So you may already know that I'm a HUGE fan of Catherine Coulter and have been reading her work for years. In fact, when I was missing two books from her collection, Nemesis and Insidious, Awesome Anna from www.herdingcats-burningsoup.com
gave me both for Christmas!
Since then, I've added her latest FBI thriller called The Devil's Triangle to my bookcase. If suspense novels aren't your thing, though, Ms. Coulter has a ton of historical romance stories that are just as riveting.
Catherine Coulter is a New York Times bestselling author who was born in Texas on December 26, and has written over 75 novels. Her new book, Enigma, will be released on September 12, 2107 and I can't wait!
Here's a mini interview from this talented and prolific writer.
1. You've been writing for a lot of years specifically with historical romance novels. What made you switch to contemporary romantic suspense, and did you find it difficult?
Ms. Coulter: I didn't "switch" from historical romances to contemporary romantic suspense or the FBI suspense thriller series. For many years I've done one genre, then the other. I'm convinced this kept my brain unconstipated. Did I find it difficult? No, the two genres are very different thus it simply requires a different sort of focus.
2. You're on an island and can only take 3 things with you for 30 days. What would you bring?
3. That Pina Colada sounds awesome right about now! I fell in love with Savich and Sherlock in The Cove, and there's been no turning back. since then. The intensity and chemistry between these two make me come back again and again to experience their love story, but I'm also driven by the nail biting suspense and action. Do you actually know people like these two characters, and if not, how were they created?
Ms. Coulter: Alas, I do not know anyone like Savich and Sherlock. They are special. They are themselves. As is very common amongst writers, both Savich and Sherlock simply wrote themselves.
Ms. Coulter: Hummingbird cake.
5. Yummy! You've been blessed as a writer, but if you weren't an author, what would you be doing?
Ms. Coulter: A hairdresser, a cat walker, a speech writer (that's what I used to do on Wall Street).
