Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Molly McLain. I’m from Wisconsin, am married, and a mom to three kiddos. I write steamy small town romance with blue collar heroes and spunky heroines.
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?
They’re all hard! The first book has to be just right to grab readers’ attention. Then the next books have to be similar, but different, too. Personally, I think I like first books better, because they set the premise for a new world and everything is fresh and new, but it’s also really fun to write cameos of previous in characters in subsequent books, too!
Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?
Don’t compare your author journey to others. Set goals that work for you and measure your success by those accomplishments, not what you see other authors doing.
On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?
I spend about two hours a day writing romance. I also write for my day job, too, so some days it’s really hard to spend any more time in front of my laptop.
Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.
This is like asking a mom to choose her favorite child! They’re all special for different reasons.
