Q&A with the Author

Q: Can you tell me a bit about yourself and how became an author?

A: With a background in business and an occupation in corporate America, reading became an escape from everyday stresses. I found that there were elements of stories that would draw me in, and elements that turned me off. I was annoyed with the over-played trope of the weak, poor girl who needed saving. That’s when I decided to create my own story.

Q: What is your writing process like?

A:  I write during the evenings and weekends; the weekends being my favorite. I always begin by reading the first chapter to ground myself in the story. There’s nothing I love more than sipping a fresh cup of coffee on weekend mornings while the words pour out in a jumbled mess. Thank goodness for editing.

Q: What do you like to do when you are not writing?

A: I enjoy working out, wine, and traveling

Q: How do you celebrate when you are finished writing a book?

A: In all honestly, I was so shocked I finished I laughed out loud – but then the tedious work of editing, finding a designer to create the cover, and pre-release promotions kept me too busy to remember I should celebrate. Will work on that next time!

Q: How do you celebrate when your books are released?

A: This was my first release, and I happened to be out of town. I’m hoping for a proper celebration with the next.

Q: Can you tell me how the book/series came about?

A: I became annoyed with the over-played poor girl needs a rich man to save her trope. I wanted a book that could hold my attention. A book that included a financially independent heroine who is complex and far from perfect, but needs to figure out how to save herself.

Q: Are any of your characters similar to real-life friends or family?

A: Yes, the primary characters all have components of people I know.

Q: What was the most challenging part of writing this book?

A: Deleting thousands of words because the scenes just didn’t work.

Q: What part of writing this book was the most fun for you?

A: The process of writing. I love creating a world and characters I fall in love with.

Q: What Authors or other Books have inspired you to write this book?

A: There are several talented authors who released books I’ve been able to lose myself to. Kennedy Ryan is next level gifted with world and character development. Sylvia Day, Vi Keelan, and recently Ali Hazelwood create stories I can’t put down.

Q: What is your favorite passage from this book?

A: My lungs seize when the eyes I’ve been seeing in my dreams stare down at me. The love and intensity I remember so fondly is amplified. I try to talk, but instead of words, another soft moan leaves my lips.

 

Am I in heaven? Did I die? I feel myself brought closer to the warm, hard chest I’m cradled against. A low whisper near my ear says, “I’ve got you, baby.” I vaguely register a tinge of electricity in my belly, even as a dark void threatens to smother me.

Q: If you could meet any of your characters, who would it be and what would you say to them?

A: Richard – I would kick him in the balls.
