Hi everyone! When I saw that I had the same name as the main character of this book, I just had to interview the author. She's one of my favorite authors and I was glad to be able to chat with her about her new release! Enjoy!
1. What inspired the story of this book?
The hubs and I were on a motorcycle trip from London, England to Oslo, Norway. We had to cross the ferry from Harwich to Ebsjerg and we hung out with an eclectic group of bikers along the way, who shared all sorts of fantastic stories with us. I got quite a few of my characters from that trip!
2. How did you decide on the character names?
My heroine is a tough, kick-ass biker chick but she hides a soft, girly side. I wanted her name to reflect her softer side, and I've always loved the name Arianne (my second daughter's middle name is Arianne). Also, I know a blogger with the prettiest name... **winks**
My hero needed a tough, take-no-prisoners name but I wanted it to be slightly different. "Jagger" suited him very well.
3. Why have you chosen a motorcycle gang and not billionaires, tattoo artists, etc?
My hubs has motorcycles and we've done a lot of road trips where we hung out in biker bars and met interesting characters so it was something I was familiar with. Also, I could test out moves in real life on the bike!
4. Did you have a say on the cover of Rough Justice?
Not too much. St. Martin's sent me a draft. I loved it. End of story!
5. How many books do you have planned for this series?
So far there are three books in the series: Rough Justice (Arianne and Jagger), Beyond the Cut (Cade and Dawn), and Sinner's Steel (Zane and Evie).
I swear, I'm already in love with the character names. Zane is also one of my favorite male names! It's just so sexy! ;) Thanks for stopping by, Sarah!
