Off The Record with Orsayor
Orsayor: Are the names of the characters in your novels important?
Pat: Most people think I make up my characters names, but I never do! All of my characters are named after actual people I've met. Some of whom have asked me to use their name in a book. My 2014 book-The Cocktail Club has a character named after a FB friend because I LOVE her name. Darby:) I never told her, but FYI-names are not, and can not be copyrighted.
Orsayor: If you were going to commit the perfect murder, how would you go about it?
Pat: I would not murder anyone because I wouldn't be able to sleep at night afterwards, but if one of my characters were to do so, they'd spike a milkshake with anti-freeze over a period of time to make it the perfect murder.
Orsayor: Do you ever write naked?
Pat: I don't write naked. I'm usually in lounge wear, but never naked, Coach wouldn't let me get any work done if I did.
Orsayor: Who would play you in a film of your life?
Pat: Hmmm, I'm not sure who would play me, probably Gabrielle Union, but she's not young enough:)
Orsayor: What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
Pat: For all writers the most important attributes include always writing and always allowing your imagination to run wild.
Orsayor: What would you like for your Readers to know?
Pat: I would like my readers to know three things. First that I really appreciate their support, I could do what I do without readers, but it wouldn't be much fun. Secondly I'd like my readers and those who have never read a Pat Tucker book to take a chance on me, and the final thing I'd like readers to know is that Orsayor's interview questions are among the best I've ever answered!

Sideline Scandals lives up to its name - Most people try to avoid scandals, but when you are reading a Pat Tucker novel, you actually find yourself excited to be on the sidelines of the scandal. (no pun intended)
When I started reading this novel, I knew I was in for an unforgettable ride. Sasha has to be one of my favorite characters in the book. There were times while reading this book I wanted to turn to someone and say... Can you believe this? Then I remembered I was the only one reading the book.
Pat Tucker's writing gets better with each book she releases. I highly recommend this book.
