 Q: If you could live in another imaginary town/world, where would it be and why?

R.C. RYAN- I love the era of Queens Elizabeth of England and Mary of Scotland.  I've written about them often enough that I'd love a chance to actually be there in Court to witness a few of the scenes I researched. 

ERIN KERN- I would love to live at Hogwarts! Mostly because I’m sort of obsessed with old castles.

KATIE LANE- Do you have to ask? Bramble, Texas, of course. I’ve gotten very attached to my imaginary town and I’d love to eat chicken fried steak at Josephine’s Diner and hear all the town gossip. I’d loved to hang out at the library with Kenny Gene and pick out Scooby Doo books. Go for a ride-along with Sheriff Dusty Hicks—oh, boy, would I! And even go to Twyla’s hair salon—although I’d want Brianne to cut my hair. Twyla is a little too scissor happy.
LAURA DRAKE- Widow’s Grove, the small town that I’ve set a series in. Because I made it up, it’s perfect for me!

MOLLY CANNON- I would live in Nancy Drew’s town River Heights. Besides sleuthing and solving mysteries, I would go to luncheon in my blue convertible roadster with my chums, Bess and George and my boyfriend Ned.

LYNETTE AUSTIN- Oh, it would be in the Lowcountry in Georgia, right outside Savannah. This is truly one of the most beautiful, genteel places on the planet…and is, in fact, where I’m setting my next series. A little rundown at the heels, the community is bound and determined to pick itself up. This is plantation country, and my town has one spared by Sherman because of its proximity to Savannah. The flower shop is an old train car, Darlene runs the yarn shop started by her great-grandma, and Dee-Ann’s CafĂ© is the center of town activity. Everyone pulls together; everyone cares about each other. But even warm and fuzzy small towns conceal a darker edge.

Q: Favorite guilty pleasure?

R.C. RYAN- Drinking hot chocolate in bed while watching ABC's Scandal. I hate having to wait a whole week for the next episode.

ERIN KERN- The HBO series True Blood. Although, after this season I’ll have to find another guilty pleasure, because it’s going off the air.

KATIE LANE- Massages and dark chocolate.
LAURA DRAKE- Reading! I don’t have anywhere near the time I used to have for it, and when I can take a day off, sit on the pack porch in a lounge chair and read all day…. Ahhh.

MOLLY CANNON- Biscuits and gravy

LYNETTE AUSTIN- I’m a Starbuck’s junkie—and my license plate says so! Love those java chip frappuccinos. Of course, Cheetos come in a really, really close second—which explains the orange letters on my keypad!

Q: What makes a cowboy, a cowboy?

R.C. RYAN- Hard, dirty work.  A love of the land.  A courtly, fiercely protective attitude toward family, women and children.  Their work makes them rough and tough, but their heart and soul, their innate goodness makes them the perfect hero. 

ERIN KERN- Have you seen a cowboy lately?? Scuffed up boots, worn jeans, callused hands, a little five o’clock shadow, slightly too long hair….shall I go on?

KATIE LANE- I think it has to do with the legend. Cowboys have always been heroes (Wait, is that a song?)—strong, alpha men who can wrangle a steer and know how to treat a lady. It’s this mixture of tough man and mannerly country boy that makes a true cowboy . . . and makes women go crazy. That, and a snug-fitting pair of jeans.
LAURA DRAKE- Old world manners, an unbreakable word, and a wild side.

MOLLY CANNON- Well worn boots

LYNETTE AUSTIN-Attitude.  A cowboy is strong and confident, and he’s not afraid of an equally strong woman. He carries in his heart old-fashioned values. He stands for his country and its flag, says yes, ma’am and no, sir, and loves his mama and daddy—kind of a throwback to a slower, easier time but with a kickass edge
