Tell us about your journey to publication.
When we moved to Idaho, I spent the first four months in a basement and it wasn’t until that summer that I made any friends. So, after I had finished all the books on my shelf, I started writing a novel. It was awful, but I finished it, so I started querying agents. When I saw a Facebook post from Avon Romance, requesting submissions for Valentine’s Day novellas, I started writing The Trouble with Sexy. After I submitted it, I was on pins and needles, until ten days later I got an email offering me a publishing contract.
When you sit down to write a new story what comes first plot or characters or something else?
I write character descriptions first and then a short summery of the story.
What is your favorite indulgence (spa treatment, food, other)?
Oh, I love my white mochas….
What do you like best about your heroine in Make Me Crazy?
I love that Rand isn’t afraid to be herself, and damn anyone who doesn’t like her.
What’s coming up next for you?
I have two more releases this year, one for Loco, and one for Rock Canyon, and then next year I have four more books coming out.
About Make Me Crazy:
Miranda “Rand” Coleman has seen the way love can wreck a person and wants absolutely no part of it. When her granddaddy dies suddenly, he leaves a clause in his will that has her married in three months or she loses her inheritance. Unwilling to give up the Double C Ranch, she starts to set her eyes towards the eligible men in town, with little luck in finding a man she can stand for a minute let alone a year. Until she sets eyes on the new veterinarian and enlists the help of her womanizing best friend, Jake, to help.
Jake Hansen is a single guy who likes his women pretty and uncomplicated, with no plans to settle down anytime soon. When he decides to help Rand hook her man, he has no idea the effect watching Rand change would have on him. Especially when she starts letting her gorgeous brown hair down and showing off a body he didn’t even know she had. Before too long, Jake isn’t just lusting after his best friend, he’s feeling downright possessive. But when it comes down to the wire, will he get over his issues and step up to the alter…or lose the only woman he was ever meant to love?
Surprising himself, he reached out to brush a piece of hair from her forehead and said sincerely, “There are a ton of men in this town who would be lucky to have someone like you.”
He barely had time to dwell on the softness of her skin before, in true Rand form, she started making gagging noises. “Alright, if we’re done with the touchy feely moment, can I start this movie? Disembowelment I can handle, but this sappy chick talk is nauseating.”
“How is it you can be more of a guy than I am?” He asked, watching her get up and head towards the DVD player, silently cursing himself for his craziness. Whatever weird glitch was going on with him, he needed to nip it in the bud. For a brief moment, he was thinking Red wasn’t so nuts to consider marrying Rand. If she was willing to give her future husband some kind of financial help, as long as he stayed out of her business, why not him? He’d been wanting to buy Loco Tack and Feed for several months, had planned on applying for a loan, but with the money from Rand, he wouldn’t need to deal with the bank.
And it wouldn’t be like it was a real marriage.
“I don’t act like a guy.” Rand said, twisting around after putting the DVD in. “I’m just not one of those prissy girls you and Red seem to think are sooo wonderful.”
Red’s idea about fluffing up Rand’s femininity popped into Jake’s head. “What if you dressed up a bit? Put on some make up? Maybe you’d catch someone’s attention.”
She gave him a dubious look as she sat next to him. “Because I don’t believe in false advertising. Now, hush up. I want to watch this guy get sliced up.”
“Entertaining.” She contradicted.
