Interview with Lisa:
What are your favorite humor books?
--Politically incorrect humor. Chelsea Handler is my queen bee, so I love all her books, namely Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea and My Horizontal Life (Chelsea autographed my copy! Squeee!) Viva la Chuy Bravo! I’m also a huge fan of The Office and I’ve just inhaled Mindy Kaling’s book, and it has now taken its spot at the top of my favorites list. Along with [crap] My Dad Says and The Princess and The Penis.
How much of your humor is based on real life experiences?
Do you feel being digitally epublished allows you to be more creative with your writing choices?
--Furr shore! I don’t have to worry about offending anyone; I can just write without being censored, and that, in a way allows my creative juices to flow.
If they made a movie out of one of your books, what actors would play the main characters?
--Good question. I made a YouTube video of my dream cast a while back. You can check it out here
What should readers expect from a Lisa Lim book?
--A one-two-three punch of hilarity, heart and crassness.
If people judged your books by their covers, what hijinks would they miss out on?
--To quote one of my readers: a chock full of bons mots.
What's the funniest part of your everyday life?
--My dogs eat their own poo.
If www.theonion.com wrote a fake headline about your life, what would it be?
--Lisa Lim, author of Confessions of a Call Center Gal, is actually a Call Girl who gives explosive orgasms.
If you weren't writing humorous books, what would you be doing for a living?
--I’d still be working at the blasted call center. The best part about writing a humorous book is that I’ve been able to quit my job and give them the finger.
Why don't you think there's more humorous books out there?
What's next for your fans?
--I’m working on a novella with my niece. It’s a YA humorous book that will be out in December, and it’s called My Mormon Crush, My Dog Eats Poo.
And next year, I plan on writing a sequel to Confessions of a Call Center Gal. It’ll be a chick lit comedy about climbing the corporate ladder . . . in a call center.
