Please welcome back fellow Casablanca author, Karen Kelley! Her second erotic paranormal romance, Where There’s a Will, is in stores this month.
Thanks so much to the Casablanca authors for having me back! I love writing for Sourcebooks and have never met such a fantastic group of people.
A little about me: I look innocent. No, it’s true. Apparently something strange happened as I got older because when I was growing up I got blamed for everything. Even when I told the truth, Mom never believed me. I’m thinking I didn’t look all that innocent! Go figure.
Now, after friends buy my books they start giving me strange looks. It’s like they’re expecting a punk rocker or something instead of me, a frumpy grandmother. I did actually tell my hairdresser to go wild and put in blond streaks. My hair did not cooperate and I ended up with lovely golden highlights.
I really tried to fit the mold of erotic romance author and figured I could pull it off better if I lost weight. I dropped 100 pounds. Yeah, I can hear you cheering and saying way to go, Karen! I found where some of it dropped. I asked my daughter what the roll of fat was around my waist and she said it was a muffin top. I asked how I could get rid of it and she told me I had to exercise. I asked her if there was another way. She said no.
I don’t think I’ll ever fit into a mold, but I’m having great fun doing exactly what I want to do. I didn’t always do that. I tried to be what everyone wanted me to be and never believed I would amount to much. My heroine in Where There’s A Will is the same way. Haley lives her day to day dreary life until she’s stood up by a coworker. That night she cries herself to sleep and prays for a miracle. The next morning a handsome nephilim (half angel/half man) rings her doorbell and promises to give her the miracle she’s been waiting for. Ryder rings more than her doorbell.
If you’ve ever felt like you were on the outside looking in or someone made you feel inferior, then you might enjoy Where There’s A Will. It’s a story about discovery and love and….well, I don’t want to give it all away. (And it’s not at all innocent!)
Be yourself, be happy!
