Fun Tidbits From No More Goddesses-Jordan Lake

Mandy at YA Books Central got me thinking this morning about blogging some fun tidbits from my new YA fantasy:




Today I thought I'd introduce you all to Jordan, the protagonist of my story!



Jordan Lake is a typical fifteen-year-old teen who just happens to love vintage clothing, romance, and Audrey Hepburn:



Jordan's motto, whenever she's in a bind or doesn't know what to do is, "What Would AH Do?"

She attends McKnight High school:


**Fun tidbit: I based Jordan's HS on a school close to us in Mission Viejo, California(around the area where the setting of this book). Loved the huge pepper/eucalyptus trees that are native to this area. I've even been known to go up and rub the bark which has a slightly menthol smell.

Other loves include writing her own lists. **She got this idea from Audrey Hepburn's movie WAR AND PEACE.

A couple things in that list are Paris:



She fantasizes of reinacting a scene from Audrey Hepburn's movie TESSA'S TREASURE in which Audrey dancing with a hawt guy up on the top floor of the Eiffel Tower.

**Fun tidbit: I made up the movie TESSA'S TREASURE and added a fun adventure the Audrey character finds herself in when she follows a very hawt explorer to Egypt.

Jordan's favorite outfit has to be skinny pants/capris, t-shirt, and ballet flats similar to what Audrey wore in FUNNY FACE.

Jordan also loves to meet up with her close friends Selena and Andrew at the nearby In and Out Burger stop. Her favorite meal there? Cheeseburger without the pickles, fries, and a diet Dr. Pepper with lemon. If she's brave, she'll sneak a few of Andrew's animal style fries. So UnAH like but she fingers even Audrey broke down now and then.

**Fun tidbit: In and Out Restaurants are huge out here in Southern California. I had to ask them what you call the thing they put the fries in. It's a fry boat.
