And I interviewed him!

Getting to do the interview 
over the phone is the best part for me
starting with the "Hey, babe," 
that came in lieu of hello. *swoons* 


Morgan: Let’s start easy: Cats or Dogs?

Ryan: Dogs. I have an American Eskimo named Kobe.

Morgan: Favorite sport?

Ryan: Ooo… I don’t know if Body-building’s a sport. I’ll go with baseball. I played center field in high school. I probably should have said left field, huh? *laughs*

Morgan: Where is your favorite place on earth?

Ryan: Um, ah, that’s a tough one. I’ll say the beach in Laguna.

Morgan: What do you do to relax?

Ryan: Go to the gym.

Morgan: You know, Ricky goes to the gym when he needs to unwind.

Ryan: That’s cool.

Morgan: Pretty authentic, huh?

Ryan: *laughs* Yep.

Morgan: What do you look for in a woman?

Ryan: Independence.

Morgan: Are you single?

Ryan: Yes.

Morgan: Are you a hopeless romantic or just an average Joe?

Ryan: A hopeless romantic.

Morgan: Do you prefer to stay in and cook or to go out?

Ryan: Go out. 100 percent.

Morgan: So, what’s your favorite restaurant?

Ryan: Extreme Sushi

Morgan: What’s your favorite thing to do in Las Vegas?

Ryan: Um, I don’t know. Go to the movies.

Morgan: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Ryan: My height.

Morgan: What’s your favorite season?

Ryan: Summer.

Morgan: What was the last book you read?

Ryan: LUCKY 13.

Morgan: *gets giddy* You actually read it?

Ryan: Of course I did.

Morgan: *still blushing* If you could be a character in any book, who would it be? Why?

Ryan: I’d be in LUCKY 13 because it’s written by an amazing author and has a stud on the cover. *laughs*

Morgan: Do you consider yourself the “Hero” or the “Bad Boy”?

Ryan: Bad boy.
Morgan: How do your family and friends feel about your being on the cover of LUCKY 13?
Ryan: They think it’s cool. It’s right up my alley.

Morgan: Was LUCKY 13 a one-time-deal or will we see you on more book covers?

Ryan: Hopefully you’ll see me on more book covers.

Morgan: One last question: After attending Arizona Dreamin’ 2012, do large groups of women scare you?

Ryan: No. No, not at all. As long as they’re friendly and not hostile.


Morgan: Anything you want to add?

Ryan: Yeah. Vote for LUCKY 13 by Morgan Kearns for Best Contemporary: Jocks, Cop & Cowboys! I am Ryan Diaz and I approve this message. *laughs*


And I gotta give a huge shout-out to Ryan. He’s an amazing guy with an easy-going humor that’s contagious. I’m still smiling.

Stay tuned for mine and Ryan's version of how we met. 
Warning: they are hilarious!

Please show ENRIQUE SANTIAGO a little love...
