Author Interview-Lynda Coker
What inspired you to become a writer?
I've always been a hopeless daydreamer with multiple scenarios bouncing around in my head. But I never equated that with being a writer until I read an interview where the writer said that she decided one day to turn her daydreaming into a book. Well, duh! That seemed like a fun thing to do, and if you knew me well, you'd know I usually leap before I look. Before I knew it, I was chin deep into a writer's world.
Who are your favorite romance characters (besides your own?)
Usually the characters in the last book I've read are my favorites. They're fresh on my mind and still linger in my heart and imagination, so they get first place until I read another great romance.
Tell me what inspired this story.
Men who are born leaders and commander have their own unique attraction, however, not every woman finds that quality endearing, especially in the beginning. So I thought it would be fun to see how one reacts when faced with a woman that just isn't into the alpha male persona. Stormee and Dirk have that type of beginning in STORMEE WATERS.
What is one of your favorite romantic locales?
Anywhere near water. I love the ambiance associated with breaking waves, ocean sunsets, etc. The view, smell, sound, along with water's eternal mystery, all come together to make those locales full of romance.
