Interview with Katie O’Sullivan

Welcome Katie. I’m so glad to have you here. Please tell us about your book, My Kind of Crazy.

Kendall Roarke is betting everything on making her Harwichport Bed & Breakfast into the premier wedding destination on Cape Cod, despite her recent messy divorce.
Jonathan Reynolds moved back to the Cape to take over his uncle’s business and start fresh after his own marriage ended. He’s not looking for anything complicated – until he meets Kendall, with her big plans and wild mop of curls.
Throw an unruly foster puppy and an uptight new neighbor into the mix and things get a little crazy. Now Kendall has to decide if it’s the kind of crazy that she can live with… for the rest of her life.

Please tell us something about yourself.

Katie O’Sullivan lives with her family and big dogs near the ocean on Cape Cod, drinking way too much coffee and inventing new excuses not to dust. Living next to the Atlantic influences everything she writes. A recovering English major, she earned her degree at Colgate University and now writes romance for young adults and the young at heart. Her editing column, “The Write Way,” appears in the Literary Women section of CapeWomenOnline magazine.

Would you share an Excerpt from the book

“Excuse me?”
She turned to find the stranger from the corner table on the sidewalk next to her. He was much taller than she’d guessed, maybe six feet or a little more, with long legs and wide shoulders. “You left these on the counter.” He held out her sunglasses. “I thought you might need them.”
She looked from the glasses up into his smiling face, and felt her knees go a bit weak. Up close, his eyes were the most brilliant shade of green Kendall had ever seen. Her stomach tightened into a knot and the air around her seemed to disappear, making it hard to breathe. Laugh lines radiated from his eyes and the small creases of dimples in his cheeks as he smiled.
Kendall exhaled, and reminded herself that it didn’t matter how breathtakingly cute he was. The guy was having an affair with a married woman. “Umm, thanks, I guess.” Her voice sounded as awkward as she felt. She reached to take her glasses, and realized that both hands were full with the coffee cup and bakery box. She juggled to balance the large box on top of the cup’s plastic lid to free up a hand.
“Here, let me help.” He stepped in even closer. Instead of taking either the box or the cup out of her hands, he slipped the sunglasses on her head, sliding them through her long curls and into place over her ears. This close, the clean scents of soap and citrusy shampoo wafted from his still-damp hair. Major sparks tingled throughout her entire body, his hands lingering for a moment in her hair before he seemed to catch himself and take a step back. “My name’s Jon, by the way. And you are?”

Thanks for sharing with us. I’ve already downloaded me a copy of My Kind of Crazy and can’t wait to read it.

Interview with KyAnn Waters

I’d like to welcome and thank KyAnn Waters for allowing me to interview her.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.

I’m a wife to my real life hero, a mother to two amazing boys, an author of romance (mostly erotic) and a friend to most. Yeah, we all have a bitchy side too and I’m no exception. But if you feed me sugar it tames my inner bit…witch.

Q: When and why did you begin writing?

I think like most writers, I’ve always written. But I didn’t attempt publication until 2006.

Q: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Nope. Just a story that hopefully entertains. I want you to sympathize and empathize with all three characters. Gretchen is a good person until she is faced with a life she fears. Landon made mistakes in his youth but has such high hopes for the future and Crystal finds herself falling in love with a man who may never be hers. In the end I think readers will agree, the story ends as it should.

Q: What authors have most influenced you? Why?

I honestly don’t have an answer for this. I read a lot and that’s how I discovered what I didn’t want to write. As the years have gone on, I’ve found I like a bit of emotional damage to my heroes. I like heroines who know what they want and go after it, but still have a vulnerable side. In the beginning I liked to write family drama with children, love and loss. Now I like a lot of sex, edgy virile heroes and passionate heroines.

Q: What are you reading now?

Delilah Devlin. But I’ll probably finish it tonight. I want to pick up a highlander next.

Q: What is your favorite punctuation mark and why?

An !…! Because I want them and my editors won’t let me have them!

Q: Tell us about your new release.

Betrayed Vows is a story I wrote several years ago. The story isn’t a typical romance. In the beginning you meet Gretchen. At first you might think she is the heroine, but she actually becomes the antagonist. As the reader, there are no mysteries for you. You know every devious thing Gretchen is plotting. Hopefully you’ll be cheering for our hero, Landon as he tries to avoid being snared in her machinations.

Betrayed Vows
Everything in Gretchen Booker’s life was as she wanted it. A husband on her terms. Companionship without physical contact. That’s why she married a lifer. Who would’ve thought it would all come to an end after only ten years?

Life on the outside is not as Landon Booker expected. But how can he make a future for himself beyond prison walls when the woman who is supposed to love him wants to see him sent back to the penitentiary.

Crystal Evans isn’t a home wrecker. Landon needs a friend…someone who can help protect him from his conspiring wife. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan.
Yet vows betrayed leave all three with something to lose—Crystal her heart, Landon his freedom, and Gretchen the life she had before.

Excerpt

Gretchen slipped around the side of Crystal’s house. Under the canopy of wisteria she took the small pills from her pocket and rolled them around in her palm. She had no idea what effect they’d have on Landon. What if he had a bad reaction? Calvin assured her they were a mellow high designed to heighten pleasure. If Landon became arduous would she be able to follow through? If it meant keeping him from Crystal, absolutely. If the drug was as potent as Calvin led her to believe, Landon wouldn’t notice if she wasn’t engrossed in his affection.
Glancing around, she made sure she was still alone. Then she opened the capsules, spilling the drug powder into a cup of soda. She swirled the contents and sniffed the drink. She detected no odor and there wasn’t any discernible signs floating on top. She took a deep breath of steely determination. Now or never, she thought as she went in search of Landon.

Garden With No Green Thumbs

Happy May 24th Weekend!

In Canada, May 24 weekend usually means time to plant the garden. We had such a harsh winter this year that several bushes in my front garden died. Since I have to replace so may bushes I decided to redo the whole garden.

I went to the book store and got several books on gardening. I spent hours pondering through the books, plotting and planning the best design for my house with my endless cup of coffee. In my opinion this is the best part of gardening.

The garden is half in shade and half in full sun so I had to design it with plants that will thrive in the shade and in the sun. This is quite an undertaking for a person with two non-green thumbs.

Now that I have the design figured out, I have to dig out all the dead shrubs that have lived with me for 12 years. When I told my neighbor about my undertaking he just smiled and offered me his axe to cut the roots.

So now I’m off outside with a shovel in one hand and an axe in the other. Wish me luck!

How are you spending your holiday Monday?
