M.K. Ducote grew up in the small town of Davie, Florida. Eager to see more of the world, M.K. studied abroad in Melbourne, Tokyo and Paris as an undergraduate and interned with Sotheby's Auction house in New York and Melbourne. M.K. graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA from the University of Florida (B.S. in Business Finance, B.A. in Classics and Minor in Art History) and gave the commencement speech for her graduating class. The eternal scholar, M.K. went on to law school and studied international law and human rights in Cape Town and Lima, graduating with a J.D. from the University of Florida and an LL.M. from the University of Miami.
Having seen the world, M.K. settled down to practice law and met her husband, Chapman Ducote, a professional racecar driver and entrepreneur with over 14 career podiums under his belt. Tossed into the exciting and scandalous world of motorsports, M.K. was enthralled by the behind-the-scenes drama. M.K. quickly turned to her life-long passion and set pen to paper, plucking from real life the colorful settings and scenes of her fiction series, Naked Paddock.
M.K. was featured on five episodes of Kourtney & Kim (Kardashian) Take Miami, which aired in early 2013, as well as various other reality television shows. She is currently a brand ambassador for Essentia water, as well as Levinson's Jewelers located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. In her free time, M.K. enjoys playing the cello, cycling in Aspen, horseback riding, free diving in the Bahamas, racing karts and reading, but her true passion is writing. Each year, M.K. Ducote embraces her passion for travel and writing, accompanying her husband to racing circuits all over the world and gathering inspiration for her high-octane novels. When not on the road, the couple calls home to Miami Beach, Florida.
Inspired by real events and the first novel of a trilogy series, Naked Paddock transports its readers on a wild journey through the adrenaline-fueled world of professional motorsports—a world of money, sex, ego and ruthless competition.
At its heart, Naked Paddock can be pared down to one man. Attractive, daring and privileged, Coleton Loren is a professional racecar driver unaccustomed to setbacks who finds himself injured in the off-season. Charmed by his beautiful, yet bookish doctor, Camilla, he sweeps her into a world of gossip and glamour that she never knew or dreamed of, as he fights to reclaim the top step of the podium.
