Interview with McKenna James, Author of Inherit Love
13 Apr 2021
Today we’re interviewing both halves of the Mckenna James writing team.
What can you tell us about your new release, Inherit Love?
Mckenna: Inherit Love is a series of contemporary romance stand alone novels. We came up with the idea for the series one day when we were talking about how, in other genres like cozy mystery—
James: –and Hallmark movies.
Mckenna: Yes, in so many of those—you have a character who inherits something and their world changes. So we decided to write a series of books where an inheritance plays a major role in the story.
James: And they are all very different. In Inheritance Goals, the heroine inherits a football team, which makes her life complicated because the team’s quarterback is her ex-boyfriend. In Inheritance Reversal, which is an office romance, a woman who is a mere assistant inherits the company and becomes her hot boss’s boss.
Mckenna: We had a lot of fun writing them. Readers like them because they have some steamy scenes, but there’s also a sweetness to the stories that fans of Hallmark movies will enjoy.
What books are currently on your nightstand?
Mckenna: I’m reading The Yellow Wife by Sadeqa Johnson.
James: And I’m reading Lord of Chance by Erica Ridley. Also, we both just got The Heroine’s Journey by Gail Carriger, a book on writing that we’re both dying to read.
If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?
What makes your world go round? Why does it bring you joy?
Mckenna: My kittens. They are a year old now, but a stray cat had kittens in our garage during the pandemic, and we kept the momma and two of her kittens. Watching them grow up has brought our family so much joy. They keep us entertained.
James: I’m a dog person. Her cats are cute, but I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and they are my babies. We go on walks every day together and have a great time.
What scene from Inherit Love was your favorite to write?
Mckenna: The scene in Baby Inheritance where Valentina and Hudson come to an agreement to make a baby. It’s both awkward and sexy at the same time.
James: Probably the scene in Forgotten Inheritance where Roman realizes the hospital staff thinks Charlie is his wife and in a split second he decides to go along with it. There are so many complex emotions that run through him in that one scene, and the ramifications are so huge!
