My Mini Interview with C.C. Dado
Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing C.C. Dado author of Imposter in Zebra-striped Briefs…
Hi, C.C, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
I am a native of the Pacific Northwest. I’m a bit of a hypochondriac sundae, with claustrophobic sprinkles, and a big cherry of anxiety on top, so I don’t travel much. I read and write to relax my mind. I tend to write painfully awkward, usually embarrassing, romance because long confident gazes followed by sexy dancing never happens to me.
Imposter in Zebra-striped Briefs is about taking chances, making friends and falling for someone that you never thought you could have.
• What book do you wish you could have written?
Shel Silverstein “Where the sidewalk ends” it oozes creativity on every page.
• How important are names to you (in your books)? Do you choose names based on liking the way it sounds or meaning? How do you choose your names?
Names are very important, it’s like the wrapping on a gift, but there is no reasoning so far for me in picking one. I have three books currently published or in the publishing process and I picked the names after the book was complete, I wanted the whole story to tell me what the name should be, but that’s not how it always works. I had a brainstorm the other day on a new story and I have one page of notes on the new story and the title was obvious to me.
• Were you already a great writer? Have you always enjoyed writing? How long have you been writing?
I have always said literacy is my kryptonite, and to a certain extent it still is. So no, I have not always been a writer. I would consider myself a story teller not a writer.
• Which character, from any of your books, do you consider your greatest work?
I would say “Elliot” from Meet-Cute is my favorite, only because he is a self-deprecating version of me so it was easy to flow through the scenes. The friendship between Nathan and Josh in Imposter in Zebra-striped Briefs is a close second though.
• What hobbies do you enjoy?
- Thank you, C.C., for the great answers and for stopping by today.
When recent college graduate Nathan Harris makes a life-changing move out from under his mother’s thumb and into his own place, he is determined to take some risks. He is tired of not being good enough, tired of allowing his fears to control him.
What he thought would be an exciting adventure ends up being one jaw-dropping mishap of embarrassment after another, leaving him with a life he doesn’t even recognize anymore.
His once boring, lonely existence has been replaced by a brownstone filled with colorful friends, a rough around the edges, tattooed bad boy best friend, and a stripper for a boyfriend who’s not even sure he’s gay.

Ding…. He heard his phone go off again as he was grabbing an orange from the fridge. Nathan set the orange on the counter and pulled his phone out of his pocket.
Maybe I’m jumping the gun here. What are you into?
Nathan wasn’t quite sure how to answer that. He leaned back against the kitchen counter and stared at the keypad for a second before responding. Guys?
Ding…. I’m literally shaking my head at you right now….
Ding…. Josh instantly followed up his last text. I meant what turns you on about a guy. Eyes? A nice ass? I need to know what I’m working with here.
Nathan felt like the entire world could see his words as he typed his response. I think men’s feet are sexy.
Ding… Josh responded, apparently not fazed at all by Nathan’s answer. All right then, let’s start at the toes and work our way up.
About the author:
I write painfully awkward, usually embarrassing, romance because long confident gazes followed by sexy dancing never happens to me.
I am a native of the Pacific Northwest, and will probably never leave since I’m a hypochondriac sundae, with claustrophobic sprinkles, and a cherry of anxiety on top. I read and write to relax my mind and I love getting lost in someone else’s story, even if it is only for a little while.
