1. Tell me about yourself?
I consider myself a southern fried Yankee as I was born in Maine but have lived all of my adult life in the south (Florida, Georgia, Texas and South Carolina). We currrently call South Carolina home. I have been a horse lover all of my life. I have owned thirteen of then and trained and shown them. I currently own one beautiful Arabian geldign named Princeton. I am also happily married for thirty-one years and have two grown sons.
2. What is your new book, SLOW HAND about?
SLOW HAND is a contemporary Western romance set primarily in Montana. My heroine is a damsel in distress who loses her ID on her way to bury her dead father, and my hero is a total prince charming in a cowboy hat and a pick up truck. He’s also a workaholic laywer who has an ongoing battle with his older brother over the family ranch. The story is sexy and flirty and scorching hot. Link to book trailer:
3. What is it with cowboys? Why do we like them so much?
I think the appeal is very much centered in their old fashioned manners. Cowboys are extremely tough and stoic but they also usually have big hearts and gentlemanly ways. They know how to treat a lady like a lady. My hero Wade is very much this kind of cowboy.
4. Three important things to know about Wade?
He’s charming witty and has an incredible chin dimple!
5. Three important things about Nicole?
Nikki is a little bit lost in many ways. She desperately needs an anchor, someone she can count on like Wade. She’s fiercely independent because she’s had to be, and she’d been burned several times by cowboys.
6. And last what are you working on right now?
I have totally taken the plunge into contemporary romance with seven hot contemporary cowboy romances. Over the next eighteen months I have 4 novels coming from Sourcebooks (Slow Hand, Rough Rider, Straight Shooter and Silver Tongue) and 3 novellas from Kensington in a hot Las Vegas set series called Hotel Rodeo. Both publishers have left the option open to add more to these series if they do well.
