MBA&M: Tell our readers a few tidbits about R.C. Ryan?


R.C.: It would be fun to say that I live in a seaside villa in the Mediterranean with my much-younger lover.  But it would be a lie.


R. C. Ryan married her childhood sweetheart (we met in first grade).  We’re the parents of five, and we live beside a pond in Michigan amid rolling hills that were once an apple orchard, where coyotes and deer and foxes roam.  (but no buffalo)

MBA&M: What do you think the appeal of Western Romance is to readers?


R.C.: It’s that tough Alpha male.  We all yearn for the rugged individual who struggles against the land, the forces of nature, and the wild yearning of his heart, before he meets his one true love.


MBA&M: What kind of research went into writing “Quinn”?


R.C.: Research on Wyoming, on wolves in Wyoming, on modern ranching, calving season in springtime.  Thank heaven for the Internet.  Instead of spending days at the library, I’m able to call it all up on my computer screen in minutes.

MBA&M:  How many books will be in this series?


R.C.: QUINN is Book 1 of a 3-Book series.  JOSH is book 2 due in October and JAKE in March, 2013.

MBA&M:  If you could be a character in “Quinn” which character would you be?Why?


R.C.: All of them.  While I’m writing my books, I become every character.  I have to love the good guys and get inside the mind of the bad guys. 


But if I had to choose one, I guess I’d have to be Quinn.  I love the romance of tracking my own wolf pack, sleeping under the stars, experiencing with them the life-cycle of birth, death, the hunt.  I’m sure it’s much more romantic to think about it than it would be to live it, but it just touches a chord in me.

ISBN-13: 978-1455502455

A WYOMING SKY NOVEL The Truth Can Be an Irresistible Temptation . . . As a young boy, Quinn Conway was shattered by his mother’s mysterious disappearance. Today, as the oldest of the Conway brothers, his only concern is protecting his family and their ranch. One look at beautiful, strong-willed Cheyenne O’Brien tells him she’s also no stranger to tragedy. A series of increasingly dangerous “accidents” are plaguing her and her land, and Quinn can’t stand idly by while a woman is in danger. Fiercely independent, Cheyenne isn’t one to lean on others, yet she can’t deny her attraction to the rugged rancher offering help. … more



MBA&M:  Please give our readers a few tidbits about Katie Lane? 

 KATIE: I am addicted to cheeseburgers.  I sleep with ear plugs because Hubba snores like a saw mill.  You can catch me singing at the top of my lungs when sitting at a stoplight.

MBA&M: What if anything made you decide to write Western Romance? 

KATIE: I’ve always thought cowboys were sexy.  I think it’s the hat.  Or maybe the wranglers.  Or maybe the boots.   Or maybe the cocky swagger.  Or maybe . . .

MBA&M: What where the challenges in writing CATCH ME A COWBOY? 

KATIE: Making sure that Billy “Bubba” Wilkes wasn’t too much of a good ol’ boy.  He can come up with some pretty obnoxious pick up lines.  “Sure you don’t want a little Bubba lovin’?  How about a tour of Wilkesville?”

MBA&M: Who is your favorite character in CATCH ME A COWBOY?Why? 

 KATIE:I have to choose?  I love both my heroine and hero.  Shirlene is this charismatic, fun woman I would love to have as a friend.  Billy has this country charm that’s addictive.   

MBA&M: When writing how do you determine who will be your hero/heroine/villian. Do they make themselves known from the beginning or as you write? 

 KATIE: I always have an idea of who my heroine and hero will be, but they become more vivid as I write.  Sometimes I’m surprised at how their personalities develop.
