Today’s second interview is with Laura Lovett!
Laura (Hambley) Lovett was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, and received her PhD in Psychology from the University of Calgary in 2005. Her love of writing began at an early age when she would create and draw characters, telling stories to herself as she drew. An accomplished author in the academic and business world, Laura pursued her love of creative writing to pen her first novel, Losing Cadence, a psychological thriller. Losing Cadence was written over many years as Laura juggled school, work and family, but she made time to pursue her passion for writing. Laura is a psychologist and entrepreneur, currently running practices in the areas of career and leadership development and distributed workplaces. She was nominated and selected as a Distinctive Woman in Canada in 2013. Laura also enjoys teaching at the University of Calgary and has been an Adjunct Professor of Psychology since 2010. Laura lives in Calgary with her husband, three children and dog, Ghost. She loves playing squash, travelling, and reading, as well as her view of the Rocky Mountains as the snow is falling on her hot tub. Laura is currently represented by Mickey Mikkelson of Creative Edge Publicity.
Q: On a cold day: coffee, tea, cocoa or something a bit stronger, and why?

Q: What is the current book you are promoting?
A: Losing Cadence and the sequel, Finding Sophie.
Q: Who is your favorite character in your book and why?
A: Richard White. He’s unique, intense, and a character you love to hate.
Q: If your book were made into a movie, who would you cast?
A: Chris Pine as Richard. Bryce Dallas Howard as Cadence.
Q: Dessert: cake or pie and why?
A: Pie. Cake can be too sweet, yet cheesecake is also a favorite!
