Overprotected Blog Tour: Character Interview: Ashlyn

This is a character interview with Ashlyn the main character in Jennifer Laurens newest novel Overprotected!
Thanks for taking the time out and answering some questions. How are you?
I'm doing well, thank you.
What's it like living in New York City?
One thing I love about New York is that it's alive every hour of every day. There's comfort in that. At least for me.
Can you describe your love for Colin using 3 words?
Honest. Limitless. Beautiful.
It seemed stressful having an overprotective dad, could you offer any advice for people dealing with overprotective parents?
Stand up for yourself. It took me a long time to believe and internalize that, but, once I started taking steps I realized I should have done that a long time ago.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Teaching piano lessons, I hope. I'd love to help nurture the love of music in children and see them reach their potential. I can also see myself married. :)
Are there any countries you'd love to go visit?
Italy - I'd love to see Rome.
What are you currently doing with yourself?
I'm at Juilliard, and I love it! I've just finished composing another piece. Not surprisingly, its called "Freedom".
Could you see yourself ever writing a novel about what has happened in your life?
I express my feelings and emotions best through music. I'm not sure I could write a story about what happened--it's kind of personal. But I might be interested in someone else writing it. :)

  5. I just imagine Ashlyn while doing the interview! touching her hair, and expresing her opinions moving her hands! Go girl! Awesome interview!

  6. Characters interviews are my favourite to read. They give me a sense of the character's personality and I connect better with them.

  7. I've been dying to read this! :) I love character interviews :D Thanks. I've never been to NYC but I bet it's amazing!

  8. Read Overprotected... Quite liked it but the drama was pretty over the top. But I guess that's what overprotected means.

  9. I was actually lucky enough to win some Overprotected swag from We Fancy Books a little while ago and it arrived this week. Looking forward to reading the book too.....I think the characters sound really awesome =)

  10. I have always loved the inteviews with characters from books - it's interesting, I think. I heard a lot of things about Overprotected and I think I will add it to my TBR list:)

  11. I can see how Ashlyn craves freedom, and how she loves to express her feelings by playing the piano.
