Interview with K. Bromberg

Posted on Feb 25, 2017 by in Interview |

About The Author

 

k brombergNew York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.

The Interview

 

1 sweetsmall.As a child, what did you want to be when your grew up?

When I was little, I wanted to be many things from a veterinarian to a chimpanzee trainer (think Jane Goodall) to a doctor. 

1 sweetpurplesmallWhat is your favourite food?

Chocolate. 

1 sweetsmall.If you were a superhero, What would your name and superpower be?

Super Mom. My superpower is mulitasking and the ability to do 500 things at once.

1 sweetpurplesmallWhat is the one thing that you can’t live without?

Diet Coke. Or my laptop.

1 sweetsmall.What would you do if you were the last person on earth?

I would make sure to watch each sunset and sunrise because my time to watch them would be limited.

1 sweetpurplesmallDo you have any horror first date experiences that you can share with us?

Fortunately, no. I honestly have only had 2 first dates in my life. One of them, I dated the man for 4 years after that and the second one, I married.

1 sweetsmall.Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your writing? (First book written, How long ago, etc)

I am a Mom of three little ones (Ages 11, 8, and 6) who spends most of her days writing feverishly between soccer practices and school functions. I have two bachelor’s degrees that have nothing to do with my job (political science and economics) … and I worked in accounting before. 5 years ago I read a book called Fifty Shades of Grey (you may have herd of it, lol) and I decided to challenge myself to see if I could write a book. Fast forward a year later and I released Driven in May 2013. It did okay. Then Fueled released 90 days later and life started to change. It took me a year to quit my day job and become a full time writer.

1 sweetpurplesmallWhat genre are your books? What draws you to this genre?

I write contemporary romance and I love writing it because I love to write the push and pull between the characters. I love the dynamic of it all. Of weaving a story, creating the suspense in the reader over whether a HEA will happen. And I love writing that final scene that makes your heart swoon and swell and twist so that you can’t contain the happiness when they fall in love.

1 sweetsmall.What is the hardest thing about writing? I would not have a clue where to start! It is mind boggling when I even try to imagine.

For me it’s the first chapter. I outline heavily but it’s the first few lines of that first chapter that have to be perfect so that a reader doesn’t put it down and continues to read it. I also find pacing hard … to make sure the story moves at a good pace but with enough description to draw in the reader and make them invested. 

1 sweetpurplesmallDo you read much? If so who are your favourite authors?

Sadly, I don’t read much any more because I don’t have time to.

1 sweetsmall.Ebooks or paperbacks, Which do your prefer?

Hmm. I do like both. The good thing with ebooks is I can look up vocabulary I don’t know and that’s pretty awesome …. and paperbacks… I love the feel of the paper and feeling their weight in my hand.

1 sweetpurplesmallWhich of your books did you enjoy writing the most and why?

It’s whichever one I’m editing at the time to be honest. It changes from book to book.

1 sweetsmall.Do you have any interesting writing quirks?

Not really. If I listen to music (which I do), it has to be songs I already now the words to so that I don’t become distracted. 

1 sweetpurplesmallHow important to you are character names in your books? Do you choose the name based on liking the way it sounds or do the names you pick have a meaning?

Names are very important to me. I pick them yet not by meaning. And I like to pick unique ones so that the character stands out. 

1 sweetsmall.Is anything in your books based on real life experiences or do you write purely from imagination? (If you have a real life Colton Donovan in your life, pretty please can I pinch him?)

I write purely from imagination. I’m sure some of my every day life experiences are present in my books in some way or another but for the most part It’s all make believe.

1 sweetpurplesmallWhich of your books would you like to see as a film and who could you see playing the lead characters?

Hmm. I’m not sure. Of all of my books, I personally think that Hard Beat or Sweet Cheeks would make the best transition to film but I know most readers would say the Driven series… and if I were to make a movie of it, I’d want reader input into who would play the characters.

1 sweetsmall.To end the interview, do you have any words of wisdom for anyone wanting to write their own book?

To anyone who wants to write, my words of wisdom are to write, write, write. As a writer, you become better with each word, each scene, each chapter you put down. The more you write, the better you become.

 

Thank you so much for participating in this interview Kristy 🙂

K. Bromberg’s Latest Release

SRCover_jpeg

Ryder Rodgers had a plan.

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.
