Introducing a Character Q&A with Genny Moretti from Genevieve Grace written by Author Khristina Atkinson
Genny Montgomery has an almost perfect senior year of high school. The brainy girl that no boy has ever looked at twice ends up with the quarterback of the football team when Hank Moretti moves back to Carolina Bay looking for the girl he called GG, his special name for Genevieve Grace in elementary school.
Starting college with a new husband is not exactly how Genny planned her life. Especially, when Hank is so consumed with taking his college football team to the championship and going professional that he has little time for her. A handsome college professor, Dr. Max Lewis, starts giving her the attention she craves.
Hank is willing to do anything to save his marriage, including seeing a sex therapist after Genny is attacked. His efforts may be too late. He’s furious when he finds out Max wants Genny for himself.
Max is resentful that Genny obviously still has feelings for her ex. He knew better than to get involved with her but couldn’t help himself.
A murder mystery writer who lives next door, Bradley Kingston, gives Genny an advanced copy of his book. One of the men in her life uses his plot line to try and kill her.
Let’s have a chat with Genny Moretti…
*Where are you originally from Genny?
I’ve always lived in Carolina Bay, North Carolina. After my mom died, my father moved us into a house located right on the beach to try to get away from all of his memories.
*Where did you go to high school?
Andrew Jackson High School.
*Did you have a favorite subject?
I’ve wanted to become a psychologist ever since I can remember. A psychology class was offered as an elective, so that was definitely my favorite.
*What was Hank like in elementary?
He teased me constantly. I thought he was being mean when he called me GG. Little did I know he had a huge crush on me.
*When did your feelings for Hank materialize?
On the first day of my senior year of high school, I blatantly stared at him. He followed me home after school with an excuse that he needed help with an assignment. I already couldn’t stop thinking about him during my classes. They way his large, warm hand felt surrounding mine in the hallway. He kissed me twice on my couch, and it was amazing. I could stare at his gorgeous blue eyes all day.
*How long have you been married?
We were married the first time on April 16, 2011 while we were still in school. The second time was July 4, 2015.
*How’s college life going?
I decided to take a few semesters off. I needed a break after all I’ve been through.
*What are you and Hank Studying?
I was only able to attend part-time after my daughter was born on December 15, 2011. She cooperated and waiting until I was taking my last final before my contractions started. I, of course, am studying psychology. Hank graduated in May of 2015. I didn’t know until shortly before our second marriage that he’d changed his mind about majoring in business. He announced at the dinner when I proposed that he was the new history teacher at Carolina Bay Middle School.
*Who are your closest friends?
Brad Kaplan was my best friend until he lost his second battle with a rare form of leukemia in April of 2015. I still keep in touch with Emma Griffith. She and I were lassies together in high school.
*Tell us three things about yourself we don’t know.
I would give anything to spend one more minute with my mom. She died suddenly when I was eleven before I even got to tell her goodbye. If I could go back, I would have tried harder with Hank during our first marriage. I can admit now that I made so many mistakes. I wish I’d never found my mom’s romance novels. I was young and naive. I believed romance could be exactly as portrayed in the pages which led to false expectations. This caused a lot of problems in my relationship with Hank.
Nice chatting with you Genny!!!
