Quick Q&A With Katie McGarry, Author Of Pushing The Limits.

Today I have the pleasure of  posting a few Q&A from Katie McGarry, author of the fantastic beyond words 'Pushing The Limits'.
Everybody needs to read this book!

1. I absolutely loved this book, have you always had this kind of a storyline in mind for your first book?

First off, thank you for the kind words about Pushing the Limits and to answer your question, I always knew that I wanted to write a love story. I adore writing those moments that make my heart flutter.

2. I loved all the characters in this book, were any of them based on anybody you know?

No, but I will say that I put a piece of myself, no matter how small, into each of my characters. Echo has my sarcasm, Beth encompasses my fears, Isaiah and Lila share my loyalty, and Noah has my passion to love.

3. You touch on a lot of topics in this book mental illness, abuse, memory-loss, death and love. I ended up in tears a few times, how emotionally involved did you get while writing it?

When I write, I “become” my characters. Their highs are my highs. Their hurts become my hurts. I cried several times while writing Pushing the Limits, but I also laughed quite a bit too.

A Big Thanks To Katie For Her Time.

Pushing The Limits Synopsis.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with “freaky” scars on her arms. Even Echo can’t remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.

But when Noah Hutchins--the smoking hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket--explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo’s world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she’ll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.
