Interview with Erin McCarthy

This interview with the author was posted on Under the Covers Book Blog June 11, 2012.

Erin McCarthy

As you probably know if you follow this blog we love a good sweet and hot romance story, and Ms. Erin McCarthy manages to deliver that everytime.  With some light humor and a lot of heat she always makes us want to be IN her stories.  We are very excited to have her here today, so maidens, please help us welcome Erin McCarthy.

Thank you so much for stopping by UTC, we are fans of our work! 

Thank you and thanks for having me!

I have to admit that you make car racing sexy and even made me want to watch the sport again. What is about drivers that you find is the most appealing?

I think it’s that their job is so clearly competitive by nature. They have to take risks at such high speeds to win, but it’s also requires a lot of strategizing and team work. So when it comes to relationships, they’re going to fight for what they want, which I think is sexy.

Are you a NASCAR fan yourself? How much research did you have to do about the racing world? Was it fun?

I didn’t really know anything about NASCAR until I started writing this series, but I ended up discovering I really love the adrenaline rush of racing. Research is fun because it involves grabbing a few friends and a six pack and going to the track. I had to read a lot on the sport, but just sitting in the stands and watching is the best part.

If we were unforgivably rude and pulled at random five things from your hand bag, what would we find?

Nothing interesting! Just the usual… mints, my wallet, lipsticks, pens. Boring.

What was the last movie you watched? 

I’m not sure… but I did watch the TV show Downton Abby last night. I’m on the second season.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing? 

Gardening, listening to live music, bellydancing, swing dance, sitting on the beach, reading (of course), traveling.

Morning person or Night Owl? 

Night Owl. Morning is the seventh circle of hell. If I wasn’t required to drive my son to school, I would sleep until ten and be damn happy about it.
