Interview with Lark Avery, author of Bossy Biker

15 Apr 2019

What can you tell us about your new release, Bossy Biker?

Bossy Biker is so much fun! The moment Raider rolls into town and claps eyes on Blossom, readers are in for a wild ride. I think he knows he’s in trouble the second he finds her serving pie in her diner while wearing a wedding dress. Throw in a cast of loving but nosy townspeople, sex that’s hotter than anything coming out of Blossom’s oven, and a plethora of cheesy pie puns and you’ll find a book that you can’t put down until well past the happily ever after.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I became an author because I had to get all these stories running through my head out! I’ve found the more I write, the faster my brain creates new plots and characters. It’s less a problem of coming up with new ideas, and more digging through and to find the best ones. I’ve always loved to read, too, which has been a big influence. I want to create the same escape into stories that I love as a reader.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

Tough to narrow it down to 5, but here are the first that come to mind: Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books, Fifty Shades of Grey, Kristen Ashley’s Rock Chick series, JD Robb’s In Death series, and Penny Reid’s Knitting in the City series.

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

Christian Grey and “Your red room or mine?”

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

My favorite thing about writing is that I get to live vicariously through my characters. I can walk away from the wall of laundry my family piled up or the car that’s making that noise again, and dive head first into some crazy antics and wild adventures on the pages of my books. And I absolutely LOVE knowing I can give my readers that same escape hatch.

What is a typical day like for you?

It usually begins with hitting the snooze button one time too many and scrambling to get up and get the family fed, clothed and out the door before they miss buses, carpools, or commuter trains and have to stay home with me for the rest of the day. I workout for about an hour. Okay, it’s less a workout and more my dogs dragging me through the neighborhood as if they’re trying out for the Iditarod. But hey, it gets my heart rate up, so it counts, right?

Then it’s time to get down to serious business. I spend the afternoon fueling myself with a combination of sugar and caffeine with the occasional salad thrown in to appease the gods of good health while I work on coming up with over-the-top romance plots and doing my best to get the words on the page to match the pictures in my head. No easy feat! And by the time my family rolls in, I’m usually ready for a nap.

Evenings are family time. A mix of fun, games, and a bit of nagging to get homework done before I get to bed so I can do it all again the next day.

What scene in Bossy Biker was your favorite to write?

Bossy Biker might be my favorite book I’ve written so far, so it’s tough to pick just one scene. But if I have to choose, it’s when Raider thinks he’s going to protect Blossom from the town full of busybodies and instead sees that she has a bossy side of her own. While I think Raider fell for her at first sight, this is probably the moment he knew for sure that he loved her. I think all my favorite things about my books are in this scene—humor, heat, sexual tension, and all the feels.

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

There’s no problem that can’t be solved with a sense of humor or a pair of fuzzy handcuffs.
