Meet another awesome author, Mary Wehr
I have great joy in introducing you to another author friend, Mary Wehr. I put some questions to Mary and you can read what she shared with me during our chat. She is one interesting lady! I also want to say thank you to Mary for dropping by.
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Thanks so much for having me on your blog, Mary. I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania. My dad was a coal miner and my mom a homemaker. I have four brothers. Two older and two younger, so that puts me right smack in the middle of endless torture. lol Brothers just have to pick on their sisters, right? J We’re much older now and even though they get in a zing in now and again, I know I can count on them if I need anything.
I’m married to a great guy and have one daughter who is on her own and doing well. That’s all a parent can ask for. I love animals and have two pets. A dove named ‘Scrappy’. He just turned 16 this past April and Cocobears is my sweet guinea pig. He’s getting old too and, of course, I dread when their time comes and I’ll have to say goodbye. I do have a variety of wildlife that knows a sucker when they see one. Deer, squirrels, chipmunks, birds
What genres do you like to write in?
I love reading Historical Westerns, Domestic Discipline and Contemporary romance so that’s what I love to write. My heroes are always Alpha, but not obnoxious and my heroines are sassy and spirited.
What is the title of your latest book, (tell us a bit about it)?
Wild for You is my latest Historical western. It’s the sequel to ‘Charley’s Pride’. I don’t have a release date yet. The secondary characters in Charley’s Pride’ Nathan Holt and Bonnie Blakely, get their story. Unedited blurb of Wild For You:
Nathan Holt longs for a relationship with Charlotte, his half-sister and, with some luck, lasso a certain blue-eyed blonde in dire need of taming. But Bonnie Blakely had been raised a proper lady. Was she too genteel for his base appetites? Most importantly, would both women turn away from him when they learn he has blood on his hands?
Bonnie has lost all hope of falling in love with a man strong-willed enough to put her across his knee. A brief encounter with Nathan Holt had held promise, but he left Swiftwater, Kansas years ago. He promised he’d be back. As time passed without a word, Bonnie feared her dreams of his firm hand and unconditional love would never be fulfilled. Content: Spanking, Explicit sex, HEA
What are you currently working on?
Right now I’m working on a Contemporary/AP romance. Ageplay is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I thought I’d give it a shot.
When and where do you like to write? Have you a favourite place?
The time I write really varies with the season and my mood. In the Winter, I write off and on all day, but during the warm weather I love to be outside so I usually try to get some writing time in early morning and late night. My favorite spot to write is by the window so I can keep an eye out for my critters. They are always looking for food. lol
Has there been a defining moment in your career that made you think, ‘Yes, I am a writer’?
After six books it still hasn’t sunk in. lol
What is next for you?
I don’t know. I wouldn’t mind doing a box set again. I’ve done two so far. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Separated from her father for ten years, Charlotte was determined to leave Boston and travel to Kansas with or without her mother's permission.
Propriety be damned! If it wasn't proper for a young girl to travel alone, she would disguise herself as a boy.
A man was considered lucky if he had a steady job, a roof over his head and an obedient wife. Ranch foreman Slade Hazard already had two out of the three.
A couple of docile ladies lived in Swiftwater, Kansas, and would fit his needs nicely. He might not be in love, but he'd be a faithful husband, a good provider and hopefully, in due time, a father. Yep, he knew exactly what he wanted, that is, until he met Charlotte "Charley" Henry.
The train ride to Cheyenne had gone off without a hitch, just as Charlotte thought it would. The jaunt on the stage taking her to Swiftwater, Kansas, should be a cinch. Even better, the tall, broad shouldered man sharing the stagecoach was a dream come true. A pity she couldn't reveal her true gender to the handsome Slade Hazard, and try a bit of flirting. Then the stagecoach is held up by a trio of bandits. Slade is determined to keep the passengers safe, even if he has to threaten the unruly 'boy' with a good strapping.
Charley's sassy mouth lands her into trouble and when the truth of her gender is in danger, she has no choice. She must reveal herself to Slade.
Charlotte had never been spanked in her entire life, but Slade soon remedies the matter more than once. Her dream man wouldn't dare take her across his knee, but would she be content with a man she could run roughshod over?
Slade thought he knew what he had wanted in a wife, but he actually enjoys sparring with the fiery redhead. Is it possible to fall in love at first sight? When Charlotte disappears just as the prisoner is released, more than one man fears for her safety. But who will find her first?
