Author Interview with Jacki Renée ~ New Release: Necessary Lies ~ #Giveaway

Please help me welcome Jacki Renée…(Be sure to check out her AWESOME giveaway!!)

 

Happy to have you here, Jacki. Please tell us a little about yourself, where are you from? Where do you live now? Family? Pets?

Born and raised in sunny Southern California, I live minutes away from the construction site for the LA Rams football stadium. I’m a single mother of two amazing daughters, ages 24 and 16 (the age difference is a blessing and a curse). We have 3 dogs, 2 bunnies, and 1 turtle.

Where did you get the idea for Necessary Lies?

NECESSARY LIES started as a short story for a post on a free social publishing site. One morning, while driving to work and listening to Ryan Seacrest on KIIS-FM, the first two lines of Stay With Me by Sam Smith made me ask myself, ‘what if Bryan felt that way?’ and the seed was planted for the story to grow into a full-length novel with plot twists and turns and a secret backstory. One evening I was watching Dancing With The Stars and heard Leela James sing Fall For You live. Her soulful voice gave my story its journey of trust and love. I was sitting in the car in front of my daughter’s middle school waiting for them to return from grad-nite and heard Not A Bad Thing by Justin Timberlake on the radio. My hero now had a voice and a purpose, and the one book turned into a trilogy.

Why did you choose this genre (is it something you’ve written in before)?

I can’t really say I chose to write romantic suspense, the theme of my storyline just happens to fall in that subgenre with a high heat level.

Was there anything unusual, any anecdote about this book, the characters, title, process, etc, you’d like to share?

I like to use industry standards as guidelines for being different. I don’t want my stories to fit neatly in any box.

What is the most difficult thing about writing a book?

For me, the most difficult thing about writing a book is sending my baby [book] off into the world to be read and judged. Liked or disliked. Hoping everyone loves it, yet remaining open minded when someone doesn’t.

Are there any tricks, habits or superstitions you have when creating a story?

When I’m having a difficult time writing, I go sit in the car with my laptop. Being out of the house gets me over the hurdle and knowing the closest electrical outlet is just steps away allows me to enclose myself for a few hours.

Do you collect anything?

I collect tote bags. It is an obsession. If I’m at an event and vendors are handing tote bags, I have to have one (or two).

What do you want readers to come away with after they read Necessary Lies?

I’m fascinated by the way the brain processes words and use that knowledge to my advantage by intentionally using double entendres to hide the truth in plain sight. I want my readers to come away with feeling challenged to think outside the box when reading the Lies storyline.

What is your favorite quote?

The dirt always comes out in the wash.

If you could spend time with a character from your book, whom would it be? And what would you do during that day? (PG-13 please :))

I would want to hang out with Max. He is funny and carefree. Flamboyant and quick witted. I can picture us going shopping and him convincing me the dress doesn’t make my butt look big even though the mirror says differently. He would make me buy the highest heels I can stand in, then teach me how to stomp the runway in them.

What is the toughest criticism given to you as an author?

The very first writing contest I entered, a judge wrote: ‘You need to read more books in your genre and follow those examples. It’s obvious you are clueless about what romantic suspense is’ [copied directly from the scoresheet]. Little did that judge know, I do read romantic suspense, but I believe there is more than one way to spin a suspense tale.

What has been the best compliment?

I asked a critic partner, if she would provide a quote for my press release. She wrote: Necessary Lies is an intriguing story told in an intriguing way. The use of two first person POVs kept me totally engaged and it will you, too. – Michal Scott

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?

The brotherhood and bond between the Men of Phantom is based on the friendship my nephew has with his friends. They have known each other for 20+ years. These young men are ‘ride-or-die’ friends and all successful in their own way. I try to capture that bond in each story of the series.

How did you come up with the title?

Sometimes it is necessary to tell a lie to protect a loved one.

Your favorite…

Music – All genres except heavy-metal and gangster rap

Place you’ve visited – Boulder, Colorado; Tempe, Arizona

Thank you, Jacki. Wow, fun interview. That judge needs a lesson in etiquette and courtesy. Ha, I LOVE Justin Timberlake. And Baby Daddy. You’re the only other person I’ve heard of who watches. 🙂

Author’s Bio:

Dare to Take a Risk and Stand out From the Crowd.

I am Jacki Renée. If you see me behind the wheel—lips moving, no one else in the car—don’t be frightened. I’m having a conversation with one of the many characters who live in my mind. But if I’m bobbing my head and snapping my fingers, getting into the beat of the music and the lyrics to the song, do not disturb. I’m developing a story or a character.

Music sparks my inspiration to write and I listen to a variety of music. I credit my story ideas to the emotions I sense when listening to music. It’s the tone of the artist’s voice mixed with the sounds coming from the instruments that sends my literal mind into another dimension. I play songs on repeat until I can put into words how I want my characters to be perceived.

Reading is my Passion, writing is my Pleasure. An avid reader, I pick up a book to escape everyday life for a few hours. And if the story is exceptionally good, I’ll escape reality for twenty-four hours. Reading novels since high school, from timeless literary masterpieces to today’s mainstream fiction, I’ve found both passion and pleasure in the written world of books. I divide my “me time” between my daughters, writing, and reading. It started as an after-work hobby until a follower encouraged me to try writing on a professional level. I nurtured my gift into an obtainable dream.

A web search for information on a teen soap opera series tapped into my pleasure for writing. My first adventure happened when I stumbled upon FanFiction. After months of following many aspiring writers on the website, I worked up the courage to submit a one-shot story. The feedback and comments I received encouraged me to write more. It didn’t take long before the one-shots turned into short stories. Then one day, a short story turned into my first full-length novel, which expanded into a trilogy and now a planned series of trilogies. Even after a two-year break from posting on the site, my stories are still getting views, favorites, and comments. I look back on those posts to measure how much I’ve grown. The redundancy, grammar, and punctuation errors are criminal acts for which I could be prosecuted, but those stories are my beginnings. My babies. When I give pep talks to author friends, I always start with, “you have to crawl before you walk; walk before you run; then run so you can leap over the hurdles and cross the finish line as a published author.”

My approach to writing is to draw the outline and allow the imagination of the reader to color in the blanks. Meticulously chosen words can outline the plot yet still hide the truth in plain sight. Emotional words invoke the images and colors, sounds and scents, tastes and touch of the story. Words are the clues used to visualize the story. I strive to create a portal to a different reality, so my readers see the story through the eyes of the characters. Call me sinister, but I love keeping my readers confused to the end, then shocking them when I point out the obvious. If you commit to traveling the road, you get to experience the peaks and valleys and walk with the characters into the arms of a “Happily Ever After.”

My goals as an author are to… always finish what I start, be it a book written by a fellow author, or a manuscript I worked on but put aside. Expand my reading palate by finding new authors and “paying-it-forward.” Stay true to my beliefs, yet open myself to a world seen through the eyes of others. Always find the positive in the face of differences because my stories may not be for everyone, but they will entertain someone.

 

 

Necessary Lies Book Blurb:

What do you do when your whole life is a lie?

Single mother, Dr. Danielle Edwards, never imagined her happily-ever-after ending so soon. But now her world has been shaken off its axis. Orphaned and raised in foster care, Danielle learned early in life to be independent. The only emotional attachment she had in childhood was to her friend and now-dead husband, James. The only emotional attachment she has now, is her daughter. That was until Bryan came into their lives…

Everything about Colonel Bryan K. Hawk IV is devised to draw Danielle to him—from the way he dresses, to his motherless child. On the surface, Bryan is a successful global businessman, but he’s hiding the real purpose for his relationship with Danielle. For nine-years, he’s been investigating James Edwards. His assignment, to recover stolen information from an anti-American organization—information that exposes a centennial government secret that could start World War III. And Danielle is unknowingly caught in the middle.

Bryan is trained to get answers by any means necessary, even seduction. But the government didn’t train him how to resist someone like Danielle. Not even when he’s falling in love… not when the truth will rip them apart forever.

 

Necessary Lies Excerpt:

On the way to the grocery store, a catchy song plays on the radio and I turn up the volume. The lyrics ignite a yearning in my heart and the emotion in the singer’s voice speaks to my soul. I know what it’s like to want to give yourself to someone, but to be uncertain if they will take care of your heart. It takes ultimate trust to drop my guard and make myself vulnerable to anyone. I wanted that with Bryan. I wholeheartedly gave him something James never had. The most valued piece of me. We have history. I didn’t realize how lonely I’d been until we moved here. My world has been shaken off its axis.

Excerpt:

Patrick crouched behind Lacy in the cargo area behind the driver’s seat. The muzzle of his gun jabbed the nape of her neck. She followed his commands until she neared the end of Center Street. They were headed out of town. Her gut told her not to go. But her gut didn’t have a solution for the weapon aimed at her brain stem. On the other hand, if she did as he said, she would end up dead. Or worse.

As Lacy ferried herself closer to that fate, fear somehow gave way to reason. Why wait? And why give Patrick the reins? If she died, it didn’t have to be at his hand. In fact, it didn’t have to happen at all. Like Roy said—he was only one man. She ran through her options. There was no way she could wrestle his gun away. But car wrecks killed people every day. Especially when they weren’t wearing seat belts. Hers was in place but Patrick was in an open space. Given the right circumstances, he could become a human projectile.

“Turn left at the corner,” Patrick ordered.

It was a four-way stop. A car crossed the intersection opposite her. The driver gave Lacy an appreciative glance as he passed and Patrick jerked her by the hair. “Stop looking at him. I don’t want you looking at men.”

She bit back a cry, refusing to give him the satisfaction of knowing he’d caused her pain. “Do you want me to crash?” Lacy surprised herself with the harsh tone she used, especially given the dread this day had conjured in her mind for so long. But it was as though his abuse made a dam burst inside her causing all the emotion she’d fought so hard to contain to surge over the spillway. It all melded together into cold rage.

“Mother is angry. She expected us weeks ago.”

Lacy let that go. “That was you at the coffee shop, wasn’t it?” She used a tremulous voice. It was important that he believe she was still afraid. And she was—just not of him. What she had decided to do was going to hurt. There was an upside to Patrick coming to Brookton. This was her town. She’d lived here all her life, knew every turn in every road. Lacy flicked on the left blinker and drove through the intersection, anxious fingers tapping the steering wheel.

“How did you know?” Patrick sounded surprised.

“I smelled your cologne.” That was why her nightmares had returned, she finally realized. Just like the night he’d snuck into her apartment. An internal alarm had tried to warn her. Lacy drove west on a two-lane highway. Adrenaline set her stomach on fire. The property she had in mind had been vacant for months. There was a big tree at the side of the road. If she hit it just right …

One advantage of having an older brother was what he had taught her about cars, particularly the rear wheel drive variety. Jack had driven a truck in high school. This would be like the donuts they did in snowy parking lots. Except for the part where she slammed into the tree. Even if it didn’t work, death by tree was preferable to death by Patrick.

The van rounded the bend. Lacy hit the gas and sucked in a breath. She pulled the wheel hard to the right. The van creaked and bounced as it careened over uneven ground. Patrick lost his grip on her seat and slammed into the left wall. The gun clattered to the floor, giving her some measure of relief.

 

Wow, sounds like an excellent read, TR. And, my daughter’s name is Lacey (with an ‘e’). 🙂

Please tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from? Where do you live now? Family? Pets?

My husband and I raise bison near Denver, Colorado. Our miniature beagle, Misty, pretends she’s a shepherd when it’s time to move the bison between pastures. We have four grown children who, like us, lead adventurous lives.

Sounds amazing. I bet you live in a gorgeous area. Where did you get the idea for Prey for Me? Why did you choose this genre (is it something you’ve written in before)? Was there anything unusual, any anecdote about this book, the characters, title, process, etc, you’d like to share? What is the most difficult thing about writing a book? What was the most difficult thing about this one in particular?

Prey For Me was my first book. The title is a play on words that stems from the relationship between my main character and her stalker. I came up with it early on and it stuck. The seeds for the story came from an intense dream I had. I wrote it in my journal. The motivation to move forward with it came from an impending change in my life. My husband was going to start commuting to work out of state and I knew I would need something to occupy me so I didn’t start binging or get addicted to late night TV. So, why not try my hand at writing?

I wouldn’t exactly say I chose romantic suspense so much as it chose me. The story idea came to me and wouldn’t leave me alone. The scenes in my head left me no choice but romantic suspense. I enjoy writing this genre because I’m a suspense junkie and a romance buff. It’s like peanut butter and chocolate! What’s not to like?

I’m a research geek. While working on Prey For Me, I interviewed several people who have medical knowledge beyond my own. That said, nothing is the same as real life experience. In one scene, my main female character is dehydrated. While I was polishing that scene, my son became dehydrated after a long day at an amusement park. He was unable to drive safely so his friends brought him home so I could take him to the ER. While I was very concerned about his condition, the trip there was rather entertaining and highly informative as to how dehydration can affect people. Suffice to say, I thought he was high. So did the docs…until they saw how he came back after some IV fluids and got his blood work back.

The biggest challenge I faced was not having written a novel before. In truth, I’d never written even a short story. I had done a lot of business writing and it always came easy, but the idea of penning (or keyboarding) an entire novel was daunting. I relied on a critique group to help me see the flaws in the story and the weaknesses in my writing. Their input was invaluable. Making it to THE END and getting strong reviews from readers boosted my confidence.

Your debut novel with no past experience? I’m impressed! Do you have another occupation, other than writer? If so, what is it and do you like it?

I do hair for weddings and special events. It’s a lot of fun and gives me some great writing fodder.

What was your first job?

I cared for an elderly spinster who lived all alone in a large mansion. There was a tiger skin on top of her grand piano. Her family was a founding family in our town and I was fascinated by her personal and family history.

Fascinating! You’ve had some great experiences. What do you want readers to come away with after they read Prey For Me?

An appetite for more of my books!

Ha, that’s excellent! What genre have you never written that you’d like to write?

I think I have at least one literary fiction book waiting its turn to be written by me.

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?

They come from my imagination but I base some of their characteristics on people I have met or have interviewed.

Who is the most famous person you have ever met?

Okay, this is going to date me… When we lived in LA, we were friends with Leroy Smith. Now, it’s not likely you know who that is, but he used to be a pro basketball player in the European league. He told us he’d played ball with Michael Jordan in college and that they were very good friends. This was back when Michael was a household name. He told us about a time when Michael was just on the cusp of his fame; They were at a McDonalds and one of the workers said, “Are you Michael Jordan?” Michael replied, No, I’m Leroy Smith,” so he could get out of there easily. To be honest, we thought Leroy had embellished his story. Several weeks later, we were watching the Chicago Bulls playing on TV and during halftime, they played an interview with Michael and Leroy where Michael told the exact same story! Here’s Leroy’s Wikipedia page that tells a lot about their relatnonship: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvest_Smith We had a good laugh with Roy the next time we saw him.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

I don’t have just one favorite, but a new-to-me author whose writing really draws me in is Dennis LeHane. I recently read his book, Moonlight Mile and couldn’t put it down. The book was set in Boston, a city I wanted to move to after high school (though I ended up in California).

What really strikes me about his writing is the level of detail he brings into the setting without making me yawn and want to skip pages. Okay, there’s also the fact that his suspense gripped me by the throat and didn’t let go. No formulaic contrivances needed, just fresh story with interesting plot twists. A truly creative writer.

I agree…I adore him!! If you haven’t read the entire Patrick Kenzie series, then you’re missing out. Check out A Drink Before the War, then keep reading from there. Trust me! 🙂 Thanks so much for joining us today, TR.

TR’s question for readers: What keeps you in a story?

Meet Meet Racine Weston from No Luck At All by Julie Lence

Please help me welcome today’s guest, Julie Lence…

Hello Alicia. Thank You for having me as your guest today. It’s a pleasure connecting with you and your readers. No Luck At All was probably the easiest story for me to write. Racine spoke to me the entire way. Below, get to know her better and you’ll discover why she tugged at my heartstrings from beginning to end. 2 people will win a Kindle copy of No Luck At All just for leaving a comment. Hugs!  

My pleasure, Julie! I’m thrilled to have you and I look forward to meeting Racine. Thank you for the giveaway!  

Hello. I’m Racine, the youngest daughter of wealthy and respected Boston doctor, Donald Somerfield, and his socialite wife, Katherine. Mama hated me from the moment I was born. She had it in her mind that Papa wanted a son, and when I came out a fourth daughter, she blamed me for that mishap. She swore she would not jeopardize her figure and looks again to bear papa another child, moved into her own bedroom, and handed me and my care over to the servants.

My toddler years, I found it unbearable to not have Mama’s love and acceptance. My sisters, Valeen, Victoria and Valerie did. Mama would fuss over them, take them shopping and plan parties for them. She did none of that with me, which made me try all sorts of ways to gain her approval, none of which worked. I only earned her ‘rolling’ of the eyes, a stern lecture on how I was disobedient and very unladylike, and words of how no one would ever like me. I was unlovable.

I found that last part hard to believe. Papa loved me and spent as much time with me as his doctor duties allowed. Even the servants seemed to enjoy my company. Then one day, on a whim to make mama happy, I went to her flower garden to pick her some flowers. A stray dog leapt out from under the bushes and attacked me. His paw clawed my cheek and Papa had to stitch three deep cuts. When the bandages were removed, I had three long, red, ugly scars. Papa swore they would fade in time, But I knew that wasn’t true. Every year, they got bigger, more noticeable–this was proven when I overheard my sisters beg Mama to keep me hidden from their friends. They said I was hideous and would scare away the other girls.

After that, I took to spending a lot of time in my room, alone. The maids took pity on me and taught me how to sew. Sophie, our cook, taught me how to prepare delicious meals. My skills flourished under their guidance. Even Papa was impressed with the curtains I sewed for his den.

The years passed and I reached an age where Papa insisted I attend the dinner parties he held for his interns. I wanted nothing to do with socializing and retreated to my room on those occasions. One night, Papa ordered me to attend a dinner. Grudgingly, I did, and kept to the shadows most of the evening until one man asked me to dance. I wanted to decline his offer, but his warm smile drew me to him as his hand drew me out of the corner. I’m thankful I didn’t refuse him, for that night I met and fell in love with the most handsome, heavily muscled, kind-hearted man to ever exist―Creel Weston.

Creel courted me relentlessly. He took me to the park, to dinner, and for strolls around Mama’s flower gardens. He told me he loved me and wanted me to marry him. Part of me believed him. The other part was unsure, until he stood beside me at the altar, said his vows, and gave me a ring. I’ve never been so happy, and then that happiness disappeared as before my eyes Creel went from warm and caring to a cad on the eve of our wedding.

I don’t know what brought about the change in him, but I have a good idea. Somehow, he came to the conclusion he can’t bear looking at me and my hideous scars for the rest of his life. Though he’d never once commented on them, I gathered the preacher joining us together for all eternity sparked feelings in him he never knew existed. I can’t blame him―I am ugly. But I can hope for some semblance of comfort and accord between us. I thought I had found that after Creel and I hashed out some misunderstandings. But now, an old friend from Creel’s childhood claims he loves her. After replaying some events over and over in my mind, and pitting Amy’s beauty and refinement against my scars and lack of elegance, I fear she is right in that Creel loves her and not me.

 

No Luck At All is the 3rd book in the Weston Family series and available for purchase at Amazon:

www.amazon.com/dp/B0064R6NVI

Excerpt from No Luck At All:

“A sassy mouth isn’t becoming of you.” He sat across from her.

“Ungratefulness doesn’t become you, either,” she rallied back.

“Butchering me like a side of beef does?” He raised a brow.

“I butcher you?” Disbelief shone in her eyes. “You butcher me. Most of the time you don’t talk to me and when you do, you’re mean.”

“Have a heart, Racine. I’m doing the best I can.”

“If this is your best, I’d hate to see your worst.” She fidgeted with the sash on her robe. “What’s bothering you, Creel? Why do you think the worst of me?”

“Because,” he barked and instantly regretted it. Fear sprang into her eyes and she sank back in her chair, her shoulders trembling. “I apologize,” he said quietly, leaning forward and resting his arms on his thighs before folding his hands together to conquer the churning in his gut. If he wanted any kind of normalcy with her, it was now or never.

BIO:

Julie was born and raised in upstate New York. She married her high school sweetheart and accompanied him on his twenty-year career with the United States Air Force. Presently, she resides in the Pikes Peak region, where she’s a stay-at-home mom enjoying a career writing western historical romance.

Throughout her school years, Julie enjoyed reading and writing. A friend introduced her to the romance genre in the late 80’s and she was instantly hooked, crediting Judith McNaught and Johanna Lindsey as her inspirations to pen her own novels. As she puts it, Ms. McNaught’s voice is flawless and Ms. Lindsey’s Malory family is endearing and addictive. Combining her fondness for horses, John Wayne and the television series, Dallas, Julie settled into writing about cowboys, outlaws and the ‘old west’ early in her career.

Julie self-publishes her work at Amazon.com. She also designs her covers. When she’s away from her computer, she enjoys taking care of her family and home, exploring the Rocky Mountains and meeting fans of the romance genre. To connect with her, visit her here:
