in Fun Author Tidbits

Welcome to the 42nd installment of “You’ll Never Believe…”

For those that don’t know what these new featurettes will be about, here is the scoop! “You’ll Never Believe…” will feature the weirdest questions or encounters that authors have been asked/had. Might be about their books or random things, like meetings in a bathroom where someone asked what brand of toilet paper they normally use. Fun stuff and inside scoops that an author would not normally share.

Today’s “You’ll Never Believe…” celebrates the release of Rebecca Grace Allen’s latest book “The Hierarchy of Needs (Portland Rebels)”.  In this one, the author tells us about how… “one of the weirdest days overall was my first date with my husband.”

Thanks for having me! I’m Rebecca Grace Allen, author of kinky new adult and contemporary BDSM. I’ve had a lot of weird things happen in my life (hasn’t everyone?) but perhaps one of the weirdest days overall was my first date with my husband.

We met online, and at the time he lived a bit north of me. He took a train down to meet me, but missed the one he was initially supposed to take, and I got into a fender-bender on my way to pick him up at the station! When we finally met, it wasn’t the love-at-first-sight, oh-he’s-so-sexy moment I love to write about.

He was starving and was stuffing down a bagel, and I was all disheveled from being yelled at by the driver I’d hit. We got along fine anyway, and went to our planned outing at the Museum of Sex in NYC, but the exhibit about the history of pornography ended up being somewhat less than sexy (hello, un-bathed prostitutes of the 19th century!), and both of us were pretty weirded out.

The night culminated in him missing his train back as well. Rather than having the weird ‘hey guy I just met, sure you can sleep at my house’ I offered to drive him home, not realizing he lived an hour further away than I thought! After a five hour round-trip drive, (during which I blasted the air conditioning to keep me awake even though it was the middle of February) I finally arrived home. Good thing my now-hubs was cute, and knew to call me the next day!

I went out on a first date to Baltimore Inner Harbor, which was two hours away from home. A homeless guy tried to mug us, luckily for me the guy I was with worked out often and he took care of the matter. I still love the Inner Harbor but that was the last date with him.

I think the craziest first date I ever had was going swimming in a guy’s pool and hanging out in his hot tub! Yikes!
