Interview with Nicole Snow, author of Man Enough
13 Mar 2018
What can you tell us about your new release, Man Enough?
Man Enough is a single dad romance with some really alpha-licious love scenes and a shocker mystery, but it’s also a family story at heart. I love a man who’s been through hell and still has a good soul underneath. That’s my Rex, who finds himself in a dire predicament the day he shows up at Tabby’s little lodge. He’ll do anything for his family. Everything to complete it. He just doesn’t know he’s met the perfect woman to help him fight his demons. When he figures it out, sparks fly like the Fourth of July.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
So many people! I think deep down I was influenced by some really amazing teachers. I had a great English teacher my last couple of years of high school. She was harsh when it came to drilling words and handing out homework, but also introduced us to a lot of styles and the greats. Not to mention discipline in writing. I fell in love with literature early on and ten years later decided to try my hand at making beautiful words. Thankfully, a lot of people like them.
You’re hosting a literary dinner party. Which three writers are invited?
Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King, and Kristen Ashley. Crazy trio, right? But there’s a reason!
Ashley for her gorgeous, irresistible, and inspiring alpha heroes. King for his amazingly prolific career. Poe for his tortured artist’s soul.
Three things that speak straight to my heart in writing.
Which books would we be surprised to find on your shelves?
Big stacks of dense niche history texts. That’s what I went to school for, way back in the day, and I’ve never fallen out of love with it. Understanding the past is incredibly important. I draw inspiration from the heroes, the women, and the hardships that happened long before I was born.
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The perfect storm when good words come together. You can’t change the weather, but you can control the lightning on the pages. Words are the bones of my characters’ souls. I always try to make them shine.
What’s a typical day like for you?
Coffee. Then words. Then a walk if it’s nice out. Then more words. Then crashing out with a good book or my favorite Netflix show to recharge. Sometimes with a cat next to me and a fire going. Almost the dream.
What scene in Man Enough was your favorite to write?
When Tabby meets Rex and his adorable kids! She doesn’t have a clue what she’s gotten herself into the second she’s pulled face-to-face with a growly, tortured, overprotective stranger. Best part is, he doesn’t either. But you just know something amazing is about to begin.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
All glory is fleeting… but doesn’t it feel good?
