Describe yourself in five words.
Persistent. Passionate. Quirky. Forgetful. Shy.
What is the best piece of advice have you ever received in your writing career?
Ooh, that’s hard. Probably not to compare myself to others. It’s difficult not to, especially when there are so many amazing announcements made on Twitter each day about agents and book deals and what not, but focusing on your craft is what’s most important. Do that, and everything else will fall into place.
JUST ONE REASON is part of Entangled Lovestruck’s continuity series titled What Happens in Vegas. How was writing this book different than your single titles?
Working with a group of authors (and their editors) to write a series that features multiple stories that all take place in the same Vegas hotel on the same weekend was actually a lot less tricky than I expected it to be. Writing is typically a very lonely job, but reaching out to these other authors to discuss small details of their book so everything aligns throughout the series made the process much more enjoyable. Plus, it gave me an excuse to talk to someone other than my Pandora radio station while I was writing!
What is an unknown fact or fun trivia about JUST ONE REASON?
Last year my best friend and I went to Las Vegas for the Vegas Valley Book Festival. While we were at the beer garden on Freemont Street (the same one mentioned in the story), we met the real live Declan! Tall, handsome, Irish… Later when I was contracted to write for this series, I knew he had to have the lead.
E-Books or Traditional Paper Books?
Because I spend most of my time staring at a computer screen, it’s nice to hold a paper book at the end of the day.
What are you working on now?
I have a three-book antihero series coming out with Entangled Brazen. The first book, A MOMENT OF WEAKNESS, is about an aspiring teacher who takes a job as a nanny for a dangerously sexy single father, releases this October! The other two will follow in 2016.
JUST ONE REASON
He's more than she bargained for...
As far as Declan Waterford is concerned, women are off limits-at least until he can earn enough money for his brother's surgery. The dueling piano gig at Vegas's Masquerade hotel barely pays enough...but if Declan can convince his boss to promote him, he'll be set. And the Senior VP of the hotel's gorgeous daughter might just be the "in" Declan needs.
Between drowning in mistakes at her editorial internship and fighting off her father's demands that she relocate to Vegas and join his hotel empire, Melody Sumner doesn't have time for love-or one-night stands with sexy Irish piano players-no matter how appetizing Declan is. But even though she knows he's only interested in her for one reason, the intense chemistry between them has her thinking dangerous thoughts...
