Dylan Farrow puts on his pants every morning one leg at a time, just like everyone else at the Kerrigan Advertising Agency. He handles high-pressure projects with a fast turnaround. He’s prized for his keen intellect and admirable performance. But how did he get where he is today—to the level of Junior Executive of Design Production?
Well, that involves how he takes his pants off…
and for whom…
Hoping to break through the glass ceiling under which she’s been trapped for years, Valerie Caplan picks up her life and moves to Seattle. After hearing about the position of Senior Executive of Design Production from an art director at Kerrigan, she decides to apply. When she lands the big interview, she never thinks for a minute that she’ll have any serious competition. She assumes that she has the job in the bag…until she discovers that the only competition has something she doesn’t have—the willingness to go outside the office to impress Danica Stewart, their uptight female boss.

Thank you for stopping by All I Want and More. We’re glad to have you here.
Why don’t you tell us a little about yourself…Something that we cannot Google about you.
I’m a young female writer living with my husband in Seattle, Washington. An odd fact about me—I am deathly afraid of clowns.
Tell us a little about this book?
The Position is a book about a work-a-holic woman, Valerie, who is searching for a way to keep climbing the corporate ladder. Dylan is a ladder-climber too, but he is trying to sleep his way to the top. When a new boss at Kerrigan finds out they’re both going for the same position, she puts them on the same project in order to gauge their work. They’re forced to compete while working together.
What was your favorite part to write in this book?
The climax and the last scene between Dylan and Danica were both my favorites. They both packed a lot of punch.
You can only pick 3 words to describe your main characters, what would they be?
I can’t think of three words that would describe all three, so I’ll split them up.
Valerie – Ambitious
Dylan – Self-absorbed
Danica – Controlling
What 3 things would your main characters never leave the house without?
Valerie would never leave the house without her phone. Dylan always keeps sunglasses with him, even when he doesn’t wear them. Danica keeps a physical planner and she never goes anywhere without it.
Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why?
Danica was easy, even though her life and motives appear complex. She’s eventually going to get her own book, but it won’t be part a series. It’ll be a standalone spin-off.
Since we’re cover hussies….what was your first impression of this cover?
I love my cover. Dylan looks absolutely smoldering on the front.
What type of scene is your favorite to write? (Fight, love, making up..etc.)
Oh gosh, I love writing fights. It was true especially in this book because my characters seem to feel their passion flaring during fights.
How much emotion does it take from you to write?
Lot. Often, I’ll break down into tears during really emotional scenes. The love scenes sometimes get me so involved that I forget how to spell. Haha. I frequently have to take breaks.
What do you hope readers take away after reading one of your books?
This book in particular is really for entertainment purposes. My first book i sabout persevering through emotional hardship and loss.
Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try?
Historical fiction. I’m not sure I could keep things consistent with those times.
What are you currently working on?
I’m writing book one in a revenge trilogy, aptly named The Payback Series.
What’s the last line you wrote from your current WIP?
I’ll have to give you the paragraph, because out of context the sentence sounds weird.
“Weakly, she pushed his hand away. “I’ll do whatever you say, just please don’t touch me,” she whispered.
A pang of guilt struck his chest. “You’ll eat. You’ll sleep. You’ll learn to walk,” he said frankly. “In time, I think you’ll learn to talk, too.”
He watched as she mechanically ate half of the steak and potatoes. Without a word, she dropped her hands to the sheet. He passed her a napkin and she used it to wipe her face and fingertips.
“Satisfied?” she murmured, looking back to the yard. In the yellowing grass, she watched as a squirrel stuffed acorns between its cheek and gums.
“It’s a start,” he answered, gathering up the dishes. He gave the room a cursory scan for any dangerous implements, then made his way to the door. “By the way, you can call me Clark.” “
Okay…. personal time!!!!
What is on your night stand/dresser?
A wedding photo, a lamp and my laptop.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Read, cook, clean. I know, I’m boring.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
I don’t really have one. Haha.
What’s your secret talent?
I don’t really have a secret talent. Oh my god… I suck. LOL
