Interview with Katheryn Lane

Why did you write this
book?
I love Texas
and I’ve been lucky enough to visit it several times. The Texas Cowboy begins with
Vicky seeing the cowboy, Jack, for the first time while she’s out shopping with
her cousin and this opening scene was inspired by something I saw one afternoon
in Dallas. I was
in Highland Park Village and across the road I saw a cowboy
standing outside Hermes, holding one of their trademark boxes. Unlike Vicky, I didn’t
have the nerve to take a picture of him (I wish I had), and he didn’t wink at me,
but I did begin to wonder about who he was and who the orange box was for.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I love to read a wide range of books, but my favorite has to
be romance. I love classic authors, such as Jane Austen and Shakespeare – Romeo
and Juliet must be one of the greatest love stories of all time – but I also enjoy
reading books by more modern romance writers, such as Nora Roberts and Jackie Collins.
In addition, ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved reading fairy tales. I guess
my love of romance started with stories like Sleeping Beauty and I have ‘borrowed’
several ideas from fairy tales for my own books. For example, the first part of
my latest sheikh romance, A Bride For The Sheikh, is loosely based on Cinderella.
What is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own characters)?
That’s a difficult question! There are so many wonderful characters
in literature that it’s like asking me to pick a favorite from a box of chocolates!
However, a couple of people do stand out. I love Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the
Wind and Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. Although they are from different
eras and places, they are both witty, willful, beautiful women who are willing to
stand up for themselves in a male dominated world. At the beginning of each book,
they make the wrong choices and decisions, but in the end they discover who they
are and what they really want in life.
Do you enjoy films and/or
TV shows? Which are your favorites?
I’m afraid I don’t have much free time to watch TV as most of
my time is taken up with work (I’m a high school teacher), looking after my children
and writing. However, when I get the chance I do like to go to the cinema and see
a good movie. I live in the Middle East, so the
cinemas here only show a limited range of films and they’re often heavily censored
which can sometimes make it hard to follow the plot! However, we get cable and occasionally
I’ll find the time to watch a great movie on TV. I’m not sure if I have a favorite,
but I always love watching anything with Antonio Banderas in it. He was a great
sheikh in Day of the Falcon and gorgeous in Zorro. I also love Johnny Depp – so
sexy!
What are you working on
at the moment, and what are we likely to see from you in the coming months?
I have several things in the pipeline, including another possible
sheikh romance, but the main thing I’m working on at the moment is a potential sequel
to The Texas Cowboy. Although I originally wrote The Texas Cowboy as a stand-alone
novel, several readers have started to ask me about the hero and heroine’s future.
I don’t think I’d be giving too much away if I said that The Texas Cowboy ends,
like all good fairy tales and romance novels, with the hero, Jack, and heroine,
Vicky, overcoming the many obstacles that have confronted them and telling each
other how much they love each other. As with many romance novels, it’s implied that
they will get married and live happily ever after. However, readers have been asking
about their wedding and if Vicky’s rich Dallas
cousin will take over their wedding plans. Therefore, I might write a sequel and
perhaps call it The Texas Bride.
Please tell us about your
latest book.
The Texas Cowboy is my first cowboy romance; most of my other
romances have been sheikh romances inspired by what I see and hear where I live
in the Middle East. However, like my other novels,
The Texas Cowboy has lots of action, unexpected twists and turns, and plenty of
heartache, before the hero and heroine end up in each others arms, happily ever
after.
Everything’s bigger in Texas, including the problems.

Author Bio

I’m a wife, teacher, author and mother of two boisterous boys,
so most of my days are taken up with finding lost school shoes, getting stuck in
traffic and wondering why I always join the queue that doesn’t move in the supermarket.
However, I try to forget these daily problems (and the fact that I burnt the toast
again this morning) by losing myself in a good book and writing novels that give
readers a break from everyday life.
Open one of my books and escape on a romantic adventure, because
it’s easier to buy a book than it is to book an air ticket.
Have a break, read a book!
