to give up on Joey, so he offered to look after him and make his last few days as comfortable as possible, but was that going to be enough when all Brenn really wanted was for Joey to live?

Brenn was everything Joey could have wished for; strong, built, and with amazing eyes, and Brenn was in love with him. That would have given Joey something to live for, if it hadn’t been too late. He had about three weeks left, but that didn’t seem to matter to Brenn. Brenn wanted to take him home, and Joey was willing to go with him, but on two conditions. He wanted Brenn to make love to him before he died, but no kissing.

About Penny

pennyPenny’s been a lover of books since before she could read and a maker of stories before she knew how to talk properly, so it was only natural that she started writing when she could hold a pen. From fairytales to teenage romances to the hot, erotic stories she writes now, she’s always held the same belief; to love what she puts down on paper. Which means she doesn’t love cooking, cleaning or weeding the garden. She does, however, love to travel and has lived in England and Ireland and now resides in Australia, where she intends to stay and discover all that she can of this beautiful country.
