Interview and Giveaway: Hunter of Her Heart by Kaylie Newell

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

I live in Southern Oregon with my husband and two little girls.  We have two cats and an extremely lazy Chihuahua mix.  (He’s actually more of a throw pillow with ears.)

I write contemporary, paranormal, romantic suspense.  My idol is Stephen King and the only person I’d probably lose consciousness from meeting.  I’m also not above stalking him, but that’s another story ;)

Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

Hunter of Her Heart is the second book in my Wolfe Creek Series.  This is Zane Wolfe’s story- he’s a bad boy, Native American hottie, and a guy who’s about to get in touch with a side of himself that’s a little too wild for comfort.  

Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?

That’s the best part of writing! ;)  I went through a bad breakup in my late teens, so I wrote the guy into a book.  I gave him a potbelly and an unnatural love for breakfast burritos.  It was pure awesomesauce.  

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I’m addicted to iCarly.  I love tween TV.  It’s weird how much.

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

I just started getting into running.  Truthfully, I don’t really run…  It’s more like a fast waddle.  But there’s sweating involved.  And some swearing.  So I guess I’m doing it right.

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

I would love to write a historical someday, but the research is daunting.  I do love reading them, though.  With the right story, you actually feel like you’re traveling through time.  So magical!

What book are you reading now?

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.  I love her stuff!  I’m also planning on getting Stephen King’s latest, Finders Keepers.  I’ll get that one in audio book.  I always like to have a book to listen to.  Such a great way to get stories under your belt when you don’t have a lot of time to read-

Tagline: To love a bad boy is to love the beast inside him…

About the Book:

Bad boy Zane Wolfe has always been wild and reckless. Even though he’s hot for his high school sweetheart, Candi Brooks, settling down has never been in his plans. Beyond that, he’s changing in strange ways—and begins to wonder if there's truth to the local folklore that claims his family is cursed to be werewolves...

There's never been a time when waitress Candi didn't have a serious weakness for Zane and his intense, dark sex appeal. She craves him. But after her life changes dramatically, and Zane won’t commit, Candi’s reached her limit. She can't wait she's taking her heart off the table before it gets good and broken.

Something mysterious is going on in Wolfe Creek, and danger stalks Candi. Zane will do anything he can to protect her. But the one person she needs protection from might just be him…

About the Author:

For Kaylie Newell, writing ranks right up there with the things she loves most in life- falling somewhere behind her family, but ahead of Bradley Cooper (which says a lot).  She fell in lust with the romance genre when she was about thirteen and began sneaking her mother’s paperbacks from the bedside table.  After acne, college, marriage and kids, she decided to take a crack at writing one herself.  Turned out to be the best adventure she’s ever taken.  When she’s not dreaming up her next book, she’s usually eating chocolate or walking the family mutt.  In that order.
