Interview with Krissy Daniels, author of Truck Stop Titan
03 Dec 2019
What can you tell us about your new release, Truck Stop Titan?
Dane Reynolds is a criminal who wants to be free of the MC life. He stumbles upon a child prisoner and takes her to a rescue home for trafficked children. Dane forms a bond with the child, and eventually with her quirky aunt who has her own set of issues. As with all of the books in the series, Titan is a little dark, a little dirty, pulls at your heartstrings, and of course, wraps up the series with a satisfying HEA.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I’ve been in love with storytelling for as long as I could hold a pencil. Despite encouragement from teachers, family, and friends, I never considered making a career of writing. It wasn’t until my children were in school that I wrote my first novel. A few years back, I learned that a former high school classmate, Rebecca Zanetti had written a series. I was so excited, I bought and devoured all of her books. Then I reached out and said, “Hey, I wrote a book. What do I do now?” Becky was so gracious, thank God. She offered a ton of advice, then encouraged me to join RWA and my local chapter. I joined. A few months later, I signed my first contract.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
That’s an impossible question to answer because I read so many books —mostly romance— and every couple of months, I have a new favorite. I do have a list of favorite series: In The Company Of Killers by J.A. Redmerski. The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward. The Deliver Series by Pam Godwin. The Corruption Series by C.D. Reiss. The Sin Brother series by Rebecca Zanetti.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
I won’t lie. This could never happen. I’ve met a couple of my favorite authors over the years and the moment I’m in their presence, I turn into a blubbering mess. That being said, I would ask J.R. Ward what she has against baby powder.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
I love this question. My favorite thing about writing is getting lost in the characters. Becoming someone else. Sweet and innocent. Dark and disturbing. Young or old. I get to live hundreds of crazy adventures through my characters.
What is a typical day like for you?
My life in a nutshell? Chaotic and boring. Work the day job to support my writing career. Come home. Herd the dogs. Take care of the household duties. Take care of the wifely duties *wink, wink*. My children are self sufficient, so there isn’t much parenting required of me anymore, but they still need attention. Squeeze in as much writing time as I can before I pass out.
What scene in Truck Stop Titan was your favorite to write?
The scene when Dane confesses his sins to James, unaware that Tango is listening. That scene wraps up unanswered questions from the long and volatile relationship between Dane, Tango, and Slade throughout the series.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
After a couple of challenging years, my husband and I decided that “Fuck it” would be our new motto. Can I say that? If not, apologies. But it’s amazing how many situations (good or bad) those two words have gotten me into, or out of.
