Rita Sawyer Author Interview & Giveaway!

Let's all give the wonderful Rita Sawyer a great big Diva welcome. Also thanks again for stopping by today!

Would you like to start off by telling us a little bit about yourself? Well I love to laugh, read, and cook. I have three kids. My husband and I have been married for more than half my life to a wonderful guy.

What is one thing about you that your readers would find surprising or never guess about you? I used to be a lunch lady for the public school system here in Massachusetts.

Can you share anything interesting about a current work in progress, perhaps an exciting teaser? Right now I’m working To Protect The Heart Of A Brazen Woman, book 6 in the Brazen Sister Series.  All I can say is Bobbie and Jake have been dancing around each other long enough, but Bobbie isn’t about to make things easy for Jake.

If you were to write yourself into one of your books which would it be, what role would you pick and why? I think I’d like to be Bobbie from my Brazen Sister Series. She smart, funny, and knows how to keep a secret when it’s worth it.

If you could have a romantic dinner with one of your heroes which one would it be and why? I think it would be Tyler. I have a thing for the strong silent type.

How do you spend your down time between edits, deadlines, writing and creating new and fascinating books? Do have a favorite pastime to fill you spare time with? When I have the time I love watching movies. Classic old movies like Yours, Mine, and Ours or new flicks like The Wedding Date.

How did you celebrate the publishing of your first book? My husband took the whole family out for Chinese food.

What have you read and loved recently? Lydia Dare’s werewolves and vampires series were full of amazingly rich characters.

The Brazen sisters have a wonder and very close bond. Was there anything in your life that reflected into this? Do you have siblings? I come from a big family. There are seven of us kids, 5 girls and 2 boys. So I drew on some of the emotions and experience I have there.

I’ve noticed that the very handsome Mitchell fellas seem to be making more and more appearances in your Brazen books. Are you thinking about giving them their own series? Isn’t it strange? When the first Mitchell, Oliver popped in I was like hmm… he gave it a little flair. Then when Kyle appeared it was more of a slap upside my head. Now they all seem to be waiting not so patiently to have their stories told.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting you at two different book conventions. What are your 2012 convention plans? Where can fans stalk you? For 2012 I’ll definitely be attending RomFest. While there I’ll be sponsoring a Naughty Bingo party with fellow author Adele Quinn.  Anyone looking to find out more about me or my books can stop by And if they want to hear my random thoughts I’m on Facebook and Twitter @ritasawyer.

Rita has been kind enough to offer a lucky reader an eBook of a new anthology of romantic comdies that one of her publishers has bundled, Being Naughty Can be Fun. Just comment below with email address for your chance to win. I will announce the winner Sunday January 8!

And since I had the eureka moment of figuring out how to linky the pics you can click on any pic and be taken to that books page to find out all the detail about the book!
