Welcome to It's Raining Books. Why do you write in your genre? What draws you to it?
,br> I chose romance for my genre because it has always been my favorite to read and I relate the most to it. I think the idea of happily ever after draws me in the most. Even though the basics of romance is very similar in every story it still has a completely different feel.
What research is required?
For my books I did a lot of research on the teams I used, football, and event planning. I pretty much researched all the important parts. I did most of it ahead of time, but there were times I would go back and check on it, or if I changed parts in my story I would go back and research.
Name one thing you learned from your hero/heroine.
I learned a lot about grief and how it can impact everyone differently
Do you have any odd or interesting writing quirks, habits or superstitions?
I feel like I have to get a chapter done all at one time other wise I’m worried that I won’t be able to remember what I wanted.
Are you a plotter or pantser?
I am for sure a plotter
Look to your right – what’s sitting there?
Anything new coming up from you? What?
I have blog and podcast that can be found on my website.
Do you have a question for our readers?
What do you look for in a book boyfriend/girlfriend?
Ella Chambers was a top event planner in New York, about to marry the man of her dreams. Daniel Collins was the quarterback for the Giants, on his way to winning his first ever Super Bowl. Life couldn’t get any better when they both said those three words to each other and planned to spend the rest of their lives together.
Until one perfect day came crashing down around them when they hear the three words no one wants to hear: You have cancer.
Now instead of dresses, flowers, and invitations, they’re dealing with doctors appointments, tests, and tears. Their love and strength will be tested and tortured, but they’ll fight with everything they’ve got to make it through.
Read an excerpt
Daniel stumbled into their bedroom late into the night after a few celebratory drinks with his and Ella’s families. They had been on a high from winning the Super Bowl and the only thing that would have made that night any better would have been getting to celebrate it with Ella. He was grateful she was at least able to see the win up close instead of through a TV screen.
He couldn’t shake the bad feeling he had as he tossed and turned all night. He knew any day now she would be gone, and he would have to go on without her. He wasn’t sure if that was even possible. She was his strength, and his rock. He finally fell asleep thinking about the sleeping beauty lying next to him.
Daniel awoke the next morning due to the bright light shining through the window. He groaned and rolled over, trying to block the sun out. When he realized he wasn’t going to fall back asleep, he sat up and rubbed the sleep from his eyes. He looked down to see it was 10:30 a.m. and that Ella was still sleeping, then did a double take and screamed. She was gray, and he knew in his gut that if he felt her, she would be cold.
Ella Collins, the love of his life, was dead and there was nothing he could do about it.
