What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write A Season for Spies?
Years ago, a scene for a book popped into my head and I could not get it out. The scene did not actually end up in A Season for Spies, it’s in Spy Season, the free prequel, but it’s the basis of Anthony and Evie’s relationship.
One night in France, she saved his life by having sex with him. I won’t spoil it by telling you how that saved his life, but I promise, it did! And then she disappears into the night and he has to hunt her down. Of course, since they met in a brothel, he has no idea that she’s his commander’s niece!
If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of A Season for Spies, what would they be?
Evie: I’m Just A Girl by No Doubt and for Anthony I Walk the Line by Johnny Cash
What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?
I’m such a mood reader, I’m not sure I can say I have a favorite genre! I started off as a heavy sci-fi / Fantasy reader, which eventually led me to romance. Now I do read a lot of romance, but I also read a lot of Urban Fantasy and Cozy Mystery! Within Romance I read so many different subgenres it’s impossible to choose just one.
What books are on your TBR pile right now?
You want a list of all 600? LOL. Sarah MacClean’s Heartbreaker is at the top at the moment.
What scene in your book was your favorite to write?
Oh man. This is a hard one. I loved a lot of scenes in this book. It’s a toss up between when the characters realize they’re in love, and when Anthony goes toe to toe with Evie’s family to make sure she gets to make her own decisions.
Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)
I need quiet. I can’t do music or anything like that, which I know a lot of people find odd. I can do like, a low hum of noise if I’m out in public or someone is doing yardwork outside, but definitely no music.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
Remember to be kind.
If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?
The way it made them feel, which is hopefully happy and energized! I’m less concerned with them remembering specific moments or scenes, and more about them remembering the experience of what they felt as they were reading.
