Welcome #Author Patti Sherry-Crews! Author from Come Love A Cowboy



Hello Patti Sherry-Crews! One of the authors from come Love A Cowboy.

1) So many writers say they began their career with stories about their ancestors or they wrote just for their own enjoyment when they first started out. How about you? When did you begin to look at writing as a profession rather than a hobby?

I started writing when I was 50 as a birthday present to myself. Even though I told myself for a long time I was writing an important piece of literature, I had in fact written a thinly veiled memoir! It’s titled Smoke Damage (my father was a fireman). Tell your own story first, that’s what I often hear. But the words flowed forth, and I realized I’d found my passion late in life.
My next book, Patrick III, I worked on and off for five years. I wasn’t really sure what direction I wanted to go in, and I hadn’t identified myself as a romance writer yet. Once I did figure that out, it all came into focus and I’ve been writing seriously ever since that self-discovery.
That second book started with a personal experience. A few generations of women in my family took a trip to Newfoundland to discover our roots. While there we found an entry telling us how our family came to Newfoundland, “Patrick Nugent, 1800, escaped a prison ship bound from Ireland.” No further details.

Though my second book is not autobiographical, I did like the idea of generations of women traveling together, all on their own quest, with family dynamics and family secrets as the backdrop. I also brought into the story their discovery of an ancestor who placed them there because he escaped a prison ship.
One reason I couldn’t manage to finish the book was because I couldn’t find how my Patrick Nugent escaped (or anyone! I couldn’t find any accounts of someone escaping from a prison ship), or what he did to get himself deported. Finally I made something up and finished the book.

Within days of writing “the end,” I found by pure chance you could search Irish prison records. There I found within seconds the thing that had eluded me for five years. “Patrick Nugent. Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin, July 1800, Robbery. Sentence: deportation to New South Wales.” Which doesn’t answer how he escaped….

2) What genre do you prefer to write and why?

Romance. I write both historic and contemporary, and I’ve even been known to write erotic romances under the pen name, Cherie Grinnell.
Why romance? Because when I write I lose myself in the story. Of course I’d rather be lost in a romance than a dystopian world or true crime novel. I also tend to make a romance out of any novel I’m reading. I’m always rooting for the couple to “work things out.” Even in books where the characters are despicable like Gone Girl. In any fiction I read I really perk up when the handsome man comes into it. To be honest, I’m like that in life too! I’m 56 and happily married, but I’m always scanning the crowd for the good-looking guys.

3) What is your genre of choice to read and what is your favorite book of all-time?

I read all kinds of books, mainly fiction. I love chicklit romance, where the characters are smart and funny. I binge read certain authors like Marian Keyes, Jojo Moyes, and Cecelia Ahern.
Like you, Keta, one of my favorite books is To Kill a Mockingbird. Since you spoke so well on that one, I’m going to go with Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin. I read it multiple times and I’ve seen every movie version. P&P has spawned so many other books, because it’s a darn good story even centuries later. I want to tip my hat to Jane who had to write without modern conveniences like a computer or even proper lighting. She didn’t have access to advice on how to write a novel like we do today. When people give me grief about writing romance, I say “Hello, Jane Austin!” I’m in awe of all those writers from past centuries who wanted to tell their stories so badly, they maybe even had to write by candle light, a quill and a pot of ink. And they probably had chilblains (whatever that is), or rickets, or consumption. I only have to deal with a computer that crashes occasionally.

James Joyce wrote Ulysses (which I also read, cover to cover with the aid of a support group) at a kitchen table with his family milling about. And he was almost blind with chronic eye inflammation!

4) If you won a cruise to any place in the world, where would you go and why?

I hope I don’t win! I hate cruises. I’ve been on two and they were both disasters. The first one the weather was so bad we couldn’t make it into most ports. The second one a bride on her honeymoon jumped overbroad. Nobody was allowed off the cruise while the police ran their investigation. Then when we did get off the ship, a man in my group dropped dead of a heart attack because we were racing around in the heat during our shorten shore excursion.
 Plus, I like to walk and explore. I get stir-crazy on ships.
I prefer renting houses, staying put in one place, and immersing myself.

However, I would love to rent one of those cute little houseboats like they have in Amsterdam or England and travel via canals.
But, where in the world would I go? So many places! I’m going to put Turkey at the top of my list. It looks beautiful and the food looks great. My dream vacation is to stay in one of those cave-hotels they have there.

5) If you could be anything in life (other than a writer) what would it be?

Tough one. I always had trouble deciding what I wanted to be when I grow up. I love to cook and travel but if I had do either for a living, I think I would grow to hate both those activities. If I had the talent, I would like to be an actress, which when you think about it, has some similarities to writing: losing yourself in a story, living in someone else’s head, and moving on to something new all the time.

6) We'd love to hear about your story in COME LOVE A COWBOY. Do your hero and heroine have obstacles to overcome before they find their happily-ever-after? What are those and how did they do at conquering them?

When Angel Harper and Boone Donovan meet as strangers in a chance encounter, their chemistry is combustible. Angel figures she’ll never see him again, and indulges in a little flirting. When he shows up in her life, she doesn’t know what to do about him—especially when he shows up in a fashion, which causes her humiliation.

The obstacle is Angel’s resistance to romance. The two times she’s given into passion, she paid a price; and the second time she lost at love it affected her son as well, so she’s cautious. She’s not sure she can trust Boone, but ultimately it’s about learning to trust her own instincts.

Plus the couple have some real time constraints: Angel is a single mom trying to run a small guest ranch, and Boone is a firefighter with a side business leading trail rides off his family’s ranch.
I dated—and later married—a single dad. I know first hand the complications that come with that arrangement. I drew on that experience when writing Desert Heat.

How do they end up conquering their obstacles? Without giving too much away, sometimes almost losing something is what it takes.

#Author Hebby Roman from COME LOVE A COWBOY is here!


Welcome Hebby Romance – One of the authors in COME LOVE A COWBOY.

I first wrote because I love reading so much. I wrote a book at the age of 10--it was 100 pages long and I did research on it and set it in Montana. It was about my favorite thing then, horses, which I still love. I had a young girl catch and tame a wild mustang. When I got much older, I took up writing again because I wanted to write about what I love to read, romance books. And in the beginning, I particularly loved historical romance, but I've branched out now. So, you could say my love of reading is what inspired me to write. Even now, I seldom go to bed before reading first, it's my own special treat at the end of the day.

I write romance, both contemporary and historical. I believe I enjoy writing romance because of the happy endings. We seldom have happy endings in real life, so the draw of knowing a book will end on a happy note is especially sweet.

My genre of choice to read is two-fold. Of course, I read romance. But because I started out writing historical romance, I also read historical fiction, along with reference books on history. I decided a few years back to write a medieval romance, "The Princess and the Templar," and as a result, I had to do a lot of research on the Middle Ages. Now, I'm kind of hooked and like to read historical fiction accounts of that time period.

I used to say my favorite book of all time was "Gone With the Wind." However, upon yet another reading, my favorite book of all time, which is supposedly a historical fiction book but the romance in it is soooo awesome, that I cry and cry every time I read it. The book is "Here Be Dragons," by Sharon Kay Penman about Llewellyn the Great, the last Welch prince and the woman, Joanna, who he married, who was a bastard child of John (of Magna Carta fame). It is the most sweet and touching romance I've ever read.

If I won a cruise, I would definitely want it to be a Mediterranean cruise. Again, because of all the history at the ports of call in Italy and the coast of France and Greece. I believe it would be a fascinating place to visit. All of civilized life in the West got its start around the Mediterranean.

I would like to teach again, if I didn't have the discipline problems. I enjoyed the few years that I taught, especially when I worked one-on-one with the students and could see the light bulb go off in their heads when they finally got a concept. I taught Algebra, most students' least favorite subject. But it was still very rewarding when I could help the students with their work.

My story in "Come Love A Cowboy" is a called, "Border Affair," and it's a sequel to a traditionally published print book that Kensington published in 2000, called "Border Heat." I was honored back then when "Border Heat," was selected for the LA Times Book Festival, something that rarely happened for romance books in those days. "Border Affair" shows the daughter of the couple from "Border Heat," and her infatuation with her parents' ranching partner, who is also a petroleum geologist and considerably older than her. The heroine in "Border Affair," has to grow into a mature woman and come to grips with her childhood crush for the hero. Then they have to see if their relationship is just a fleeting affair or if it has real staying power, so yes, they definitely have obstacles to overcome.

Welcome #Author Andrea Downing - Come Love A Cowboy Anthology


Please help me welcome Andrea Downing to Keta's Keep today. She's here to tell us a little about her writing and, of course, to brag a little about COME LOVE A COWBOY.

1) So many writers say they began their career with stories about their ancestors or they wrote just for their own enjoyment when they first started out. How about you? When did you begin to look at writing as a profession rather than a hobby?
To be perfectly honest, I’m not really sure.  I know I was writing ‘novels’ in those mottled black and white school composition books when I was about nine, but I was also acting in every school play I could get into, as well as dress designing. I remember going into my local library, being overcome with the beauty of it—high shelves of carved wood and all those cloth-bound books—and believing I would read every volume there. So I don’t think I ever viewed writing as a ‘hobby’—it was always something important in my life, to both be creative and create stories other people would want to read the way I wanted to read those books.

2) What genre do you prefer to write and why?
I prefer western historical romance slightly over contemporary—for me, it’s more of an escape. In contemporary novels, you may still employ the problems of today everyone faces—jobs, relationships, immigration, perhaps even drugs or terrorism. In historical novels you’re dealt a whole different set of parameters to work within; language is different, the way relationships worked and/or came to be are very different, and so on. I like that.

3) What is your genre of choice to read and what is your favorite book of all-time?
OHHHHH, that is such a tough question as to favorite book, Keta!! My favorite genre is, naturally, western romance, though I’ll own up to reading mostly literary fiction.  However, that includes literary western writers like Ivan Doig and Kent Haruf whose books I just sink into completely. So, let me see, my favorite romance has to be anything by Maggie Osborne who I consider to be the doyenne of western historical romance. All time favorite book is a toss-up between Doig’s The Whistling Season and John Irving’s A Prayer for Owen Meany, which I consider about as perfect a lesson in novel writing as you can get.
    
4) If you won a cruise to any place in the world, where would you go and why?
The thought of an ocean cruise makes my blood go cold—too many people. But I’d take a riverboat cruise down the Yangtze River in China—I’ve never been to Asia other than part of Russia and it would be a wonderful learning experience.

5) If you could be anything in life (other than a writer) what would it be?
An actress.  I did a summer course at the American Academy of Dramatic Art and was headed to RADA in London but stuff happens…

6) We'd love to hear about your story in COME LOVE A COWBOY. Do your hero and heroine have obstacles to overcome before they find their happily-ever-after? What are those and how did they do at conquering them?

Keta, as you know, romance must have conflict so, of course, there are obstacles to the couple’s happiness in Bad Boy, Big Heart! She’s from New York and headed to do an M.A.; he’s a Wyoming cowboy and high school drop out.  However, in addition, she has domineering parents who want her back in N.Y., and he has a very ill father who’s dependent on him and his earnings. I don’t think I should be giving away how they do at conquering these problems, but let’s just say he’s no dummy and she’s no wimp.
    
Thanks so much for having me here today. I’ve really enjoyed it.
