Interview & Giveaway with Julie Ann Walker

OMG!!!! I can’t even tell you how excited I am today!!!! I mean SUPER excited…  
*tries to slow down my racing heart*  
Why you ask?  
Well my newest author crush is on the blog today.  
Did I mention how SUPER EXCITED  I am right now?????  Did I?  


Who might be my newest author crush?  


Why it is the amazingly talented and super cute Julie Ann Walker and her fabulous, I could not put the books (yes, I have read the 1st three books) down for anything, stayed up way to late, bawled my eye out and am totally in love with her Black Knight Inc series…  Okay so enough of me talking… Let me introduce you to Julie…… 

Julie, can you please share with us a little about yourself

JW: Ha!  Only a little?  Well, here goes… I grew up in rural Oklahoma riding horses and wearing cowgirl boots.  I received my degree in mathematics – yes, you read that right, mathematics.  Doesn’t quite gel with romance writing, does it?  I married my college sweetheart.  From Oklahoma, we moved to Michigan and then Chicago, and the Windy City is now my home.  I’m a recovering shoe-and-handbag-aholic – recovering, that is, until Nordstrom’s has another sale…  My favorite activity is riding my bicycle along the Lake Michigan shoreline.  I drink way too much coffee.  And, when I’m writing, my fifteen-year-old Labrador Retriever curls up around my feet.

Whew! Who knew a life could be condensed down to a few sentences?

Have you always wanted to be an author?

JW: My father calls me a natural-born story-teller.  As a kid, I was perpetually relating this anecdote or making up that story – lots of hand gestures included.  But, no, I didn’t always dream of being an author.  In fact, I fancied myself more of a reader than a writer.  But that’s not to say the stories weren’t in my head; they always were – at least that’s what I tell people to account for the pesky voices without admitting I’m completely cray-cray.  But, seriously, one day I decided to write one of those stories down and a thought kept spinning through my mind during the process.  That thought was, “this is what I was meant to do…”  HELL ON WHEELS was born and the rest, as they say, is history…

Can you share with us your typical writing day.  Is there anything you have to have while writing?

JW:  My typical writing day starts with coffee.  Then I sit down and take care of the business of writing, the answering of emails, phone calls, etc.  Afterward, I usually procrastinate a little and get on Twitter and Facebook and Pinterest.  *Wince*  Don’t tell my editor and agent.  And finally, sometime before lunch and after my third cup of coffee – did I mention I like coffee? – I dig in to my current work in progress.

Most challenging or rewarding part of writing?

JW:  Oh, by far the most challenging part of writing for me is actually getting the words on the page.  Like I said, the stories are already in my head, usually fully formed, so why bother taking the time to write them all down?  Oh, so you guys can read them?  Okay, I suppose… LOL!

As for the most rewarding part of writing, that would have to be the readers, people who  come up to me or email me and say they loved my book.  There’s nothing better than knowing you brought a little joy and entertainment into someone’s life.

Can you please tell us about your latest book(s)?

JW:  The second and third books in the Black Knights Inc. series are being released in the next couple of months.  IN RIDES TROUBLE, the story of BKI’s head hancho, Frank “Boss” Knight, and spunky mechanic, Becky “Rebel” Reichert, starts off in the middle of the Indian Ocean with Becky having been abducted by Somali pirates.  It’s a thrill-ride and Becky and Boss set the pages on fire.  The third installment, REV IT UP, centers around Michelle Carter and Jake “The Snake” Sommers.  Those two have a history that will make you laugh and cry in turn, and Michelle’s holding on to a secret so volatile there’s no way to avoid explosions.

How did you come with the idea for this story?

JW:  It’s total confession time here.  Because the idea for HELL ON WHEELS began with my two favorite fantasies, the military man and the man on a motorcycle.  We all know there’s nothing sexier than a guy in uniform and, for me, the concept of the rebel outlaw mounting up on a half ton of steel and heading for the open road is a total turn-on.  Once it occurred to me that there might be a way to combine the two, the story just wrote itself.  And is there anyone hotter than Nate?  I fan myself just thinking of him!

Can you share with us your current work in progress?

JW: I’m currently working on the fourth book in the Black Knights Inc. series.  It’s the story of smoking hot Cajun operator, Richard “Rock” Babineaux, and Vanessa Cordero, the sexy communications specialist who won’t take “no” for an answer.  It starts off in the jungles of Costa Rica and I can tell you this, it’s hot and steamy and oh-oh-oh so delicious.  I can’t wait for everyone to read it because I’m having an absolute blast writing it!

Who are some of your favorite authors?
JW:  I love Suzanne Brockmann.  Her stories are complex and intricate.  I’m a total fan-girl.  Stephen King can raise the hairs on my arm like no other, and John Grisham is always a pre-order for me.

Do you feel that any of your favorite authors have inspired your writing style?
JW:  Oh, I definitely think Suz Brockmann is an inspiration.  Her characters are so diverse and unique.  And I absolutely love the way she handles internal dialogue.  Plus, her pop-culture references always resonate with me.  (Probably because I watch way too much TV.  Shhhh.  Don’t tell my mother.)

What is in your To Read Pile that you are dying to start or upcoming release you can’t wait for?
JW:  My To Be Read Pile?  Oh, you mean that tower of books over in the corner?  The one that will likely kill my dog if he brushes against it and it falls on him?  Ooph.  Where to begin?  I guess I’ll start by saying that last year I came upon an article about the 100 Best Works of Fiction of the 20th century, and I’ve been endeavoring to work my way through that list ever since.  So currently, I have waiting for me, BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Huxley, BELOVED by Toni Morrison, and A FAREWELL TO ARMS by Ernest Hemingway…

Is there anything else you would like to add?

JW: Thank you so much for having me on Books-n-Kisses.  This has been wonderful.  Now I’m off to get another cup of coffee!

 

HELL ON WHEELS BY JULIE ANN WALKER – IN STORES AUGUST 2012

Black Knights Inc.—Behind the facade of their tricked–out motorcycle shop is an elite special ops team assigned the jobs too hot for anyone else to handle.

Hold On Tight…

Ex–Marine Nate “Ghost” Weller is an expert at keeping his cool—and his distance—which makes him one hell of a sniper. It’s also how he keeps his feelings for Ali Morgan in check. Sweet, sexy Ali has always revved his engine, but she’s his best friend’s baby sister…and totally off limits.

Rough Road Ahead

Ali’s never seen anything sexier than Nate Weller straddling his custom Harley—or the flash of danger in his eyes when she tells him she’s in trouble. First something happened to her brother, and now she’s become the target of a nasty international organization. With Nate, her life is in the most capable hands possible—but her heart is another story altogether.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Deep in the heart of the Windy City, three things can be found at Julie Ann Walker’s fingertips: a keyboard, a carafe of coffee, and a sleepy yellow Labrador retriever.  They, along with her ever-patient husband, keep her grounded as her imagination flies high. Look for the next two books in her fast-paced series: In Rides Trouble (September 2012) and Rev It Up (October 2012). For more information, please visit www.julieannwalker.com or follow her on Facebook www.facebook.com/jawalkerauthor or Twitter @JAWalkerAuthor.

      TOTALLY!!!! How could I resist having you on the blog!!!!

      Love ya girl!!!

  3. Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 6:43 am #

    Erm… that would be BOOKS-n-Kisses. What the heck is a bood? My spell check didn’t pick it up. O.o

    • Kelly August 16, 2012 at 8:25 am #

      BWHAHAHAHAHAHA :)

  4. Kat August 16, 2012 at 7:13 am #

    Chicago is a great city…I call it my home town ( or as much of one as a traveling former Air Force brat can have). I was just there a little over a week ago. What is your favorite thing about Chicago? Me, it’s that it is a Mecca for fantastic food. I had Indian, Thai, Italian…and so much more while I was there. ( a Starbucks on every corner is a close second) :-)

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 7:37 am #

      You’re not kidding! The food here is fabulous. (Just ask the fifteen pounds I’ve gained since moving here six years ago.) I mean, deep dish pizza, traditional Chicago hot dogs, and Garrett’s popcorn? Does it get any more fattening or delicious?

      But if I had to pick a favorite thing about the city, I’d have to say summers. Bike riding on the lake. Free concerts in the park. Fireworks at Navy Pier every Wednesday and Saturday night. It’s like three months of outdoorsy fun that helps me forget winter is coming on like a frigid bat outa hell. Now guess what my most UN-favorite thing about Chicago is? LOL!

      • Kat August 16, 2012 at 8:51 am #

        I’m guessing it’s the winters, right? I could lie and say that’s what perpetuated our move to Florida, but that’s a lie. Wanderlust and a job opportunity set in… Summertimes are tons of fun, especially if you live in the heart of the city. There’s always something going on. My husband’s addiction is Giordano’s deep dish. I’ve been getting hooked on Indian from The India House. Odd little side note, my grandfather gave Mr Portillo his first loan for those awesome Chicago style dogs. I always have to have an Italian beef from there when I come back. (And I prefer to go in the summertime, usually with a concert stop at Ravinia…complete with Brie and fruit and crackers and wine… :-))

        As for your book, Love It!

        • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 9:36 am #

          Holy crap! Portillo’s is a freakin’ institution. And you get to say you (your family) helped start it all! How cool is that? 😀

  5. Maria D. August 16, 2012 at 7:19 am #

    Fun interview! I have Hell On Wheels on my Kindle and can’t wait to read it!

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 7:38 am #

      Yay! No better words an author can hear than, “I bought your book.” Unless, of course, it’s, “I’m going to buy ALL of your books!” Hehehe! Happy reading!

  6. Lona Stringer August 16, 2012 at 7:44 am #

    Great interview, book sounds great and I really like the cover. Thx for giveaway.

    blinkysthebest at aol dot com

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 7:59 am #

      Yes, isn’t that cover divine? That motorcycle is real, by the way. Freakshow Choppers was so cool about letting me use it for my cover. In fact, the entire bike building community has been awesome about sharing their work with me. They may look all burly and gruff, but that just covers hearts of pure gold!

  7. Yadira A. August 16, 2012 at 7:50 am #

    Hi Julie!
    Those are two of my favorite fantasies too… the military man and the man on a motorcycle:) Already on the fourth book? Well you can bet I am reading the Black Knights Inc. series and soon!

  8. Jennifer Bielman August 16, 2012 at 7:56 am #

    Great interview. I love me some John Grisham and Stephen King too.

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 8:02 am #

      I got hooked on Stephen King when I was sixteen and read CHRISTINE. I slept on the couch for a month afterward because I was too frightened to sleep in my bedroom by myself. That man has a way with words that absolutely scares the bejeezus out of me. I love it! 😉

  9. Danni T August 16, 2012 at 7:57 am #

    I love the synopsis for this book. One of my favorite themes is the best friends sister/or brother. It makes things very interesting. I love Suzanne Brockmann books too! Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. Leagh August 16, 2012 at 8:09 am #

    Ok, seriously?!?!? Hot guys, motorcycles, special ops, I mean what more can a girl ask for? I am definitely going to check this one out! Thanks BNK for the amazing recommendation and thanks to Julie Ann Walker for visiting so we can get to know you better!

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 8:35 am #

      Thank YOU for stopping by to get to know me. And, yes, what more COULD a girl want than hot guys, spec-ops, and motorcycles? Unless of course… if all three were covered in chocolate. :-)

  11. Melanie Rovak August 16, 2012 at 8:09 am #

    I was just wondering who is your favorite character to write? And the the story come to you all at once or in bits and pieces? Thank you for the giveaway your books sound great!

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 8:41 am #

      I loved writing Becky, the smack-talking motorcycle designer. She takes no guff, tells it like it is, and isn’t afraid to take chances. Who WOULDN’T love to write a character like that? But right now, I’m having a blast with Rock’s character. He’s the hero of book 4 and he’s Cajun – so sexy – honorable, heroic, and very humble at the same time. Plus he has some baggage and I always like to torture my heroes with baggage.

      As for how the stories come to me, whether all at once or bits and pieces, I’d have to say it’s a little of both. The main concept of the story comes to me all at once, the highlights, if you will. But the little things, the details that make a book so fun, come to me as I’m writing.

      Thanks for the wonderful questions!

  12. chris bails August 16, 2012 at 8:21 am #

    Great post. This is a new to me author. I love to read and always lookin.g for new authors. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I just have to say thank you very much for introducing me to Julie! It sounds fantastic and it’s definately going on my TBR list.

    Thanks again,
    Sebrina

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 9:38 am #

      Sweet! Nothing better than going on someone’s TBR list. Unless, it’s when your book is read and then your NEXT story gets added to the TBR list… :-)

  17. Diane Sallans August 16, 2012 at 9:10 am #

    haven’t read about a “biker” in a while – I think this is the one to try – and a series too!

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 9:39 am #

      Well, not to toot my own horn or anything *toot, toot* but I do write some pretty delicious bikers. Huzzah!

  18. Victoria Zumbrum August 16, 2012 at 9:18 am #

    I really want to read this book. It sounds very good. Thanks for the giveaway.

  19. Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 9:40 am #

    Good luck with the giveaway. I wish there were 100 copies to win! But my publisher would probably frown over that… LOL!

  20. Emily August 16, 2012 at 9:47 am #

    I can’t wait to read this book, it sounds like a sizzler.

  21. Raonaid Luckwell August 16, 2012 at 9:56 am #

    As Julie Ann Walker knows I am currently reading Hell on Wheels ( hehe I am the one that requested Ozzie to sing Meatloaf’s Paradise by the Dashboard Light!) Oh I am so enjoying this. And I am totally forming a hardcore crush on Ozzie. He’s gotta be my favorite.

    And loved the movie references (Ozzie would be giving me the eye because I never seen that Mel Gibson movie he mentioned where he proposed?)

    And you are right… hot sexy male on a Harley. Rawr. Maybe that’s why I like a certain character on The Walking Dead… I started dubbing him “White Knight on the Harley”. Hehe!

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 10:07 am #

      You’re a Walking Dead fan, too? Woman, we have to meet. Similar taste in music AND televisions shows… This must be fate! 😀

  22. Laurie August 16, 2012 at 9:58 am #

    Oh, I’m so looking forward to reading these! Something definitely sexy about a motorcycle riding military hottie!

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 10:07 am #

      Isn’t there, though? It’s like a double whammy. BAM!

  23. Linda August 16, 2012 at 10:04 am #

    Love the interview and giveaway, =) it´s already on my TBR list!

    best wishes, Linda xo

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 11:26 am #

      So happy to hear it’s on your TBR, and thanks for the happy wishes! I’ll take all of those that I can get!

  24. Allie Motherway August 16, 2012 at 10:10 am #

    Fantastic interview. I have this as a “must read”. I LOVE the cover art

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 11:27 am #

      I was a little nervous about the cover. So many romantic suspense books have a shirtless guy on them that I thought people would look at this cover and think the book must be tame. And it is definitely NOT that!

  25. Patsy Hagen August 16, 2012 at 10:33 am #

    Love the cover! Thank you for the interview and the giveaway.

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 11:27 am #

      More cover love! I’m eating it up! Good luck in the giveaway!

  26. Millie McClain August 16, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

    Great interview. Love King! Grisham is a fav too.

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 2:05 pm #

      I know, right? Everybody expects me to only read romance since I’m a romance writer. But I love ALL forms of literature. Heck, I’m even one to appreciate graffiti and crude poetry carved into the wet sand at the beach! LOL!

  27. orchid7 August 16, 2012 at 12:44 pm #

    Hell On Wheels sounds really good! And that is a great cover- it really gets your imagination going… Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

      If you think that cover revs your engine, just wait until you read the book. Vroom! Vroom! 😉 Good luck in the giveaway!

    looking forward to reading this

    • Julie Ann Walker August 16, 2012 at 8:02 pm #

      Yes. Hot guy. Hot bike. Hot city. It’s like a trifecta of hotness! LOL!

    Hi! I’m from Ada, OK and my current WIP is set in a town that has a little bit of Ada and Pauls Valley (my mom’s hometown) in it. I just hope the relatives and friends don’t take offense. :)

    Great interview and don’t forget Marshall Field’s, I mean Macy’s now. Grrr….loved just loved Marshall Field’s. Chicago is a great town and in some ways better than New York City. The people are friendlier.

    Congratulations on the release and you have a new fan for life.

    Julie…you MUST be my long, lost twin!!! You LOVE coffee (I would DIE without it), you love men in uniform and riding motorcycles (nothing hotter), you have a HUGE TBR list (thank goodness I have big dogs so the pile won’t kill them but just bury them), and you LOVE coffee! :)

    Thanks for the great interview! I have read many enthusiastic reviews about your new book, and this series is on my wishlist. Do they all drive the same brand of motorcycle, or different brands?

    • Julie Ann Walker August 17, 2012 at 7:58 am #

      Each of their motorcycles are custom built. So the frames/engines/wheels/front forks/pretty much everything can come from any manufacturer. The bikes themselves are total works of art. Just check out the cover! Whewee!

  46. Joanne B August 17, 2012 at 5:43 am #

    Congrats on the new release. This book sounds fantastic. Can’t wait to read it.

    • Julie Ann Walker August 17, 2012 at 9:44 am #

      NOTHING but great things??? Now, that can’t be true! I’m sure my potty-mouthed BKI boys have offended SOMEONE out there. Hahaha! But it wouldn’t be realistic if they didn’t curse like sailors, right? I mean, a lot of them actually WERE sailors – SEALs- before joining Black Knights Inc.

      Thanks for commenting and, as always, happy reading!

    From all the interviews, all the blurbs and all the reviews I’ve read about this series so far, I can’t wait to dig in to it too. I wonder if there’s already a self help group out there. Somehow I have a feeling that the Black Knights Inc. leave a reader breathless, boneless and craving more. Time to clear some room on my book shelves :)

      Aren’t those sketches divine? A local Chicago artist did those for me. And he’ll be adding more for each book release, so check back next April when BK 4 hits the shelves!!!
