5 Easy Questions: Barbara White Daille @BarbaraWDaille #RLFblog #Contemporary

The Sheriff's Son 
5 Easy Questions is an interview is designed to be quick, easy, and fun. Today's guest is Barbara White Daille.
Would you rather stay inside and watch snow falling, or get out in it and build a snowman?
Stay inside. Preferably on the couch with a good book, snuggled beneath an afghan and/or close to a crackling fire in the fireplace (if I had one). Oh—and with a tray of hot chocolate and cookies by my side.
What was your favorite book as a child?
Wow, is this a tough question. I would have trouble picking a favorite series, let alone a favorite book. Really, there were so many….
But I'll take a stab at what's bringing back fond memories at this very moment—and that would be Harriet the Spy.
I connected with Harriet because, like me, she always knew she was going to be a writer. And I loved getting a peek into her notebook filled with observations about her life and all the quirky characters she ran into.
What were you like when you were in school?
Shy, quiet, introverted, and with my nose usually stuck in a book. Pretty much the way I am now.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
Since my hero's a deputy sheriff and I would be channeling my heroine, the ringtone would be an oldie but goodie: I Fought the Law.
Remember that one?
Three-quarters of the lyrics are "I fought the law and the law won." And since you know I write romance, it's probably not giving anything away to say that…eventually…Deputy Sheriff Tanner does win Sarah's heart.
What is your go-to meal to order when you dine out? Your favorite "I know it will hit the spot" item.
No-brainer on this one! My favorite dish is Alaskan King Crab Legs with plenty of hot melted butter.
Because they're on the pricey side, I tie them into a "reward" for hitting an important milestone, which usually means turning in the manuscript for the next book…or the sale of a new book…or the release of the latest book. As The Sheriff's Son had already been out in print and has just been re-released for the first time in e-book format, I figured that entitles me to celebrate this book twice!

The Sheriff's Son
Why Is Tanner Jones Back In Town?
Seven-year-old Kevin has been a handful for single mom Sarah Lindstrom, and when the new sheriff walks through her door holding her son by the scruff of his neck for egging his car, she knows she's lost control. But can she control herself—and keep the secret she's kept for so many years?
Tanner Jones has no idea Kevin is his son—he lost the right to that information when he abandoned Sarah soon after graduation. Just because he's back in town doesn't mean he can waltz into her life—and Kevin's—to pick up where they left off. But Sarah can't deny the feelings she still harbors for Tanner, and can't deny how her son is benefiting from his attentions.
When Tanner finds out the truth, what is he going to do?

  1. Kayelle - thanks so much for hosting me and for the fun Q&A!

    Readers - I'll be in and out but am happy to chat, so feel free to leave a comment.

  2. I'm with you about the snow I would rather stay inside and watch it.
    Is being a published author all that you thought it would be? Is there anything that surprises you? Is there a genre of writing that you would like to try but haven't yet?

  3. Hi, Beth - being a published author is definitely all that I thought it would be - as well as some things I'd never dreamed of! One of the most wonderful things is seeing how readers connect with my stories, since that's what I'm all about. I've been a reader since the age of five and can only hope that my stories give readers a tiny bit of the pleasure I've gotten from other authors' books.

    I've always loved to write, and one of the surprises was discovering that it's actually the toughest job I've ever had. But I still love it and know I'll never stop writing.

    As for genres, since I started reading so young, my favorite books were mysteries, then I moved on to romance. Once I fell in love with short contemporary romance, that's where my heart stayed. Never say never, though. We don't know what the future holds.

    Thanks for asking!
