Alexis takes her job very seriously. As one of the younger account executives, proving herself in the workplace is much more important than having a love life. And now that she’s been assigned a dude ranch account, she’s more determined than ever to show her doubters that she has what it takes.
Unfortunately there’s a tall, hot-tempered, brown-eyed cowboy who manages to distract Alexis from her goal by grabbing her attention…in a non-professional kind of way.
Mitch is the cowboy of her dreams—and also a distraction her career can’t afford.
And the real doozy? He also happens to be the ranch owner’s son, and this little fact alone has the potential to ruin everything for this city girl.
What is your favorite part about being a writer?
Getting creative. That moment when you’re in writing mode and the words flow. It doesn’t matter whether they turn out to be good or bad. Love that feeling.
What is your favorite and least favorite type of scene to write?
Any scene that builds tension whether it is through dialogue or actions. Let’s get the brawls started.
Does any of your personality ever go into any of your characters?
Yes, but I have much more fun using my daughter as a character and embarrassing the heck out of her. She hates showing up in my characters, but she’s in so many of them. Alexis, from The Sweet Life, took on a life all her own. I can’t say I based her on anyone.
If you’re not writing books, what would you be doing for a living?
I’m not making enough money yet to support my collection of stray dogs and retired horses so I still work a day job. I teach as an adjunct at a local college. It’s almost as fun as writing and horseback riding.
If you could tell your younger writing-self anything, what would it be?
Stop taking yourself so seriously. Remember, this is supposed to be fun.
If you were stranded on an island, what 5 books would you wish for?
Lord of the Flies (of course) by William Golding for a reality check; The Stand by Stephen King to consider all things good and evil; Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris and Wildfire in His Arms by Johanna Lindsey for escapism; and Local Girls by Alice Hoffman for a happy ending after lots of tragedy.
Which author(s) have inspired your writing?
So many! I’m on a Lisa Kleypas kick. Loving her books.
Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with good or bad reviews?
Ugh. Yes. I’m okay with negative reviews if there is an explanation along with the rating. I hate getting one or two-star reviews with nothing. How do I know what to fix, if readers don’t tell me?
What advice do you have for new writers?
Keep going. It takes a lot of work. Constant. Work. I try to continually improve my craft by writing new books, trying different genres, getting involved in writing groups and attending conferences.
Lisa Acerbo is the author of numerous books including Wear White to Your Funeral. Two new releases will be available in 2018.
