Interview with Lynn Kellan

CAG_promo_2Tell us about yourself.

Hi everyone! I’m Lynn Kellan, and I write contemporary romances about strong men who have a weakness for smart women.

 What is your writing routine like?

I write while I walk on my treadmill, and I’m usually underway by 8am. I write (and walk) until 11am, eat lunch, and work at my desk during the afternoon. By 4pm, I’m usually at one of my kid’s sporting events. Evenings are devoted to seducing my husband.

 Where can readers find you?

I’m on most social media platforms (website, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest). I’m addicted to Pinterest and Facebook, so I do spend a lot of time there. You can find all of my social media links on my website:

 Do you have critique partners?

Yes, I do! My agent suggested I join a local Romance Writers of America chapter and she urged me to join a critique group. Doing both of those things really helped improve my craft. Currently, I’m President of my local RWA chapter and I’m so very lucky to work with a wonderful group of authors who spot the goofs in my rough drafts.

 What inspired your latest book?

Shopping inspired my latest release. I stopped by a Simon Pearce store to buy a set of goblets and wandered into the factory to watch the glassblowers work. The instant I saw those talented men working with fire and molten glass, I knew I had to write a story about a sexy glassblower. There’s something very compelling about man who can take a 2500 degree lump of hot silica and turn it into a work of art.

Tell us about your hero.

Mitchell Blake and his father keep butting heads about expanding Blake Glassware, and now Mitch has to deal with his father’s consultant, Jaye Davis. She claims online marketing will boost sales, but Mitch insists broadening their product line will increase revenue. Arguing with this doe-eyed woman makes one thing perfectly clear: she has the power to shatter his safe, lonely life.

Tell us about your heroine.

Poised to become her overbearing father’s right-hand man, Jaye Davis is tired of being a faceless drone, writing software. She’d rather help real people—like the family who owns a struggling glassblowing factory nestled in northern Pennsylvania. While she’s there, she might figure out how to squash the secrets gnawing at her.

Jaye has four weeks to save Blake Glassware, but there’s no place to stay in this remote town. Every hotel room is booked for hunting season. The only available bedroom is in Mitch’s house, but living with him is risky. Can she hide her secrets from a glassblower who sees through everything?

IMG_8621What are you reading now?

I tend to read a number of books at the same time. I just finished the most recent release by Diana Gabaldon. Currently, I am reading the Game of Thrones series. Oh, and I just finished Lie of the Needle, by Cate Price, which was a wonderful cozy mystery, full of heart.

EXCERPT From Clear As Glass

She stood her ground and yelled, “Get on the sled, Mitchell Blake!”

“Nag, nag, nag. I’ll fly down the hill when I’m good and ready.” He barreled into her like any good linebacker.

“Ooph!” The world tipped upside down. Jaye hung over his shoulder like a dirty sack of rock salt. She dropped the snowballs and clawed at the back of his coat. “Put me down!”

“There must be a consultant talking, because I can’t hear a thing.”

“Your hearing was damaged by the wild stunts you pulled in college. Speaking of which, are you overcome by an urge to run naked through the snow?”

He swatted her on the rump. “Streaking can be arranged.”

“Wait. Let me get my camera. We can post the pictures on your company’s website.”

“Sales will go through the roof.”

She laughed, which came out in a piggish snort while she was upside down.

With a quick move, he flipped her upright and put her on the sled. He sat behind her and buckled his arm around her waist. “Like most things, sledding is better with two people.”

“No!” Irritation spiked. The last thing she needed was another man telling her what to do. She slapped her mittens on his big thigh and tried to push herself off, but the sled rocketed downhill, throwing a thick mist of snow into the air. Jaye screamed—surprised, annoyed, and laughing like a kid on a wild amusement ride all at once.

They gathered speed, careening toward a gully at the edge of the meadow.
