I have the wonderful author,Laura Hunsaker,on my blog today. :)
Hi Marie, thanks for asking me! I love chatting about Highlanders :)
*Why do you think Highlanders and Scotland are so popular,both on TV and in books?
I think it's because everyone loves an underdog. The Highlanders were the epitome of the underdog. They had the odds stacked against them, but still fought to preserve their way of life and their people. The idea of a strong, handsome, warrior is something you'll find in any genre (SEAL romance, Viking romance, Paranormal Romance), but the Scottish Highlander is unique in the sense that they were in a fight to survive. Their plaids were outlawed for a time, they were driven out of their homes, they truly were the underdog of the story, and yet they persevered and their customs are still around to this day. We even have Highland Games in my city, which is not known for it's Scottish population. So when you find a hero where everything is against him, and still he overcomes those obstacles, wouldn't you want him to be your hero?
*Who is your favorite author who write Scottish books?
My favorite Scottish Romance author is Monica McCarty. She writes some of the best out there. Margaret Mallory is a close second.
*Any plans on visiting Scotland yourself?
I hope to go next year, but it depends on the kids' schedules.
*When will we get Liam's book?I'm so looking forward reading his story!
I hope to finish this book this year. But finding time to write is not easy with three children and a job. I mainly write late at night when my husband isn't home, so unfortunately I don't get to spend all day in the world of Highlanders and magic.
Many thanks to Laura for the answers!:)

Who is your favorite character in the Reapers MC
series (yes,you have to pick one.;))
That’s tough, because I have favorites that change all the time. Generally I like them best right after
their story has come to me, but before I’ve written it because as I write characters I get frustrated with them. Right now Bolt is one of my favorites, because he has a huge backstory and I play it through my head all the time as I go to sleep at night (that’s how my stories come together). I’ve had so much fun with him and Maggs, and some day I hope to share their story with everyone. I would say Painter is a close second, because I’ve really watched him grow as a character throughout the series. Can’t wait to write his book!
I have read a lot MC Romances and I have to say that your series is one of the best.:)It feels unique!I really like that every book is different.Devil´s Game was New Adult while Reaper´s Stand was mature for example.What is the most challenging writing a MC book?Do you read oth…
