First, if we were meeting at a coffee shop I’d be drinking a Latte 🙂 What would you order?
I’d order a mocha with an extra shot if I was under deadline, which I currently am!
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer a few questions. I LOVE books about football and your series about The Santa Fe Bobcats I’m really enjoying! 🙂
Thank you so much! Glad to hear it.
How many books do you anticipate in this series?
I just signed a deal for three more books, so at least five total! But I could see carrying on with the series as long as readers are having fun with them. That’s what matters most. If the readers want them, I can see moving forward with more.
How much research did you do for this?
Oh, hours of long, hard work staring at photos of hot men. Hard, hard work…
Were you a fan of football before you started writing this series?
I was, though not as much as my husband. He’s a college football fanatic, and we’re both Colts fans, though we do miss Peyton. So we now follow the Broncos, just for him.
What was the inspiration for writing a football series?
When I watch sports, I like the ones that are really down and dirty. I’m not a basketball fan because you touch a guy and it’s a foul. Come on, get in there, rough it up a bit, guys. Plus, hello sexy tight football pants…
I can only imagine how much fun that would be! Were you able to hang out with any hunky football players?
Nah. We live a stone’s throw from St. Louis so one day I’d love to find a way to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the Rams facilities and get the low down. But so far, nothing.
Thank you so much for hanging out.
8 Tantalizing Tidbits
1. A Must read book and why?
Where the Red Fern Grows…because I feel like you need to know what it feels like to have a book break your heart, and that one is a 100% given.
2. What is one place that I should see if I visit your hometown?
Me! haha Just kidding. I really adore City Museum. Very unique.
3. If you had an all expenses paid trip anywhere in the world for research, where would you go?
Australia. I’ve always wanted to go, and I wouldn’t hesitate to go for, uh, research…
4. What is your guilty pleasure?
I can’t believe I’m admitting this but… Cheez Whiz (from the can, naturally) and Wheat Thins. I know it’s horrible, but I love this combo. I’m gonna go hide now…
5. Organized or Free Floating?
Organized…mostly. I’m free floating on life and home details like meal planning (suck at it) and chore keep up (suck at that, too). But when it comes to work and schedules and knowing who is going where at what time, or bill paying…I’m a machine.
6. Binge watcher or weekly viewer?
Binge watcher! Hardcore. We gave up cable about 2.5 years ago and we don’t miss it. I wait until stuff hits Netflix and just go crazy. I can get through an entire season of a TV show in under three days.
7. What’s your favorite TV show and why?
Gilmore Girls, because of the dialogue. I adore the way those two girls can go back and forth almost without taking a breath. In my teenage years, I truly envied how quick Lorelei was with a comeback.
8. Would you rather see a movie in the theatre or at home on DVD and why?
DVD at home. I like being able to pause, rewind, pause again, and eat whatever snack I effing please while watching.
