Erika Tsang: happy that she’s that much closer to Harrison Ford…
Senior Editor, Avon Romance
Yes, I have an obsession with Harrison Ford. I’ve seen every one of his movies – even Mosquito Coast and that really bad one co-starring Brad Pitt, not to mention the bomb that was Hollywood Homicide. I’m not known for my movie choices – honestly, how many of you can claim to have seen Rumor Has It voluntarily? So please, don’t expect me to blog about movies.
Who is your favorite hero of fiction?
What I should say: Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights.
But the truth is: Robert Scorpio from General Hospital. He’s an international spy with an Australian accent and a wicked sense of humor. As much a fighter as he is a lover, he can arch his eyebrow at me anytime.
Who is your favorite heroine of fiction?
What I should say: Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice
But the truth is: Anna Devane Scorpio Lavery Scorpio Hayward from General Hospital. Did you see that comeback on May 19th?! First she hugs her daughter and then she gave ex-hubby Robert the smack down he deserves for playing dead all these years, all while looking sexy as all heck. Anna is wily and passionate and delivers a powerful front kick!
Your favorite occupation?
What I should say: Are you kidding? Being an editor is my dream job!
But the truth is: A real estate agent. I’m a voyeur at heart. Just ask my authors (and some not even mine!) whose homes I’ve visited – from Atlanta to Nashville to Southern California. I’m trying to wrangle an invite while I’m in Seattle this fall…
Your favorite musician?
What I should say: Bruce Springsteen or Kelly Clarkson or someone equally hip.
But the truth is: Faith Hill. I grew up listening to Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell and Alabama. In college, I would lie and say I was into rock but secretly my walkman would be playing Garth Brooks.
Your favorite indulgence?
What I should say: Reading a good book
But the truth is: Food. A former colleague once commented on how quickly I sucked down a filet mignon in front of her. I also love pasta and seafood. I have a tough time choosing between lobster bisque and NE clam chowder. And my motto is, if a dessert doesn’t have chocolate in it, what’s the point?
