Hi Out There in Cyber Space:
I'm Christie Walker Bos and I love that phrase, Live, Love, Laugh. You could say it’s my philosophy of life. So it comes as no surprise that my genre would be romantic comedy. My books are contemporary stories with just the right amount of humor, the same humor you might find in your own life. I know there is plenty of humor in my life.
If my books were movies (and don’t I wish they were!) they would star actresses like Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts or Kate Hudson. Think “You’ve Got Mail” or “Pretty Woman” or “Raising Helen.”
I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, raised kids in Orange County, and now write from my home in Big Bear Lake. Southern California offers so many different looks and feels, from the mountains, to the desert, to the coast, that it makes it easy to set my novels in and around Los Angeles.
- “The Write Man For Her” takes place in Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey.
- “Getting Back to Delaney” has the main characters living in Venice Beach.
- In the“Magical Man List” the story moves in and around Century City with a trip or two to Dodger Stadium.
To find my main squeeze, I created a Man List with 65 items. The first guy to “qualify” coming in with 63 out of 65 items, was my now husband, Robbie. Since the list thing worked so well, I turned it into my first novel, Magical Man List.
They always say, “Write what you know.” I know how to live, love and laugh, so that’s what I write. What is your philosophy of life and how does that influence what you read?
