Dishin' It Up with @vivianlanewrite, author of Nothin' But Trouble

Vivian Lane

Create a tweet (140 characters or less) that describes Nothin' But Trouble.
Catherine tempts vampire William like no other, but if he gives in, it could cost the girl her life. Nothin' by Trouble is a sexy debut.

Sum the character William up in three words.
Cranky. Lonely. Hot.

Name a vampire from another book/movie/TV show that would make a great sidekick/BFF for William.
William doesn't really care about morality at this point, so that vampire would have to think along similar lines or he wouldn't tolerate them for a second. Damon from The Vampire Diaries would work. He'd support Simon from Demon Under Glass, who is a practical vampire who doesn't feel guilt over needing to feed to survive. William would absolutely admire Selene from Underworld. She's hot, she kicks ass, and she protects those she cares about to the bitter end. None of those guilt-ridden hate-their-nature vampires would minute of preaching at William would reap bad consequences!

If Nothin' But Trouble were a movie, who would be the perfect actress to play Catherine and what would be a great opening title track? 
Catherine is eighteen for most of the book, so it'd have to be someone young that still looks young, and Catherine is also a brunette with long hair and bangs. I'm not up on who the current hot young actresses are, so I can't say who might fit best. Someone who can portray innocence and sex appeal at the same time. And an opening title track? Hmmm...nothing too romantic. This is not a love story. This movie needs an instrumental score, not a playlist of popular songs, so I can't name one. But I'd hope for a great composer!
Name the title of any book that best describes you as a person.
Hard question! I've loved many books, but I've never read a character who is just like me. I'd like to hope I'd be like Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings, sticking by my friend and the quest to the bitter end and always trying to do the right thing. He's the real hero of the book even though he's not written like a classic hero like Aragorn. And I'm only 5'2", so I know what it's like to be underestimated because of my size like all Hobbits are.

Totally Random WTF Question: You witnessed Julius Caesar's death, and now you must testify in court. Describe your testimony.

Oh, gosh....I'm an honest person, but in a case of seeing these powerful men kill the emperor, I'd have to heavily consider my safety and the safety of my family when I chose my words. It would also depend on if I'd been a supporter of Caesar's policies or preferred the Roman Republic. Those were tumultuous times, with civil war, and I'm sure every adult had an opinion! Augustus rose to power after Caesar's death, so it obviously wasn't a good time to side with the Senate. I think I'd be hoping the Roman legal system had Witness Protection.

Trouble—that’s what Catherine was from the day William laid eyes on her. He didn’t get involved with clients, and after his sire broke his heart and abandoned him, women were of little interest beyond sating his occasional lust. But when a college girl is dumped in his lap, he soon discovers an irresistible temptation he only has six weeks to explore.
