Character Interview with Piper Anderson from Traci Highland's Miss Behave

Our guest character today is Piper Anderson from Traci Highland's romantic comedy, Miss Behave. Enjoy the interview!

What is your name?

Piper Anderson

What do you look like?

Oh darling, I look like a hot mess. My curls are always unruly but my clothes are simply fabulous.

Where are you today and what are you doing?

Today, cupcake, I am at work, thank you very much.  Typing away at this horrid advice column. 

Describe the outside of your home.

It’s a lopsided little cape on the lake.  I think it’s rather cramped, but my cat seems to like it.

You come face to face with your worse enemy. How do you react?

Darling, I would tuck my well-manicured nails into a little fist and give him a good punch on the jaw.  Seriously, though, I would probably just babble and then go home, sobbing, and think of fabulous retorts later that night.

A police officer stops you for a minor violation. What violation is that and how do you react?

It was most likely for streaking.  I know, I know, don’t go running around without clothing, but darling, it was hot and the water was so inviting.  Anyhow, I’d most likely gallantly attempt to defend my actions, but never deny them.

Open your wallet, purse, or briefcase. What do you find?

Tickets to the latest football game, lipstick, mascara, a brow pencil (brows are so in right now, darling), a mirror, my phone and I most likely forgot my wallet.

What scares you?


How would your parents describe you?

High maintenance, can you believe it?  Cheeky things, those parents.  That and they would say that I’m too sensitive.

Are you married or in a relationship?

No and no, sweetcheeks.

You just woke up to find that war has been declared. What’s the first thing you would do?

Grab a gallon of margaritas and hide in the closet.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A reporter.

If there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would that be?

I wish I had a tougher skin.  Metaphorically, of course.  I want my actual skin to be soft, but I really am terribly sensitive and wish I was a tad bit tougher, like my sister, Mags.

About the Author

Traci Highland writes funny books for sassy ladies.  She is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College and has a Master’s from Quinnipiac University.  She uses this education to write books, bake cakes, garden and make homemade jams.  Her children say she’s bossy, her husband says she’s high-maintenance, but the dog thinks she’s perfect.



About the Book:

She's great at giving advice, too bad she never takes it…

Anderson wants to be a serious journalist at a serious paper covering serious news. Instead, she’s stuck at the Pendleton Falls Herald, where her massive investigative skills are wasted penning
the paper’s advice column, Miss Behave.

Her shot at a meaty story comes when she’s assigned to write up a profile of a local business, Brookes Jewelers. She is determined to write the piece so she can use the article to impress a real paper.

Unfortunately Hunter Brookes, co-owner of Brookes Jewelers and the Pendleton Falls Herald, is rather persistent, in his own hot little way, that the piece should be nothing more than a glorified sales pitch.

But when diamonds disappear, Piper may get the chance to do a real investigation, leading her to confront family secrets and worst of all, turn to her mother for help.

Piper soon realizes that there is more to Mr. Brookes than a tight ass and a ridiculous fascination with name tags. Together they deal with roasted pigs, crazy cat ladies, and gun-toting fashionistas.

In all the chaos, they just might find the one thing that neither one was looking for: true love.
