We’re trying out a fun and quick interview series called “Four in Hand,” named after the four-horse carriages driven by a solo driver. Here’s how “four in hand” works here.
The interviewee receives a list of a dozen or so horse-related questions. Of those questions, said interview subject picks four to answer. Not all require deep horsey knowledge. And most are fun. You’ll see.
Our first “driver” for “Four in Hand” is Jennifer Fusco.Jennifer leads a double life. By day, she’s a marketing director at GE. By night, she writes novels of action, adventure and paranormal romance.She’s also merged both of her callings by writing a series of ebooks helping authors deal with the scary prospect of marketing their books.Her MARKET OR DIE series is currently available through Amazon. Plus, she runs Market or Die Author Services to help authors market their books.*
1. The Kentucky Governor has invited you to join him and the First Lady in their box at the Kentucky Derby. Tell us about your outfit.
Well, it’s more about the hat than the outfit, isn’t it? My hat is pink, flamingo pink, with feathers and a pink satin bow. It is big and blocks the people’s view behind me, but I don’t really care because I’m sitting in box seats with the Governor and his wife. I imagine my dress as an eggshell white to tone down my pinky pink hat. But pink pumps, of course!
2. Your escort for Royal Ascot will be a Mr. Bond – James Bond. Which Bond do you want to accompany you?
My goodness, what a tough question! For me, it’s a toss-up between Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan. If we’re talking modern day though, I’m choosing Brosnan, as long as he wears a tux!
3. Do you have a horse? (Name, breed – if known, color, most memorable experience)
I don’t have a horse. I live inside city limits. If I did, I’m sure it would the situation would resemble that of Chestnut on the CBS TV Show, “Two Broke Girls.”
4. Did you have a horse or pony in childhood? (Name, breed – if known, color, most memorable experience)
I did, actually, I had 3 horses. They all lived at my Grandmother’s house in North Carolina. All of them were brown and named Peanut, Major and Tobey. Peanut, was of course, my favorite, until I fell off him one day. My biggest mistake was never getting back on. Even today, I don’t ride horses, but I watch them from a distance. What beautiful animals!
Thanks for the drive, Jennifer!
Even if you’re not an author wanting to sell a book, you might be selling/promoting something, so you might be interested in the MARKET OR DIE books. (FWIW, her exercises and lessons don’t sound as dire as the title might suggest.)
