Author Interview with Laverne Thompson.


Happy weekend, Diverse Romance Readers.
This weekend, we caught up with author Laverne Thompson to ask her a few questions about her novella, The Glass King. Enjoy this short interview!


Interview question #1: Describe what your hero and heroine would consider the perfect date night. 

Working on a mathematical formula together in the same room.

Interview question #2: What does your hero love about your heroine and what does your heroine love about your hero?

He loves her empathy, her intelligence and her acceptance of him as an equal. She loves his intelligence, his kindness to her for accepting her as she is and his loyalty to his people and willingness to protect them.

Interview question #3: For your hero and heroine, was it love at first sight or lust at first sight? 

They were children when they first met so it was love at first sight. A sense of meeting someone that was important to you.

Xander raised his head and the tears fell from his eyes he’d been trying not to shed. He wasn’t the only one crying now.

Standing at the mirror watching her as she stepped in front of him he couldn’t take his eyes off her. She was his everything. He’d known the first time he’d seen her and as the years went by and they’d grown, the feeling had only gotten stronger. He had a fight ahead of him.

A short stand alone romantic fantasy.

“Are you there?” she whispered. Trinity stood in front of the mirror. She’d managed to get everyone to clear the room, pleading she needed a few moments alone. Which she did. She stared at her reflection and found she was unrecognizable. No matter how hard she looked, nothing happened, her image remained—alone. After all this time, did she really expect it to be any different?

“Am I doing the right thing?” she whispered to the mirror. Silence met her plea. Only her image of a woman—dressed in an off the shoulder dress of pale white, threaded with iridescent pearls that shimmered as she moved—stared sadly back at her. The gown was stunning and if she were honest with herself so was she.

It hadn’t always been this way. At one time she would have never been considered the one to make a statement with her mere presence. Never the center of attention, she’d been the girl who was always more long, bony arms and skinny legs. Her body then was nothing short of poll like.

Back in those days, if people hadn’t seen her eating…they would have thought her anorexic. She wasn’t, she’d just been a sickly kid with a rare blood disorder, one that she’d been able to get under control. During her freshman year of high school, everything changed. The awkward chicken legged girl, put on weight, grew breasts and suddenly, those legs became sleek and toned.

She had turned into a beautiful swan. One, who years later, was marrying the man of her dreams. Or so social media claimed. Her fiancé Jeffery was a sports enthusiast and loved to post images of them together. But Jeffery was not the man of her dreams. Was he? Otherwise, why would the sparkle in her eyes be from unshed tears, ones not born of happiness but a soul deep ache at the wrongness of what she was about to do. She raised her hand and placed it over her face. How stupid she was to hope that he would answer. Not after she’d walked out on him so very long ago and never looked back. Besides, she’d never found him in another mirror.

He’d only ever existed in one place.
