Interview with EmKay Connor
Why did you write this book?
I saw an invitation on Facebook to participate in a box set featuring steamy beach reads. I’d been plotting a new series and this was the perfect opportunity to launch the Hideaway Bay series. The first four novellas feature the Delaney sisters-Joy, Hope, Grace and Faith. Each has a secret that is ultimately revealed when they journey to Hideaway Bay, a tropical Caribbean resort.
What is your favorite genre to read?
In addition to writing romance, I work as an author assistant to several romance authors. That means I read a lot of romantic fiction, across all genres, in the course of my day job. When I’m on my own time, I read Robert Crais, Stuart Woods and good post-apocalyptic fiction. I’ve recently discovered the Purge of Babylon series by Sam Sisavath.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
While I love Elvis Cole and Joe Pike (Robert Crais characters), one of the most charming and engaging heroines I’ve ever encountered is Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m currently working on the remaining novellas in the Hideaway Bay series, but I tend to have several projects in the works simultaneously. The best way to stay in touch and see what’s next is to connect with me on social media.
