Sunday Brunch with Claire Contreras + Giveaway

by Claire Contreras
Also by this author: Paper hearts


Sunday Brunch is where we ask an author a series of ridiculous questions that have little or nothing to do with books or reading, all in an attempt for you to get to know the person behind the books and maybe, just maybe…pick up one of their titles. Hope you enjoy!

BHR: You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

Claire: Blood Thirsty Red. I don’t know. I just like that name and it would be deep red, which is always nice.

BHR: You are an alien, with your own spaceship – who do you abduct?

Claire: Stephen King and clone the shit out of him.

BHR: If you were a stalker, would you be good at it?

Claire: Hell yes.

BHR: What’s your favorite ’90s jam?

Claire: Damn. Hard question. I’ll just go with Hand in My Pocket by Alanis Morissette since it’s the first song that comes to mind (What it all comes down tooooo
is that everything is going to be quite all riiight).

BHR: If you were on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?

Claire: Journal, water, and a phone with one of those huge battery packs. Is there reception, though?… shit… I need to rethink this. If there’s no reception then I guess a book. I don’t know what book though. Maybe Shutter Island. Might as well go completely insane while I’m on this island.

BHR: If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why? 

Claire: My two favorite animals are: octopus and owls, but I’m afraid of the ocean and I’m afraid of flying, so… I’m basically screwed. Maybe an indoor cat because they get away with being assholes and still get fed.

BHR: What’s the most money you’ve ever drunkenly spent at a fast food joint?

Claire: Not much. Probably $5. Hello, have you been to Wendy’s or Taco Bell? You can get just about anything for $1.

BHR: If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?

Claire: LOL, Millie Bobby Brown (I’m assuming this movie will happen after I die).

BHR: Who would you let punch you directly in the face?

Claire: Fuck off. Nobody.

BHR: How old were you when you realised Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny probably never actually knew one another in real life?

Claire: Dude… when I was seven I figured out the Easter Bunny because my mom left the basket in her backseat and left me in the car while she ran into the store for 5min. I mean, who does that? (The basket part, obviously nobody leaves a kid in the car in 2016. We’d all be in jail if we lived the way we did back then). After I figured that out, I started questioning EVERYTHING. I still do.

BHR: We come to your house for dinner, what are we eating?

Claire: Depends. How many days did I have to prepare for this and do you have any allergies? Either way I’d probably buy Jamaican food from this joint a few blocks down. SO, SO GOOD.

BHR: What’s the weirdest place you’ve ever unintentionally vomited?

Claire: The fair (in front of everybody, right by the entrance). I had a stomach virus, but decided I needed to go eat Elephant Ears since the fair only comes once a year. Not a good idea.

BHR: What’s the weirdest place you’ve ever intentionally vomited?

Claire: Nowhere. That was the only time I’ve ever vomited in 32 years (not kidding).

BHR: Who was your favorite Spice Girl?

Claire: I never liked the Spice Girls :/ . I know.

BHR: What is your favorite kind of cookie?

Claire: Double stuf Oreos. Unless you bake chocolate chip cookies, and then those are my favorite. Warm with cold milk. Yum.

BHR: What is your favorite quote?

Claire: “We walk alone through this world, but if we’re lucky, we have a moment of belonging to something, to someone, that sustains us through a lifetime of loneliness.”

BHR: Who do you just hate the most? 😉

Claire: Ha. Wouldn’t you like to know?

BHR: Where would you go in a time machine?

Claire: Wow. It’s a toss-up between ancient Egypt and Woodstock 1969.


the-player-claire-contrerasI’m naturally gifted on the field and between the sheets. With flashy cars and enough media attention to put the Royal Family to shame, I’m the definition of Most Eligible Bachelor.

I’ve never met a man who doesn’t want to be me or a woman who doesn’t want to tame me. Until I meet Camila.

From the moment I lay eyes on her, I know I have to have her.

She wants to keep me at arm’s length.
I want her naked in my bed.

She thinks our worlds are too different.
All I want her to think about is screaming my name.

She says I’m bad news.

I have three weeks to prove her wrong.
