An Interview with N.J. Walters
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio

HH: NJ, thank you so much for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is Double or Nothing. What can you tell us about how this sizzling cowboy romance came to be?

NJ:Thank you for having me at TRS. Double or Nothing began with Wesson and Remington Smith. I wondered what kind of woman would be able to tame these two tough Texas men. And when I found her, I knew that neither one of them would ever let her go.

BLURB:
After ten years away from home, Cherry Edmonds returns to West Texas when her father is ill and dying. Now she is left to deal with the estate and pick up the pieces of her life. The past is waiting for her in the form of Wesson and Remington Smith, the two brothers she was half in love with when she was eighteen. Wes and Remy know they’re different from most men. They are both in love with Cherry and have been since they were kids. One night of hot sex leaves all of them wanting more, but she believes their time together is just a one-night stand. It’s up to the Smith brothers to prove their love for Cherry and their commitment to the ménage, and to convince Cherry she’s definitely capable of loving two Texas cowboys.

HH: What do you like best about Cherry and why will readers be cheering for her?

NJ: Cherry is a tough and resilient woman. She was only a teenager when she left Texas, running from her feelings for the two brothers. There was no way she could handle an attraction to both men, not at her age. Now she’s back. Her life hasn’t been easy, but she doesn’t complain. She does what needs to be done. And one of the things that she needs to do is face her past, which means coming to terms with her attraction to the Smith brothers once and for all.

HH: What can you tell us about Wesson and Remington and why will readers love them?

NJ: I love Wes and Remy. They’re tough men who aren’t afraid of hard work. They’ve built a home and a business with a lot of sweat and determination. They’re loyal and they know what they want. And what they want most is Cherry in their lives -- permanently. Sure, they’re bossy at times and hard-headed, but that only makes the times when they are loving and gentle with Cherry all that sweeter.

HH: How is writing a story of romance with more than two characters different than writing a romance with the standard two people?

NJ: It’s more of a balancing act. As a writer, I have to make sure no one is left out. No relationship can work when one of the people involved feels excluded in any way. That isn’t always easy. You have to show all of them together, but you also have to allow the individuals to have time alone with one partner as well.

HH: What did you enjoy most about crafting this tale?

NJ: I love the characters in this book. Remy and Wes are such alpha males (Remy even more so than Wes), but they both are willing to compromise in order to make Cherry happy. And Cherry certainly has her work cut out for her. She knows she can’t tame men this wild, that she has to accept them as they are. That was the challenge and the fun of writing this book.

HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?

NJ: Damek’s Redemption is being released in print on September 3rd. After that, Howl of the Wolf, the final book in the Hades’ Carnival quartet is due out in October. As well, Craig’s Heart, the final book in the Legacy series will be releasing soon. No date yet, but I’d say early 2014. I’ve also just signed a contract for Wolf at the Door, the first book of a brand new werewolf series with Samhain Publishing. I’m very excited about that. And I also have signed a contract for a new Quickie with Ellora’s Cave. Watch my website and blog for more details as they become available.

HH: Where do you draw inspiration from?

NJ:Inspiration comes from everywhere -- television, a song, a magazine article or news report, a snippet of conversation or something I see which sparks a totally unrelated idea.

The idea for the Hades’ Carnival series started with a blog quiz a few years back. The quiz told you what carnival ride you were most like. Not surprisingly, I was a carousel. That got me thinking about carousels and I started asking questions. What if the animals on the ride weren’t horses, but were more exotic? What if they were really immortal shapeshifting warriors who’d been cursed  and were now stuck in their animal form? What would it take to release them? Who’d cursed them? It didn’t take long for the ideas to start flowing and the Hades’ Carnival series was born.

HH: What's your writing schedule like?

NJ: I like to write first thing in the morning before my mind gets cluttered with everyday life. I’m at my most creative then. I normally don’t write on the weekends, unless I’m on a deadline. I plan on writing for a lot of years and I don’t want to burn out. I believe it’s important for me to have downtime every week to keep me and my ideas fresh.

HH: Where can readers find you online?

NJ: Readers can find me at:
