Fox News Digital spoke by Zoom with the 29-year-old originally from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, ahead of her book’s release to talk about all things Emma and Finn, her main characters.

The TV personality shifted gears after her lead season of “The Bachelorette” later in 2019 — even writing a memoir and becoming a New York Times bestselling author in 2021. 

She said she’s always loved to read and write, but this process was very different from writing her memoir “God Bless This Mess.”

“It was very different. I would say ‘God Bless This Mess’ was hard because it was a very cathartic experience — it’s hard sharing your story and [wondering] how people will perceive you,” she said. 

“When it came to ‘Mistakes We Never Made,’ it was a lot more challenging [than knowing] the plot points in my own life [as] I experience them. But how do you create a totally fictitious world [with] characters? That takes a lot of organizing and plotting.”

“I have a pretty good gut instinct for what’s working and what’s not.”

The romance novel’s two main characters go from “frenemies to lovers” during a “wild-goose chase” to find a missing bride ahead of her wedding.

Brown won FOX’s “Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test” in 2023. 

She took some of her favorite things, she said, and put them in the novel — describing her book as “The Hangover” meets “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” meets “When Harry Met Sally.”

“I definitely drew inspiration from things I love about different things I’ve read or watched, or seen in some way, and was really inspired by those aspects of what I enjoy,” she said. 

Brown said the two-year writing process was a “brand-new thing” for her. 

“That’s what makes it a lot harder because I’m still trying to figure it out as I go, but I feel very confident in this first book because I had a lot of pros helping me along the way,” she said.

“Like anybody starting something new, you can get imposter syndrome, as in, ‘Why am I doing this?’ and ‘Why do I think I can do this?’ What I have learned about myself is I do have a pretty good gut instinct for what’s working and what’s not.”

“People ask me [if] Finn’s based on any guy in my life, and I’m like, ‘Finn is definitely part of the people in my life’ — but also Finn’s part of me.”
