{{AUTHOR INTERVIEW}} Kathy Coopmans

We were so excited when Kathy agreed to an interview with us. With multiple books that grace our kindles I think you will agree, that not only are the covers amazing, the words  written within are just as captivating and give us endless hours of pleasure.


Amazon Best Selling Author Kathy Coopmans, lives in Michigan with her husband Tony where they have two grown sons.
After raising her children she decided to publish her first book and retiring from being a hairstylist.
She now writes full time.
She's a huge sports fan with her favorite being Football and Tennis.
She's a giver and will do anything she can to help another person succeed!

When and why did you begin writing?
I started writing 3 years ago after my youngest child left home to serve in The Air Force. Being a reader my entire left me daydreaming of putting words on paper. I figured why not give a shot, so… I taught myself with tutorials on proper grammar, structure, etc. Plotted out a story and before I knew it Shelter Me was published.

Do you ever experience writer's block?
Always! When I do I pull myself away by devouring as many books as I can until my mind is at ease and once again focused.


Do you write an outline before every book you write?
I have notes, outlines… NOPE! 


What was the name of the first book that made you cry?
Hmm. That was a long time ago. Flowers in the attic by VC Andrews
.
Having wrote series and standalone which did u have the most fun with and why?
Series. I love the reaction of readers when they become invested. The excitement, conversations and anticipation from them pushes me forward to deliver.

How many hours a day do you write?
 8-10

How do you name your characters?
 Our dandy friend Google!

If you could spend time with a character from one of your book whom would it be? 
And what would you do during that day? – Oh for sure Roan Diamond for my Syndicate Series. I would love to pick that genius mafia man’s brain. Not to mention take a look at all that stuff his wife Alina says he has. ;)

You just finished writing Empire which is the final book of the Syndicate Series, how do you feel about this being the end of the journey for them all?

I cried. How can I not. This series made me realize how much I love writing a little on the edgy dark side. Yet, I know many people are waiting for this book to see what happens. That pulls me out from the thunder cloud for sure.


Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?
Oh yeah! If it wasn’t for readers we would be doing something we hated. So, thank you for allowing me to continue to do something I love.

Of all the characters you have created, which is your favorite and why?
Oh, my favorite would definitely be Calla from The Wrath of Cain. That woman was pulled into a lifestyle she knew nothing about. A hidden secret. She braced it with everything she had. Accepted those she loved simply because she loves them.

Have you written any other books that are not published?
Not yet. Started a standalone that will be out after the first of the year.

Whats the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for your book?
Porn...let's leave it at that!


Here are all the purchase links for Kathy's books

The Redemption of Roan

Roan Diamond's loyalty to the family may be obligated by blood, but nobody ever said he had to love them all, right?

As the next in line to head the Diamond dynasty, he has loose ends to take care of, and one of those is his brother Royal. Yet his plans for revenge fall apart the minute he lays eyes on Alina--Royal's ex-girlfriend, who also happens to be the daughter of the rival Solokov family.
As a mafia princess, Alina Solokov knew it wouldn't be easy when she made the decision ten years ago to leave the family for a new life at a college in England--but betrayal is often a dish served cold by those who you love the most. Now, back in the United States after a job offer that she couldn't refuse, her new found strength is pushed to the limits when Royal returns to claim her for his own.
When the man who captures her heart amongst the chaos is front and center in a lifestyle she swore never to return to, can she hold her ground and fight being sucked back into the black hole that is the mafia underworld? Or will Roan's love be worth the ultimate sacrifice?
