How did A Lovestruck Freshman come to be?
“A Lovestruck Freshman” came to be after I decided in sophomore year of college that I didn’t want to write screenplays full time. I needed a voice. There isn’t that much voice in film and it really disappointed me in college. (I was a screenwriting major at Loyola Marymount.) I wanted to tell a story in first person. I always loved prose. So how could I do that? Books, of course. And I just started writing. I let every emotion I had out. This book is true to me. Not every thought in this book is mine, but it is of those around me. I write what I know, as well as what I notice. Also, I thought there needed to be a book out there about Greek life. Greek life doesn’t have to be a bad, hazing-ridden world. In fact, it usually isn’t. We just read about the bad seeds. This story sheds light on real Greek life, the good and the bad, and doesn’t leave much out. Doesn’t everyone want to know the secrets of Greek life?
