Hi Kylie! Welcome to UTC! Since this is your first visit here, let’s get to know you a little more. Tell us five interesting things about yourself that readers wouldn’t know.
Thank you very much for letting me visit! Alrighty, five things about me:
1. I have tattoos of books on my upper right arm. I figured if I was going to get tattooed somewhere relatively public, it had better be ink about something I love.
2. I play the guitar. Not well, but still, it counts.
3. One of the first rock concerts I ever went to was Warrant of “Cherry Pie” fame. I’m not saying I’m proud…
4. I’m Australian born and bred. I’ll be making my first ever trip to the U.S. this October for a book signing in Portland. I am seriously over excited about it!
5. Lick is my third book. I’ve actually had two Post-Zombie-Apocalypse Erotic Romances called Flesh and Skin, published previously. The zombies don’t do it. I leave the smexy stuff up to the survivors. They need that life-affirming, hot and sweaty, action.
LICK is your New Adult Contemporary Romance that is out right now! Could you please tell us a little about LICK?
Lick is about a girl who goes to Vegas for her 21st birthday and drinks ALL the drinks. Every last one of them. She wakes up the next morning with a hang-over and a husband, who just happens to be a big rock star. Whether or not they can build a relationship from such a crazy start, is the story I’m telling.
Why did you decide to write a story about a rock star? It must have been a really tough decision to spend so much time with David 😉
Ahhh, David. He was a pleasure to write. I think if you’d spent a good chunk of your life living the rock and roll life style, you couldn’t help but be jaded. Also, artists and musicians are funny, complex creatures. Not so easy to live with. They’re passionate but their minds are elsewhere a lot of the time. Plus, he’s hot. I really admire that about him.
Care to share your favorite quote from the book? And please tell us why you love it so much!
“Seriously, I f**king love your wife, man. She’s awesome. Can I have her?”
Mal said it, David’s friend and the drummer for Stage Dive. He’s one of those off the wall people with no filters. This makes him a lot of fun to have around. I love a man with a sense of humour.
Mal Mal Mal! I LOVE this guy! Please tell me he gets his own book!
Mal’s book will be #2 in the Stage Dive series. He really does need to be smacked upside the head by love.
Yay! So excited for Mal’s book!
Which rock star would you like to wake up married to in real life?
Ooh, good question. I do have a soft spot for Adam Levine. Chris Cornell on the other hand, what an amazing voice. And Jeff Buckley was one incredible, talented, beautiful man. So many choices…
Did you have someone in mind while writing both David and Evelyn’s characters?
My main visual muse for David was male model, Vinnie Woolston. You’re welcome. Evelyn is roughly based on Jennifer Lawrence. She’s a take no nonsense kind of girl and I love that.
How many more books in the series can we expect?
Four books in all are planned, one for each of the boys in the band.
Have you ever “faked” reading a book, and if so, which one?
I have lied about finishing “War and Peace” before. The truth is that at about 100 pages I lost interest and track of who was who. I decided that one wasn’t for me.
If you could write a warning label for yourself as a person or an author, what would it say?
Likes to write sweet, smutty and gritty. Loves the F-Bomb a bit too much.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Thank you very much!
Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.
Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.
One thing is for certain, being married to rock and roll’s favourite son is sure to be a wild ride.
