Hi Kallypso. Great to have you over to visit with us readers. Please tell us about your book "Jesse's Hideout".
Tillie Hamilton is hiding out in the house famed outlaw Jesse James once hid out in. Greg Buchanan doesn't mind her exploiting Jesse, but draws the line at Tillie saying his beloved grandmother is haunting her B&B inn. Throw in the matchmaking spirits of both his grandmother and Jesse James, and we're off and running for a fun Contemporary Romance read. A full blurb and excerpt are available on my web site.
At what point did you know you wanted to publish a book?
In high school I knew I wanted to be a Romance writer. I spent decades writing and learning the craft, but didn't publish until after I turned 53. This will be my tenth book and ninth full-length novel.
If your home a place of order or chaos?
Chaos. I even write in the middle of the dining room (but with headphones), so I guess I thrive on chaos.
What genres do you write in and what inspired you to write in these genres?
My signature series, the Rescue Me Saga (Military Romance, BDSM Romance, some suspense and lots of emotional healing), and my standalone ROAR (unlike any other Romance I've ever seen--but I assure you there IS a happy ending!) are Adult Contemporary Romance. But I'm branching out into mainstream Contemporary Romance with Jesse's Hideout (Bluegrass Spirits #1; heat level--warm).
What is our favorite drink?
Anything rum and fruity, although I've quit eating sugar, so those aren't allowed anymore. I miss them!
What is your writing place like?
A messy dining-room table at the moment, although I do have a nice, quiet corner in an upstairs room with a glider chair and ottoman that I used to write in. But I do have a comfy executive office chair at the dining-room table to write in. Sometimes (like now) I prop my laptop on Kleenex boxes and walk in place while I type because writing is such a sedentary job.
What's next for you as an author?
I am working on book two in the Bluegrass Spirits series--KATE'S SECRET. That one will release in June (I hope). And then I am going to start a new Romantic Suspense, Military Romance series before working on a holiday novella for my Rescue Me Saga characters.
It's been a pleasure having you on.
Thanks for checking out my books! The first in the Rescue Me Saga is free in e-book. And the others are priced according to size. If you like BIG books, you'll want to check them out. And if you're into unique stories and series where one book isn't like the next and all are full of surprises, I think you might enjoy my series--both of them!
