Author Interview Darcia Garcia
How did you choose your genre? What made you write the book?
I fell in love with Contemporary Romance at a young age. I knew that should I ever write a book it would be a romance. After holding back for much too long I was inspired by a friend who has since passed away to go for it. So I did.
Writers write what they know and must observe the world. Are you firstborn, middle, or last and how does this shape your view of the world?
I am number four of five children and the only girl. With four brothers I can tell you that there was very little of the romantic in my home. I think it absolutely impacted my need to stick with what I consider a very feminine genre.
Where is your favorite place to write?
I have a beautiful space outside on my lanai. I love it there.
How do you feel about killing your darlings and what do you do with the remains?
I hate killing my darlings. I really do. It is so painful because work went into that darling and time and sweat and possibly a curse word or two but I will do it if I believe it will enhance my current body of work. Sometimes the remains can be recycled, sometimes not. It’s a crapshoot.
You are introduced to your favorite author. Who is it and what is the one burning question you want to ask them?
I adore Nora Roberts. I would say my burning question would be whether or not, after having a book published, has she ever read it and hated it? I often wonder what great authors think of their body of work after it’s out there.
You are stranded on a desert island with only a backpack. What three items are in your survival pack?
Water, my laptop, and clean underwear.
If you could have one superpower in your existence what would it be?
The ability to cure cancer.
Walnuts and fresh strawberries.
Indy 500- Do you know how to get where you’re going or do you do the speed limit.
Totally know where I’m going!!

GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Megan Cunningham could never have imagined she would meet her handsome neighbor while chasing her badly behaved Boston Terrier Lucy but that is exactly what happened! After careening headlong into Brice Castillo’s chest and gazing into his icy blue eyes the fireworks began!
Brice is head over heels for the beautiful blonde and cannot help but pursue her. Still, there is something he is holding back that may just keep these two hearts apart forever! They are both determined to find a way and may just have sealed their happily ever after.
Panicked, Megan reached the open door. Just as she was about to enter, she crashed
headlong into a chest. A very large, very male chest. Immediately a strong hand
grasped her shoulder, helping to steady her as she rocked back from the impact.
Breathless, she looked up. The stranger’s eyes were startling, an icy blue mixed with
slate. “Extraordinary,” she thought, fascinated by their hue.
“Are you ok?” the man asked, his brow furrowed in concern.
“What?” Megan babbled, staring up at him, completely unable to form a cohesive thought.
“This is exactly why you’re still single,” she thought, still mute. Just then Lucy began barking furiously. Horrified, Megan observed her errant dog as she ran deliriously over the stranger’s very expensive leather couch. Her tongue hung almost to her feet as she trailed drool joyously. The man had turned away from her, both of them staring incredulously.
“Is that your dog?” he asked without turning. “That dog?” Megan squeaked. “No. I mean yes, yes of course she is,” then, pushing past the stranger, Megan ran towards Lucy who wasn’t the least bit concerned by the murderous look on Megan’s face.
