Interview with Deb Julienne: part of the LOVE ONBOARD! Blog Tour

Why did you choose to write in your particular field or genre? 

Life is…well Life. Whether it’s work, kids, family, whatever…I love writing romantic comedies and cowboys, they’re my escape from the world around me. I can create a handsome cowboy or comical situations, I can create characters to get even with, I can fall in love every single day and never get tired of it. I love to think of a character, then search of a picture to match how I see them…when I find the right picture the story practically writes itself.

What do you like to read in your free time?

Janet Evanovich is probably my #1 favorite…I swear she wrote Stephanie after following me, I just wish I had a Ranger and Morelli to make life more interesting.

Greg Iles is another but totally opposite. I love his stories, his characters, and the southern locations. If you haven’t read him, it’s a must.

What projects are you working on at the present?

I’m working on book 4 of the Twisted Sisters Club, revision Jill’s story. I’m working on a novella for a box set to be released in July. It’s the prequel to the woman who will be the Heroine in Dane Bronco’s story. And then I’ll be writing Dane’s story for The Bronco Brother’s series.

What do your plans for future projects include?

After the above, I still have to finish off that cowboy series with: Clayton, Quinton, Virgil, Wyatt, Logan, and Darcy. I just love this family!

FUN STUFF

Do you have any strange writing habits (like standing on your head or writing in the shower)? 

Sort of…when I’m stuck on where to take a story or create chaos. I read what I’ve written then go to sleep. 99 times out of 100, I’ll dream about it and have my answer in the morning. I love when this happens.

What is your go-to method for getting rid of hiccups? 

I drink from the back side of a glass, upside down. Hold a glass of water, put your mouth on the far side, bend your head over and take sever swallows. It’s awkward at first but works every time.

Do you have a favorite Girl Scout Cookie?

Peanut Butter

This or That?

Dogs or Cats? Dogs

Tea or Coffee? COFFEE, IV STAT

Winter or Summer? Both

TexMex or Italian? Italian

Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate

Vintage or New? Vintage

Roller Coaster or Ferris Wheel? Ferris Wheel

Pirated Pixie by Shea McMaster – Irene Lundquist has no plans for romance while on the cruise with her jilted best friend and his groomsmen. She’s surprised when Dutch Marshal’s good looks and charm do nothing to help her relax, and everything to steal her heart. For Dutch, things get complicated when the best man in charge of the group plans is a gorgeous pixie-sized redhead woman who lights his fire. Can either of them make it through the singles cruise and remain single, or will they get the happily ever after neither of them was looking for?

Shea McMaster lives for traditional romance. Born in New Orleans, raised in California, Shea got moved to Alaska in 1977, where she attended high school before running back to California to get her English degree from Mills College. Alas, once back home she met and fell in love with her own forever true hero, a born and raised Alaska man. Since then she’s had a love-hate relationship with America’s largest state.

With her one and only son grown and on his own, Shea is fortunate to spend her days playing with the furry child, and engaged in daydreaming, turning those dreams into romantic novels and novellas featuring damsels in distress rescued by their own brains and hunky heroes. She also writes under the steamy romances under the name Morgan O’Reilly.

Her parents started reading to Ellen and her siblings at a very young age. They quickly tired of books for younger children and turned to chapter books like Tarzan, The Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings forging Ellen’s love for reading.

Ellen started writing in Junior High with an assignment from her computer writing teacher. Her first attempt at a modern day Old Yeller crossover with NYPD Blue was “awful”, but that didn’t stop the inspiration from flowing. Ellen now writes contemporary romance novels with a realistic twist to them. If you’re looking for fairy tales, you won’t find them here as her characters deal with real life issues. She loves helping people with their writing, paying forward the help that she has received allowing her to be where she is today.
