My interview with author Laura wright.

Hi Marie! Thanks for having me:)

*You are the Queen of Cliffhangers and at the end of Broken I'm already want to read Brash! Will we know who murdered Cass in Brash?
Queen of Cliffhangers, huh? I like that! Lol.. But.. and don't hate me.. I can't give you a definitive answer. I can say you will know a lot more about Cass's murder. (you hate me now right?)

*When I was reading Branded & Broken there were moments when I needed to take a break because it was so emotional.When you are writing these scenes do you also feel like you need to take a break from all the emotions?
Yes. It's actually a strange thing. Sometimes I get so caught up in the emotions as I'm writing I find I can't breathe. Or.. I'm not breathing well. I have to stop and lie down.. get myself together. Their emotions cause me anxiety. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I want it to ring true.

*The Cavanaugh Brothers series has a darker concept and I really like these kind of books because without darkness there can't be light.What is the darkest book you have read?
Probably Karen Marie Monings Fever series. I couldn't function after reading those books. I felt emotionally ripped apart.
What about you? Darkest book you've read?

About the author

Unlike many of my peers in the writing world, I wasn’t a writer or a reader until I left high school. During my youth I was into theater, song and dance, commercials and boys. I loved romance surely, but I had never read a romance novel until my late teens. With that said, I remember the day I did like it was a moment ago - my aunt gave me the Jude Deveraux novel, Knight in Shining Armor and I couldn’t put it down until the very last word. Then I went straight to the library and got another – then another until I’d read everything she’d ever written. After that, it was McNaught, Howard, Schone, Kleypas, and the Silhouette line, Desire. I instantly loved those emotional, sexy reads, so much so that I began to carve out ideas for my own stories, themes that were unique to me and moved me. In 1997 I enrolled in UCLA extension writing classes, met my mentor and critique partners and since have never stopped writing. I was committed then and I still am now; the need to tell my own romantic stories a full on obsession. My first manuscript was rejected, and though the second one was as well the editor who’d rejected it wanted to see something else from me. I had something (note to authors; always keep working, even after you’ve sent in a proposal) and sent it right away. The day I got the call telling me Desire wanted to buy Cinderella and the Playboy was the best day of my life. That is until I married my husband, and had my two beautiful children. But I must say, writing is much like motherhood – tough, grueling, surprising, delicious and for me, a dream come true.
