Author Thursday: Interview with R. T. Wolfe

One of the things I love most about being an RWA member is the opportunity to meet and chat with other authors, and they are always friendly, awesome people. R. T. Wolfe is an excellent example of that--she's one of the nicest people you could ever meet. And she has a golden retriever. (I love goldens.) :) If you enjoy romantic suspense, you should definitely check her books out.

1. What flavor is your writing? (Contemporary? Spicy? Action? Space odyssey? Ninjas? All of the above?)

My writing is definitely contemporary. It’s been called spicy, but that seems to be subjective. I often describe the romance as PG-13. My books often incorporate secondary characters, family, and some kind of mystery.

2. Where do you get your inspiration?

I’m asked that often and I truly don’t know. Sometimes when I’m editing a work in progress I ask myself, “Where did I come up with this stuff?”

3. What drew you to write romantic suspense?

I love to read romantic suspense that is warm, intelligent, and saucy. I can only hope that is what I bring to my readers.

What is your favorite part of writing it? Honestly, I enjoy each part of the writing process. The research, the outlining, writing that first line, the re-outlining, the editing … it’s all like a drug for me.

4. What are you reading now or what books do you have in your TBR pile?

I just finished reading an Advanced Reading Copy of Genevieve Jack’s third installment in her Nightshade Series. Excellent book.

5. What are you working on now?

Savage Rendezvous, book #2 in my Nickie Savage Series, comes out next month. In the short story prequel and book #1, Detective Savage solves her cases as she searches for the perpetrators who abducted her into child trafficking as a young teen. With the help of Duncan Reed and his photographic memory, they get closer with each book. Right now, I’m working on book #3 in the series. Nickie is great fun to write. She sassy, uses her sexuality when it suits her and holds her own in a bar fight.

Savage Deception Blurb:

Busy juggling loan sharks and Amber Alerts, Detective Nickie Savage makes time when the FBI seeks her expertise with a child trafficking ring. But when Nickie discovers that the men running the ring are the same ones who abducted her as a young teen, the case gets personal.

Risking her badge, Nickie goes rogue. Luckily, she has Duncan Reed, along with his wire tapping and surveillance expertise. But Duncan also wants to take their relationship to the next level.

Now, Nickie must choose: break her own rules and risk her heart or forge ahead alone.

Savage Deception Excerpt:

“This is our hotel.” Those were the only four words Nickie had spoken since Duncan picked her up at Vegas Metro. He’d expected her to be shaken after the day she’d had. He didn’t expect her to be shaking.

Heading for the elevator, he realized they were retiring to their room as the rest of the town was beginning their evenings. He heard them before the elevator arrived. Loud, drunk and male. The doors slid open to a small group of young men. They reeked of marijuana and alcohol. One did a double take at Nickie.

“The cop stripper!” he slurred. “I got your card in here somewhere.” He patted his pockets.

Nickie wore what she usually did. Button-down blouse, this one raspberry-pink, and black slacks … both tighter than most wear. She was never afraid to use her sexuality when it suited her. Her black boots had heels. Her gun was secured on her belt, along with her badge and cuffs.

Duncan saw it all through an angry haze of red.

The one patting his pockets took out some cash. The others whistled as they pulled out more bills.

Duncan stepped in front of Nickie.

“Come on, dude. Share!” they boy said to Duncan.

He wasn’t sure whose arm it was, but before he knew it a hand cupped her breast. As quickly as the arm reached her, Nickie twisted and had it wrenched behind the man’s back. “That’s assaulting a police officer you stupid piece of shit.” Her voice was eerily calm.

“Hey!” another one defended, landing a hand on her shoulder. Duncan took it, bending it back until he heard a crack. The boy bellowed in pain as his friends stepped in to help.

Fists flew and heads bobbed. They were drunk and young. That excuse wasn’t going to help them. Duncan ducked easily taking two down with solid hooks as he heard the soft heels of the security officer running toward them.
