NFL quarterback Seth Blake is having an unbelievable hot streak–he’s
won his third Super Bowl title the same day his wife Morgan gave birth to their
son. Life couldn’t be better for the new father and MVP. His contract with the Philadelphia
Titans expires in a year, giving him a chance to make a professional dream come
true: to play in his home state for the Texas Wildcats and return to his much-missed
Twelve Horseshoes Ranch–this time, for good.
Morgan Reed-Blake has never been happier. She’s got the best
husband, the cutest baby, and she’s successfully juggling career and family. Her
bookstore is expanding, her charitable organization is growing, and she’s been offered
her dream job on the literacy council. Everything in her Philadelphia world is coming up roses. Until Seth’s
contract with the Titans expires, and his dream of returning home comes close enough
to touch…and the powers that be in Texas
start romancing Seth in earnest. Morgan and Seth both have dreams. But a choice
has to be made…

Interview

How did you get your start in the industry?
I got my start many years
ago when a small magazine published a short story I had written during down time
in college. Several years later I decided to pursue it again and to take the tumble
down the rabbit hole.
What is the most important thing you do for your career now,
as compared to when you first started writing?
A book needs nurturing
even after publication. I strategize more about where I am headed with the stories
I write and what I am trying to accomplish by writing it.
What websites do you visit daily?
I always tune into Twitter
and Facebook.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
I enjoy creating worlds
with unique characters that take on a life of their own.
If you could give the younger version of yourself advice what
would it be?
Being a late bloomer
is a good thing!
What is your work ethic when it comes to writing?
I don’t force the words
to come. If that means some time away from the laptop, then I do it for the sake
of the story I’m trying to complete.
What do you think is the future of traditional publishing?
I think traditional publishing
is finding a way to work successfully with new technology. I believe printed books
and e-books can live in harmony with a mutual respect for each other.
Imagine you get to go on a dream vacation, but you have only
one hour to pack and leave, and it starts as soon as you finish this interview.
What will you take with you and where will you go?
I would go to California and I would take
an overnight bag filled with essentials like my laptop, iPod, camera and few clothing
items.
What is your favorite holiday and why?
I like Christmas because
people are a bit nicer because they are filled with the holiday spirit.
If you were a color, what color would you be?
I would be the color
blue. Blue is cool, fluid and it puts people at ease.
Please underline which statement is more like you:
“I am a vacation spa because I am laid back and relaxed.”
“I am a ten-countries in ten-days tour vacation, because
I do things as fast as possible.”

Please complete the sentences

I love pizza with Dr. Pepper soda.
I’m always ready for a Golden Girls marathon.
When I’m alone, I like to watch television.
You’d never be able to tell, but I like to crochet.
If I had a halo it would be glowing.
If I could travel back in time I’d learn how to sky

I can never have a cat because I’m a dog person.
