Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
I'm a one at a time girl. I find that I can't read anyone else when I write either. And with writing twelve books in 2018, I have unfortunately done very little reading.

Pen or type writer or computer?  
Computer but I keep a pen and notebook around, to jot ideas and quotes.

What made you want to become an author and do you feel it was the right decision?
Nine years ago, my dad was dying from lung cancer and he sat me down and told me that he wanted for me to write. I laughed it off and even told him that I'd use his name, as my pen name, should that ever happen. Years later, my husband kept saying that I should try to write some of the crazy characters that I came up with and I once again laughed it off. One day, I just sat down and started writing and I'm so happy that I did. I am amazed at how well it has all turned out.

A day in the life of the author?
I get up at 6:10, drive kids to bus stops and college, run home and do some housework or write. Social media, play with kittens, promote, write, answer emails, play with kittens. Pick up kids, write some more, play with kittens. Feed kids, clean up, play with kittens, skype with husband, play with kittens, write and finally sleep (if I'm lucky!).

What is your writing process? For instance, do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?
I have a loose outline but, my characters don't always follow it. I just sit down and try to make word count every day. Some days, I write well beyond my goal and others, I quit and catch up on my favorite tv shows.

What is your writing Kryptonite?
I don't have any.

If you could tell your younger self anything, what would it be?  
Spend more time with your grandmothers and father. Learn to forgive, even when you don't completely understand. It's okay not to be in a hurry. Everything works out the way it's supposed to. Your kids are going to be complete nut jobs and they rock!

How long on average does it take you to write a book?
I can get a book done and out in 30 to 45 days, depending on the length.

Do you believe in writer's block?
Nope. When things aren' clicking, I just change them around until they do. If I let loose and just listen to my characters, everything usually works out.



Worth the Wait
The Harvest Ridge Series Book 1
by K.L. Ramsey
Genre: Contemporary Romance 


Taggert Harrison knows what he wants, and he wants Piper Flynn. She is the most stubborn woman that he’s ever laid eyes on. He has spent the last year begging her to go out with him. Every Monday morning, for the past fifty-two weeks, he has asked her out only to be rejected fifty-two times. He wants to give up, but he knows how good it could be, if he could just tear down her walls. Will Tag be able to help Piper get over her painful past to move on to a future with him?


Piper Flynn witnessed the horrific murders of her parents when she was just twelve. She grew up isolated and afraid to let anyone get too close to her for fear of losing them. When Tag asks her out, everything in her wants to tell him yes, but her past ghosts keep her from taking what she wants. Tag could be her first, in every way, if she could just free her heart from the walls that she has carefully built up around it.





The Christmas Wedding

He teaches Lorna that age is just a number and dreams can come true, especially at Christmas.


Jonathan Sawyer’s job is to keep Lorna’s family safe, he never imagined that job would also include protecting her heart. He just needs to convince Lorna that wishing for her heart’s desire and Christmas miracles are both possible. Can Sawyer’s plan, for a Christmas wedding be enough to show her that it’s never too late to find happily ever after? 





K. L. Ramsey was born and raised in Maryland. As a child she struggled in school, having to attend speech and reading therapy. Her teacher told her that she would never be a very good reader; that English was just not her thing. She continued to struggle until eleventh grade, when she signed up for a Creative Writing class. Her high school teacher saw her potential and submitted a short story, that K. L. had written for class, to a local literary publication. The story was not only published but won an award for best short story. Knowing that someday she wanted to become a writer, K. L. received her BA in English from Salisbury State University.


K. L. Ramsey currently resides in West Virginia (Go Mountaineers!). She lives with hunky scientist, two now not so little people, and six fur babies. In her spare time, she likes to read romance novels, attend WVU football games and drink wine with girlfriends.
