What was your inspiration for Love on the Slopes?
My kids and I LOVE to go skiing in the winter time and the storyline came
to me when we were hitting the slopes. When it came to the location,
however, it just wasn’t clicking until we happened to pay a visit
to Jackson Hole Wyoming for vacation. It was absolutely beautiful! I simply
fell in love with the place and knew that was where the Hartley family were
meant to be. If you haven’t been, I strongly encourage you to go for a
What’s your favorite thing about being a writer?
Besides the joy of having the option to kill off people you don’t like? lol
Seriously though, I love to write. Creating stories has always been a
passion of mine since I was a little girl, so becoming a writer in my adult
years was an easy fit.
Who inspired you to write?
My mom inspired me to be the avid reader I still am today, and with all
those Harlequins and Danielle Steele’s came the imagination to create my
own stories, so I would have to say my mother.
Have you always wanted to be a writer?
Haha, that’s an easy one. YES!
Are there any situation(s) in any of your books you regret?
When I published my first book I was pretty green and make quite a few
mistakes I’ve since learned from. As to any situations IN my books that I
regret? Not a one!
What’s the oddest thing you had to research for your writing?
Pap smears lol In Deadly Science the doctor was illegally upcharging
laboratory testing through pap smears so I had to learn my ins and outs, so
What book are you currently reading?
Nothing. Why, do you have a recommendation? 😉
Can you share with us what you’re working on right now?
Oh how I WISH I could, but it’s a super secret project that’s launching
very SOON, and one I cannot reveal. Sorry! But keep an eye on my facebook
page for updates!!
Is there anything else we should know about you?
That I’m a chocolate loving, coffee drinking enthusiast who adores my
husband and our two children, and there isn’t anywhere in life I would
rather be than where I’m at right now.
**Side Note…I recommended to her Rainbow Rowell to read.**
After surviving a disastrous marriage, Dominic DeRenzi returns to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, hoping to make a fresh start for him and his six year old son by purchasing the old ski lodge. Until a chance encounter with Jessa Hartley throws his well laid plans off track. The once innocent girl from his childhood has grown into the beautiful woman he always knew she would become, and he is painfully reminded of the night he over stepped his bounds and kissed her. Then broke her heart by sending her away.
Rekindling the flames of their past isn’t part of the plan, yet Dominic and Jessa soon find they’re helpless to stop the fire that burns brightly between them. He broke her heart the first time he left, but can he make her see this time around he’s here to stay?
Sarah’s Review: I absolutely adored this cute love story! I personally love it when two people
from the past still show interest in one another. I liked how they were trying
to play it off but couldn’t do it anymore. It was sweet how it all finally came
know you’re going to love the story just from that! Dominic is a great dad to
Dante. I hope to see more of this relationship in the next books.
getting confused a little with the sibling’s names all starting with a “J” but
once I read more of the series I’m sure I won’t have a problem keeping up with
it kept my attention and left me wanting for more.
