Interview with Barbara White Daille

Why did you write this book?
I loved the idea of a matchmaking grandpa and was so happy that my editors liked it, too! That was how the new series was conceived. As for this first book, The Cowboy's Little Surprise, one of my favorite romance plotlines is the second-chance story, where the hero and heroine have had a past relationship that didn't work out and are now brought together under less than the best of circumstances.
A subcategory of second chances is the secret-baby story, in which the past relationship results in the heroine becoming pregnant by the hero, who never learns until the current story that he's become a daddy. When I wanted a hero and heroine for the grandfather's first matchmaking scheme, the secret-baby story just seemed like a natural.
What is your favorite genre to read?
     Romance!
 Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
This is a tough question as there's such a long list to choose from. So…I think I'll regress a bit and pick someone from my favorite childhood books—Nancy Drew. She solved so many fascinating mysteries and, later in the series, traveled to so many wonderful places with her friends. And she was smart at figuring out clues. I always wanted to be her when I grew up.
What are you working on at the moment, and what will we see from you in coming months?
I'm currently working on revisions for book 3 in the Hitching Post Hotel series. It has no title yet but will be out in December 2015. This is the story of Jed Garland's middle granddaughter and the one he's almost certain is going to spoil his matchmaking record.
Andi was recently widowed and left with two small children. Mitch is an L.A. cop recovering from an undercover op gone bad. He returns to his hometown of Cowboy Creek to recuperate, and there he finds his teenaged crush back again, too. He wants nothing to do with the girl who walked off and broke his heart one summer…but of course, our matchmaking grandpa doesn't intend to let that stop him!
Please tell us about your latest book.
The Cowboy's Little Surprise is book 1 in the Hitching Post Hotel series.
