Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am part of a writing duo. I write with my best friend, Patricia Mason. So far, we've written well over twenty books and have ideas for oh, about a million more. We write heart warming romance with a touch of heat. Curvy girls are always a feature of our books – and alpha males of course.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Our latest book is Just Between Lovers. It is the last in The Cowboy Connection series about three men who became best friends at a young age when they were all raised in the same orphanage. We always try to write a series of at least three books. We kept introducing secondary characters in our books that our readers always wanted their stories as well.
Kyle is a man who has been closed off from love – until he meets sassy nurse Amanda. Amanda brought with her a secret from Kyle's past. Can he overcome the hurt to allow her love to heal him? Read it and find out!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Just that I write with a partner! One would think that would be difficult to do, but really it's amazing. She finishes my thoughts and we are almost always on the same page when it come to our characters.
Oh, and I eat lots of chocolate when I'm writing. Is that unusual?
What authors, or books have influenced you?
My favorite authors include Diana Palmer and Linda Howard. Have you read McKenzie's Mountain? If not, go directly to amazon, do not pass go, do not collect $200, just buy it.
What are you working on now?
We're finishing the long awaited follow up to The Lady and the Law. After that we'll be doing another 3 book series about 3 best friends.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Book promotion is almost like magic – you're not really sure what works or why. Building our newsletter has helped tremendously and we've been blessed by word of mouth – people seem to like our books.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write, write and write some more! You can't sell a book if you don't have one complete! Write in the genre you love to read. Don't write sci-fi if you don't read it. Don't write romance if you don't read it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Write what you love? Corny, but true.
What are you reading now?
Who has time to read? That's the biggest downside to being an author, you don't have time to read as much as you want to.
What’s next for you as a writer?
New York Times Bestseller? That would be nice, but just to be able to continue to publish our books independently – and make a decent living is all we could wish for.
What is your favorite book of all time?
McKenzie's Mountain by Linda Howard
