About She Wants it All…

Happy to sing cover songs with his band and float through New Jersey University with little to no effort, Dave Novak spends the first week of college partying. Then he meets Maggie Patrinski. Performing on stage in front of hundreds is easy for Dave, but the mere thought of Maggie sends his heart racing and turns him into a bumbling idiot. Even so, he can’t get her out of his mind.

Maggie’s not exactly thrilled when her roommate sets her up with Second Floor Dave, the hottie with a reputation. Not only has she just had her heart broken, but she’s vying for a competitive summer internship and studying to become a vet. She doesn’t have time for guys and isn’t interested in falling in love, especially when she may be moving across the country for the summer.

But as Maggie gets to know Dave, his charm wins her over and she falls hard and fast. The problem? Maggie has goals, Dave doesn’t. Maggie studies, Dave doesn’t. Maggie wants it all, Dave only wants her. With their summer plans up in the air and past mistakes creeping back into their lives, their future together is uncertain. The only thing they’re sure of is that when they’re together, they’re better.

Jessica Calla and the Inside Scoop on Sheridan Hall

I’m so excited for the release of Book 2 of my Sheridan Hall series! Thank you, Paula, for hosting me during my blog tour.

If you’ve read Book 1 of the series, She Laughs in Pink, you know that the characters live in the basement of their dorm. I’ve never told anyone this, but Sheridan Hall is based on my freshman dorm at the University of Delaware (Go Blue Hens!).

My freshman year at Delaware was spent in the basement of Cannon Hall. I’ll never forget opening that housing slip during the summer before I started and the excitement of moving to college. Tripled up in a double, my two roommates and I took over room “001.” Of course, we didn’t realize room one was in the basement until we moved in! Despite that fact, I had a great year.

The Cannon Hall basement (circa the 90’s) is exactly what I imagined while writing She Laughs in Pink. The rooms were on one side of the hallway, the lounge and bathrooms on the other. In fact, the only differences between the real Cannon Hall and the fictional Sheridan are that in Cannon, the dorm’s laundry room was in the basement (early drafts of She Laughs had the characters in and out of the laundry room too), and that the lounge in Cannon was an unusable dump. The Sheridan lounge is much nicer and the floormates socialize there often.

My roommates and I shared the room that I imagine Juliet and Pooja in. The room that Rocco and Frank share, room four, was occupied by two handsome bodybuilder brothers in Cannon Hall. Poppy and Darcy in She Laughs symbolize the mysterious roommates from room five who we never saw in Cannon. Even the external set up of the fictional New Jersey University—the parking lot behind Sheridan, the placement of the Student Center, north and south campus—is taken from the Delaware campus at the time I attended.

There were pros and cons to living in the basement. For the pros, we were able to stay out of the drama on the upper floors. As an introvert known for three hour naps, I was happy to hide in my room and let the world happen over my head. Also, like the group at Sheridan, we were a close-knit bunch. With only six or so rooms, we knew and understood each other. Mostly, we watched out for each other like family, much like the Sheridan gang.

As for the cons, well, I guess I could list the same things! Life was happening above us, and the basement crew was considered the weird clique who never got invited to anything. Being underground, we also had some bugs. Not fun.

The name “Sheridan” comes from a phone list on my desk at the time I drafted the book. I worked for a nice man named Sheridan, and I liked the way it sounded. I’m sure he has no clue that (a) I wrote a book, and (b) named the entire series after him. After the first book published, I realized that “Sheridan” also starts with “She,” which is the common name of the books’ titles (She Laughs in Pink, She Runs Away, and Book 3 coming in May 2017, She Wants it All).

I love writing the series and new adult college contemporaries. College was such a strange, wonderful time for me. I met awesome people who taught me so much about life, family and love. My roommates were my best friends for a long time. We’ve all since moved on into our own lives, but I think of them often. In some ways, they saved my life. That’s how important they were to me, and I’ll always cherish them.

Now that I’m “older” (*clears throat), I have a new perspective on my time as an older teen/young twenty-something at Delaware. I didn’t realize the extent to which my college years and the people with whom I surrounded myself would mold me into the person I am today. During college, I experienced so many “firsts.” When I write my characters, I try to have them experiencing their “firsts” too, in this new setting of their college lives.

A little spoiler: Book 3 moves out of the basement a bit. It involves a character living on the second floor of Sheridan, affectionately nicknamed “Second Floor Dave” by the basement crew. You’ll meet Dave in Book 2 when he causes some stress between Ben and Meg.

I wish I could stay in Sheridan for a hundred more books! At the moment, the series will end with Book 3. But you never know what the future may bring. I may succumb to the urge to keep going with it and surprise you all (and my publisher as well!).

Thank you for checking out this post and for trying the Sheridan Hall series. Shout out to the folks at U of D, and especially those who’ve had the privilege to live in the basement of Cannon Hall. Sheridan Hall is written for you.
