The fun and free-spirited Konni Granma gave us the inside scoop to her latest novel “The Lonely Hearts Bar”. The story is a must read for anyone who loves cinema and all things Hollywood. We love Konni’s unique writing style. Her zest for life and adventure is captured perfectly in her stories. We sat down with Konni and learned a little more about what made her tick:
Q. If you could give your book to one celebrity, who would it be and why?
A. Ethan Hawke, because when I was writing “The Lonely Hearts Bar”, as the hero of Mr. BB, I saw him. For some reason it seems to me that he will understand this character like no other.
Q. Who is your biggest writing inspiration?
My mom and dad, and their faith in my dreams.
Q. If you could give your book to one singer/musician, who would it be and why?
A. It would be the composer Thomas Newman, because I wrote “The Lonely Hearts Bar”, listening his compositions from the movie “Meet Joe Black”.
Q. Give us the scoop on YOUR great love story!
A. I am 21 years old and the only love story in my life is my crazy love for the characters of my books.
Q. If your book was turned into a film/TV show, who would you tap to play the lead(s)? Why?
I believe that this will really happen, and on the cinema screens I will see the inscription “The Lonely Hearts Bar”, and in the main role of Mr. BB I will see my dear Mr. Ethan Hawke in a black T-shirt, dark gray jeans and purple converse. And it will be incredibly cool to watch how, after 30 years, the scene from «Dead Poets Society» will be repeated, only now he will be in the role of John Keating. This is very touching.
Q. What’s one secret about you that you’ll share with the world?
I’m not sure that I have any secrets. After all, I wrote a book and published it, and this story is a huge collective image of my life. I am very honest with my readers. Today, I am saving up new secrets for the next book calling “Pulse” 🙂
Q. What is the core message you want to deliver to the world through your writing/books/stories?
A. I want the world to forever remember the words of Mr. BB, that… there is a beginning of what we believe in. And when it gets scary, “throw everything to the wind.”
