Interview with Kelly Collins, Author of Broken Hart

What can you tell us about your new release, Broken Hart?

Broken Hart came about because fans of my popular Aspen Cove series wanted to know more about the Lockhart brothers, four sexy construction brothers who helped build The Guild Creative Center. They popped up here and there and because of demand, I gave them their own series which Broken Hart is book one. This starts with the oldest brother Noah who finds out the woman who broke his heart is back in town. Will he succeed at keeping her at bay, or will his heart rule his world and let her back in? Readers are going to love this second chance romance.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

Actually, it was a flight from New York to Colorado where a very handsome man sat next to me on the plane and my creative mind wondered “what if” a woman met the perfect man on a plane, fell asleep, did something totally inappropriate to him, and then found out he was her new boss. That started my writing career with a book now called Dream Maker.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

Oh wow, only five? Well, here goes:

The first romance book I ever read was A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux so one of my all-time faves.

Next would be The Royal Treatment by Melanie Summers, it’s laugh out loud funny.

Third would be One Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole, that one made me cry.

Fourth would be First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones, I fell in love with paranormal reading this book.

Fifth would be The Inside Out series by Lisa Renee Jones who can weave a wicked tale.

As you can see I have a very diverse reading palette.

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

What a great question. I’d totally want to interview Stephen King and ask if he had trouble sleeping at night.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

There’s the fact that it saves me a fortune in therapy, but in truth, I love exploring love relationships, the conflict that ensues and making sure that everyone gets their happily ever after.

What is a typical day like for you?

I have the best job in the world. I get to choose who to hang out with each day and when I get tired of them I write them out of the book. I’m a plotter which means, each day I sit down to work, I know exactly what I’m doing. I strive for one or two chapters a day. My days are long because not only do I write but I do everything else as well. A twelve-hour day isn’t unusual but I wouldn’t want to do anything else.

What scene from Broken Hart was your favorite to write?

The best scene in the book is the black moment when all seems lost and that’s because I know they’ll soon get their HEA. I can’t tell you what that scene is because I don’t want to spoil the book, but it involves my favorite things like a hot guy, good food, and a sassy heroine.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Yes, I do, It’s never hard to be kind. I try to Live for Love.
