About this author
KATR: Why did you decide to start writing?
Hilary: I started writing because one day my twelve year old daughter came home from school devastated. She had written a story and shared it with her friends. One of them told her that she could never be an author. I told her that we don't let anyone tell us what we can do. If we want to be an author we Make It Happen. I asked her who is the last person in the world she would think could become an author. She said me because I'm too busy. So I became an author to prove that we can do anything we put in our minds!
KATR: What's hardest part of being Indie author?
Hilary: Definitely promotions. It's so hard to network and keep up the marketing aspect when you are trying to write the next novel.
KATR: Advice to someone thinking of self publishing?
Hilary: My advice is to get out there early and reach out to another indie author. Get into groups that authors are in. Research everything!!!
KATR: Who or what author has inspired you?
Hilary: My first inspiration was Jamie McGuire. We are from the same town and I thought you know what, I can do this. Take a simple story, make the guys hot, and have strong females! I liked the writing style of Abbi Glines and Jessica Sorenson.
KATR: How do you get over writer's block?
Hilary: I take a HOT shower and blare music. I have a shower playlist that gets me past most of my blocks. If this fails I go to my coffee shop! Cafe' Davinci's has been my writing cave for probably half of these first two books!
KATR: Do you listen to music while you write?
Hilary: Yes I listen to music constantly! It keeps the outside world away from me!
KATR: Who is your favorite book boyfriend?
Hilary: My fav book boyfriend is Caleb. Why on Earth do I love the man who kidnapped a girl to sell as a sex slave?? Because I fell for him hard! CJ Roberts mind f$&%ed me and I will ALWAYS remember that series! That is huge because I read a lot!
KATR: What made you write about a rock band?
Hilary: My husband was a drummer. And that's just hot as hell!
KATR: What made you decide romance vs another genre like mystery?
Hilary: Because I like to read romance! That was simple! I love that just falling in love feeling!!
