Katherine Garbera

default-logo-200

Katherine Garbera is the national best-selling author of more than 50 books. Writing is the chief focus of her time after her family and the only thing she likes more than working on her own books is reading other authors. She is a frequent speaker at conferences and loves the opportunity to talk about writing with anyone who'll listen. Garbera started making up stories for her own benefit when she was on a competitive swim team in high school. Though she went to State and usually medaled at swim meets, Katherine says her heart wasn't in swimming but rather in the stories she created as she swam laps at practice.

She worked for The Walt Disney World Company for 15 years and did everything from being a hostess on It’s a Small World, to saving swimmers at the Grand Floridian Resort, to touring around VIPs such as Jack Valenti at the Disney-MGM Studios and being a production page on the New Mickey Mouse Club--yes, it might be possible that Britney, Justine and Christina owe her a nod of thanks for keeping all those kids who had to go to the bathroom from interrupting their performances.

Katherine's books have been featured in magazines such as REDBOOK (11/98)and have even been featured on the large JumboTron in Times Square, and excerpted in COSMO (7/10) Her latest release THE PIRATE is the second book in her Savage Seven series featuring a group of mercenaries. The story is ripped from the headlines and features a group of pirates who attack a tanker off the coast of Somalia. You can contact Katherine through her website.

th_037376104XWhen I first started writing romance novels back in the early 90s the popular trends in contemporary romance were brides, babies and cowboys.  And because I’m contrary by nature I set to work on a novel about a single-mom with a seven-year-old (definitely not a baby).  I was unpublished at the time and every contest I was a finalist in, I was up against some cowboy, baby or bride.  Somehow this made me more determined not to write one.  I sold my not-a-cowboy-bride-baby book to Harlequin for the Desire line and THE BACHELOR NEXT DOOR was released in 1997.

I did a pretty good job of staying away from those trends until recently when I dipped my toe into the cowboy sub genre.  And I have to admit I love those rough and tumble men.  The way they are no-nonsense (billionaires are too!) and can sweep a gal off her feet.  I have an upcoming Christmas novella Cowboy, It’s Cold Outside.  :)

And babies…the problem with babies when I first started writing was that I had a toddler and then was pregnant and had a baby–funny how that happens! And writing about a pregnant heroine or babies was too much my reality.  I didn’t see the cute part until my kids were teenagers.  Then I could look back fondly and write a baby book.  Or in my case a series featuring cute babies, billionaire alpha men and strong feisty women. :)  My latest release FOR HER SON’S SAKE is available now.

So what about you?  Are you a trend follower? Or a trend bucker like me?  I’m giving away an  autographed copy of FOR HER SON’S SAKE to three lucky commenters today!

Hello everyone! I can’t believe that October is right around the corner and soon I can officially start decorating for Halloween and Fall!  

Here are my top five fav things about fall.  I grew up in Florida which doesn’t have a real autumn so that’s why I love seeing the signs of it everywhere.

1. The colors! I love the fall leaves.  Seeing all the browns, oranges and yellows where their used to be just green…abundant green.

2. Carmel Apple Martini.  I kind of feel like this one needs no further explanation other than yum, yum, yummy!

 

 

3. Football.  This one is hard to get my fix for in the UK but the NFL has three games scheduled over here this year and I’m making all my favorite tailgating recipes for our British friends!

4. Hot cocoa.  I love it.  It makes me feel a little bit wicked because I pile on the whipped cream and my fall sprinkles.  They are shaped like leaves! :)

5. Sweaters and boots.  There is nothing more comforting than pulling on a thick fall sweater and a pair of boots and stepping out into that first chilly morning.  It’s not so cold yet that it’s unbearable and because summer is fading the cold feels so nice.  

What’s your favorite thing about fall?
