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.

So yesterday Kristan was blogging about her TV obsession Naked and Afraid.  I love TV and my latest obsession is binge-watching television shows.  I have a really hard time watching a show when I have to wait an entire week to find out what happens next!  One show that I binged on was How To Get Away With Murder.p10777346_b_v9_ag

Have you seen it?  It’s riveting.  I find most of the characters not likeable at all but I still want to know what happens next.  I should confess that I was a Court TV junkie until that station ceased to broadcast. I happened to watch the entire first season of How To Get Away With Murder while I was plotting my latest release from Harlequin Desire.

You might be thinking, um, Kathy, Desire is glitz, glamour not murder…well, you’d be right.  But the backstory for my latest Sons of Privilege (heroes who are born with lots of money and end up flawed) was already taking shape. I  wanted my heroes to be men who were challenged by their past, good men underneath all that privilege, I added in my love for football and the TV show and created the Frat House Murders as their backstory.

The first book is out now.  Here’s a teaser:

9780373734511-2 2A nanny. A single father. A love stronger than revenge? Only from USA TODAY bestselling author Katherine Garbera!

Ten years ago, someone framed him for murder. Kingsley Buchanan lost everything, including Gabriella de la Cruz. Now the billionaire is back to settle old scores. But he must protect his child. Kingsley needs Gabi—as a nanny for his son.

But Gabi is no longer a naive girl. She’s a businesswoman with needs of her own. The only thing that hasn’t changed: her hunger for Kingsley. But Gabi won’t risk her heart on a man she can’t trust—unless she can convince him that love is more powerful than revenge…

What’s your favorite TV show right now?  I just binge-watched Daredevil…omg, I could write an entire blog about the Marvel/Netflix shows.  I loved Jessica Jones as well and can’t wait for Luke Cage to air this fall.

I’ve got a copy  of  HIS BABY AGENDA and some cool book swag for one lucky commenter.

ScandalousBillionaires-FRONT-ONLYThe Scandalous Billionaires is a boxed set collection of five sexy romance set on the beautiful Isola del Sole written by myself and four of my good writing buddies. Two of them you know from this blog—Nancy Robards Thompson and Kathleen O’Brien so you have a leg up in the game. Mimi Wells and Eve Gaddy have been guests on the blog so you might have an idea of their personalities. I can tell you they are all wonderfully talented women who know how to write a damned good story.

Here are four facts about each one of them. Can you spot the lie?

Give me your best guess to be entered to win a copy of the Scandalous Billionaires box-set when it is released on May 3.

BONUS:  If you tell me a truth or lie about yourself I will enter you to win a copy of my upcoming Desire HIS BABY AGENDA.

Eve Gaddy:

1)I love dogs

2)I am short

3)I am tall

4)I love to watch baseball and basketball

Nancy Robards Thompson:

1.) When I’m not writing, I breeds corgis.

2.) Once, when I was in Europe, I left my purse on the TGV bullet train (the fast train that only stops at specific destinations). I jumped back on, grabbed my purse, which had fallen between the seats, and jumped off the train as the doors shut. I narrowly missed- we’re talking seconds — being swept away to the south of France without my family. This was in the days before cell phones.

3.)I was in a Pizza Hutt commercial.

4.) I was a stand-in on The New Mickey Mouse Club.

Mimi Wells:

1) I separate M&Ms into pairs and eat them by color so it’ll be even on both sides of my mouth.

2) I brew beer

3) I’ve never lived in the state where I was born.

4) I spent much of my youth dancing in a kilt.

Kathleen O’Brien:

1) At five, I was the president of the I Hate Boys Club.

2) I get homesick something awful and always have.  Even when I went to visit Mr. Adorably but Hopelessly Wrong at his college, I pretended to get sick after a few hours, and flew home. I knew my husband was going to be The One because I could travel with him without faking a fever.

3)  I can’t stand Tom Hiddleston.

4)  I can’t eat runny eggs.  Not won’t.  Can’t.

 

Katherine Garbera:

  • I have a very spoiled miniature dachshund.
  • I know all the words to the entire movie Romancing The Stone.
  • I was serenaded by a group of Marines after winning a writing award.
  • I have never danced on a table.
