My guest today is Emily Walker, here to talk about His Boss Lady
1. Will you tell us a little about yourself? Please include a picture if you wish.
I work at my alma mater full time and write whenever I have a spare moment. I live in the mountains, literally on top of a mountain. I’m in graduate school for a masters in Human Resources. My first book published was a Zombie book soon to be released again through my publisher Beau Coup with which I now have three titles out, all of which have sequels in the works. I love being busy, running, and always learning.
2. Why did you start to write? Have you always longed to write a book or was there a trigger?
So the first time I really wrote was in my eleventh grade English class. I had read a lot of Fear Street books, a whole lot, and decided to write my own. It was an assignment for creative writing
3. What sort of books do you write? Why did you choose that particular genre?
I write a little of everything. Science Fiction because I love to read it, Horror, because I love to watch it, Romance occasionally when a great story pops in, and Fantasy – Paranormal stuff because it’s so much fun!!
4. How autobiographical are your stories?
Not very. Sometimes I use things I know about or little things that happen to me.
5. Have you a favourite setting for your stories? Why?
I find I really enjoy writing horror in the woods. I think it goes back to when I was in the 5th grade and Ms. Cumberlander told us a story about a skeleton that ate people in the woods, I’ve never been the same.
6. Do you ever fall for your characters?
That’s not something that’s happened.
7. Do your characters ever surprise you?
They do all the time, they can up and change my whole story. More than once I’ve had a character look at me (not literally, I’m not crazy, well not really) and yell PLOT TWIST.
8. How do you get yourself in the mood for writing?
I’m always ready to create something amazing (sometimes it’s not that great, sometimes it is) at all times. When I need a boost I have my seventh cup of black coffee for the day (had to break the creamer habit)
9. What is the strangest place you have written in?
The car on long trips, the parking lot of many places, the car dealership.
10. Have you ever experienced ‘writer’s block’ and how did you cope with it?
Yes, I just move on and write something else. It’s not ever good when I experience it on a deadline, but sometimes you just have to step back and take a minute.
11. Describe your perfect first date –
A walk in the park after sushi
12. If you could live anywhere in the world where would you choose and why?
The mountains because I love it up here. I don’t think I’d want to be anywhere except the mountains.
1. Chocolate or ice-cream? Chocolate
2. Favourite tipple. Vodka
3. Seaside or forest? That’s tough – Forest
4. Rain or sun? Sun
5. Christmas or birthday? Christmas
6. Elegant or comfortable clothes? Comfy
7. TV or cinema? TV
8. Laptop or notebook for writing? Laptop
9. Nail colour? Any pink
10. Dom, sub or switch? I don’t really think I prefer either
11. Bondage or spanking? Same answer
12. Leather or lace? Lace – My Fantasy Football team is called Football and Lace
Thank you so much for all the fun questions!!
Emma Michaels gets off on people calling her ma’am and fearing the sound of her four inch heels as she stomps by her employees’ offices. The intelligent female worked hard to make partner at Johnson, Franks, and Michaels and will not let anything distract her from work. With her path set firmly toward the future, she has no idea that a young intern is coming to derail her plans.
Tyler Higgins is proving to be a distraction that creates chaos and anxiety in Emma’s world. Will the young and handsome Higgins take the exec to school or has she met her match?
Tyler Higgins is a shark. The master of everything he touches, he comes from a long line of CEOs and self-starting businessmen. Landing his dream internship was icing on an already well-dressed cake, but shadowing a woman was not what he had in mind. Emma Michaels’ attitude about work drives him crazy, and he cannot help but test her every chance he gets. However, not wanting to shadow Emma does not stop Tyler from thinking of the naughty things he could do to the buxom brunette haired beauty. Yes, this is dangerous territory.
When she walked up beside him, their shoulders brushed, which normally would have been an insignificant occurrence, but just being that close to him, and then actually touching his shoulder, struck something within her. The next thing that happened only made it worse as they both reached for one of the drawings and grabbed each other’s hands. At this point, an electric current of awareness shot through her, every one of his fingers left an invisible impression on her hand and she jerked away from him.
“Sorry about that.” She tried regaining her composure as he turned and smiled, a piece of that hair he had so meticulously slicked back came loose. Her fingers itched to push it back in place, and she caught herself before she did just that. Get ahold of yourself, girl.
Thinking how attractive he was gave her conflicting feelings. No one had ever challenged her the way he did. She had pretty much always been intimidating to men. Her coworkers understood her need to be in control. Her boyfriends? Not so much. It had been a while since she had even dated, but he was off limits, and she was a professional with a job to do. Maybe that was why she found herself drawn to him. She had not let herself be attracted to anyone, or considered dating because she was so career-focused. Maybe that was the reason she was losing all control of her hormones.
