LET’S WELCOME SOPHIE SINCLAIR AUTHOR OF: COFFEE GIRL
Rad-Reader: Where did the idea for this story come from?
Sophie: My husband got me a summer
concert series. I was watching one country music band and the singer was
sweating like crazy. He jumped off the stage in between songs and when he came back
on he was sweat-free and shirtless. I thought I wonder who’s job it is to wipe
the sweat off him. The book evolved from that.
Rad-Reader: How did you go about creating Kiki and Tatum’s characters?
became a combination of all the country music acts I watched that summer. He’s
not based off, one particular country music musician. Kiki’s character
developed organically as I built the story around her becoming Tatum’s
assistant to his love interest.
Rad-Reader: Kiki’s date really thought they could be exclusive after just one date?
Ethan was a little bit of a control freak with a big ego. He liked Kiki and
wanted to lock her down. In his mind, who wouldn’t want to be exclusive with
Rad-Reader: How was someone able to live with themselves send a request for half a payment back for dinner on a date because he didn’t like the way it went? She didn’t pay it did she?
Sophie: There’s actually a whole
article I found on this particular style of dating. It’s crazy, but I guess
with the new dating apps where you go into this blind date, men now feel that their
date should pay half especially if the date doesn’t go well. I’m sure she did
pay just to get out of there.
Rad-Reader: Kiki’s sister is a piece of work. Has she always been like this?
her sister has always gotten her way. Their parents just ignore her obnoxious
behavior or laugh it off. Their mom coddles Brooke.
Rad-Reader: Cam and MacKenzie are really close. Who’s the eldest? How did she get the name Kiki?
is the oldest, then Cameron and Kiki is the youngest. Her real name is Mackenzie but shortened to
Kiki. I didn’t want to shorten it to Mac. Kiki seemed fitting for the baby of
Rad-Reader: Who is the friend Cam calls to help Kiki and if she is ok’d by him why is Jess so pissy?
is good friends with Lee, the manager of Tatum Reed. Jess doesn’t think she
needs an assistant. She doesn’t have time to babysit a newbie and she’s worried
Kiki might steal her job. Jess didn’t get a say in having her hired.
Rad-Reader: Sarah is such a sweet girl why hasn’t Lex ever tried to go out with her? How old are both of them?
didn’t want to mess up his friendship with Sarah since they worked together. He
also wasn’t in a place to date her seriously. Sarah is in her late twenties and
Lex is thirty.
Rad-Reader: How long have Lex and Tatum known each other?
Sophie: Lex and Tatum have known
each other for about eight years.
Rad-Reader: What is Savannah’s deal? She seems so angry yet she broke up with Tatum, right? Or is she hangry?
not hangry. She’s jealous of Tatum. She wants, his fame. She’s angry that he
didn’t want to be a power couple with her. She did not end things with him, he
broke up with her when he found out she cheated on him. She’s not in love with
him, but she’s in love with the possibility of them. She wanted to be the
“it” couple and he took that away from her.
Rad-Reader: Savannah keeps spreading lies, the one about Tate and Maddie have caused nothing but problems, why is she doing it?
wants to hurt Tatum and make herself look like the victim in their breakup. She
wants the fans to feel sorry for her and turn against Tatum. She’s jealous of
his success. She also needs the fan's support to boost her record sales and her
new pop album coming out.
Rad-Reader: Maddie is a piece of work, what is her deal?
is a rising star and it’s gotten to her head. She’s got a great voice, but a
crappy personality. She wants Tatum’s fame to skyrocket her to the top. She’s
jealous of the attention he gives Kiki, who in her eyes is a nobody. Why is he
giving her so much attention when he has a rising star right in front of him?
Rad-Reader: Why are they keeping her around? There is always a way to spin a story nicely so she doesn’t stay on the tour.
got a good voice and is popular with the fans. She never does anything that
gives them an excuse to kick her off the tour. Just because she doesn’t get
along with Kiki (who by the way is low on the totem pole on this tour) doesn’t
mean she’ll get fired. They do eventually kick her off the tour because
Savannah requests it.
Rad-Reader: Why didn’t Tate just come out and do a press conference getting ahead of Savannah’s lying interview? Saying he received an advance copy of the magazine and wanted to address the issues since they are false.
wanted to try and handle it with the Lawyers and get it handled discreetly. It
was a bad move on his part. Tatum does eventually decide to do exactly that and
beat her to the punch.
Rad-Reader: Why isn’t he talking to Kiki about the interview in case, it comes out?
was hoping the whole mess would get handled by the lawyers. He does eventually
confide in her what’s been happening.
Rad-Reader: How old are each of the guys in the band, Sarah, and Jess?
Sophie: The guys are in their late
twenties, to early thirties. Sarah is in her late twenties and Jess is in her late
Rad-Reader: Is Lee being a stir-stick between Savannah and Tate to keep them in the news together to keep the label happy and not helping Tate?
is all about making the label happy and keeping Tatum at the top. He wants only
good press for Tatum. He thinks that keeping him at number one and getting him
Entertainer of the Year is the most important thing for everyone. He doesn’t
care about his personal feelings. It’s all about business.
Rad-Reader: What is Savannah up to that she wants to sing with Tate in Seattle? Is Maddie in on it with her?
Savannah does not like Maddie, she’s threatened by Maddie’s sudden success.
She’s got her own agenda to come to Seattle. You’ll have to read the book to
find out why. 😉
Rad-Reader: Is Lee working for Tate or Savannah? I’m starting to wonder.
works for Tatum only. He is all about his success.
Rad-Reader: Kiki gets devastating news and goes home. Can things be made right? Will Cam, know the truth his friend caused and will he stay friends with him?
Sophie: Lol, I guess you’ll have to
read Coffee Girl to find out. 😉
Rad-Reader: If your book were made into a movie who would you want to play…
Rad-Reader: What song or songs best describes your characters or your character’s relationship or your book as a whole?
“Change Your Name – Brett Young”
Although Tatum did not know it at the time all he knew is that he saw Kiki carrying all those coffees and had to have her in his life. ‘Coffee Girl’ was who he wanted to know. He couldn’t get her off his mind and that she would be on tour with them made it better.
Kiki has had a messed-up image problem due to being the tomboy between her and her older sister. At sixteen all that changes yet, insecurities didn’t. So, having Tatum’s ex being a superstar brings them all back. Yet, he only sees his beautiful natural ‘Coffee Girl.’
