An Interview with Celia Kyle
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is He Ain't Lion and it's the start of your fabulous new Ridgeville series. What can you tell us about this exciting new series?
CK: Ridgeville, NC is a small town occupied by both lion and rabbit shifters and they're all aching for a mate to call their own. The males are dominant and demanding and the ladies won't stand for it, which makes for a ton of laughs and men begging for forgiveness when they get start ordering the gals around. They're curvy, yet refuse to be stomped on and shoved around by the big, bad lions. Add in a handful of baddies looking for the end of furballs and it's a series of love, lust and growly fighting.
What's even better is that Ridgeville is very close to Stratton and Mina Carter has a series in that very town (The Stratton Wolves). Her first installment is titled Midsummer Heat. It's both fun and super hot.
HH: How does He Ain't Lion kick off the series?
CK: He Ain't Lion introduces readers to the Alex, the pride's Prime, as well as a handful of other members of the pride. Toss in a rabbit shifter or two and we've got the beginnings of Ridgeville, NC. The men are growly, sexual beings who are looking for their mates and luckily, Alex finds his first.
HH: What can readers look forward to in this series?
CK: I've just released "You're Lion", which follows He Ain't Lion and reveals Maya's pregnancy and how she deals with that. The novella also introduces some other members of the pride and hints at what's to come. The next book has just entered edits (Ball of Furry) and I'll begin working on Head Over Tail within the next week. I'm anticipating at least six books in the series, but I'm not opposed to expanding it further if readers enjoy it.
HH: What do you like best about Maya and why do you think readers will relate to her?
CK: She's not today's "perfect" woman. She has curves, insecurities and hopes for happily ever after that have been out of reach.
HH: What do you like best about Alex and why will readers love him?
CK: He's growly and demanding, but always makes sure that Maya knows he loves her and fully satisfied in bed.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
CK: I'm working on more Ridgeville stories and also pondering another series with growly cowboys and the lovely, curvy ladies who love them.
HH: How long have you been a writer and what keeps you writing?
CK: I've been writing since 2007. And the only reason I keep writing is the fact that my mind keeps churning out ideas. Some are bad, some are good and some are great, but they all get a chance.
HH: What goals have you set for yourself at this point in your career?
CK: For writing, 1 novella a month. I'm writing full-time now, so I'm trying to keep readers filled with lots of yummy fun.
HH: What do you enjoy reading?
CK: I LOVE historical romances, regency and highlander in particular.
HH: What are you most looking forward to before the year's end?
CK: I'm planning a handful of weeks off for Christmas, but otherwise, it's more writing. It's something I love and I'm SO grateful that I can do it full-time now.
Thanks so much!
HH: Thank you!
