Welcome, Niecey Roy!

1 Feb

I’m brewing up an extra large pot of coffee this morning! Very good friend and fellow author, Niecey Roy, is stopping by to talk writing and share the fantastic news about her debut contemporary romance, FENDER BENDER BLUES. Like the fabulous characters she writes, Niecey is bursting with spunky, addictive energy. She makes me laugh, keeps me sane, and would totally sneak out in the middle of the night to TP entire neighborhoods with me!

ImageWelcome, Niecey! Congratulations on your brand new release!!

 Niecey: I’m so excited to be here today! Thanks so much for having me!

 Tell us a little bit about yourself. What are your passions?

 First, I’m a book lover…obviously 😉 I started reading at a really young age and that was the beginning of my ability to block out people around me. It annoys the hell out of my husband, but hey, when a book is good, distractions are evil!

 I also love to cook. I grew up with a Polish grandma who spent most of her time singing her face off in the kitchen, and I have a Filipino mother who loves to feed me whenever she comes to visit.  If you visit my blog, you’ll see some of the fun recipes I’ve shared. I promise there will be more to come.

When did you catch the writing bug?

 I realized about the third grade that I wanted to write my own books. I started writing short stories, I wrote poetry, and I kept reading anything I could get my hands on. I love the feeling that I get when I can put my thoughts on paper, and I don’t think that feeling or need to write will ever go away. Some people fix cars, some people make paper airplanes (fun!), and I write 😉

Your love of writing really shines through in the vibrant personalities you’ve crafted in Fender Bender Blues. Which character was your favorite to write?

 Of course, my very favorite character is Rachel, the female lead in Fender Bender Blues. But I really, really love Rach’s dad, Glen. There’s a bit of my own dad in him (ssshhh!!!), but it’s his love of his car that really makes him endearing. I grew up with a dad like that. After reading the book, write me a message on my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/NieceyRoyRomanceAuthor and let me know if you liked Glen, as well, or who your favorite character in Fender Bender Blues is.

 What are you reading right now?

 I’m reading How Hard Can It Be? by Robyn Peterman. I’m only a chapter into it and it’s hilarious!

What do you have planned next?

 I’m working on a humorous contemporary romance (I still prefer to say romantic comedy instead!), currently titled Woes of the Fabricated Relationship.

Thanks so much for having me, Donna! This was fun 😉 Here’s a blurb and excerpt of Fender Bender Blues. Hope you enjoy it!

ImageBLURB:

 Her life took a wrong turn. He’s driven by success. They didn’t count on crashing into love…

Rachel Bennett loved her job until the day she finds herself doubting her choices.  Now she’s hunting for a new career, but starting over isn’t easy.  Her plan is simple—no distractions until she finds her dream job.  She didn’t plan on fate throwing her a curveball in the form of a fender bender with a sexy guy in an expensive suit.

Craig Larsen is a wealthy, successful business owner with a plan of his own: survive his current PR nightmare and stay away from his overly determined ex-girlfriend.  His need for control and personal success is turned upside down when he meets Rach, a sassy redhead who can’t drive.

Soon they find themselves battling with Rach’s grumpy old neighbor, toilet-papering the trees of a high school nemesis, and fighting over the last slice of pizza.  Can two very different people plus one fender bender equal a chance at forever?

EXCERPT:

“Now what?”

“Nothing.” Rach sniffed.

Craig shifted to eye her warily. “Since when do you answer me with single words?”

“Since I decided I’m not talking to you,” she answered with a shrug, crumpling up the white paper wrapper from her sub.

Craig leaned his face in close to her neck and enjoyed the startled jerk of her shoulders. Her eyes opened wide in surprise. His breath shifted a few strands of hair at the nape of her neck as he whispered, “Why, because you want me?”

“You’re incorrigible,” she said, breathless, her cheeks flushed.

She’s enjoying this. The thought pleased him. Rach was on her back beside him now, her eyes closed. He glanced around the park to see if anyone was watching. No one was. He could swoop in for a kiss and no one would catch him. No one would care, he told himself. She won’t mind

“I can feel you staring.”

Craig smiled down at her. “So what.”

She peeked at him with one green eye. “So stop it.”

“And if I don’t?” Maybe she’d tackle him, push him down on the blanket and…

She didn’t. She promptly closed her eye and went back to pretending indifference. “I’ll hit you, that’s what.”

“Not if I do this, you won’t.”

He’d only meant it to be a short kiss, but the pleasure of touching his lips to hers kept him there longer. Her tongue was velvet soft and warm against his and the slow mating of their mouths quickened his heartbeat even as he told himself, It’s no big deal, just a kiss.

She nipped his bottom lip and sent heat sliding through his body. The woman could kiss.

She whispered soft against his lips, “Now why don’t you admit that it’s you who wants me.”

FENDER BENDER BLUES, now available at Amazon.

    Great interview ladies. I hope to get and read FFB eventually, Niecey. When I di, I’ll let you know who I like best. 🙂

      Hi Calisa! Thank you for stopping by. The sad thing about being a published author is that we don’t have as much free time to read the books we want to! All that free time goes to writing…and writing…and writing! I have a copy of your novel, Home, which comes highly recommended, and I can’t wait to read that one!
