Hello and welcome Kara. It's wonderful having you on my blog today. Let's get to know you better.

<Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I was born and raised in the small town of Mexico, NY. As an only child I was forced to find ways to entertain myself. Usually that consisted of playing with Barbie dolls and reading. I hated being an only child—maybe that's why I grew up and had five kids. lol. Today, I'm a stay-at-home mom, still living near my childhood hometown with my husband, five kids, and three cats. When I'm not writing you can find me goofing off on Facebook or trying to figure out that blasted Twitter.

<What inspired you to start writing?
The simple answer: boredom. I've always wanted to write a novel and I'd started several throughout the years, but never finished them. When all of my kids were finally in school and I was home, alone, bored, I figured, "Why not?" So I put my fingers to the keyboard and started writing. I haven't stopped since.

<What are your thoughts on critique groups/partners?
Every author should join a critique group or have a critique partner. I have both. A second set of eyes is invaluable. I can honestly say that without the critique support I've received, I wouldn't be published today.

<What's your favorite thing to do when you're not writing?
It's rare to find me not writing, but when I'm not it's usually because I'm cleaning or cooking or caring for the kids or sleeping. I do like to read a lot and I enjoy just spending time with my husband and kids.

Where do you draw the line on erotic content/language?
Draw the line? I don't believe I've ever drawn the line. lol. Seriously though, it's an industry standard that certain things are forbidden such as incest, rape, pedophilia, etc. Obviously I draw the line on the taboo.

<Tell us about your newest release.
Never Date a Cop is an erotic novella. 

Blurb: Kynlee Paige is thrilled when she is reunited with Cooper Grant-the man she’s fantasized about for 12 years - until she learns he’s a cop. Kynlee has a strict rule to never date a cop. Will she be able to put her fears aside to learn to love him?

May 1996
Junior Prom
Kynlee glanced at the clock. Her excitement dwindled as she realized she had less than an hour left before prom was over and before she had to say goodbye to her date. She still couldn’t believe he’d asked her to the prom. Cooper Grant—star basketball player, top in their class, and one of the hottest guys in the entire school. But, soon, she’d have to say goodbye to him, the few friends she’d made, and the City of Oswego which she’d grown to love in the short time she’d been there. She cursed her father for taking a job with the FBI.
“Why so serious?” Cooper asked as he sat beside her, the too-large papery tablecloth crinkling around his knees.
Kynlee smiled. “Just can’t believe prom is almost over.”
“I know,” he said with a smile that melted Kynlee’s heart. “Bryce is having a post-prom party. Wanna go?”
“I’d love to, but I can’t. Curfew,” she said with an apologetic shrug. She still hadn’t told him that tomorrow morning she was boarding a Virginia-bound plane and that this would be the last time they’d see each other. What was the point? It wasn’t like she owed him any explanation. Prom would be their first and last date.
“Dance with me?” He stood and held out his hand.
Kynlee followed him to the dance floor and savored the feel of his arms around her as they swayed back and forth to the slow song. That night had been perfect. She couldn’t have imagined a better way to spend her last night in New York. Kynlee sheepishly looked up at Cooper—who stood a full foot taller than her—and saw the twinkle in his eye a moment before he pressed his mouth to hers.

March 2000
“Hey, sis, you coming?” her brother, Josh called from the car.
“You go ahead. I’ll catch up later,” Kynlee said, staring at the hole in the ground they’d just put her father in. He’d died a week ago and it was the first time she’d shed any tears. She was just so damn angry at him. Angry that he’d joined the FBI, angry that he’d spent more time in the field the past two years than with her, angry that he’d let himself get shot. And her brother was going to join the NYPD. In honor of their father, he’d claimed. “Yeah, right,” she mumbled.
She spun around in her chair and came face to face with those unmistakable baby blues. “Cooper?” She nearly gasped.
“I saw the obituary in the paper. I wanted to pay my respects and, well…” He looked down. “I was hoping I’d get to see you again.”
He wanted to see her again? Kynlee’s lips started to tremble and for the first time since her father’s death, she cried. Cooper hugged her and she buried her face in his neck. He stroked her hair and she cried harder.
“Do you want me to give you a ride somewhere?” Cooper asked after a while.
Kynlee wiped her eyes and nodded. “We’re staying at the Holiday Inn next to Dunkin’ Donuts,” she said. “But I don’t want to go back there.”
“My parents are out of town.”

Blurb: Ashleigh Malone had her heart ripped out by a man--a man who stole her money, left her in debt, slept with her best friend, and destroyed her ability to trust. She throws herself into her job and swears off all men.

Ryan Blake is stuck spending several months at his father’s resort-- the Aurora Island Resort--trying to figure out whose stealing money. His father is convinced it’s the resort manager, Ashleigh. Ryan is determined to prove otherwise. There’s only one problem though: his judgment is clouded by his need to have Ashleigh in his bed.

Currently she has several full-length novels in the works, a series of novellas, and a handful of short stories. Kara is an active member of the CNY Creative Writers Café and the CNY Romance Writers.
