FoX Friday with Katie Kenyhercz!

Hey, my lovelies! Today, we welcome Katie Kenyhercz back to FoX Friday with her upcoming release, Vegas Baby, out May 31st. Before we dive into Miranda’s story, let’s learn a little more about Katie!

Did you always want to be a writer? If not, what else did you want to do?

Once upon a time, I wanted to be a doctor (because Dana Scully). These days, when I’m not writing I’m teaching college English. One day I hope to score a creative writing class!

How do you celebrate each book release?

There is always cake. When I can manage it, there is cake with my book cover on it and I also have a cyber party in my Las Vegas Sinners Facebook group!

Ha! There’s always time for cake. What advice would you give to another author who’s struggling with writer’s block?

Plot. Every time I hit a block it’s because I’m not 100% clear on where the book goes from there. If I plot out the rest of the book or at least the next few scenes, the block is gone. If you keep hitting blocks, it might be because you’ve gone wrong somewhere, and subconsciously you know it. Look at the book so far and ask if you’re being true to your characters. Would they do those things? Say those things? If not, re-write, then move forward.

Great advice! What inspired you to write your latest release?

Vegas Baby is the first book in the Lady Sinners spinoff series from my Las Vegas Sinners series.  I knew I wanted to give the Sinners’ dance team their own books, and it made sense to make Ben Collier (an injured, ex-Sinners player) the first hero. Readers had said they wanted to know what happened to him at the end of Fair Trade. Now they can find out!

Sweet! If you could date the hero from one of your books, who would it be and why?

This is hard! Carter Phlynn from On the Fly because he knows what he wants and goes for it and doesn’t give up on the woman he loves. Dylan Cole from Home Ice because he’s super sweet, kind and thoughtful. And Grayson Gunn from Fair Trade because he’s been around the block, has learned a lot, and is unwaveringly loyal and dedicated.

Hey, no need to choose. Right? What do you do in your downtime?

I hang with the hubby and our grumpy cat, Motley. We love watching movies and going for walks in the park. It’s warming up in Ohio, and I’ll be skating soon, too!

Cool! What would the title of the movie about your life, and what would it be rated? (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17)?

Semi-Charmed Life mostly PG-13 and sometimes R

Haha! So, what can readers expect from you next?

Before I start Vegas Girl, the next book in the Lady Sinners series, I’ll be writing one book, Found on Anna Maria Island, in a sports romance trilogy called Sullivan’s Sons. The heroes are a baseball player, football player, and hockey player respectively. Their parents gave up their sister when she was born and never told the boys until the first book starts, and the family searches for the long-lost girl. Along the way, each brother finds his soul mate. In my book, hockey player Lucas unknowingly falls for the biological daughter of his sister’s adopted parents. Intrigue, right?! Look for this trilogy in early 2018 from me, Elley Arden, and Kristina Knight!

As captain of the dance team for the NHL’s Las Vegas Sinners, it’s Miranda Evans’ job to make sure a quality product goes on the ice between periods whether it’s choreographed numbers or short scrimmages, but she’s not blind. Her squad gets eye rolls and applause in equal measure. The chance to start a community intramural hockey league is her shot at legitimizing the Lady Sinners, but there’s a catch. To maximize good press, Miranda has to work with a retired Sinner who’s shut himself off from everyone in the organization. He’s stubborn, broken, and unwilling to say the least, but in unguarded moments she can see the man underneath, and he might just be worth fighting for.

Ben Collier’s NHL career came to a crashing halt a little over a year ago when a monster hit paralyzed him from the waist down. Feeling is coming back at a mind-numbingly slow pace. He’s attacking rehab to the point of obsession. All he wants is to be left alone to focus on his three goals: walk, skate, play hockey. He absolutely doesn’t need the distraction of the beautiful cheerleader who won’t give him a moment’s peace, but her optimism rubs off when he’s not looking. Despite himself, the glass is starting to look half full for the first time since his injury. And that’s terrifying. To love something means to accept the risk of losing it, and he’s not sure he can do that again.

You can pre-order VEGAS BABY at Amazon for only 99 cents!
