Kathleen Ann Gallagher!


Pleased to have fellow Decadent Publishing author, Kathleen Ann Gallagher, with me today! She's talking about her latest, A SUMMER'S JOURNEY, releasing May 3 from Rebel Ink Press.

 But first...let's put her on the hotseat!

Hi Taryn!

 Thanks for inviting me to spend the day with you. I’d be glad to answer a few fun questions. 

1.) If you could spend a day with one of your characters who would you choose? 

I’d love to spend a day with Dr. Rob Sinclair. He’s a hot, NY Times best-selling author. It would be great to pick his brain and get find out what his secret to success is.

2.) Is there a specific time of day you get some of your best ideas?

I get my best writing done in the morning. I’ll admit I do most of my editing when everyone else sleeps. Writer’s clocks are different from the rest of the worlds.

3.) What celebrity do you have a secret crush on?

(Blushing) Channing Tatum! I need a fan. I saw him in person when my friends and I took a tour of NBC Studios. He was in rehearsal for Saturday Night Live. Have you seen Magic Mike? 

4.) Coffee or tea? 

I’m fickle. I love both. I drink a huge cup of coffee in the morning. My new favorite afternoon treat is Green tea with lemon.

5.) Are you a reality show fan?

  I’m hooked on the singing competitions. You’d laugh if you saw us huddled in front of the television making believe we’re the judges. I have to admit my husband is good at it. 

6.) What is your latest project?

My contemporary romance A Summer’s Journey will be released by Rebel Ink Press May 3. 


BLURB  
Savannah Mason, the career minded journalist, spends long hours at work, hoping to take the spot as anchor.  She continues to fight for independence and refuses to allow her demanding father to take control of her life, despite his wish for her to take over his surgical practice.

 On her darkest day twelve years ago, she agreed to give her baby up for adoption.  Now, on her daughter’s birthday, a chance encounter gives Savannah an opportunity to explore a corner of her heart she thought was lost forever.  

Rob Sinclair a renowned surgeon and NY Times best-selling author has a new release and needs a promo spot on the television show, The News Stop.  When Savannah gets to conduct the interview over the senior reporter, a door opens to her future.  However, first she must face the unsettled issues in her life, before she is free to accept love.

The last thing she wants is a relationship, especially one with a divorced, doctor who happens to have two small children.
 
A man, who seems all wrong for her, slowly weaves himself into her heart.  Can he accept her when he learns about her past?

Rob’s commitment to climb the ladder of success and provide a good life for his family, keeps him on the road for days at a time.  When he meets the assertive newswoman, desire and passion awaken his broken spirit.  How will he ever be able to trust another woman? 

Savannah and Rob’s strong attraction is undeniable as they journey to a place where honesty and the power of forgiveness, can guide them both home. Will it be enough to heal the scars of the past and allow them another chance for love?
 
EXCERPT 

Rob slowly approached her. The look in his eyes told her he had more than the view on his mind. Savannah turned away, afraid of what might happen next. Before she could stop him, they were too close for comfort. An electric energy surged between them. With one swift movement, Rob reached for her and gently placed his lips on hers. He cradled her head in his hands as if she was a precious jewel. The warmth of his touch sent shivers down her spine and the world stood still. When Rob’s hands moved slowly across her back, her body went limp and it took her to a level of arousal she never expected. It all happened so quickly, she didn’t have time to react. She found herself spellbound by the feel of his rock hard body pressed up against her chest. All of the emotions she’d kept inside emerged when Rob held her tight. When they finally parted, Savannah stood frozen in shock with her heart pounding and her ears ringing.

Rob’s expression made him look as if he broke the law. He quickly took a step back. “I don’t know what to say. I’m so sorry for my rude behavior.”

 “You weren’t rude. I didn’t stop you.”

 “I don’t know what got into me. You’re an amazing woman and I find you terribly attractive.” He stared deep into her eyes.  

“Thank you.” Savannah looked down, still shocked, but flattered.

Here’s where you can find me. 

BIO:
Although writing is my passion, nursing is my vocation.  I work in an emergency room, and it’s been challenging, and rewarding, to be such an integral part of so many other’s daily struggles.  I have a wonderful husband who always offers his support, and never complains about my crazy schedule. One of our favorite romantic getaways is Cape May, New Jersey, an old historic beach town where we take a step into the past, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.  Although my children are all grown with busy lives of their own, Chaz, our Shepherd mix, still dutifully stands guard at the house.  We are also blessed with three adorable grandsons.  

Other interests of mine include cooking, reading, and the theater.  However, spending time with my family is most important to me.  Even though my life is filled with work, family, etc., my mind continues to ponder the next story or concept for a new novel.
