I have read many of Viv’s books over the last couple of years and love them all. She was able to travel with her family for most of 2011 and she is currently enjoying Eucador. She has a sexy cowboy series out and book 2 releases on 1/10/12. She also wanted me to let you know that her website was hacked recently and they are working to get it restored I hope you enjoy her visit.
I started writing seriously about three years ago, and at the time I was also homeschooling my two children. The family rule had always been they could interrupt me at the computer if they needed help on school tasks—they were old enough to be fairly independent learners, and once I’d organized them for the day I supposedly had time to work on my own projects.
Suddenly I was in the situation of being immersed in a work in progress—an emotional exchange between the hero and heroine, or worse yet, a sensual one—to be interrupted with a “Mooooooooom. I can’t figure out how to…what are you writing?”
I learned very quickly how to use the dim screen option, especially since my ‘office’ was a little table just off the kitchen. As the family worked through the day’s tasks, my kids were constantly around, and I had to learn when to ignore them and when to save a scene for a little more private time writing. Five a.m. seemed to be just about perfect, until that one morning I realized my daughter was standing behind me, staring groggily at the keyboard. Fortunately she was asleep enough to have no interest in reading over my shoulder!
My reality as a writer? I have kids, and they know I write kissing books—and as they’ve grown older it’s now the source of some teasing, some rolled eyes (on my 18 yo son’s part), but mostly it’s something they don’t even blink at. As my daughter told me, “You and daddy are still in love. Of course you believe in happily-ever-after.”
If you’d like to try a taste of the Six Pack Ranch, I have an ebook copy of winner’s choice—either book one in the series, Rocky Mountain Heat, or an ARC of book 3 that will be releasing March 13, Rocky Mountain Desire. Leave a comment about romance.
~~**~~Rocky Mountain Haven – Six Pack Ranch, Book 2 It’s the quiet ones that take you by surprise.
Beth Danube’s emotionally abusive husband is dead and buried. So is her heart. It’s no big deal, she has all she wants: her three little boys and a fresh start in a small Alberta town. What she doesn’t want is another man in her life—not now, maybe not ever.
After ten years of unsatisfactory, missionary-position sex, she never expected her libido to reawaken. One look at sex-in-boots Daniel Coleman in a Calgary bar, though, blows the dust off her sexuality.
Sensing an edge of desperation, even fear, beneath Beth’s come-on, Daniel finds himself giving in to the powerful urge to let his normally subdued desires run wild. The lady wants non-judgemental, non-vanilla sex? She’s got it—in and out of the bedroom.
At first, friends with blazing-hot benefits is more then enough. Then she realizes Daniel is burning away the protective fortress around her heart…and the guilty secret she dare not reveal.
Warning: One woman determined to retake control of her life, a man with the single-minded purpose of offering her—and her body—everything she needs. Inappropriate behaviour in barns, change rooms, and oh-my-gawd phone sex with a cowboy.
