Patchouli Dreams

Lovers from another century?

When Marilyn Sommers inherits a beautiful Gothic-style house, she has no idea its past and hers are intertwined. In the room upstairs, the scent of patchouli lingers, a scent that reminds her of Mason Donahue, the guy she dated her senior year. The guy that got away.

An Interview with Ann Cory
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio

HH: Ann, thank you for talking with us at TRS BLUE! Your featured book is Smolder Springs and it's just my kind of book. <g> Where did you get the idea for this sizzling tale?

AC: The inspiration for this book came after the realization that it has been ages since I've gone on vacation. I thought about going someplace relaxing and peaceful, a weekend escape, a place to be pampered and forget about work and responsibilities. Once the title came to me, my imagination was off and running.

HH: What do you like best about Kaitlin and why will readers relate to her?

AC: She's strong, witty, imaginative, and craves a little shake-up in her life.

HH: What do you like best about Harrison and why will readers love him?

AC: He's a romantic and hero at heart. And his voice... oh so sexy!

HH: In a sea of complicated paranormal and fantasy romances, why do you think this story will appeal to readers? (Like me!)

AC: This is a story for a quick escape -- much like the premise of the book. It's meant to make you smile, chuckle, and enjoy the break from reality. And maybe make you long for a few nights at Smolder Springs yourself!

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

AC: A couple sequels of reader favorites, and a holiday story.

HH: How do you view the future of ebooks?

AC: While I love love love to hold a book in my hands, I'm also well aware of the changes going on around us. The times are changing. Ebooks are environmentally sound, save space, are often more affordable, and I can't deny the wonderful ease of online shopping.

HH: How much of your day is devoted to your writing career?

AC: I've managed to pare it down to about 8 hours. I used to spend more time but I'm working on a more balanced approach to my life.

HH: What's your favorite way to interact with readers?

AC: Chats and blogs. TRS chats are a favorite because authors can show up at the times that work best for their schedules.

HH: What is your favorite Halloween type/themed story? Why?

AC: Around Halloween I enjoy reading Dracula, Halloween Party by Agatha Christie, and stories about true ghosts and hauntings. Those stories get my imagination running wild. And sleeping with a nightlight for several nights afterwards.

HH: What do you most enjoy about Autumn?

AC: It's my favorite season for more reasons than I can list, but for me it's when I feel most alive. The crispness in the air, wearing my favorite sweaters, the colors of the leaves, baking desserts that infuse the house with delicious aromas, and trying out new recipes sure to please the family.

HH: Thank you!
