Welcome to Tule! What is one thing you can tell our readers that no one else knows about you?
Hi! Thank you! The one thing that no one else knows about me is that I don’t really like coffee. Gasp! I like the effect that the shot of caffeine give me, but in order for me to enjoy it, my coffee can’t taste like coffee. So I doctor it up with heavy cream, and sugar free syrups.
This is the first cowboy book you’ve published. How did your approach to writing this novel differ from your others?
I’ve always loved cowboys. I think they’re so polite, in addition to being sexy and tough. I’ve been to Billy Bob’s Honky Tonk in Texas. That’s where I saw my first professional bull riding event and I was hooked. We took my son when he was little to see a PBR show in the Hartford Civic Center a few years ago. He was scared by all the pyrotechnics, but it was great to see a larger show. When I thought about the Three Sisters Ranch series, I knew that I would have to have a bull rider as a hero.
The relationship between Trent and his daughter, Alissa, is so sweet. Where did you find the inspiration for this?
I’ve found that the men who sowed their wild oats when they were young, really appreciate their daughters and tend to be more protective of them because they are afraid they’ll hook up with someone like they used to be.
What song would be in the soundtrack to Kelly and Trent’s love story?
“I Can Love You Like That” by John Michael Montgomery.
What are you currently reading?
I’m not a faithful reader so I usually have two or three books going on at one time. Currently, I’m reading Helen Hoang’s The Kiss Quotient, Shayne Silver’s Angel’s Roar, and J.D. Robb’s Seduction in Death.
To celebrate the release of The Cowboy’s Daughter, I’d like to
give away a bracelet like the one my hero is wearing on the
cover. Just comment below with “I can’t wait to read this!”
and we’ll pick a winner out at random at 7 p.m. ET on Friday, June 7.
