Becky: Thanks so much for having me Galen. Fated Souls is a paranormal romance between Maggie, a tabloid reporter from the East Coast, and Aidan, a horse rancher/werewolf from Trappers’ Cove, Minnesota.
Galen: What was the inspiration for your Fated Souls?
Becky: There was an incident between my father’s late dog and I that inspired me to write a short story and that story blossomed into the book.
Galen: What’s your favorite line from one of your books?
Becky: Maggie pulled her head back resting one palm against the side of his face and with a sweet smile, said, “You’re forgiven. But if you ever touch my radio again, you’ll pull away a bloody stump.”
Galen: What started you on the road to writing romance?
Becky: I’m a sucker for a happily ever after. ♥
Galen: Do you remember the first romance book you read? If so, who was the author? What made it stick with you?
Becky: I sure do! It was a Harlequin Presents, Ishbel’s Party by Stacy Absolom; I may be misspelling her last name. I still have the book but it is in storage and I haven’t read it in years.
Galen: Are you a pantzer or plotter?
Becky: A plotter with her pantz off. I set off with a plot, but I once I get going, the story takes off on its course and I’m just along for the ride. The story has never naturally concluded as plotted. A few times I’ve made myself stick to the outline as prepared; and I tossed those finished pieces in the recycling bin. I hated them; the story, the characters, everything felt very stiff. They were just awful!
Galen: What are the three books you’d have if you were stranded on a deserted isle?
Becky: 365 Meals You Can Prepare with Pineapple, Basic First Aid & CPR for Dummies, My Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux
Galen: Name two blogs you read every day.
Becky: I love The Book Tart and the HEA blog on USA Today online.\
Galen: Describe your workspace.
Becky: I work from a laptop. So any spot in the house, where I can get comfortable for a few minutes of peace and quiet, becomes a workspace. Until the kids find me that is, lol.
Galen: Where would you like to travel to if you had to research an area?
Becky: Ireland. I dream of going there.
Galen: If you could have any other job, (not your current writing or day job) what would it be?
Becky: I’d be a librarian. Being surrounded by all those words is an intoxicating idea!
Galen: What do you do when you are not writing?
Becky: Read, dance, and wash dishes.
Galen: Best and worst part of being a writer.
Becky: The best part is taking something that only exists in my own imagination and making it something tangible that exists for someone else. And the worst part is the flip side of that same coin – trying to find the right combination of words that makes what’s in my imagination come alive for someone else .
Galen: What was the best piece of advice given to you?
Becky: Reach for your stars!
