Interview - Waiting For You by Melissa Kate



Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

Audrey Kelly finds her way back home to Crystal Valley with her bruised pride and a shattered dangerous past mocking her rear view mirror. What she didn’t expect was to be face-to-face with Adam Parker, resident bad boy, sexy Navy SEAL and one of the reasons that Audrey ran all those years ago.

Audrey was the last person Adam had ever expected to see back in Crystal Valley. Over a decade ago, they shared a sizzling night together before he received the worst news of his life and he hasn’t seen her since…until she’d moved back unexpectedly. She was no longer the sweet innocent girl he once remembered, but Adam has his own problems without having to deal with Audrey’s ice princess recital, no matter how tempting the auburn haired seductress may be.

Sparks begin to ignite between them but can they accept Audrey’s past when it threatens to engage them in a dangerous twist? Can they save each other from themselves and stop running once and for all?

If you are a parent do you find it hard to juggle writing and parenting? Any tips for time management or sneaking in writing time?

I have a little Beagle puppy who is attached to me at the hip, he’s basically my shadow. I adore him to bits and he is very much my child. He also demands a lot of my time and attention, oftentimes pulling my papers away or resting his head ON my laptop when I am working. Writing is work – make the time for it. I have a full time day job and by the time I get home, my brain is fried so I don’t always have the energy to crack open my laptop when I get home. What I do though is carve out my time on the weekends. Early mornings with complete peace and quiet. I jot down my ideas and work off a plan to keep me focused. And I keep to a word goal for each day – this is usually 5000 words a day. Not an easy task.

Is there a theme or message in your work that you would like readers to connect to?

My message is always to be a strong, independent woman and to rise up above your circumstances. And as a man, you can be a caveman, rough and rugged, but always love, respect and protect your woman.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I am pint sized, teeny tiny. Oh and I can move my ears without touching them. Oh AND I have a pretty decent Irish accent. J


Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?

My current story (in the works), my hero is just adorable and funny. He’s my favorite so far – you will see why when the book is released.

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

I have another book coming out in the next few months… the details will be published soon but I can tell you the title… Love in the Fast Lane.

What book are you reading now?

I am sans books right now because I need to get my own story out. I get really sucked in and can’t put a good book down so I’m abstaining till my third book is complete.

What is in your to read pile?

Jill Shalvis – Sweet Little Lies
