Today we welcome Kathy Harris to my blog. Thanks for stopping by, Kathy! Tell us about the book – a brief blurb:
Deadly Commitment is an inspirational romantic suspense set in Nashville. It’s also the first book in a new series from New Hope Publishers.
Danni Kemp fears she’s being stalked—but the truth is much more deadly. Her fiancé, Robert Evans, has a dangerous secret, and the homeless man who is stalking her, Caleb Samuels, may prove to be her only escape from the seedy, underground world of illicit drugs that has intruded upon her life. Will Danni discover in time that neither Rob nor Caleb are who they appear to be, and the one person she fears most may be the one person she needs to trust?
Are any experiences in Deadly Commitment based on personal experiences?
Not directly, but the book is set in the middle of my ordinary life in Nashville, Tennessee. I had a great time doing “research” and learning more about my hometown.
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in Deadly Commitment?
That’s an interesting question. I wouldn’t change the story but, like most writers, I would love the chance to rewrite it. Ha.
What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Balancing the romance, suspense, and faith elements.
Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
This is my first romantic suspense, and I learned that I really like writing in this genre. It’s fun… and challenging.
Did you have to travel much for research for Deadly Commitment?
Not at all. Most of the story is set in Nashville. The rest was set on the road and/or on the tour bus, which is second nature to me because I’ve worked in the entertainment industry for several decades.
Do you foresee any more stories for this family of characters?
Deadly Commitment is the first book in The Deadly Secrets series, but each book will be a standalone with a unique hero and heroine. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is the common denominator in each story.
Who was your favorite character in Deadly Commitment?
I’m not sure I can pick a favorite, because Caleb Samuels is a strong hero and Danni Kemp has an interesting character arc. Also, several of the secondary characters (Jaycee, Jamie, and even Sophie) play an important role in the story. I look forward to learning who readers will pick as their favorite character!
