Author Viviana MacKade stops by today! Join us to learn more about this author #RB4U #Romance

Welcome to Romance Books 4 Us, a place for all romance and all genres. We’re very happy to have you here with us today. First, tell us a little bit about yourself…
Hi all, and thank you for having me. I'm Viviana, or Vivi, or V (but that's only for my mom). I am Italian, adopted by the Sunshine State a few years back by-way of England. I've been a lawyer, a teacher, and currently trying to survive being a mom and a writer. I am addicted to my blog. And chocolate. And the beach. And my husband. And my son's dimple. And books.

~ Do real life events find their way into your stories?
Not really. The stories are their own, with their events. It would feel like forcing something into the story that doesn't belong.

~ Do you ever mimic family members or people you know when you choose characters?
No, for the same reason of why I don't use 'my' events. It would be a disrespect to both the character and the person I 'used'.

~ Do you find yourself going back to the same inspiration for each story or is it always something different?
It's always different. It can be the line of a song, something I read on the paper, something I see. Inspiration comes in different size and shape, and I learned to recognize it and catch it.

~ When do you write?  Early morning? During the day sometime or all day?  After the kids go to bed?
Right now, I write in the mornings. My son goes to daycare and I work. Things will chance in August, when he start vpk and will be away the whole day. I'll have the entire day then, and I have BIG plans!

~ Do you have a special place you like to do your writing? Such as an office, a spare room, the dining room table, your couch?
Right now, I'm writing from the College library because it's close to my son's school and it minimizes the traveling time. But when he'll be in vpk I'll steal the nook he has in his bedroom and make it mine. *whispering* Please don't tell him, he still doesn't know he's gonna have a roommate.

~ Share your favorites:
Favorite color – Lavander
Favorite Season – Here in FL, winter. Before that, spring.
Favorite sad song – Tonight I Wanna Cry by Keith Urban
Favorite Romantic movie – Notting Hill, Love Actually, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days and Dirty Dancing.
Favorite way to relax – Music at the beach.

~ What is your ideal romantic vacation?
Anything that involves little clothes (I don't mean a bikini. I mean little clothes) and my husband.

Where can our readers find you

Is there an upcoming or current release you would like to share with us today and where can we find it.
I have an entire Series that just got out!
I just re-released both She Came With The Tide, a Crescent Creek Novella (0.5), and All Those Miles I Walked (Crescent Creek 1). I also released Painted Love in the Lawbreakers Collection, which is the second int the Crescent Creek Series. You can find all on Amazon.
Here's the blurb for Painted Love.
Thou shalt not steal.
Oh, but Florence had, and would do so one last time.
Ten pieces her grandfather painted for her because he loved her.
Ten pieces her mother lost, along with anything else, for loving the wrong man.
She couldn’t get back everything he’d wasted away, but she’d be damned if she’d give up those paintings. 

Easy and genuine, Rhett loves his life–his family, his market, his town. Until he meets a British woman with grey eyes and a cute little smile. The woman he’s been waiting for.
The thing is, to love her is easy, but can he trust her?

When Rhett pushes to uncover her agenda, Flo knows she will lose something–the man she loves or what she’d been fighting for years.
Which road will she choose?
