Welcome to the Nice Girls Writing Naughty version of the A-Z Challenge! Today’s featured guest author is Heather Knight.
Here’s a little more about Heather:
Heather Knight doesn’t go for billionaires with helicopters or country club fellas who sip Moscow Mules by the pool. She likes her men Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to know. She began reading romance when she was thirteen and apocalyptic fiction during college. She’s combined her love for the two genres in her new adult romance series, which is set shortly after a catastrophic worldwide event. Her books push the boundaries of both romance and erotica and are classified as Dark Romance.
Heather lives in the Mid-Atlantic with her own bad boy and dreams of one day leaving that snow behind forever.
Check out Heather’s SNOW AND ASH post-apocalyptic dark romance series HERE. It includes The General’s Daughter, Stolen Melody, The Other Brother, and Five O’Clock Shadow. She also writes YA post-apocalyptic as HO Knight.
And here’s her interview:
Tell us a little about your newest release.
Squeee! My next release will come out in September (although I don’t have a specific date just yet). It is about a young woman who spent her teenage years being home-schooled by overprotective parents, and she’s dying to experience not just life, but life on the edge. She meets a deliciously gorgeous guy in a bar, and her encounter with him is a panty-scorcher. He seems to be everything she needs, and vice versa, but both of them have secrets—big ones that could tear them apart and leave my heroine trapped in her cotton-padded life forever. It’s a romance, of course. I can’t wait to share it!
What story first hooked you as a reader?
I don’t remember the name of it. I was 13 and it was a Harlequin Romance. And they did IT! Daa-um!
When did you know you first HAD to write?
I’ve always made up stories in my head. I thought everyone did that. People ask me all the time where I get my ideas and I just stare at them. I don’t know, they’re just there. I first realized I was a writer when I was bored one day and decided to write one of my made up stories down. I’d been stuck on it and I wanted to dump it on paper so I could go onto my next “imagining.” Four hours later I had pages in. This was what—8 years ago, maybe? I didn’t “know I had to write.” I just didn’t want to stop. And I haven’t yet. I can’t—the stories just keep coming.
Introvert or Extrovert? How does this affect your work?
OMG introvert. It means I can block out everything and everyone and focus entirely on my writing. I enter the world of my books, and reality fades away.
How do you deal with real-life distractions (job, kids, cats, birds chirping…)?
What is this thing you call distractions?
