Our guest is Laura Wright!

Laura is the author of several Silhouette Desires but her biggest accomplishment has to be that of Mommy. I'm thrilled to have Laura as our guest, and be sure to check out the end of this blog for a contest!

1. What is the title of your latest release and what’s
it about?

crazy title, right? If I recall correctly, my title

2. What is the hardest part of writing?

Honestly, the hardest part of writing is my lack of
time. I have 2 little ones and they keep me very
busy. Hell, even when I do have the time to write, I
make frequent trips downstairs to see them.. I'm such
a sucker:-)

3. How do you stay motivated?

I love writing. Pretty simple.
There is nothing like getting a new idea, seeing it on
the page, published, and high-of-all-highs, hearing
someone say they love it too.

4. Which authors or friends have influenced you over
the years, whether for their writing or for their

ooooooo, toughy.
Well, I have to say Jude Deveraux and Victoria Holt
are big influences for me because they were my
introduction to the romance world. Also, my teacher
and friend, Barbara Ankrum, who showed me everything
from how to put a sentence together to the importance
of emotion, to the hero's journey. And then I have
several friends in the industry to pick up my
despressed backside when I get a heinous review, or
remind me why it is I write at all when I forget.
Jennifer Apodaca, Julie Ganis...these women rock!

5. Tell us about what's coming up for you.

Millionaire's Calculated Baby Bid (jeez, i'm out of
breath from just writing that title) is the first book
of my wife-for-hire series, NO RING REQUIRED. It's
about 3 women who are in business together, but not
neccessarily friends, not yet, who try to keep the
secrets of their pasts hidden from each other and the
men that come into their lives.
You can read exerpts from each book on my website if
you're interested, then afterward, come and mock me on
my blog...

Sounds like a great book...title is a bit of tongue twister...but memorable!

The series really sounds interesting too.

Laurie G said...

I love the "Desire" line, also Blazes... miss the Temptation line. Congrats on the book! I don't know how you find the quiet to write with two little ones!!
Looking forward to reading more of your "wife-for-hire" series!!

tetewa said...

I'd love to be in for the copy! As for the title I've seen longer.

Laura Wright said...

It is a tongue twister, but I suppose there's no question about what the book is, right? lol...

Laurie - right now I sit here trying to get into my next Desire, which is a continuity, and my kids are asking me nonstop questions about penguins and how to put this delicately...go to the bathroom? so, writing romance ain't easy:-)

good luck you guys!

Great interview. Sounds like a great book.

Maureen said...

I like the secrets aspect. It sounds intriguing.

Cherie J said...

Enjoyed the interview! It is a long line but at least you know what you are getting up front. :-)

Laura Wright said...

Too true, Cherie...

Maureen and crystalG,
If you like hot, but very emotional reads, this is a good book for you. Truth is, I write what I like to read...for ex: JR Ward's series..anybody reading it? Those books are super sexy, but packed with emotions and it!


Sue A. said...

I like books with secrets, because you know they have to come eventually!

Laura Wright said...

Bless your heart, blessedheart! What attracts you specifically in the title, if you don't mind me asking?


acdaisy95 said...

I enjoyed the interview. Sounds like a great read!

Eva S said...

Sounds great, I like series. When the characters reappear it's like meeting old friends...
I have just finished Lover Unbound by JR Ward and can't wait for the next book!!

Laura Wright said...

eve - There was much controversy surrounding that book - what did you think of the ending? I was okay with it..

How do you you all feel as a reader when the author goes in the total opposite direction you thought she'd go in?
