When recent college graduate Nathan Harris makes a life-changing move out from under his mother’s thumb and into his own place, he is determined to take some risks. He is tired of not being good enough, tired of allowing his fears to control him.

What he thought would be an exciting adventure ends up being one jaw-dropping mishap of embarrassment after another, leaving him with a life he doesn’t even recognize anymore.

His once boring, lonely existence has been replaced by a brownstone filled with colorful friends, a rough around the edges, tattooed bad boy best friend, and a stripper for a boyfriend who’s not even sure he’s gay.

Ding…. He heard his phone go off again as he was grabbing an orange from the fridge. Nathan set the orange on the counter and pulled his phone out of his pocket.

Maybe I’m jumping the gun here. What are you into?

Nathan wasn’t quite sure how to answer that. He leaned back against the kitchen counter and stared at the keypad for a second before responding. Guys?

Ding…. I’m literally shaking my head at you right now….

Ding…. Josh instantly followed up his last text. I meant what turns you on about a guy. Eyes? A nice ass? I need to know what I’m working with here.

Nathan felt like the entire world could see his words as he typed his response. I think men’s feet are sexy.

Ding…  Josh responded, apparently not fazed at all by Nathan’s answer. All right then, let’s start at the toes and work our way up.

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing C.C. Dado author of Imposter in Zebra-striped Briefs.

Chris: Hi C.C., thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

C.C.: I am a native of the Pacific Northwest. I’m a bit of a hypochondriac sundae, with claustrophobic sprinkles, and a big cherry of anxiety on top, so I don’t travel much. I read and write to relax my mind. I tend to write painfully awkward, usually embarrassing, romance because long confident gazes followed by sexy dancing NEVER happens to me.

Imposter in Zebra-striped Briefs is about taking chances, making friends and falling for someone that you never thought you could have.


Chris: Was there a basis for you story? A previous experience or something else?

C.C.: I wanted this book to be centered around Josh and Brandon’s wedding from ‘That Place Across the Hall’ (a short story I wrote in a separate anthology) but I did not what them to be the main characters. Having Josh take the new guy under his wing worked well for me to tell both stories intertwined.


Chris: What skills do you think a writer needs?

C.C.: A creative mind, a good editor and drive.


Chris: What for you is the perfect book hero?

C.C.: The perfect hero to me depends on the story but my personal favorite is someone rough, with glimpses of a softer side.

Chris: Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

C.C.: The rules of grammar.

Chris: Tell us about your favorite childhood book.

C.C.: Donald Duck and the One Bear, was my favorite book growing up. It’s a spin on Goldilocks and the three bears.

Chris: Thank you for the interview!

About the author: 

I write painfully awkward, usually embarrassing, romance because long confident gazes followed by sexy dancing never happens to me.

I am a native of the Pacific Northwest, and will probably never leave since I’m a hypochondriac sundae, with claustrophobic sprinkles, and a cherry of anxiety on top. I read and write to relax my mind and I love getting lost in someone else’s story, even if it is only for a little while.
