Please welcome my special guest today, The Wild Rose Press author Ann Campbell, whose debut novella, Lights Out, was recently released through the Scarlet Rose Line.
Born and raised in Texas, Ann spent a few years after high school working in other states. She trained race horses in Oklahoma, worked for a hotel in New Mexico and on a guest ranch in Colorado before returning home and finding the love of her life. Married with two children, she spends her days chasing the baby, feeding the zoo that lives on thier 11 acres and trying to squeeze in the time to write.
Can you tell us a little about your book?
It is just a short little story about two friends who have been fighting their attraction for each other and finally find the right moment to come together. It takes place in the Colorado Rockies during a january snow storm. Yumm! what better way to stay warm than with a hot stud :)
How did the idea for the plot come about?
I worked on a Guest Ranch in the Colorado Rockies for awhile. One of my co-workers was a super studly, very sexy melt in your mouth kind of guy. We were friends and did a lot of things together but he had a girlfriend and made it clear to me he would never cheat on her even if he did want to help me take care of a problem :) We are still very good friends and have talked occasionally about the what if's.
I love sale stories (ok I am just nosy!!) so can you tell us about your road to publication - and your call story?
When I first started writing I was working on a story I still have not finished. I decided that for a first submission, it might be better to sub something small. SO, I spend a whopping 6 hours and wrote LIGHTS OUT, sent it to a friend to read and she loved it. So I sent it to TWRP. Then I got a contract.
We are all about the love here, so please share your fave books, movies, TV shows or current fantasy squeeze (it's all in the line of research!)
I LOVE the Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon. as far as TV since I don't get cable in the sticks I have a thing for House and Bones. There is just something about Dr House and Agent Booth that I find VERy sexy
What are you working on now?
LOL I have 8 stories sitting on my desktop right now. all of them at various stages of completion. I kinda bounce from one to another depending on the day and what my muse tells me to do.
How can readers keep up with your writing and books?
