INTERVIEW & GIVEAWAY~ AUTHOR SANDY SULLIVAN





1. Before we start talking about your book, why don’t you tell everybody a little bit about yourself?

I write historical and contemporary erotic romance in the subgenre of westerns. I do love my cowboys. As a registered nurse by trade, I tend to put some pretty realistic emergency situations in my books at times although I’ve been told by my readers they hate to see me kill off a character. I live in Middle Tennessee with my husband of 14 years, 4 horses, 2 dogs and 2 cats. All of which are spoiled beyond belief. I have six children, all of which are grown now and on their own. I do love being an empty-nester. I love creating new situations for my cowboys to fall in love with the woman of their dreams.

2. Besides writing, what other things do you enjoy doing in your spare time?   I like to ride my horses, play with my dogs, sit on the porch of our home and watch the sun go down. The typical country life for me. I do enjoy reading other authors I love and admire like Desiree Holt, Tonya Ramagos and so many others.

3. What is your daily routine as far as when you have an idea for your story?  I’m a panster by nature so as long as the characters are talking with me, I’m good to go. They get stubborn sometimes so I have to coax them along. I’m not an earlier riser per se. I’m up around eight in the morning, have a cup of coffee or two, clear my email and do business/promotion stuff. I try to write in the evenings and on weekends.
4. Where do you get your ideas from?  I can get ideas from just about anywhere. I enjoy people watching and making up stories in my head for them by what I see. They don’t even have to be together in real life, but I can weave a story around a glance, a song…just about anything.
5. Out of all of the stories you’ve written so far, what would be your favorite and why?  Probably Wild Wyoming Nights. That one has a special place in my heart, but each story is my favorite as I’m writing it.
6. Tell us something funny about yourself that not a lot of people know about?  I recently thought about getting a tattoo. My husband would kill me, but I chickened out. I’m not even sure what I’d get, but I thought about it.
7. Are any of the stories you’ve written based on real life experiences or are they basically just from imagination?  Every story has a bit of me in it, but they aren’t normally based on a real life situation. Imagination is a great thing.
8. Does your ‘muse’ have a name and if so what is his/her name?  I haven’t given my muse a name. I guess I should probably do that although my muse comes in many different faces. Usually a gorgeous cowboy sitting on the edge of my desk tapping his spurs against the side until I write his story.
9. What other genre besides the one you are writing about now would you like to venture into writing? I have several fans who want me to write a cowboy shifter which I’m contemplating. Unfortunately, I already have too much on my plate.
10. Who are your favorite authors that are out now? I love several smaller press authors. Desiree Holt, Cherise Sinclair, Kallypso Masters, Tonya Ramagos and many, many others.

Book Blurb:

Jeffery Young is tired of women and their games. His son’s mother did enough damage to his heart to last a lifetime. Now, he had to deal with the architect helping the land developers tear up the local ranches for their houses. Not on his watch. Terri Kennedy had her own plans. As the architect for a large land development in Bandera Texas, the deal would put her business on the map, but dealing with the stubborn, bullheaded male from the local ranch didn’t come with her job description. Maybe staying on their guest ranch would give her some clues as how to handle Mr. Stubborn Jackass. Will the secrets she’s harboring keep him from getting close? Can he learn to trust women again or should be play the game to find out what’s she’s up to?
