Kate Rorick is in a good place...plus a book giveaway

We're pleased to have Kate Rorick at CLC today to celebrate the upcoming publication of her latest (but first solo) novel, The Baby Plan. She's here to joke around with us during Humor month and William Morrow has one copy of her book to share with a lucky reader!

Emmy Award-winning writer Kate Rorick is the author of The Baby Plan for William Morrow. She is also a television writer and producer, most recently for TNT's The Librarians. In 2014, Kate wrote for the You-Tube internet sensation, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, and co-authored two books based on the series, The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, and The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet.

In her vast spare time, she moonlights as the bestselling author of several historical romance novels written under the pseudonym Kate Noble.

Kate lives in Los Angeles with her family.

And yes, her hair is naturally curly.

Synopsis:
Meet the mothers…

Nathalie Kneller: Nathalie’s plan: to announce her pregnancy now that she’s finally made it past twelve weeks! But just as she’s about to deliver (so to speak) the big news to her family, her scene-stealing sister barfs all over the Thanksgiving centerpiece. Yup, Lyndi’s pregnant too, swiping the spotlight once more…

Lyndi Kneller: Lyndi’s plan: finally get her life together! She’s got a new apartment, new promotion, new boyfriend. What she didn’t count on—a new baby! She can barely afford her rent, much less a state-of-the-art stroller…

Sophia Nunez: Sophia’s plan: Once she gets her daughter Maisey off to college, she’ll finally be able to enjoy life as make-up artist to one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, and girlfriend to one of rock’s hottest musicians. But after 18 years she discovers the stork is once again on its way…

Now these women are about to jump headlong into the world of modern day pregnancy. It’s a world of over the top gender reveal parties (with tacky cakes and fireworks); where every morsel you eat is scrutinized and discussed; where baby names are crowd-sourced and sonograms are Facebook-shared. And where nothing goes as planned...

Funniest song you've heard
The state capitals song from Animaniacs. (Educational, too!)




What is your best celebrity impression (bonus if you have a video doing it)?
I do a decent Stewie Griffin from Family Guy and I will never, ever, ever have it committed to video.

Who is the funniest person you know (personally, not celebrity)?
My old boss John Rogers. He quit being a physicist to become a stand up comic so you hope he’s really good at the latter (or really bad at the former)

Who is the funniest celebrity, in your opinion?
I was going to say Amy Poehler in Parks and Rec was currently tied with Kristen Bell in The Good Place, but since Mike Schur created both shows I think a thimbleful of credit goes to him.

What classic Saturday Night Live skit/character is your favorite?
The Hillary Clinton/Sarah Palin sketch from the 2008 campaign is one of the most brilliant pieces of searingly feminist comedy we have ever been lucky to witness.

What is the funniest thing you own?
My complete collection of Eddie Izzard’s stand up specials on DVD. “Cake or Death!"

Thanks to Kate for the giggles and to William Morrow for sharing her book with our readers.

The funniest celebrity is Adam Sandler. His movies always make me laugh.

Melissa said...

Ellen DeGeneres always makes me laugh!

anna russell said...

Robin Williams was my favorite

Janine said...

Someone I personally know who makes me laugh would be my husband. His funny times are rare, so when he is being funny, they are special times.

Elisabeth said...

My dad is for sure the funniest person I know! When I'm with him, I can actually laugh for hours. :D

My 10 yr old niece comes out with some pretty hilarious things and she does it all quite unintentionally.

My husband and I have the same sense of humor. But then after 37 years together, I don't think that's unusual. So he's my go to funny guy. But, I have brothers in law that are big time pun people and have me laughing usually on Facebook.

My son is definitely entertaining.

Amanda Montiel said...

My boys for sure are the funniest!

My nephew Gabe

Connie said...

My daughter, Donni, is the funniest and most outgoing person I know. She's a Kindergarten teacher and her students love her. I keep saying that when she retires from that gig, she needs to take up being a comedian onstage. She's a hoot.

Dianne Casey said...

My sister. You never know what will come out of her mouth.

alanajoli said...

My cousin Morgan is a pretty darn funny dude.

Mary Preston said...

My daughter; such a quick wit.

John Smith said...

"Who is the funniest person you know (personally, NOT celebrity)?" Well, I was friends with a girl in college and she seemed fun and funny, but it turned out she was manic depressive....

This sounds SO good!! I love listening to David Sedaris, his real life humor just makes me laugh and not feel bad about my life or myself!
