My Life as a Book – Nobody Does it Better: Guest Blogger Author Daisy Jordan

Today I am pleased to welcome guest blogger Daisy Jordan, author of Love Means Zero:

A chance encounter in a Rome hotel, two tremendously damaging photographs, and Hilton Joliet’s life is instantly altered. Previously working a dead-end job as an assistant in a portrait studio, she is now a freelance photographer for Game Set Match magazine, “the Us Weekly of tennis,” as she calls it.

Thrown rapidly into a jet-setting life of world-class tennis, the best seats at the best matches, and trailing the hottest young tennis stars and their model and actress girlfriends, Hilton, a former tennis player herself, can’t imagine a more fun job or a better way to jump-start her career while her boyfriend Luke finishes law school.

Author Daisy Jordan is an obsessive tennis fan and wrote Love Means Zero so she could live out her dream-job fantasy through Hilton.

But don’t worry if you’re not a tennis fan, Love Means Zero still has all the drama and suspense of Daisy’s previous books, which include Everything Happens for a Reason…, the Spin the Bottle series, and All That Sparkles Isn’t Real Sapphire. And without further ado, here’s Daisy…


My Life as a Book – Nobody Does it Better

When I saw Elizabeth’s “My Life as a Book 2010” post, I couldn’t resist doing one of my own! I took the liberty of adding some additional questions from a similar activity I did on Facebook awhile ago. But instead of using books I’ve read in 2010 for the answers, I used some of my all-time favorites. I also included all of my own books. 🙂

Before she published her first book, Daisy grew up in Indiana watching tennis all summer every summer on TV and having her own fair share of high school and college boy drama, similar to her characters. She now lives in Denver and religiously fills out brackets for every Grand Slam with her brother Josh, while still managing to find time for boy drama. To learn more about Daisy you can visit her official website, as well as find her on Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace.
