Quintette asks writers five quick questions. This week’s interview is with Georgie Tyler!
My debut release is a Contemporary Romance called Doctors Beyond Borders, which I now sometimes refer to as DBB! The working title of the book was originally Sudan Sand as the story is set in Sudan. First, I’ll let you know how that title came about. It’s the colour of the paint used for the exterior of my house! Honest! It wasn’t that hard to pick because the can of leftover paint still sits on a shelf in my garage which I see every day getting in and out of my car!
We changed it to DBB because Escape Publishing wanted to incorporate the medical theme into the title. My husband was my sounding board and if I remember correctly came up with the current title. We had a few sensible ones and then some bloopers (like Critical, Terminal and Just What The Doctor Ordered!) which I sent through to Escape and they chose this one. I’m really happy with it and I think it works well with the story.
2. If you could choose anyone from any time period, who would you cast as the leads in your latest book?
Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling (love him!)
3. What five words best describe your story?
Exotic, romantic, emotional, adventurous, dangerous
4. Who is your favourite fictional couple?
I thought about this long and hard. I had a few that I could have named but my favourite couple would have to be from the first screenplay turned into a movie written by Quentin Tarantino, True Romance: Clarence Worley (Christian Slater) and Alabama Whitman (Patricia Arquette). It’s one of my favourite movies and a true romance!
5. What song always makes you cry?
Has to be Smile by Nat King Cole. I’m listening to it now as I’m tapping on the keyboard and can’t keep the waterworks at bay!
