Sometimes engagement rings can get lost and then found. Sometimes people can too. All it takes is a heavy-duty dose of karma and the magic of Manhattan to make it all come together.

Leah is a financially destitute new age hippy. James is a wealthy surgeon with a trust fund. She’s awkward, he’s poised. She’s completely crazy, he’s way too sane. People might say they have nothing in common, but they’d be wrong. They both live in Manhattan, they both have no idea how to change a baby diaper, and they’re both lost … until they find one another.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW
Craves the Angst is honored to have Elle Casey as our guest for the day. Check out the five questions we asked her and what she had to say...

1) Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a 46-year-old former lawyer, former veteran of the USAF, former stock broker, former restaurant owner, former CEO, turned writer. I have 1 husband (second one’s a charm), 3 kids, 2 dogs, and 2 horses (I’m angling for a third, though). I’m American, but I live in southern France. I moved here in 2010 for a one-year adventure and never left. I own a small winery that produces kickass red wine (syrah and grenache grapes), and I like to travel both to the US and here in Europe. I also enjoy camping, but I do it with my tiny caravan so I can sleep on a real bed. I love to ride my horse, and I take lessons several times a week; I only started two years ago, so I have a lot to learn and a great fear of dying. I dream of riding across France on horseback someday, and I’m sure I’ll eventually do it. I’ve been married for 12 years to the nicest, most considerate and patient man in the entire world. I kissed a lot of frogs before I found my prince, but he was worth the wait. He taught me that real romance and real love exists and that all us girls deserve to have it. I support women in business and independent women who want to make their lives better through hard work and dedication to good causes. I’m a sucker for baby animal videos or dog or cat videos, so if I’m on my computer and not writing, I’m probably watching those on my Facebook feed. My kids say I’m mean and funny, and my dogs sleep at my feet every night. My favorite fairground snack is cotton candy, and I have a terrible sweet tooth when the fair is not in session. My favorite cookie is the pecan sandie. (Is this enough? Or TMI?  I could go on…)

2) How did you choose the genre you write in?
I write in every single genre that interests me as a reader, so right now that includes romance, paranormal, fantasy, science fiction, action/adventure, thriller, suspense … I might even try mystery one of these days (I’ve been binging on Castle re-runs).

3) Where do you get your ideas?
Life. My past. My future. Things I see on the street or dream about. Sometimes weird stories on Yahoo.com too.

4) How did you come up with this book’s title?
I knew I was going to write about New York City because the city is so interesting, and a family of people who are looking for love and forgiveness and ways to mend broken hearts, so it was kind of easy from there. As far as the subtitle “Lost and Found”, I was at a fountain one day and saw something sparkly inside (just a coin), but I wondered what I’d do if I ever found a diamond ring in a fountain. And so, the story and the titles were born!

5) What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
My favorite chapters are always the first ones of any book because it’s there that I meet my main characters. They become like family or close friends to me as they move through the pages.
