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.

I hate that May is almost over.  Not for any reason other than I’m still so behind. I love that summer is teasing me with sunny days and warmer weather.  And I can’t wait for my son to come home from University, but when I look at my to-do list there are a lot of unchecked boxes.  There are a lot of things that really I thought I’d have finished in February or March and uh, it’s May and they are still unchecked.

The contemporary romance panel with Julia London, Annie West, Nancy Warren, Teri Wilson, and the fabulous French readers and bloggers.

I did go to Paris.  So that was a nice item that I fully enjoyed checking off.  I also travelled for the first time in a really long time on my own.  When I got divorced in 2007 it affected me in ways that still surprised me today.  One of them was ability to just blindly trust people, which had the trickle down effect of making it really hard for me travel on my own. I hate that.  I used to love meeting new people and seeing new places. I still love it but I have to get over this huge mountain of fear to do it.  Ugh.  There is nothing like getting older and feeling as insecure as my high school self.

Brigid Coady, Charlotte Ledger (editor), me, Jane Linfoot and Sophie Pembroke. Brigid is holding the Joan Hessian Award.

On the heels of my successful four days in Paris I went to London by myself for the RNA summer party.  I haven’t been making friends in the RNA like I have in the RWA.  I blame my natural shyness for that but this time I went by myself on the train (my husband usually goes with me and plans the train/underground stuff) and got on the underground and found the Waterstones’ bar where I was to meet my editor and the other Harper Impulse authors.

This weekend I spent a lot of time reflecting on these three things.  I’m going to be more focused in June and get those things checked off my to-do list.  I’m also going to continue getting out there…out in the world and trying the things that scare me.

What about you?  Anything you haven’t done/have done lately that’s changed you?  Tell me for a chance to win a Cheryl’s Cookie Card and my latest release from Harlequin Desire HIS SEDUCTION GAME PLAN.

His Seduction Game PlanI have a new release this month and it’s my 50th title for Harlequin Desire. When I sold my first book to Desire (20 years ago) I was chosen by my publisher as a Woman To Watch! I’ve tried to make sure that each book I’ve written for them over the years lived up to that. 🙂

Here are few fast facts about His Seduction Game Plan.

  • It’s the fifth book in my Sons of Privilege series which features second sons born with too much money and too little responsibility who find their paths and their rightful place in the world through love.
  • The background story of the Frat House Murders was inspired by my binge-watching How To Get Away With Murder. Truly enjoyed the TV show and love the ideas it spawned.
  • Like my heroine Ferrin I can’t catch anything thrown at me. It sometimes is a source of great amusement to my family as they tease me and say “Mom, catch this!”.
  • One of the themes of all of the Sons of Privilege books is that friendship creates a bond that is as great as the blood bond of family something that is true in my life as well. I have a very large and close knit family and I have a group of really good friends who are like family to me.
  • Lastly, His Seduction Game Plan is a story of two people who have to learn to trust each other and their instincts even though the past has shown them that they shouldn’t. It is very hard to fall in love when you’ve been disappointed in love before. I think that a love like that is almost stronger because sometimes you have to be stronger to accept it.

 

Here’s a link to an excerpt from His Seduction Game Plan. And you can order it here.

Tell me something fun that you have planned for the summer. I’m looking forward to some day trips around England and RWA in San Diego.

I’m giving away a copy of His Baby Agenda book one in this new Sons of Privilege duet to one lucky commenter.
