Today's #Guest #Interview #romanticsuspense ALL THOSE MILES I WALKED by @ViviMackade

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…

I’m Viviana, from south Florida by way of England and, before that, Italy. I write contemporary suspense, but ready to dip my laptop into the Fantasy genre (this is kind of a newsflash).

-What kind of research do you do for a novel and how extensive do you get?
It depends of the subject. As a general rule, I research enough to get me started, then I research as I go. Which sometimes gets me stuck for a day or two because I’m nuts and I at that point I want to know EVERYTHING about a subject.

-Is there any other genre that you would love to try writing?  If so, what is it?
Fantasy. There. I said it. Which means when the third and final book in the Crescent Creek Series will be done (September–just saying) I’ll have to start writing this new thing buzzing in my head.

-Do you ever see yourself as the heroine/hero or find yourself relating to them when you write a story?
Oh, no! I’m nowhere near that interesting and/or gutsy. I’d be the lamest Heroine ever.

-What is your favorite method of in laptop, desktop, iPad or the old-fashioned pencil and paper?  And do you plot out your story or go with the flow of your muse?
It’s computer for the actual writing, but good ole’ pencil and paper to plot, note, and the such. I’m a hybrid, meaning I need to have a general idea about the book, for which I’ll plot, and then let the character move through it freely.

-When you need a break or some time off from the trials of being a writer, what can you be found doing?
Taking a walk with my earbuds blasting music. It used to be jogging, but I have MS and jogging doesn’t happen anymore. So, I walk.

-Share your favorites:
Favorite color – purple
Favorite dessert/snack – tiramisu (when I make it) / cinnamon rolls
Favorite Season – Spring when I was in Europe. Here in Florida, winter.
Favorite sad song – Tonight I’m Gonna Cry by Keith Urban
Favorite Romantic movie – Australia
Favorite Actor – Too many I like–I’m such a tramp….
Favorite way to relax – walking or pool

All Those Miles I Walked
by Viviana MacKade

At eighteen, DJ made a choice–her heart or her dreams. Neither was wrong, yet either would break her heart. She chose the world. Over a decade later, she returns to Crescent Creek and to the one regret she's ever had–Scott.

Scott’s always been steady as a rocky reef. He’d loved once and when she’d left, his strong heart had crumbled like a sandcastle. Now DJ is back, and Scott wants nothing to do with her. If only Eva, his and DJ’s old friend, didn’t need their help. Because of her, he’s stuck with DJ and he’d be damned, she still gets under his skin.

DJ is a free spirit who needs the road under her feet. Scott is a family man who wants to groom his roots. With danger on their doorstep and a baby to keep safe, how much are they willing to compromise for love?

Hi Viviana,

Thanks for the lovely interview! I love my computer but I'm a pen and paper author when it comes to plotting or just working out problems with a book, too. Love the sound of your book. Best of luck:)
