Today, I’m happy to host newly published author MaryAnn Kempher whose new book MOCHA, MOONLIGHT, AND MURDER will be FREE on Amazon.com 11-15 June.
Thank you so much for having me Marie.
MaryAnn, I thought we’d start with a few questions:
Why don’t you tell us a little about MOCHA, MOONLIGHT, AND MURDER.
First, it’s Romantic Suspense. I like to tell people if you like Jane Austen and/or Agatha Christie, you’ll love this book. It’s Romance and Mystery, and suspense, and comedy. And everyone who has read it has said, they didn’t see the ending coming. Which, to me, is a huge compliment.
The eventual romance is very realistic, very friendship-based, and doesn’t come easy.
Your Book has a lot of humor in it, mostly between the two main characters.
Yes, Katherine and Scott were made to harass each other. Because they’re friends, and aren’t trying to get each other into bed, they’re not afraid to give each other a hard time, this makes for some very funny dialogue. But the waiting ensures great sexual tension for them, and the reader. It also gives their romance a solid foundation.
How long did it take you to write your book?
I started writing my book on September 8th 2008. But that date is misleading. I didn’t write consistently at first. Sometimes weeks would go by without writing. Those first drafts were real stinkers. The book was finally in really good shape in 2012. I started sending it out, and finally in December, a publisher expressed an interest in publishing my book.
Are you working on anything new?
Yes, I’m working on my second book. It’s not an actual sequel, but characters from my first book will make cameo appearances.
Is your second book Romantic Suspense too?
Yes, but less romance this time and more mystery. It’s set on a cruise ship. Two people are murdered and it’s up to the new head of security to find the killer before the cruise returns to port. If he doesn’t, the local police will take over, and he doesn’t want that.
Will this book have humor too?
Yes, always. Wherever there’s romance, there’s humor.
