Blog Tour – I Followed the Rules by Joanna Bolouri – Interview


As part of the blog tour to celebrate Joanna Bolouri’s new book, I Followed the Rules, we have an interview with the lady whose debut novel, The List, had me in stitches when I read it last year! Here’s what we talked about!

1.  Could you describe I Followed the Rules in less than 10 words?

Unconventional single mother agrees to follow obnoxious dating guide.

2.  What inspired you to write I Followed the Rules?

My sister gave me a copy of The Rules by Ellen Fein and I thought it would be funny to try and follow this. I lasted about 3 days but the idea sprung from this.

3.  Which actress would be the perfect heroine for you?

For the character of Cat, I’d like to see someone like Ashley Jensen. I love her.

4.  Do you write what you read?

Not at all. I generally read horror but I’m pushing myself to read different genres these days.

5.  What is your usual writing day like?

I take my daughter to school, do coffee/emails/Twitter until 10 and then stare at a blank document until I collect my daughter. After she’s in bed, I start writing around half nine because that’s when my brain decides to work.

6.  Quickfire Round!


Coffee or tea?

Favourite dessert?
Vanilla cheesecake

Best meal you’ve ever had?
Any meal I didn’t cook.

Favourite romantic comedy scene?
When Emma Stone drags Ryan Gosling back to his place in Crazy Stupid Love.
