Spotlighting Mandy Hubbard's PRADA AND PREJUDICE

Mandy Hubbard is here today for the Debs Blog Tour!

Mandy grew up on a dairy farm outside Seattle, where she refused to wear high heels until homecoming—and hated them so much she didn’t wear another pair for five years. A cowgirl at heart, she enjoys riding horses and quads and singing horribly to the latest country tune. She’s currently living happily ever after with her husband (who, sadly, is not a Duke) and her daughter (who is most definitely a princess).

In PRADA AND PREJUDICE, Callie just wants to impress the popular girls when she buys a pair of Prada heels on her class trip to London. She didn’t plan on tripping, conking her head, and waking up in 1815! Now she’s wearing corsets with her designer pumps, eating bizarre soups, and breaking up engagements. If only the nineteen year old Duke of Harksbury wasn’t so bloody annoying, she might have a little fun in Austen-Era England…

Here are Mandy's answers to the Thorough Three...

NM: What is the age of your protagonist/s?

MH: 15

NM: What is the single, most important bit of advice you'd give to the You that was the same age as your protagonist/s?

MH: Boys are not as scary as you think they are. Also, being 5'10 is a good thing. It might not seem like it now becuase all the boys are still really short, but don't worry about being so tall-- rock a pair of heels now and then. It won't kill you.

NM: Complete the following sentences:

Everyone should definitely, for sure _____________.

You should NEVER, EVER ___________. But if you absolutely must, make sure to ____________.

MH: Everyone should definitely, for sure, read FAIRY LUST by Cyn Balog. Because it rocks.

You should NEVER, EVER try to ban a book, but if you absolutely must, make sure you only ban it in your own house and not in the whole freaking school district.

Thanks, Mandy!
