Blog Tour Interview + Giveaway: Misconduct by Penelope Douglas

Hi, everyone!  Thank you for stopping by Owl Always Be Reading today! We have something fun and exciting for you! An exclusive interview with Penelope Douglas and an amazing giveaway!


From the New York Times bestselling author of the Fall Away series who never fails to deliver a “powerfully written contemporary love story…”*

Former tennis player Easton Bradbury is trying to be the best teacher she can be, trying to reach her bored students and trying to forget her past. What brought her to this stage in her life isn’t important. She can’t let it be. But now one parent-teacher meeting may be her undoing…
Meeting Tyler Marek for the first time makes it easy for Easton to see why his son is having trouble in school. The man knows how to manage businesses and wealth, not a teenage boy. Or a young teacher, for that matter, though he tries to. And yet…there is something about him that draws Easton in—a hint of vulnerability, a flash of attraction, a spark that might burn.
Wanting him is taboo. Needing him is undeniable. And his long-awaited touch will weaken Easton’s resolve—and reveal what should stay hidden…
Title: Misconduct
Author: Penelope Douglas
Publication Date: December 1, 2015

Penelope Douglas is a writer living in Las Vegas. Born in Dubuque, Iowa, she is the oldest of five children. Penelope attended the University of Northern Iowa, earning a Bachelor's degree in Public Administration, because her father told her to "just get the damn degree!" She then earned a Masters of Science in Education at Loyola University in New Orleans, because she HATED public administration. One night, she told the bouncer at the bar where she worked that his son was hot, and three years later she was married. To the son, not the bouncer. They have spawn, but just one. A daughter named Aydan. Penelope loves sweets, The 100, and she shops at Target almost daily.

Hi Penelope!  Thank you so much for taking your time to answer some of my questions! 

I hope you all enjoy!

Q:   Where were you and what were you doing when you first got the idea for MISCONDUCT? 
A:  Great question! Actually, a friend gave me the idea. Before I was a full time author, I taught elementary school, and since authors should write what they know and my other series was coming to a close at that point, she thought it would make sense for me to do something related to teaching. Books are more authentic when they’re personal. 

That winter, I ended up going to New Orleans (my favorite city) for a signing, and I knew Tyler and Easton had to be there. 

Q:   What were your biggest challenges in writing Misconduct?

A:   My biggest challenges were probably having two releases while I was trying to write it. It wasn’t a hard book to write. I connected with the characters, and I loved their chemistry, but it was distracting to want to enjoy the conclusion of the Fall Away series with the readers but also know that I have to write, have to write, have to write…Lol 

Q:   Do you have any must haves while you’re writing?

A:   I think anyone that knows me knows I need candy and popcorn. They keep me planted at the computer. I also need Pinterest boards and playlists for all of my books. They get my head in the place it should be to get into the story. 

Q:  Do you have any big plans, like a “treat yourself” celebration, for the release day?

A:   Well, I never have before. I’m always too overwhelmed with posting, answering messages, and checking reviews to relax, but now…since I’m more experienced and have traveled this road before, I have a bottle of Moet chilling in the refrigerator. And then I think I might sit in my recliner (since I haven’t enjoyed it in a long time) and watch Netflix. And chill. :D

Q:   What are 5 random facts about you?
1. There’s too much blood in my caffeine stream. 
2. Key Lime is my favorite pie.
3. My sister puked on my head when I was six. We’ve moved on and become friends since then. 
4. My favorite book is Frankenstein. 
5. I feel emotionally and physically happier when it’s raining. 

Lightning Round:
The best part of my day is: 
Seeing my daughter come out of school when I go to pick her up. 

Best cure for a bad day is: 
A walk and my iPod. 

Happy ever after is: 
Having a vast backyard for my daughter and I to get lost in with trees to climb and have picnics under while hearing Daddy’s engine roaring in the garage as he works on it. 

I dream of: 
Sorry. My brain has put its foot down. “I work too much when you’re awake, I have no interest in overtime when you’re asleep!”

The most beautiful thing I've ever seen was: 
Half-Dome at Yosemite National Park
