Author Interview

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?

My books are intended for cozy loving readers. If you’re looking for a hard hitting thriller, I’m not your girl. But if you love small towns and a touch of romance, you’ll love my series.  I have series set in Idaho, Colorado, California, and soon, I’ll have a second Idaho series (more on this below) and a short New Orleans novella series. 

Who is your favorite character from your book and why?
Of course, Cat Latimer is a lot like me since she’s a writer, but I love writing Shauna. Her Irish roots give her a little spice to her personality. She used to be a bartender and now she’s a house manager/chef/co-owner for the Bed and Breakfast- Writers retreat that is set in Aspen Hills, Colorado.  Shana gets to do all the fun things in running a bed and breakfast which to me is the baking. I love baking so adding new items to her menu is fun for me. Especially when I taste test the recipes.

If you could change ONE thing about your novel, what would it be?  Why?
I always want to change things after the book is done and has gone through probably eight different edit processes. Sometimes it’s little things, like changing a characters reaction to news or events. But mostly, I know I did the best I could do on the book and I’ll just have to accept it as published.

Do you have any unique talents or hobbies?
Unique? Maybe in today’s world, yeah. I’m love baking, cooking and other home arts. I know how and enjoy quilting and sewing, crochet, and counted cross stitch.  I love doing counted cross stitch all in one color. I’m more of a big picture girl, even in my crafting. 

How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
Best way would be to sign up for my newsletter. I hold exclusive giveaways there and you get the first look at my covers. I send a newsletter at least once a month. All the books are listed on my website –

What can we expect from you in the future?
In addition to continuing the series on Tourist Trap and Farm to Fork, I’m starting up a new paranormal culinary cozy series. The first novella (Chili Caldron Curse) will release in August of 2020 and two full books will release in 2021! I hope you’ll love Mia Malone and the new Kitchen Witch series. This year Deep Fried Revenge (Farm to Fork) and Murder in Waiting (Tourist Trap) along with a few novellas will release. 

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Buy a copy of any pre-orders you can find for your favorite authors. Pre-orders tell the publisher if a book is going to be successful.  And often, new contracts are being decided on book 1’s numbers.

Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?
Readers are awesome – make sure you review. Publishers look at those too.  But for soon to be published authors, my one bit of advice is just keep trying. If something isn’t working, try something else. Don’t give up.

Cat Latimer and her writer’s retreat group go on a hiking trip—but a murderer has been lurking off the beaten path . . .

Cat’s sweetheart, Seth, is going all out on an outing into the local mountains—for the benefit of the writing group Cat’s hosting at her Colorado B&B. But when they try to identify some plant and animal life, they find death instead. The body belongs to a man with a gold claim a few miles away. Instead of striking it rich, he’s been struck down.

To his surprise, Seth recognizes the victim from his military days—and up to now believed he’d already died during his last tour of duty. Now Cat has to solve this mystery before the killer takes a hike . . .''
