Monroe: I have wanted to be a thousand different things (professional ballerina, flight attendant, magician, etc.), but I have always written because it allows me to experience all the things with a significantly less demanding amount of training. Ha! Though, if Julliard called me tomorrow to dance, I would drop everything and head to New York! (Sorry, everyone!)
Max: Surprisingly, I never thought I would be a writer. I wanted to be many different things, including a school crossing guard (when I was in kindergarten), a gymnast, a doctor, and a meteorologist—I even spent four years getting a degree for this one—but in the end, writing is a part of my life I can’t imagine being without. Make no mistake, though, if I had six more inches of height and a background in professional dance, I would be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader in a heartbeat!
Max & Monroe: When we write in series ,we always know the couples and a loose idea of the plot, but we’re also careful not to box ourselves in to a specific outline. We do better with a little wiggle room.
Max & Monroe: No. We have many books that have been partially written and then stopped, but they have been sidelined due to timing or the inspiration for other projects taking precedence. Truthfully, we get antsy to share any complete stories with our readers, and a long wait would kill us!
Max & Monroe: Oh, boy, covers are so tricky and fun at the same time! We are looking for a certain vibe that encompasses the characters and is on brand for us, and obviously, the hotter the eye candy, the better
Max & Monroe: Quite literally, anywhere and everywhere! Social media, a music lyric, a line in a movie, a joke our husbands tell. Anything can spark inspiration and get the creative mood flowing. The tricky part is making ourselves wait until we have another opening in the schedule to start!
Max & Monroe: We love them all, but our first couple, the infamous Kline and Georgia from Tapping the Billionaire, will kind of always be untouchable because they started it all! We mean, that’s when we realized the magic of writing together!
Max & Monroe: It takes us roughly four to six weeks for a rough draft and another couple to actually be funny. Haha!
Max: My favorite to read is romance—shockingly, ha!— but I do enjoy thrillers and mysteries as well. I just like to read books that make me feel good most of the time.
Monroe: Romance for sure, but every once in a while, I will read suspense or a thriller to cleanse the palate. Max and I have very similar taste—which is probably why we’re besties! Haha!
Max & Monroe: This one is so hard to answer because we would love to see any of our books made into a movie! Give us a call, NETFLIX! We’re not picky. (wink wink)
