Today’s featured author is bestselling author, Sariah Wilson!

Learn some fun facts about Sariah in this short Q&A. Leave a question on the blog for a chance to win #Starstruck!
1. What genre(s) do you write? 
I write in the sweet/clean and wholesome romance category.  
2. Coffee or tea lover? 
Hot chocolate!
3. Name one thing on your bucket list.
 To stay in a castle in Ireland.
4. Do you have pets?

 I do! I have two long-haired, fluffy cats, Callie and Pixel. We also have a bunny named Lucky.

5. When I wake up every morning I…I hit the snooze button and try to sleep for five more minutes. I am not a fan of mornings.
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
Probably a green button-down shirt that my favorite ex-soap opera star wore on his show. It’s even autographed.
7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills? 
 Hobbies – I love doing elaborate/difficult cross-stitch projects and watching TV (usually at the same time). As for particular skills, probably baking (much like my heroine, Zoe, in #Starstruck).
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories? 
My younger sister died when I was 17. All my mother wanted to do was watch rom-coms and read romances. Because for a few hours, she forgot her pain and grief. That’s what I want to accomplish with my books. To entertain, uplift and make it so that for a short time, readers can let go of their problems and stresses and just escape into something that makes them laugh, makes them sigh and makes the rest of the world fall away.
 
9. What inspired you to write Starstruck?
The first thing that inspired me is that I am (and have always been) a major fangirl. I love pop culture and have had tons of favorite celebrities over the years. Like actor Justin Baldoni, currently starring on “Jane the Virgin.” I’m #TeamRafael (his character) and have tweeted as much. Once he favorited my tweet, and I may or may not have squealed (full disclosure: I totally did). But then I tweeted about being excited, despite the fact that it was probably his assistant or publicist. To my shock and great delight he responded, “No, it’s me.” (This exchange is in #Starstruck, just altered a little.)
The other inspiration I had was actor Jake T. Austin. He had a superfan named Danielle who tweeted him for years, professing her undying devotion and adoration. She was determined to meet him and eventually did. Something magical must have happened at their first meeting, as not too long after Jake posted a picture on Instagram of him and Danielle kissing. They’ve been together ever since. The online fan community lost their collective minds over this – “If she can go from fan to girlfriend, SO CAN I.” I had to make my own fictional rendering of this endearing story, which is how #Starstruck came to be!
