Interview with Krissy Daniels, author of L.O.V.E
30 Jun 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, L.O.V.E.?
L.O.V.E. is a story about fate, integrity, and faithfulness. Natalie and Cole share an undeniable attraction. Unfortunately, they’re committed to other people. Hard as they try to resist temptation, life keeps bringing them together — through friends, family, and very extraordinary events. Their love story is a bumpy ride, for sure. I’ve never put two characters through so much turmoil to be together.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I’ve always loved storytelling. My mom and my childhood best friend relentlessly encouraged me to write books. It wasn’t until after my children were in grade school that I wrote my first novel. I wasn’t sure what to do with my manuscript, so I reached out to an old high school classmate, Rebecca Zanetti, who had recently published. She encouraged me to join RWA and a local chapter, so I did. And the rest is history.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
That’s an impossible question to answer. I read and fall in love with too many books.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask
I would ask J.R. Ward what she has against baby powder.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
I love, love, love all the different characters I get to become while writing. I get to escape into different worlds, and explore all the dark, dirty, quirky, beautiful personalities.
What is a typical day like for you?
Day job. Come home and write. Take care of household duties when I can. Read. Sleep. Repeat.
What scene from L.O.V.E. was your favorite to write?
Oh, Lordy. Tough question. I have a few. The one that stands out most, I suppose, is when Cole shows up drunk on Natalie’s doorstep. This scene is pivotal because Natalie has a tough choice to make. She can give in to temptation and get revenge on her childhood tormentor, or she can walk away and sacrifice her best friend and family and the city she loves so that Cole can move on and be happy with his fiancé.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
Last year, my motto was “Fuck it.” This year? “Give it to God.” All my burdens, and fears, even my joys and celebrations. I’m not strong enough to carry them most of the time, and thank goodness I don’t have to.
