What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write City Light, Starry Nights?

Small town romance is a genre I happen to love. Since I live in small town, I guess it’s appropriate. Most of my catalog falls under sports romance, so I wanted to start a new “clean and wholesome” pen name with small towns. My brain raced with the ideas for this story, but it also rejected the idea of “clean and wholesome.” What came out was my spiciest book to date.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

My favorite genre is definitely romance! I read a few nonfiction titles on occasion, but nothing beats a couple falling in love.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

My TBR pile is a mile long. I download books but never have enough spare time to read them. I do have an ARC sitting on my kindle from a friend I can’t wait to dive into.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

My favorite scene to write in this book was their meet cute. It’s fun and quirky and goes awry in the first chapter. Things only go downhill for them from there…or uphill. Depends on how you look at it!

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Quick answer is no quirky writing habits. Since I still work outside of writing, I have to steal time to get the words in. Unless you want to count coffee. I do like a steaming cup of joe sitting beside me while I write.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Years ago, I was at the bookstore looking for stocking stuffers for my children. On a bookmark, a shortened quote, “Never, never, never quit” from Winston Churchill stood out to me. Needless to say, each child received that bookmark, and I have repeatedly reminded them of his words. It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t live by that motto myself.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

These past few years have been weighed down with such heaviness, so I wanted to write a book that leaves people feeling good afterwards. Nothing beats a sweet happily ever after. That was my goal—leave a smile on the reader’s face.
