Kimberly Readnour

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hello! I’m Kimberly Readnour writer of sports and small town romances. I flippin’ love romance and getting lost into fictional worlds. But did you know I first started in young adult? I wrote my first series for my daughter and never thought anyone else would read them. If you read any of my work and hate it, you can blame her for pushing me to publish. She kept after me for four years before I took the plunge. But my heart was always with romance, so after I completed the series for her, I switched genres and never looked back.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

For me, it’s harder to write the last book of the series. By the time I get to the last one, I’ve grown attached to the characters and hate letting go.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

All the books in my series are standalones at the moment, so each couple has their own story. Then I try to mix it up with different tropes and such. I also bounce between sports and small town romances, so I don’t get burned out on one category.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

There is so much advice out there. You really need to find what works for you and not try to do everything that is told to you. Not all advice will work for you, except ending a romance book with a HEA. That’s a must.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

I still work full time, so my time is limited. I steal time in the morning before I leave for work and try to work on the story whenever there is downtime. And yes, I’m always late to work. lol. But I’m too drained by the time I come home to work during the evening, so morning it is!

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

I have so many, but I always fall back to Jax Carrigan from Swing for the Fences. He’s so patient with Jocelyn and takes her kids into consideration with every decision. They are perfect for each other despite the rough road it took to get there.

What is your definition of success?

Success to me means putting out books that people enjoy. If I can bring joy to people or make them feel, then I’ve done my job.

Do you have anything you want to share that didn’t fit on one of these questions?

Thanks for having me join this year! I’m looking forward to this signing.
