Guest Blog By Tonya Kappes (love her!!)

I am super excited to have author Tonya Kappes on my blog today!!  She is the sweetest person you will ever meet in your whole life.  I had the pleasure of meeting her at last years Reader Author Get Together in Ohio.  She was so sweet and friendly that I wanted to take her with me!  Tonya had a new release "Grooming Mr. Right" earlier this month.  Below is info on the book, as well as an interview with the lovely author.

Book Blurb:
Luvie Beiderman is blindsided when she is fired from her junior fashion design job in New York City and is forced to move back to her small town in Kentucky . . . under her parent's roof.
Being home isn't so bad, after all, Luvie started Primp My Pet Mobile Pet Spa and is dating one of her client's owner, hunky Jase Nelson.
When Luvie is offered her dream design job in New York City, she is forced to make a decision between a career she's always dreamed of or the new life she has created in her hometown with the man she loves.

 Interview with Tonya Kappes:
What attracted you to writing in the first place?
The idea that I could tell a story.
What genre are you most comfortable writing?
I consistently write in two genres: romance and mystery. I love them both. Once I finish a romance, I have to have a break and I get a chance to do that by starting a new mystery.
What was your favorite part of this book to write? Which part was the hardest?
I love writing the coming of age of the protagonist. I love developing that storyline. The hardest part was when my protag realized what was truly important in her life and what she believed was never the case.
Give your fans three fun facts that they may not already know about you.
I’m addicted to Red Hot candy. I order a large diet coke with extra ice in a stryofoam cup every single time I go to McDonalds. AND I’m scared of the dark.
Chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry?
Hands down, chocolate.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?
Pen, paper and my hubby
Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
It’s 285 pages that is filled with fun, love, laughter and coming of age.
So what’s next for you as an author? Any last words?
I’ve got another book coming out in a brand new mystery series, A GHOSTLY UNDERTAKING. Plus I just had two novels debut on USA TODAY Bestseller list, and I’m excited to see where that goes.
