Interview with Kat Martin!

Crystal: Today I am so excited to host Kat Martin! Welcome Kat!!!! Thank you so much for visiting today. Would you share a little bit about yourself with us today? 

Kat: I consider myself fairly boring.  I work all the time, love writing and the solitude it provides.  I’m kind of a hermit, though I do love to travel.  I love fine hotels and gourmet food.  Fortunately, I have a husband who writes and also likes to travel.

Crystal: What are you currently working on?

Kat:  I’m working on the final edits for my June book, Beyond Reason.  It’s the first book in my new Texas Trilogy.  A ruthless Texas drug lord wants to use Drake Trucking, a long-established, well-respected business now run by a woman named Carly Drake, as a cover for his nefarious plans.
    Multi-millionaire Lincoln Cain is determined to protect Carly.  He’s vowed to keep the promise he made to her grandfather, Joe Drake, the man responsible for helping him turn his life around after he was released from prison.
   It’s a high action thriller, a battle of wills as Carly is forced to stand up to Cain while the two of them battle the forces of evil and try to protect their hearts.   Thanks for asking!

Crystal: Where did you come up with the idea for either your current release or your current WIP?
Kat: Since I have no idea what a WIP is, I’ll tell you that I got the idea for INTO THE FIRESTORM, Luke Brodie’s story, when I was writing INTO THE WHIRLWIND, about his best friend, Dirk Reynolds.  I knew the heroine was going to be a female bounty hunter, a woman who could give Luke a run for his money.  But I wanted her to be feminine, a woman who liked being a woman, so it was a fun combination of characters to write. 

Crystal: Do you have a favorite snack that like to munch on while writing? If so would you mind sharing what it is with us?

Kat: I love food.  BUT I don’t snack because I don’t want to gain weight.  Writing is such a sedentary job it is suicidal to eat while you’re working.  I save my calories for a glass of wine at the end of the day and a nice healthy supper.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite scene you would like to share with us?

Kat: I love the after-sex morning scene where Emma is sure she and Luke are over  --he has a rep as a one-night stand kind of guy.  Luke is trying to convince himself of that same thing, but it just doesn’t work--for either of them!  The hot interaction between the two of them was really fun to write.

Crystal: When you are not busy writing wonderful stories to keep us lucky readers entertained, what do you like to do? Do you have a hobby?

Kat: As I said, I love to travel, love staying in great hotels and eating in good restaurants.  I especially enjoy spending time in Europe.  My husband and I have traveled there extensively.  It’s always a wonderful trip.

Crystal: Do you have a favorite background noise you like to having going while you write (TV, Music, kids playing)?

Kat: My husband plays music while he writes.  He watches TV, constantly fills his office with sound.  I like solitude.  I want to be able to watch the book unfolding on the screen in my head.  Quiet is an aphrodisiac for the characters and me.

Crystal: Thanks for visiting. It has been a pleasure having you visit today. Can you think of anything else you would like to share with us today?

Kat: I’d like to thank my readers for all their years of support.  You guys make all the hard work worthwhile.  Hope you like Luke and Emma and that you continue to enjoy my books!  Love ya, kat


At Brodie Operations Security Service, Inc., following your instincts is company policy . . .

M. Cassidy—Luke Brodie had heard the name before, some novice bounty hunter working Seattle, catching tricky skips with more success than a newcomer should expect. But the dark curls, sparkly top, and impressive cleavage were not what Brodie had pictured.

Emma Cassidy is tough and smart and sexy as hell. She’s also popping up a step ahead of him every time he’s close to the capture he wants most . . . and there’s no room for learning on the trail of this monster.

Emma has idolized Luke Brodie, the bounty hunter who can bring anyone in. The big man in the soft shoes, with a face like a fallen angel and a reputation for breaking hearts. Watching him in action is intoxicating. But her fight with Rudy Vance is fiercely personal. If he gets too close, Brodie will find out just how ferocious she can be . . .
