A Book and a Chat with Daisy Jordan

Today’s guest Daisy Jordan, grew up spending many summers at her grandparents house, banging away at an old typewriter as well as watching tennis on their very old TV. Those stories never seemed to get finished, but this did not stop Daisy from following her love of English, enabling her to graduate with degrees in psychology and English education.

Then came the first of her books, “Everything Happens for a Reason” produced in February 2004 is the story of a year in the life of a group of college friends: Jill, Hilton, Laney, Natalie, Todd, Adam, and Luke (to name the main ones).

Following the success of “Everything Happens for a Reason” Daisy actually went back producing a whole range of “prequels” in what was to become “Spin the Bottle” series about the heroes of “Everything Happens for a Reason” as they make their way in a set of four books through their high school years.

Next for Daisy came “All That Sparkles Isn't Real Sapphire” which is about are about Lorylyn's college life, experiences, and friends.

Finally in her new book “Love Means Zero” Daisy has been able to go back to her love of tennis and mix that with a follow up story about a few of her characters.


Love Means Zero is about Hilton, a recent college grad with a dead-end job at a portrait studio, unexpectedly landing a freelance role with Game Set Match magazine, which she refers to as “the Us Weekly of tennis.” Hilton has always dreamed of traveling the world and taking gorgeous photographs, and suddenly, she is doing just that. It’s about the best life she can imagine—partying with the players and their famous girlfriends, seeing fantastic tennis every day, and jetting off to a new place every week. But for her boyfriend Luke, it’s about the worst life he can imagine. He’s stuck at home in Indiana finishing law school, and the more Hilton’s gone, the less she seems to miss him. As he closes off from her and harbors a relationship-changing secret, Hilton, a happy-go-lucky believer in love and fate, laughs off her feelings for one of the world’s top-ranked tennis players as nothing more than a celebrity crush. But then, in one intense, heart-wrenching, thrilling, and thought-provoking moment, Hilton’s world turns upside down as she starts to see that love may not be as powerful or fate-determining as she thought.

During the show Daisy not only shared with us about her past work and writing experiance but also about the several new books she is currently working on.
