While I was in Vegas for the Naughty Mafia Rocks Vegas Signing, I had the opportunity to sit down with USA Today Bestselling Author Rebecca Donovan. In our hour long conversation, Rebecca and I talked about the entire writing process that she went through while writing the series, love triangles, alternate endings, seeing The Breathing Series on screen and what we can look forward to seeing from Rebecca in the near future.

This is PART ONE of a three part interview. In this part, Rebecca answered some of my questions that were related directly to the series. I have broken the interview into short clips.
