Description

Today, Rachael talks to Priscilla Oliveras about why we binge-watch television and what it can do for our writing! 


PRISCILLA OLIVERAS is a USA Today bestselling author and 2018 RWA® RITA® double finalist who writes contemporary romance with a Latinx flavor. She and her work have earned praise from the Washington Post, New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Redbook, Publishers Weekly, and Booklist, amongst others. Priscilla earned her MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and currently serves as adjunct faculty in the program and teaches the online class "Romance Writing" for ed2go. While she's a devotee of the romance genre, Priscilla also considers herself a sports fan, beach lover, and Zumba aficionado, who often practices the art of napping in her backyard hammock.

Kdrama list, in order of Priscilla’s preference

Crash Landing on You (Hyun Bin, lead actor, *swoony sigh*) (also, great romantic soundtrack on YouTube)

Cinderella and Four Knights (hero has some moving Declaration lines, spunky heroine) (good soundtrack, too)

Romance is a Bonus Book (older heroine with spunk)

My Secret Romance 

Something in the Rain (liked the hero, not sure the heroine did enough to deserve him, good soundtrack)

Memories of Alhambra (a bit sci-fi-ish, Hyun Bin, needed a little more romance)
