Interview with Renee Vincent: UNFORGETTABLE HEROES Eight Contemporary Romance Novels


Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

I'm an author, a dreamer, a horse owner, and a medieval history buff. I'm a fun-loving, mildly eccentric, free-spirited kind of girl with a passion for books. From an early age, I've always had scenes playing out in my head. Whether it was a story with a moral or a tale with a twist, those ideas have never let me sleep until I wrote them out. And considering I have an eclectic ensemble of stories swarming in my brain at any given time, I write under a couple pen names to accommodate the various genre categories.


(Historical & Contemporary Adult Romance)
From the daunting, charismatic Vikings, to the charming, brazen Alpha male heroes of modern day, you'll be whisked away to a world filled with fast-paced adventure, unforgettable romance, and undying love.


also writing as  Gracie Lee Rose 

(Lighthearted, Fancy-free Women's Fiction/Chick Lit)
For those who love to read fun, wholesome, and endearing romantic stories (with a smidgen of spunk) that your mother, sisters, friends, and daughters can enjoy.


Are you a mom?

Yes! I have two lovely girls ages 15 and 10.

If yes do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting?

I used to. But now I have a pretty good handle on things. I’m a full-time author so I try my hardest to only write when the kids are at school. There are some days when I can’t help but break this rule (edits, deadlines etc.) but my family is very supportive and they understand that sometimes mom has to work.


What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

 I am on the cover with male model Billy Freda for USA Today Bestselling author Shelly Thacker’s AFTER SUNDOWN. What a great day that was!

When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?

I live on a 100 acre horse farm, so my family and I do lots of horseback riding. We have four full-blood Tennessee Walkers and my horse’s name is Statue’s Suddenly Lucky.

Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?

Wolfskin by Juliet Marillier – she is an incredible storyteller! And her research on Vikings is impeccable. I highly recommend this book to historical fans.

Is there a genre(s) that you’d like to write that you haven’t tackled yet?

YA Historical fantasy—I have a plot, a cover, a title, and different pen name all ready to go for this project. I just need to finish it.

What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?

I certainly do. This year is going to be VERY busy for me.
  • March 17, 2014 - EMERALD ISLE TRILOGY Boxed Set
  • April 2014 - THE ROAD TO SOMETHING BETTER (Jamett & Joseph series, Book 2)
  • May 2014 - THE GIFT OF SOMETHING GRAND (Jamett & Joseph series, Book 3)
  • June 2014 - JAMETT & JOSEPH SERIES Boxed Set
  • July 2014 - WHERE THE WIND BLOWS
  • late November 2014 - MISTLETOE AND TINSEL (A Christmas Novella)
  • 2015 THE WARRIOR'S CAPTIVE - (Warrior Saga series, Book 2)

What book are you reading now?

Lots of Kristan Higgins books. She writes first person POV humorous romance and I’m loving her light-hearted style of writing. Hence, the reason I branched off from my deep, plot-twisting romances under Renee Vincent and started penning ChickLit novellas under Gracie Lee Rose.

What is in your to read pile?

I’m very excited to get back to reading historical romances again. Many are waiting for me on my kindle: Jianne Carlo’s Viking romance books, Gina Conkle’s Norse Jewel, Sharon Page’s regency books, etc.
