Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides in the wild north with her husband, children, and extended family who inspire her every day-or at the very least give her plenty of characters to write about.
Rebecca: Hi Adria! Thanks so much for having me here today and for the nice words about the series. I think Matt’s pretty amazing, too. I’m sure you’ll find your Matt out there.
Adria: If you had to introduce your Sin Brothers series, to a room full of potential readers, what would you say to get them to pick up Blind Faith?
Rebecca: The Sin Brothers is a series about a band of half-brothers genetically enhanced in test tubes and raised as soldiers. They learned early on that family is all that matters, and they fought for each other until finally gaining freedom from their creators. Now, all bets are off, they’re heading back to take out the people who created them…while finding love on the way.
Blind Faith begins with the hero having to hunt down the woman who’d broken his heart years ago in order to save his brothers from the kill chips embedded near their spines. He finds her, and while there’s definitely tension, he instantly feels the protectiveness toward her that he had when they were together.
Adria: What makes Nate and Audrey such a good couple and what makes their story so important to the entire series?
Rebecca: Nate and Audrey have painful childhoods in common, and they also were each other’s first love, so it’s fun seeing them find their way back to each other. Nate has always chosen family, and Audrey needs to decide who exactly is family to make her choice. What I liked about these two was that even though they’d hurt each other years ago, neither of them ever acted cruel to each other, even in the present. Plus, the sexual tension between these two was over the top.
Adria: Part of the editing process is that unfortunately scenes get cut or have to be re-written. Is there a scene from the Blind Faith you wish had been left in? If there is, can you share it with us?
Rebecca: This is such a fun question, and I wish I had a scene that had been cut! To be honest, I usually end up adding scenes after my first draft and very rarely delete one. But I did write an extra scene spotlighting Nate and Audrey’s first disastrous Valentine’s Day when they first dated…check my website or my FB page for when it goes live.
Rebecca: I’d have to say I’d Come For You by Nickelback. There’s something about the song that promises a future and total dedication, and I think Nate and Audrey have that.
Adria: The last time we chatted I asked if Total Surrender would be the last book in the Sin Brothers series and you said you were going to draft up a proposal for three more books in the series… Any official news on that front?
Rebecca: We’re still in the proposal process, but I’m really excited about it. I’ll keep you updated!
Adria: Aside from being the genius behind Blind Faith, you are also the author of two other series as well, just how the heck do you not only find time to write them, but keep them all straight? I can’t even keep my dogs’ food portions straight (I need a chart and different colored bowls)!
Rebecca: You know what really helps? Having playlists for every book. For some reason, if I put the playlist on for a certain book, I’m instantly back in that world. Other than that, I think I just get lost in books, so it’s easy to keep track once I’m there.
Adria: Have you ever been out and about in your everyday life and witnessed something so interesting/funny/intense that you just had to put it in one of your books?
Rebecca: I have two sisters and a couple of really good friends, and they’re all nuts. So they give me great ideas all the time. J
Adria: Once again, thank you so much Rebecca for answering my questions and in general being an amazing author. The Sin Brothers series is hands down one of my favorites ever and they sure do give me a nice distraction from the household chores!
Rebecca: Thanks so much for having me here today, and have a wonderful week!
