– Kaylee, what is your book Wed to the Bad Boy about?
– I always like to think that my books are about independent women and cynical men. It’s probably my trademark style. This book is no different.
I wrote both characters from the heart, Joanna is a strong, stubborn, smart woman who is running from her life in the mob. Greyson is the heir to a rival family. It’s a reverse Juliet/Romeo. It’s about how they find each other when they are forced together.
– How did you decide to write the story?
– A friend of mine who is an author had been writing similar stories for a few years, and she told me I needed to put my talent to use and write something similar. But I wanted to do it my way, Irish mob with a strong female lead. It was important to me.
– What was the biggest challenge during the write up process?
– Focusing. I do outlines like crazy and yet I always end up so far away from them I need wrangling back. I love my stories and I get swept up in them.
– Tell us something more about your main characters Greyson and Joanna? Are they close to someone from your real life?
– I never base my characters off of real life people, they are always fictional. That being said when I do write characters I dig down deep into myself and pull out characteristics of myself and thread them into my characters.
– How much time did you need to finish the story and to publish it?
– A month and a half, usually.
– Give us some insight about your most popular novels Rage and Wrath?
– When I sat down to write my first dark romances I wanted them to be Motorcycle Club romances. I knew a little bit about the life, I had grown up in relative poverty and my family had been involved with people who were in various clubs. I needed to tell a story about people like that. People who were like me, who were like what I grew up around. So that is where the idea came from. Though no one character is based off of a real life person, they do embody the general ethos of my home.
My experiences living in Braddock were something that I wanted the world to know, so I sat down to tell a tale about Braddock, and Pittsburgh. I love them both, dearly. I wanted it to be set there to show the world about my city.
– Who are you?
– I’m a kind, caring, loving person. I’m a hard worker. I’m a friend.
– What are your writing habits?
– I work a regular 9-5 schedule. My job is to be a writer, so I write or work on writing related tasks.
– Are you satisfied by the sales of your books?
– I am way more than satisfied. I’m amazed at the number of people who have read my works, who have contacted me, and who have shared with me their experiences.
– What are you doing to promote your book by the best possible way?
– I talk to people, I get to know them. I tell them about my works.
– When we will see your next novel and would you unveil something more about it?
– I’m working on Stolen: A Bad Boy Romance. It will be the final book in the Baltimore Bad Boy Series, and it will follow the life of Janson and a very special lady.
– What is the most charming thing in Charm City (Baltimore) for you?
– Johns Hopkins University. It’s where I fell in love with my husband almost 10 years ago. It’s a great place to be, and has amazing classes. Highly recommend to anyone looking on going to college.
– You are also working as editor. Did you ever received a book which is so interesting that you forgot your editorial job and just enjoyed the plot?
– I’m no longer an editor, sadly, I have become way too busy in the last year to edit for anyone, but I have loved almost every work I have read!
– If you may ask yourself one question in the interview what it will be? (Don’t forget to answer)
– What authors would you recommend we read? Vivian Lux , Lana Grayson, Lana Hart, and A. F. Crowell.
