Reading in the Sun - Interview with Kelly Moore & Giveaway

About Kelly Moore

Hi my name is Kelly Moore and I am Southern girl raised in Florida. I am a registered nurse actually an ICU traveling nurse, wife, mother of two children and I have three grandchildren. I have always been an avid reader and kept journals. Until Broken Pieces, I never had the courage to attempt an erotic romance book and submit it for publishing. I tend to embrace the brokenness in all of us. It makes us who we are. I love to see people come out strong and win against past pains.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing the story.

1. Could you tell us a bit about yourself?

I am a nurse by day and a romantic author by night and my days off. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother of the three most beautiful children. I know all say that, but seriously they are beautiful. I love to travel, hike, camp, and read. I have a lab named Cy that goes everywhere with me.
2. What kind of books do you bring with you when you go on holiday?

I’m always armed with a good steamy love story. I have most recently started reading suspense novels. I enjoy them, but I’m all about a good love story.
3. If you could spend a sunny day anywhere how would your perfect day look like?

I would spend my day hiking in Oregon to some remote lake that most people have never seen. I would have my hubby and my dog with me. We would enjoy the cool water and setup camp creekside and build a campfire. This would be my absolute perfect day.
4. Could you tell us about your hobbies (when you are not writing or reading)?

When I’m not reading and writing I’m chasing waterfalls and lighthouses. I love to capture their images and use them in my books. Again, I hike, camp and enjoy the great outdoors in general.
5. Where do you find inspiration for your stories?

I find inspiration in stories in the places that I’ve been and people that I’ve met. Sometimes inspiration comes from reading other books.
6. If you could be any leading character from a bestselling book, who would you be and why?

That’s easy – Anastasia Steele from Fifty Shades. You ask why? Christian Gray, who wouldn’t love a hot sexy alpha male like him. Having a red room of pain is another reason. LOL
7. What's your favorite reading spot?

My favorite reading spot is curled up in my bed. I like to make the room cold and snuggle under the covers where I can read for hours.
8. What is your favorite holiday destination and what do you like so much about it?

My favorite holiday destination is Zion, Utah. There is so much to do from hiking, camping, mountain biking, mountain climbing to just relaxing and watching the sunset.
9. Do you have any advice for authors who would like to write a sunny story?

Focus on how you want the ending of the story and how to get there throughout your writing.
10. What can we expect from you in the future?

I have a great new book coming out hopefully by the end of August. It is titled Next August and it is not part of the Broken Pieces Series. I’m so excited about this book. The feedback I’ve gotten has been amazing. It is my hope that it will be a bestseller and will be on all the bookshelves at Barnes and Nobles.

I will also continue with the two more books in the Broken Pieces Series. Pieces of Gray will be out late this year. Syn’s Broken Journey will be out in 2017.

  11. Sounds really good. I haven't read a book before where the hero looses his leg.

  12. It would be terrific to win a signed paperback copy
    of Piece by Piece by Kelly Moore.
    I haven't read any of her books yet but i enjoy reading and discovering new authors.
    Thank you for having this giveaway.

  13. Chasing waterfalls and lighthouses sounds great - I think writing and photography go wonderfully hand in hand, plus storytelling through words and pictures is the best combination.

  14. I really enjoyed reading about the author-- Kelly!--, and who she is as a person. I imagine her as the sort of person I might want to spend a 3-day weekend with, bumming around out in the woods with some good people, good food, a good dog or two, and other things that we love. Scrolling through her Goodreads profile led me to her Instagram feed*, and I adore so many of her photos! Lovely quotes, lovely dog, lovely (and broken) human beings.
