My Interview with Allie from Overwhelm Me!

Posted December 18, 2012 by Holly in Interview / 0 Comments

Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Allie from the upcoming release Overwhelm Me by AC Marchman.

Allie Marshall has dealt with a traumatic past that she desperately wants to keep buried. She moved to Atlanta to escape her old life and pursue her dream of becoming a Physician Assistant. With the help of her roommate, Livey, she has finally gotten her life back on track and will be graduating from Emory University with honors.

Then, she meets Donovan Callahan, a sexy and wealthy doctor who Allie cannot resist. Their relationship starts off intense and full of passion. Donovan wants to give Allie the world. But she soon learns he was involved with Claire Dubois, a reality star convicted of murdering her husband. Will she stick by his side when all of his baggage comes to the surface or will she be overwhelmed and turn her back on him?

My interview follows:

Allie thank you for agreeing to sit down with me today! I was hoping to ask you a few questions about yourself giving readers a chance to get to know you a little better before Overwhelm Me comes out.

Allie:Hi, Holly! It’s great to meet you! Thanks for taking the time to chat with me. I love your blog, by the way!
Me: Aw thank you Allie you’re so sweet <3
Me: So tell me about yourself; how old are you? Where are you from?
Well, I am almost 23 years old. I just graduated from Emory with a Bachelors in Science. I was born and raised in a small town in Virginia called Lynchburg. It’s a college town, and there’s not a lot to do there, but it’s home! Atlanta is great, but I miss my family.

Me: Any siblings?

Yes, I do have one brother. His name is Jon and he also has twin boys. Jamie and Henry! (grins) I love those boys! They have their auntie Alley Cat wrapped around their tiny little fingers. They are quite the handful.
Me: I understand that feeling! I have three nieces and a nephew and they are the apples of my eye

Me: So are you seeing anyone special? If so how did you guys meet?
(blushing) Well, there IS this one guy, Donovan Callahan. He’s a doctor, and he’s incredibly sexy! Oh my God, I said that out loud! (laughs) I can’t deny it, he’s amazing in every possible way. He’s also great in bed. (slaps head) Sorry, don’t mean to give you TMI. I can’t seem to stop myself when it comes to Donovan. (smiles) Funny you should ask how we met. I almost ran him over on my way to my finals when I was late! I couldn’t get that sexy ass man out of my head. And fortunately, he felt the same way. (squirms in seat) I need to call him when we finish up.

Me: May I ask what you do for a living? Do you work or go to school?
Well, right now, I’m working at Bayside Golf Club.  I will be going into the Physician Assistant program at Emory this coming year, so I’m totally excited about it! I can’t wait to help people manage their health. If I help save even one life, then I know it’s all worth it. I look forward to every challenge life hands me. And trust me, I have had a lot of challenges.

Me: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hmmm. (taps finger on chin) In five years? Well, I plan on being a PA. I’m not sure what location. Maybe Georgia, maybe Virginia, maybe a completely different state. Who knows where life will take me? But I’m excited to find out!

Me: Anything else you’d like to tell us about yourself that might not be in Overwhelm Me?
My life has had its ups and downs. I have tried with all my might to overcome this obstacles and I’ve managed pretty well so far. I hold my head high and weather the storms as best I can. And if I have Donovan by my side, nothing can phase me. He’s a source of strength for me, and I hope to be that for him.
Me: Well by the sound of things you look like you have a bright future ahead of you! Thank you for taking the tome to meet with me today Allie; it was a pleasure meeting you!!!
Thank you for taking time to sit and chat, Holly. I really enjoyed myself! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to call Donovan.
