Interview with Jiffy Kate, Author of The Brickwall and The Bombshell

22 Jun 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Brickwall and The Bombshell?

Mack and Greer’s story had been in the works for years. Even though this is a complete standalone, the characters originated in earlier books of this interconnected series. But the details of their story were actually inspired by a TikTok we watched a year or so ago. That’s where we got the idea for Greer to have a stalker. We hadn’t written that level of suspense in a long time and it was so much fun.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of The Brickwall and The Bombshell, what would they be?

Shivers by Ed Sheeran.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Contemporary Romance, and yes, it’s what we write. But we also REALLY love Romantic Fantasy… Fantasy Romance… yeah, that.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?


What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

There were two scenes we really looked forward to writing.

1) The scene where Mack and Greer take a bath together. It was so much more than being naked in a bathtub. It was a different level of intimacy and allowed them both to drop their walls and really get to know each other.

2) The scene where the stalker is revealed… that’s all we can say about that.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

We pick coffee mugs that inspire us or go along with what we’re writing. “You’ve got this. – Coffee”

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

This too shall pass.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Be you (at whatever cost) and follow your dreams.
