Todays special guest is...

Thanks so much for coming by Lorelie, glad to have you.

LC: Thanks for having me. 

Prepared to go through the wringer lol...

LC Sure fire way.

PB: Why did you pick or rather why did the genre pick you that you write in? 
LC: I write romantic suspense and that’s what I enjoy reading most of the time, but also enjoy authors such as Harlan Coban and Andrew Gross.

2. How long does it usually take you to write your books? 

LC: About 6-8 months roughly, with lots of time for research, revisions, edits and plotting.

PB: Where do you get your inspiration? 

LC: A lot of times from day dreaming.

PB: Name at least two things about writing that you love/hate (can be one of each) 
LC: I love getting edits back from the publisher. It’s another ‘take’ on my story. And I hate when my characters take over and keep changing the plot.

PB:  You're faced with someone whose looking to break into the industry - what would you tell them?  Be patient, it takes time to get your name out there and to get followers.

PB: Do you have any writing snacks to feed your ‘muse’? 
LC: Yes, who doesn’t love chocolate? I love the mini Milky Way bars.
PB: Now there's a snack I can relate to. Be great to have a large bowl next to my desk all the time lol.

PB:  I hear you have two nooks out. Can you tell me what they’re about? 

LC: DEADLY DECEPTION and DEADLY REVENGE are the first two in the ‘Deadly’ series. They are romantic suspense about human trafficking. I became interested in human trafficking when I read an article in the local newspaper explaining that the local task force (didn’t know we had one) had performed a successful sting operation. It was happening in my town or my own back yard so-to-speak and I never knew. It really hit close to home. Since then I have become an advocate to top human trafficking so all the books of this series carries a message. There is also lots of sexual tension between the hero and heroine and real sex that keeps you turning the pages to the happy ever after ending.

PB: What’s your favorite book of all time?
LC: Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss. I know it’s old but it is still the best. I’ve read it over and over again.

PB: What’s a good book you’ve read recently?
LC: HUSH by Cherry Adair.

PB: What’s next on your writing agenda?
LC: I’m currently working on Deadly Deliverance, the 3rd in the series and from an investigator’s pov.  So far it is exciting.

PB: Where can your followers find you? 

LC:My website: or my blog: or email me at

Love the idea of bringing human trafficking to the public attention! And in a romance is even better!
