Catherine McKenzie brings law and order to chick lit, plus a book giveaway

Introduction by 
Kathryn Hamilton

**Giveaway is now closed**

Please welcome my fellow Canadian, author Catherine McKenzie to CLC. She is here on her BIRTHDAY (such an honour for us) to talk TV and also has her latest book to give away! Catherine is celebrating the US release of her third novel Forgotten (reviewed here)which, if the success of her two previous novels is any indication, is bound to be a reader favourite. This down-to-earth author grew up in Montreal, Quebec, where she went to school and continues to live. When she’s not busy creating wonderful, smart stories, Catherine continues her work as a lawyer. With her continuing success, readers are unlikely to forget Catherine McKenzie any time in the near future! F√©licitations!

Thanks to HarperCollins for giving away TWO copies of "Forgotten" to some lucky readers in the US or Canada. And for one day only, Catherine has a special birthday giveaway going on at her Facebook page (also US/Canada only). Stop by for a chance to win an awesome prize!

You can find Catherine at her website, Facebook and Twitter.

Favorite awards show: 
The Golden Globes

TV show you'd love to see a musical episode of:
It's already been done. Buffy, the musical episode. You can't top perfection

If Emma from Forgotten were to play a part on any TV series (now or from the past), which would it be and what kind of character would she play? 
Alicia Florrick from The Good Wife

Since Emma is a lawyer, what is your favorite crime/law TV series:
Currently, The Good Wife

TV show you didn't watch as a kid (because you were too young to appreciate it) but would have watched if it were still around now:
Mmm, tough one. Honestly, nothing comes to mind. Suggestions?

A Walking Dead musical, perhaps? Not sure if it's been done but the cast of 30 Rock would do a killer musical episode!

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I love that show so much and they sometimes do plays which are hilarious. I can only imagine how funny a complete musical episode would be. Also, I'm a little (or a lot) in love with Charlie Day :)

Hmmm...I want the nightly news in song. Maybe then a horrible economy and unrest in the world will sound a little less frightening.

I don't love musical episodes, but perhaps Modern Family.

Dolly said...

I watch a lot of crime dramas; my latest favorite is 'Perception', which I picture as an opera if they'd do a musical episode!

I'll be honest, I watch a lot of bad reality tv, and I think a musical episode of Teen Mom or the Real Housewives could be too much to handle! So, I'll go for the only drama I watch and say Hart of Dixie!

I like to watch dramas and I really can't imagine something like Law & Order SVU breaking out in song. Or Criminal Minds. And that episode of Grey's was too over the top. So, if there was one and I knew it, I probably wouldn't watch it.
