**Note: the giveaway is now closed. Winners will be announced shortly.

We continue the countdown to the April 2nd release of Love Irresistibly with… another giveaway!

The next book up is A Lot Like Love, the second book in the FBI/US Attorney series. (FYI, for those of you who aren’t familiar, the books are a “series” in the sense that they are set in a shared world and some characters make appearances in later books. But I write each book as a standalone, so you should feel free to jump in wherever you like!)

Now, normally, this is the part where I would post the book blurb for A Lot Like Love. But we’re going to do things a little differently today… and I have a feeling you’re all going to enjoy this.

Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook may recall that I met with an FBI Special Agent a few weeks ago, as research for the series. I’d posted this question on Facebook: Jotting down questions for tomorrow’s meeting with a new FBI contact. Anything any of you are dying to know about special agents?

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to ask all your questions during our meeting. But Mr. Special Agent just so happened to spot the questions readers posted on my Facebook page, and he ever so graciously sent me answers to those questions. [Seriously, how cool is Mr. Special Agent for doing this?]

So this week, not only do I have a $25 gift card to Amazon/Barnes & Noble and five signed copies of A Lot Like Love up for grabs, but you get a little bit of insight into the life of an active FBI agent.

Now, on to your questions–what you are dying to know about FBI agents–and the answers from Mr. Special Agent himself:

Q. How long is the training for FBI agents?

FBI training, at Quantico, Virginia is 21 weeks long.  The training focuses on academics such as legal, forensics and counter intelligence training, firearms training, and defensive tactics.  There is an entire town mockup called Hogan’s Alley where professional role players are bad guys and witnesses and we practice everything from interrogations to high-risk car stops.  Here is a link for more information: http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/training

Q. How can I get one?!

Well, a surefire way to meet FBI agents is to commit a federal crime.  That is guaranteed to get us knocking down your door.

Q. How can you do undercover work if your face is known?SAYcoverBerkley

Undercover work is not for everyone.  Agents who do undercover work are specially trained and typically avoid the media.  When you see FBI agents at press conferences you are usually seeing the agents designated by the office for such duties.

Q. Why do they only wear black and grey suits?

Actually I own suits in blue and brown as well.  I even have a green suit with a black stripe I break out when I am feeling crazy.

Q. 1) Do FBI agents and us attorney’s ever get involved like in your book, 2)how long do you need to be an agent before you go undercover, 3)do you need a undergraduate degree to get into the academy, 4)is it hard to married or have a girlfriend and be in the FBI agent

These are excellent questions and encompass too much for this venue.  None of these answers will really do your questions justice.

1.  Agents and US Attorneys work closely together and sometimes when two single people work closely together romance forms. I do not know of any FBI/ASUA couples, though I do know a Assistant US Attorney engaged to a DEA agent.

2. There are so many forms of undercover work and the requirements for each vary so much there simply is no standard answer for this.

3. A four-year degree from an accredited school is one of the basic requirements for the Special Agent position. There are many more and they can be found here: https://www.fbijobs.gov/111.asp

4. I could spend days discussing your fourth question. It is more difficult. I dated a woman I really liked who broke up with me. Months later we spoke and she told me it was because every day she didn’t hear from me she worried I was hurt or dead. I constantly remind friends not to walk up and say hello to me if they see me out because I could be working. Also my spouse needs to have my undercover legend memorized in case we are out and someone who knows me by another identity walks up and starts a conversation. So there are some things that make it more difficult. The hardest part is the schedule which can vary with no notice and living with a person who has a ‘go bag’ packed and might end the day in another country with no notice.

9780425246955_AboutThatNig_CV.inddQ. Relationships? Are they even possible?

Despite some complications mentioned above relationships are very possible in this profession and the vast majority of agents are married.

Q.  One how do they live with them self’s knowing that most days they have to lie to people? with that said can they just turn the lie on and off like an actor acting in a scene? How much do they have to cover up their job from friends and family? Since their lives could be on the line do they trust people easy even people they work with? What makes their job worth it to them? 

I’m not sure what you are referring to here.  If you mean undercover work, yes it is extremely stressful.  Most of the work we do is in offices in front of computers.  Typically undercover work is a set duration of time so you know you only have to get through for so long.  In this job you are literally saving lives.  I have picked up children and carried them in my arms out of the filthy basement where they have lived their entire lives being constantly abused.  Depending what violations you work finding value in what you do can be easy.

Q.  Do most FBI agents apply through the FBI website or are they recruited? (If the latter, usually from where?)

Everyone applies through the website.  The only type of recruiting is when we meet someone we think would be a good agent we would encourage them to apply.

Q. Do they ever arrest anyone saying “you have the right to remain sexy”? 

Um…  No.

Q. What background do they have to have before becoming FBI Agent?

This is another complicated answer.  The FBI philosophy is that we can teach the law enforcement but we can’t teach the thousands of skills we need to investigate the more than 1300 violations we work.  So backgrounds are varied.  The average age of a new agent is 31 and we consider this a second career job.  We look for people who are successful in their current career and have received promotions and increased responsibility.

Q. I guess it would be inappropriate for you to just hand over my phone number, right?comps_LoveIrr.indd

We are the FBI.  We already have your phone number.

Q. Which is the proportion analysts/ field agents? How many hours spent an agent actively working and how many behind a desk?

This is another complicated question.  There are multiple types of analysts including Intelligence Analysts and Operations Specialists.  Typically a squad of 8-10 agents might have one of each type.  Then the office might have a squad, or more if the office is large enough, made up entirely of analysts for bigger projects.  My personal opinion is that about 20% of our time involves active investigation and 80% involves the desk.

Q. Hey, I’m a girl so just going to ask you to ask them, Boxers or Briefs! Just putting it out there, y’all know you wanna know!

Unfortunately my conversation with Julie was too short for everything she wanted to cover and the topic of underwear never came up.

[Julie, snapping fingers: I knew I forgot to ask something!]

Q. What previous experience is required & can they become FBI straight away or do they need to do other law enforcement stuff first? What’s the youngest an FBI Agent can be?

The minimum agent to become a Special Agent is 23, though I have never heard of a 23 year-old agent.  The youngest I have known was 25 and was hired for his computer science degree.  We hire people with all types of experience but the typical successful candidate is around 31 with an advanced degree.  For analyst positions the criteria are totally different.  Here is a link if you would like more information: https://www.fbijobs.gov/index.asp

Q. Yeah, are you single? Lol

Sorry, but I am no longer single.

***

There you have it, folks. Thank you so much to Mr. Special Agent for taking the time to answer these questions! Don’t be surprised if you all see a lot of this info making it’s way into one of my books.

    Thank you Julie and your Special Agent contact! That was very interesting and entertaining. My cousin is a FBI agent, so I already knew about the second career trend, as he left the marines to become an agent. Maybe I should ask him the “boxers or briefs” question… Or, I could ask his wife (also former military and still in the Reserves). She would think it hysterically funny!

  84. Ann

    Very entertaining interview with Mr. Special Agent. I was part of a background check once for an old family friend entering the FBI (they were probably verifying he didn’t grow up in the Soviet bloc – if that doesn’t show my age – and that he hadn’t formed any attachments to illegal substances), but that agent was NOWHERE NEAR this funny! Can’t wait for your next book!

  85. Brandi

    It must be enouraging to be able to interview all types of people and put them into whatever character you want.

  86. LSUReader

    Thanks for the post. It’s always interesting to learn more about what puts the Special in Special Agent.

  94. Sheila Schwartz

    Wow this was a terrific and very enlightening interview and very fun……..I think I want one for my own but alas (always wanted a reason to use that) my husband said no…..something about not keeping FBI agents on leashes? Bummer! (Mr. Special Agent has a great sense of humor!)

  95. winnie

  96. Tara Cole

  98. Samantha S.

    OMG! I can’t believe people asked about the boxers/briefs stuff :)) Thank you for the interview.

  101. Elise

    This could be my new career, undercover FBI agent. Although, it seems like they don’t get a lot of reading time…hmmm.

  102. Gail Y

    This was great. I may be biased but I think his response to my question/comment was the best! He definitely has more humor than the Homeland Security guy I was married to.

  103. Sandy

    Mmm.. Mr. FBI Special Agent sounds hot! ;)

  104. Katrina

    Great interview. <3

  105. Jeanette Juan

  111. Mariska

    great questions and love the answers :) this is so fun !

  112. Dee M St Lawrence

    I was just reading everyones replys and I noticed that I made a typing error in my reply No97. I wrote Julia NOT JULIE; a big mountain of a mistake to NOT re-check spelling before sending a note. P.S note to EVERYONE, DONT DO TYPING STRAIGHT AFTER WAKING UP. :-)

  118. Jeanne

    I want and NEED a copy of ALLL. My copy is dog-eared from so many rereadings that the spine is practically falling apart. BTW, can’t wait to read Cade’s story.

  119. Angelika

    Loved the interview! :)

  120. Laurie G

    Interesting! FBI agents always look so self contained, stern and unapproachable. I never thought of them as chameleons posing as different people in different scenarios. I thought of them as truth seekers and protectors.

    I’d love to read A LOT LIKE LOVE! I will check out your books!

  121. Hannah

    i fell in love with him haha,very nice :D

  122. Lei
