Inside the Author's Studio with Beverley Kendall w/ Book Giveaway

with Beverley Kendall

I have always loved books, romance and wished that everyone (most especially me) would find their happily ever after. Add in my love of London, England set in a period when ladies strived to be genteel and dresses could barely fit through doors, and it was obvious I could write nothing but historical romances.

As the mother of one too bright and mischievous young boy, I pull full-time duty on all fronts. When I'm not working at my techy-type job, mothering, writing or reading, I'm probably sleeping and dreaming of a time when I'll have time for my favorite hobbies: knitting, crocheting and sewing.

Describe yourself in one sentence?

I’m creative to my very soul.

What are the one record, book, and food, you'd take to a desert island?
My Love by Paul McCartney and Wings, A Whole New Light by Sandra Brown and mangoes.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I wanted to be a published author.

Which book do you wish you'd written?
Sarah’s Child by Linda Howard

What makes you happy?
My son, my family and friends and reading and writing.

What makes you angry?
People who can never see that the glass is half full.

Name five people how you'd like to invite to a dinner party?
President Obama
Oprah Winfrey
Norman Rockwell
Stevie Wonder
Norm Abram from New Yankee Workshop

What's the scariest thing you've ever done?
Sent my manuscript off to be critiqued.

What inspired you to start writing?
My love of reading and my desire to change stories to suit myself.

Where would you most like to live?
In a state with all four seasons on the east coast, on a level two acre plot of land with a wrap-around porch.

What is your favorite curse word?

Who is your favorite man candy?
The guy on the cover of Lauren Dane’s Insatiable.

Sum up your latest release in no more than twelve words!
Pride and Prejudice meets The Taming of the Shrew with more heat.

Everyone leave a comment to thank Beverley for an awesome interview and to win a copy of her latest release A Taste of Desire. You have until midnight Sunday EST to enter. Good luck!

I'm with you, I get so annoyed at the glass half empty instead of half full people. We all need a bit more optimism in our lives. Best wishes on the new book.
