Anne is a gorgeous supermodel who writes romance in her spare time while jetting around Europe with a string of boytoys in tow.
Hmmm… no one is going to believe that. How about this?
Anne is an undercover agent for a super secret government agency, and when not saving the world for democracy and all the good people, she writes romance one-handed on a special mini computer designed just for her by a mad scientist.
Yeah, that sounds way better. So, ignore the people who tell you she’s just an ordinary person with an extraordinary imagination. They’re just jealous because she gets to play with James Bond and vacation in exotic locations.
When she’s not busy saving the world or writing the next great novel, she likes to kayak, hike, ride motorcycles, swim, skate, practice karate, play her guitar, sing, and of course, read.
See, I told you! AWESOME Bio!!! LOL. Now on to the interview…
Me: What was the first book you read that grabbed you? What genre? Who is the author?
A.K: Call of the Wild by Jack London. I don’t think it was the genre that hooked me so much as the fact that it opened up the world for me. It was the first book I read that took me to a place I’d never been and made me feel a part of it. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it showed me the magic of a well crafted story.
ME: Is there an author that you get fan-girl crazy over? Have you ever met him/her? Do you want to?
A.K: There’s a couple **blush**. Kelley Armstrong would be number one, and I did see her once at a book signing in Kelowna, but it was so busy that I never actually got to talk to her. Christine Feehan is a close second, and I would love to meet her too. I love her Ghostwalker series, her Dark series, heck, anything she writes. LOL.
- Favorite color? Blue
- Favorite season? – Spring
- Favorite Hero – movie or book? Indiana Jones (he’s just so much FUN!)
- Snack weakness (food or drink)? Pretzels – carbs and salt wrapped in one hard to resist crunchy delight.
- What’s your Astrological sign? Gemini
- Do you write sweet and cuddly or toe-curling steamy lovin’ stories? I write the toe-curling variety. I know some people don’t approve, but really, who falls in love and doesn’t want to get naked and have fun?
- Do you read sweet and cuddly or toe-curling steamy lovin’ stories? I read them all. I’m a book –a- holic. If I’m desperate I even read instructions!
ME: What’s on your desk when you write?
A.K: I don’t write at a desk. I use a laptop and hide somewhere away from phones and distractions. I have a corner in my garden that works really well. The problem with my desk is that I never seem to get down to the business of writing. I organize. I pay bills. I schedule promo. Anything but writing.
ME: Do you write to music or quiet? If you do write with music, can you share one song that’s significantly impacted this story?
A.K: LOL! Ever heard the song “The Cat Came Back.”? It got stuck in my head one day and this is the result. In my usual obsessive compulsive way I started to wonder, came back from where? Why did she come back? Why did she leave? Is she going to stay? I couldn’t let it go until I invented a whole story to explain that title.
ME: What’s your favorite line from your most recent release? Why?
A.K: Nothing is sexier than the sound of your lover working her way toward a climax.
I love that line because it explains so much about the hero and how he feels about Cat.
ME: What’s next? You don’t have to get specifics – but feel free to leave a tantalizing snippet or cryptic hook.
A.K: I just started working on a new project. The working title is Mercenaries: Private Skirmish. As with most of my books this will be a M/F. Here’s the opening paragraph <G> Just keep in mind this is rougher than sandpaper!
Deeglared at the guard as he nudged her back into place with the barrel of his plasma rifle. One lousy moment of inattention and here she was, waiting her turn on the auction block.
