Settle in with your coffee or hot chocolate and learn about A Final Kiss.
What inspired you to write your first book?
My first published book is Jesse’s Brother. Before I wrote the book I was dating two men. One night I was out with one of the guys. Guy #2 called me when guy #1 went to the bathroom. They both knew about each other and I told guy #2 I was on a date at the moment. Then I started thinking about what a great story that would be and started writing the book.
And the guys? I ended up being friends with both of them for a while.
Do you have a specific writing style or approach to writing your books?
I’m a pantser. That means that I don’t plot my books in advance. I usually do some character outlines to get to know them and then I start writing. My book is done when the story naturally ends.
How did you come up with the title?
My newest release is A Final Kiss. This novel had a different name until I wrote the last scene. You see, I figure out titles while I’m writing. A word or phrase grabs usually grabs me and that is how I figure out the title. When I wrote the part where Kate’s stalker wants to give her a final kiss, I knew that would be the new name.
Here’s the blurb from A Final Kiss:
And he is waiting for his perfect moment to step into her life permanently. He almost had the perfect woman once before, but one thing stepped in his way then. He needs a new woman and Kate fits the bill perfectly. Nothing will come between him and Kate. Once Wade reveals his love to Kate, she’ll love him too. After all, they were meant to be together at all costs… even if it means taking away anyone else who might interfere.
Tony walked out of Kate’s life so many years ago, leaving a wrecked girl in his wake. One trip to the Phoenix airport shoves the all-woman version of Kate back into his life. He wants to get to know her again, but she isn’t playing easy with him this time. If given one more chance to make up for lost time, he would never leave again. Gone on his deployment, he decides to email her anyway. Through the emails she starts slowly warming up… enough to express her concern about a stalker. With the police officer’s lack of help, Tony heads to Phoenix instead of home upon his return to the states. Kate doesn’t trust herself around Tony, so he takes matters into his own hands. Will he be able to watch over Kate without her finding out and resist falling in love with her all over again? Will Tony be able to catch the stalker before Kate is harmed?
