Lacie Nation ~ Courageous Dare ~ Contemporary Military Romancee

Hello Lacie, welcome. We’re here talking about Lacie’s latest release, Courageous Dare, a contemporary military romance. Before we get started with the interview, tell us a little about you, Lacie:

My name is Lacie, I live in Columbus, Ga with my wonderful boyfriend. I have lived in Georgia for most of my life. I write when I am mad, sad, happy, or well…feeling pretty much any emotion. I write from a very personal place; there are a lot of things in my writing that I have been through and I add aspects of my own family and friends into my work.
My family and friends are my rock and if it weren't for them I would have given up on getting published a long time ago.

Well, we’re more than thankful for your friends and family…and they supported you in your writing endeavor. Our win ;) Let’s get going on those questions…

KDR ~ Please tell us how the idea came to you for Courageous Dare. Please include all the fun details.

LN ~ I had the idea for the dare while I was cooking dinner. I knew I wanted them to have an instant connection, but I also wanted there to be a challenge for them. Then I pictured couples back during WWII and thought I’d put a modern spin on those whirl wind romances.

KDR ~ Give us some insight into Baylee Crawford. What’s a bit of her back story?

LN ~ Baylee is the person in her family that always knows what to say or do or how to handle a situation. She’s strong and independent and the light in her family’s eye.

KDR ~ Who is Baylee to Nash? Can you give us a bit about the first time they met each other?

LN ~ LOL…well considering the first time they meet is at a party during a game of truth or dare its a little risqué. However, when Jack realizes how he feels about Baylee, he loves her deeply and completely.

KDR ~ Why this location? Anything in particular in real-life that made you select it?

LN ~ I live in GA and have always loved it. There’s something very charming about small towns where everyone knows everyone. I have also always loved horses so I threw that in there as well. Horses are very freeing and during the hardest parts of my life, horses have always been there.

KDR ~ Which scene was your favorite to write? Can you share a little of it?

LN ~ Oh there were so many of them. In all honesty I would have to say, as sad as it is, my favorite scene was the notification. Without giving too much away, when Baylee and her family are notified of a loved one being killed in action, I put so much emotion into that scene I had to lay down after I wrote it. I would have to say I’m the most proud of that scene.

KDR ~ Sounds like a heart-touching scene, Lacie.

Please share anything else about this story you’d like ~ maybe a difficult scene or character ~ someone or something not cooperating.

LN ~ I can say this story nearly wrote itself. I fell in love with the characters because they are so close to my family. I tend to use little bits and pieces of my family and friends.

KDR ~ What are you working on now?

LN ~ I’m working on a story called The Weeping Willow Tree. It’s early on, but I love it so far.

KDR ~ Where can we find you? List all of your links.

Kay Dee Royal said... look so happy in your picture, it makes me smile. Thanks for being here today. I brought you a cappiccino.

Here's another little question for you...where's your favorite place to write...and do you have any writing rituals you do to make it the ultimate writing time (like fragrant candles, a certain music, a special chair or window view)?
