GIVEAWAY AND VISIT WITH SCOTTISH-MEDIEVAL AUTHOR SUE-ELLEN WELFONDER….

MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PRESENTS…..

SCOTTISH- MEDIEVAL AUTHOR SUE-ELLEN WELFONDER!!

What an honor and pleasure to have you with My Book Addiction and More today!!

Good morning Sue-Ellen!!

MBA&M: Please tell those readers who may not know you, a little about Sue-Ellen Welfonder?

 

SE:  Thank you so much for inviting me.  I’m delighted to be here.

For readers who don’t know me, here’s a mini-bio that sums me up pretty well.

Former flight attendant, Sue-Ellen Welfonder, has three grand passions: Scotland, the paranormal, and dogs.  All can be found in her romances, Scottish medievals and Scottish-set paranormals written as Allie Mackay.  Of Scottish descent, she lived in Europe for fifteen years and still makes frequent visits to Scotland.

I’ll add that I love all animals, not just dogs.  I hate shopping, rarely watch TV, and enjoy living quietly.

 

MBA&M: What is the allure of writing Scottish medieval romances?

SE:  Writing Scottish medieval romance is a natural extension of who I am.  I’m of Scottish descent, so was raised to love Scotland and appreciate the culture and tradition.  My passion for Scotland has always been there.  Likewise my interest in medieval history.  These passions were there long before I even considered writing and they will continue to be a part of life when I no longer write.

 Sue-Ellen’s  favorite place!

(from Sue-Ellen)

In general, I believe Scottish medieval romance appeals because of the beauty of the land, the deep and poignant history, and the proud, brave men and women who define Highland Scotland.  Few places offer so much to love, admire, and fire the blood.  All that combines to make Scottish romance popular with readers and the many authors who write it.  Even other genres, such as urban fantasy, often have a hero connected to the Highlands.  Everyone loves Highlanders.  I don’t need to mention the accent, the kilts, the pipes, the castles and mist, the heather and moors, etc, etc.  What’s not to love?

 

MBA&M: You also write as an alter ego, Allie Mackay, what are the challenges in writing with an alter ego?

 

SE:  The writing itself is a pleasure.  I love my Allie Mackay titles and have so much fun working on them.  The challenges are in the logistics.  It can be trying to juggle dual deadlines.  For example, it never fails that when I am in the worst deadline heat for one publisher, the other will send work that also needs doing yesterday.  Deadline looming on one book?  Be assured, major revisions for the other title will arrive and have the same due date as the other book’s deadline.  Or a deadline will fall on the release date of the other title, causing all kinds of fun with deadline work, plus release date promo work.

 

MBA&M: The third in the “Highland Warriors series” will soon be released, what is the release date,and what made you decide to write this series of three proud Highlanders and the three strong lasses that win their hearts?

 

SE:  Alasdair’s book, Seduction of a Highland Warrior, will be out later this year, available in Dec.  I decided to write my Highland Warriors trilogy because I’d written books for all the characters in my MacKenzie series and had no desire to write stories for Duncan and Sir M’s grandchildren.  I did not want to show either of these well-loved heroes as grandfathers, as would then have been necessary.  So I needed a new series.

Proud Highlanders and their deep love of the land always inspire me, so it wasn’t hard to come up with the trilogy.  And (my readers surely know this) I really love strong heroines.  I can’t abide weepy, sobbing women in real life and certainly don’t want to write them.  Readers can always expect to find heroines with backbone and spirit in my books.  I enjoy writing them that way and watching them come to life on the page as they stand tall and go after their dreams.

MBA&M: If you could step into one of your books which one would it be and why?

SE:  My Allie Mackay title, Some Like It Kilted.  It remains my personal favorite under both names.  The American heroine is the only heroine I’ve ever written who didn’t start out loving Scotland.  Changing her mind about a place she was determined to dislike was lots of fun.  Scotland won her heart big time (obviously), as did the hero, Bran.  He’s another reason I love this book so much.  He’s probably my favorite of all my heroes.  He’s big, gruff, and rough around the edges, has a heart of gold, the sexiest burr, and he loves dogs.  He also has a sense of humor and gives great neck nuzzles.  My kind of man.

Also, the book’s setting, Barra in the Hebrides, is one of my favorite places in Scotland.  So I would not mind slipping into the pages of Some Like It Kilted and ending up there for good, like the heroine, Mindy.

 

 

MBA&M: If you can, tell our readers about your next project(s)?

 

SE:  I am superstitious about talking about upcoming projects until close to the release date.  I will say that I am working on a new four-book series (Scottish medieval) that is a spin-off on my Highland Warriors trilogy.  These four books have the most roguish ‘bad boy’ heroes I have ever written.  They are handfuls and so much fun.  Likewise, I am just starting a new Allie Mackay series (Scottish-set paranormals) that blends old and new characters.  I really love these books.

Ardvreck Getting Closer Still!

(from Sue-Ellen)

MBA&M: We at My Book Addiction and More know you enjoy Scotland,when will you be going back?

SE:  Good question.  For years, I visited Scotland each autumn.  I’d love to fly over in mid-Oct.  But my little dog is now 13 ½ and he has a few health issues.  He’s also become needy in age.  I am no longer comfortable leaving him.  I didn’t travel during his first year as he needed me then, too.  Now, much as I love Scotland, I love my dog more.  So we’ll see.  I might pop over for a brief visit, but it all depends on how Em is doing at the time.

 

 Kilt Rock Skye!

(from Sue-Ellen)

MBA&M: Who would you say your hero/heroine is,be it person,animal,or character from one of your books? Why?

 

SE:  My greatest hero is Robert Bruce.  I’ve loved and admired him as far back as I can remember.  The reasons are obvious as he was Scotland’s greatest hero king.  Yet when you research him in depth, you discover the amazing man he was as well.  He truly was one of those larger-than-life people who stand heads and shoulders over the rest of us.  Men and women alike loved him, his enemies respected him, and his passion and devotion to Scotland still shines brightly today, many centuries later.  Some of my most memorable trips to Scotland have been those dedicated to visiting sites tied to his life and career.

 

MBA&M: Sue-Ellen, please tell our readers where to find you and where they can find your wonderful books?

  1. Hi Sue Ellen! You always have such great pictures, and Ardvreck is yet another example of one stealing my breath. I can just picture it in all its glory, proud sexy Highlanders walking around…=) Great way to start my day!

    Glad you can juggle writing under two names, very sure I couldn't. But I sure enjoy the end result!

    1. Hi Lexi! Thanks so much for looking in here. Isn't Ardvreck stunning? I have tons of gorgeous shots taken there. It's an incredible place, the ruin and the surrounding area. The ruin inspired the villain's castle in Until The Knight Comes.

      I love writing under both names. Yes, it can be a struggle at times because of the pressure, but the writing is always a joy. I love both sets of books, the medievals and my Scottish paranormals.

      Thanks so much for the kind words.

      1. I think I would LOVE ransacking your photo books =)

        And I love that you ave the two genre passions, a woman has to have her outlets.

  2. Good morning Sue-Ellen and we are so honored to have you here with us today. What a joy your books are to me and to Wendy. We love having you and Allie visit with us today.Thanks for sharing all you glorious pics and your knowlege of everything Scottish!

    AprilR

    1. The pleasure is all mine, April. Your blog has a special place in my heart. After all, it was WendyK (and you) along with Fatin, who first encouraged me to appear on blogs, remember? (I did quite well at being a hermit for years)

      Thanks so much for having me here today.

    1. Hi Rebekah! I'm so glad you love the photos. It's easy to get beautiful pictures in Scotland. Just point and click and that's it. Scotland truly is a land like no other. It takes my breath, too. Which is why I write Scottish-set books.

      Thanks so much for looking in today.

  3. Hello Sue-Ellen,

    Loved the preview of what's coming next – can you see me salavating – I cannot wait. Always love your insight interviews learn more about you every day.

    1. Hi Kathy! Thanks so much for looking in here. And for your kind words – I'm so glad you're excited about the new series. I'll share more about both series on Tartan Ink once I have the first covers and blurbs. I'm thrilled with both and enjoying the writing.

  4. I love the Scotland Highlands as the setting for the story. Of course, I always have a thing for the Scot man (especially the kilt). Looking forward in reading the story.

  5. Ah, Sue-Ellen, escaping into the pages of your books transports me to Scotland where I am able to enjoy the people, the land, and the food for a while. It also makes the yearning to actually travel to Scotland greater.

    Thank you so much for your stories! I have, am, and always will be a very devoted fan.

    Great interview, but then, I never expected anything less!

    (((HUGS)))

    1. Hi Kimberly! Thanks so much for dropping in here. And your good words. I appreciate them so much. I know you're a steadfast and loyal reader and love you bunches.

      (((HUGS))) back to you. 🙂

  6. Hi Sue Ellen, I have enjoyed your stories over the years. If you have only 1 week to spend it Scotland where would you recommend. What are your favorites spots?

    1. Hi Mary! Thanks so much for looking in and your kind words about my books. 1 week is really short for Scotland and choices would depend on if it's a first visit or one of many. For example, I would go to the far north (Sutherland) which is my favorite part of Scotland. Or the Inverness area and also the Cairngorms, areas I love dearly and where I have friends.

      For someone going for the first time, I'd suggest the classic tourist route through the Great Glen to see Glencoe, then Skye (where Eilean Donan Castle is – "Duncan's Eilean Creag Castle in my MacKenzie series) and then finish with either Gairloch or Inverness/Culloden and back south through Pitlochry.

      That's a good basic round-trip plan to get a good taste of the Western Highlands which is what most people enjoy seeing first.

      Whatever you do, you will LOVE every moment and have a wonderful time. Scotland really is magical.

  7. Hello Everyone… I am away to have lunch now and will then be working a bit. I'll look in later today to say hello to anyone who posts after this.

    For now, thank you so much for looking in here. I appreciate it so much.

    Good luck in the drawing.

    See you later!

  8. Thanks Sue Ellen for the great advice. Would love to spend longer and go to Ireland as well. Maybe I will win the lottery and be able to spend the fall in Scotland.

    1. My pleasure, Mary. Ireland is wonderful, too. I used to visit there lots when I lived overseas. But I love Scotland best. Fingers crossed re the lottery. Either way, you're in for a fabulous holiday. Every moment in Scotland is a dream.

    2. Mary… I forgot to mention that I have one Irish-set short story you might enjoy. It's called "The Seventh Sister" and is set in Howth, a little fishing village (that I really love) near Dublin.

      The story originally appeared in the Mammoth Book of Irish Romance. I now have it available as an e-novella for .99 cents. There are purchase links on my blog, Tartan Ink's, sidebar or on my website. The story has wonderful, authentic atmosphere. (and a very sexy hero)

  9. Sue-Ellen,

    I have just finished reading the Haunted warrior. I immediately fell in love with Graeme and Jock. Your books always make me yearn to visit Scotland again. Maybe, one day before my time on Earth is up. Please do not ever stop writing your wonderful books.

    1. Hi Marilyn! Thank you so much for looking in today. I appreciate it. I am so glad you enjoyed Haunted Warrior. Especially Graeme and Jock. (to those who don't know.. Jock is the hero's dog, and pretty special)

      I am betting you'll make it back to Scotland. And thank you so much for your kind words. Knowing how long you've been reading my books, that's so lovely to hear. I am presently busy writing lots more with two new series, so I will be around a while. 🙂

  10. Hi Sue-Ellen, thank you for taking the time to be interviewed here and sharing your pictures. Please do not include me in the drawing as I’ve already lucked out! ^_~

    Hope you get a chance to go back to Scotland again without having to worry about Em. How else will we either get good travel trips or live vicariously? *evil grin*

    1. Hi AutumnFire! Thanks so much for looking in here today. I appreciate the hello. 🙂

      Scotland… big sigh. I really would love to pop over in the late autumn, even if only for a quickie visit. It all depends on my little Em. He comes first these days and I've been going over regularly for so many years. I'm presently living on memories. But I am looking forward to getting back, yes.

  11. Hi Sue-Ellen,
    You know I love you and I still say you need to publish all those great images you have!!!!

    I’m so sorry you are worrying about Em! Sending love and good thoughts to both of you.

    hugs,
    WendyK

    1. The feeling is mutual, WendyK. You know that. 🙂

      I do fret about Em. 13 1/2 is up there for a dog, even a little one. Obviously, I am hoping to have him with me for as long as possible. As said, much as I love Scotland, I love him more. He comes first.

  12. Sue Ellen. I simply LOVE your books, and wish you could write faster!!(LoL JUST KIDDING!!). I just wait for a new story to come out (makes it more enjoyable)

    I want you to be my scotish guide some day. I want to see the 'real' Scotland, not the 'touristy' part. I want to find my own castle and highlander! Oh, be still my heart!!! I figure in a few years, I'll have enough saved. Of coarse, then I'll be too old, no highlander in his right mind would dare give me a second look, so I'll see him in my dreams. Sigh!!

    So sorry about Em. I just came back from the vet with my lab Last checkup from a torn ACL surgery. He's doing GREAT! The vet is even surprised how well he did (he's my little ..120# …baby). I sat up nights with him after his surgery, lifted and held his butt so he could pee, and made special meals so he would heal faster. (same as I do for my family) Hope and prayers for Em's special healing. Hugs & Rainbows, Wendy

    1. Hi Wendy! Thanks so much for looking in. Your enthusiasm for my books brightens my day. Thank you so much. I wish I could write faster, too.

      Understand your wish to see the 'real' Scotland. That's the part I love so much – as you'll know from my books, especially the Allie Mackay titles. Of course, ALL Scotland is wonderful. It's just really special to get off the beaten track and be alone in a wild and place. Those are the places that grip the most, in my heart anyway.

      I might do tours someday. It's a thought if ever deadlines allow. Coming from the airlines, I still have contacts in the travel industry. Both here and in Scotland. So maybe someday. They'd be small, intimate tours to very special places.

      Thanks re Em. He's doing pretty good for his age on the whole. Just needs watching and suffers separation anxiety (he likes to be attached to my hip). Great news on your Lab. It's always such a joy to hear when a pet heals so well. Give him some loving from me, please.

  13. Hi Sue-Ellen,

    Greetings from western Canada. I absolutely LOVE all your books, especially the Scottish paranormals your write under the name Allie Mackay.

    I, too, grew up appreciating all things Scottish because of my ancestry. And, while I have not been back to the highlands in a very long time, your novels take me back to many of my favourite places in my mind. Thank you.

    I look forward to reading lots more from you.

    Have a great day and blessings for a happy Easter.

    Laureta

    1. Hi Laureta! Thank you so much for stopping by. I love hearing from Canadian readers. I used to spend a lot of time in BC.. Vancouver and on Vancouver Island. Such beautiful country.

      I'm not surprised you have Scottish blood. So many Scots went to Canada. I'm so glad you've been over and hope you get back soon. I know the ache-in-the-soul to be there. Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so glad my books bring back fond memories for you.

      I wish you a lovely Easter holiday, too. 🙂

  14. it's very Beautiful over there wish I could see the country side and there old castles.would be so cool! Love Highlander Books can't wait to read this one.

    1. Hi Stacey! Thanks so much for looking in. You'd love Scotland. It really is as beautiful as you imagine. More so. Pure magic. I'm so glad you enjoy Highlander books and hope you'll like Haunted Warrior.

  15. Sounds like my kind of book! I love the supernatural. Enter me please and thanks for the giveaway.

    1. Hi Martha! Thanks for stopping by. I love the supernatural, too. It's fun to blend a magical setting like Scotland with a few paranormal elements. In a land so rich in myth and lore, it all comes together well. I hope you'll enjoy Haunted Warrior.

  16. Beautiful pictures. I've always wanted to see Scotland to see where my ancestors are from. This book sounds intriguing. Can't wait to read it.

    Joanne B

    1. Hi Joanne! Thanks for looking in. I'm so glad you enjoyed the pictures. It's always so hard to decide which ones to post. I hope you do get to Scotland. Having Scottish ancestry, you'll feel the pull always. Only bad thing about going is the terrible wrench of having to leave.

      I hope you'll enjoy Haunted Warrior.

  17. Good Morning Sue-Ellen. What beautiful pictures! I’m so glad to see this book getting more attention. Ladies if you have not read this one go get it now! It is a wonderful story.

    1. Hey, Blog Partner! Thanks so much for looking in here. Aren't the photos gorgeous? It's always hard to choose which Scotland pix to share. They're all beautiful.

      Thanks for the good words about Haunted Warrior. I appreciate it. 🙂

  18. Love to visit Scotland some day, enjoy your many pictures that you post on your site and your stories over the years have been great…Have a great Easter!

    1. Hi Suzy! Thanks so much for dropping in. I appreciate your kind words about my Scotland photos and the books. I'm so glad you enjoy both. I don't know if you follow my blog, Tartan Ink, regularly, but I often post my Scotland pictures on there. Especially around releases, to share the special places that inspired the book. I did tons of photo posts for Haunted Warrior, for example.

      I'm wishing you a wonderful Easter Weekend, too. 🙂

  19. Hi Sue-Ellen, I loved Hunted Warrior. I don't follow too many blogs, but I try to follow yours! Haven't talked to you in a long while.

    Is Hunted Warrior, the last of this series? What's coming next? Have a great Easter! Hugs, Lorraine ( from Phoenix, AZ)

    1. Hi Lorraine! It's good to see you in here. Thanks so much for looking in. I'm so glad you follow Tartan Ink. I'm around, just been buried under endless deadlines. Hopefully we can chat again soon.

      It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed Haunted Warrior. I'm so glad. Haunted Warrior is a stand-alone title, although characters in the story will reappear in the new Allie Mackay series. Wee Hughie, for example, is in all the Allie Mackay books and will continue to be. The new series is a melding of new and older characters (from the early titles). The series has a phenomenal (Scottish, of course) setting that I don't yet want to name. The books will also take readers on visits back to Oban and Ravenscraig Castle of the earliest Allie Mackay books. It's a wonderfully fun new series.

  20. All I can say is that I seem to love anything Highlander and your books look like something I would love to read. And what a gorgeous cover!

    catslady5(at)aol.com

    1. Hi Catslady! Thanks so much for looking in here. I love all things Highland, too. I hope you'll enjoy my books. The cover is gorgeous, isn't it? The kilt isn't quite correct, but beautiful all the same.

  21. I love reading Sue Ellen's books. They take me back to a time that I truly believe I should have lived in. I love reading about the culture and and life back then. It's my biggest escape. The hot heroes are great too. LOL

    1. Hi Linda! Thanks so much for looking in today. We must be soul-sisters. I, too, think I was born in the wrong time and place. No kidding! Thank you so much for the good words about my books.

  22. I enjoyed the interview and I'm looking forward to reading another great Allie MacKay book. Haunted Warrior sounds fantastic.

    Barbed1951 at aol dot com

    1. Hi Barbara! Thanks so much for dropping in here. It's so nice to see that you enjoy my Allie Mackay titles. I love these books and have so much fun writing them. I hope you'll like Haunted Warrior.

  23. I love anything Sue-Ellen writes. If she decides to do a telephone book, I am ready for that too. I already have "Haunted' and I am loving reading it and sad that my life is keeping me from having more reading time, right now.. I am sorry that Em is not feeling well. Hugs to you both. Thank you to MBA & M for hosting, my favorite author. Happy weekend to you all. Helen in Ark.

    1. Oh, my, Helen.. you've really made me smile tonight. The telephone book, h'mmm? Bless you for your kind words and enthusiasm. I appreciate it so much. And I'm delighted you're enjoying Haunted Warrior so much. I hope things settle down for you soon. Em is doing pretty good, actually. He's just getting old and so is very clingy and needs meds and special diet for a digestive issue. I am so hoping he'll be with me a good long while yet, even if that means no or very little travel. He rules my world as I have said in my acknowledgments. 😉

  24. Hello Sue-Ellen, Thanks so much for all the great writing! I appreciate so many of the books, and also your subject of Scotland.

    1. Hi Debra! Thank you so much for stopping by to say hello. I appreciate it. And your kind words. I'm so glad you enjoy my books. And you know.. I love talking about Scotland.

      Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Betty! Thank you so much for looking in here. I really appreciate it. I love visiting this blog. They've been very good to me over the years. I'm glad you enjoyed this one.

      Have a great weekend. 🙂

  25. Hi Sue-Ellen – I always enjoy reading your comments & learning a little bit more about your books. Hi to Em – tell him looks really good for his age.

    1. Hi Diane! Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂 I'm so glad you enjoyed the post. They asked some excellent questions, didn't they? I will pass on your praise to Em. He loves compliments. He does look good for his age. He's pretty robust, too. Still loves his walks and such. He just has the years on him and a few digestive issues that need monitoring. And he is very needy. He now cries and howls if I leave him alone more than a few hours, hence not feeling okay with travel anymore. He matters most to me.

  26. Hi Sue-Ellen and April!

    Just wanted to say "howdy" to you, what a wonderful interview!

    Great pictures, as always. 😀

    Give Em a big hug from me and Sadie!

    Please do not enter me in contest. 🙂

    I'll have to agree with Kathy.

    If you haven't read this book, you must! 🙂

    Have a great day!

    1. Hi Dalila, Thank you so much for stopping in tonight. I appreciate the "howdy." 🙂 I'm glad you enjoyed the Q&As and the pix. I will definitely pass on the loving to Em. Please give ours back to dear Sadie. (Em loves the ladies)

      Thanks so much for your kind words about Haunted Warrior. 🙂

      Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Debbie! I love seeing readers loving Highland romances. I hope you'll enjoy Haunted Warrior. And I'm so glad you love the pictures. I don't know if you follow my blog, Tartan Ink, but I often share stunning Scotland photos there. I hope you get there.. it really is a magical place.

  27. Hi Everyone…

    It's supper time here, so I'm away for a while. I'll look in later tonight to say hello to anyone else who stops by. For now, thank you so much for making my day here so special. I've had a great time.

    See you later tonight! Till then, have fun in here. 🙂

  28. Popped in to give a huge wave and smile 😀

    I cannot wait for those bad boys you spoke of !

    This was a great interview and as always, I love the pictures you added. You can take me away with your words and the pictures are just icing on the cake.

    1. Hi Leah! Thank you so much for visiting me here. I really appreciate it. And bless you for your enthusiasm for my upcoming 4-book series. The heroes really are big, bad, and dangerous. True rascals. I'm excited to be writing these new Highlanders.

      So glad you enjoyed the interview and pictures.

      🙂

  29. Just stopping by to say Hello, Sue-Ellen. I loved your post today – I always find out just a little bit more about you and your love for Scotland. And, as usual, the pictures are wonderful!! Sorry to hear about Em, too. Please don't enter me in the contest as I already have my copy of Haunted Warrior.

    1. Hi Karen! Thanks so much for looking in here. I really appreciate it. I'm so glad you enjoyed the Q&As and the pictures. Scotland is breathtaking, isn't it?

      Em is okay. I think he'll be with me a good while yet. He's just a little old man now and so needs me near him. He doesn't have anything 'bad.' Thank goodness. Just needs watching and the 'comfort' of no stress in his world.

  30. Hello SE

    I just wanted to pop in and say hello, great interview. Don't enter me as I already own the book. Love you SE!

    Z

  31. HJello again, Everyone!

    It's late on the east coast. Cuddle time with my little Em. (my dog) I'll look again later, before I go to bed, so no one is missed.

    For now.. thank you so much to everyone who visited me today. You've been great and really made this a fun day. Thank you!

    April and WendyK, thanks so much for inviting me to be here. It's always a pleasure.

    Have a great weekend, all.

    (I will look in again later..)

  32. Thank you for taking the time to share with us today. I have been loving the premise of Haunted Warrior for some time and to me it sounds like the perfect rainy day read! I do not often admit to envy, but you photos certainly had me wishing I was there to enjoy that awesomeness with you.

  33. Thank you for the interview. I'll be looking for a copy of Some Like It Kilted now, Mindy's story sounds like fun.

  34. Hi Sue-Ellen,

    I agree – what's not to love? I enjoyed the interview thank you. I dream of visiting Scotland one day. I think I fell in love with Robert the Bruce watching BRAVEHEART.

    Cheers!!

  35. Well hang, a day late….

    Enjoyed the interview & looking forward to those new books, esp. the Allie!
