CLAUDIA CONNOR: I NEVER CONSIDERED MYSELF A WRITER

Claudia Connor’s debut novel Worth The Fall gained huge positive criticism by readers. The book was released in September and received a well deserved praise. Currently, the first part of The McKinney Brothers series is averaging 4.7 stars rating in Amazon (430+ reviews) and 4.3 stars at Goodreads (780 reviews). Apart from the writing Claudia is a professional children educator. For me, as a father of 2-year-old daughter, it was very interesting to hear some useful advices about communicating with kids.

– Claudia, your last book Worth the Fall is very highly rated in Amazon and Goodreads. Would you tell the future readers what they may find inside?
– Sure. Worth The Fall is a love story, plain and simple, though love is never simple. Abby and Matt are two people with no other reason to be together and lots of reasons to be apart. Matt’s a Navy SEAL hero with skills, badassness and an intense sense of responsibility, but he’s also a man with so much love to give. He’s just never found anyone he wanted to give it to. Until Abby. But Abby’s been left all her life and knows she can’t watch another person walk away.
So it’s about falling in love, making choices and taking chances. It’s also about believing you’re enough, believing you’re worthy of what’s being offered. I absolutely LOVE these characters. I spent three years with them before I ever considered writing their story, then almost three more years writing it. Any minute of any day I can pop into their lives, be a fly on the wall. It’s like watching your favorite movie that never ends! Hopefully when people read the book they’ll feel the same.

– What is your book Stinger Maguire about?
– Taryn Maguire is a golf pro who is murdered when he returns to his hometown in Arizona. He is called “Stinger” because he is proficient at a low, line drive golf shot called a stinger. Bruce DelReno, a retired postman and golf enthusiast, discovers the body. Bruce develops a unique relationship with the police since, it seems, people connected with the investigation and Maguire would rather speak with him. Secrets uncovered about Maguire’s past in the small town and his life on the PGA tour lead the police, and Bruce and his cohorts, in many directions. In the end, it is Stinger Maguire’s own secret that answers all of the questions. Bruce’s best friend Ben, an Apache Indian, provides some humor and wisdom, as does Genny, his wife.
