Introducing Harlequin Historical December Debut Author: Kathryn Albright



Kathryn Albright comes from a unique family—her father, a Navy “fly-boy,” built two of his own planes in the garage of their San Diego home. Her mother is a world-renowned doll restoration artist. (She corrected Kathryn when she called her a “doll doctor.”) So you see, her writing career is really quite tame.
Her dreams of becoming a published writer took root when her children were young and she entered a national magazine contest and placed with a short story. Since then she has had non-fiction articles published in the field of nursing and writing along with several fiction contest finals. When she sent The Light Keeper, her first completed full-length manuscript, to the 2005 Golden Heart Contest, it made it to the finals in the short historical category and was picked up by Harlequin Historicals for publication. The title? The Angel and the Outlaw.
Along with her fiction writing career, she works as an obstetrical nurse and sonographer for high risk pregnancies.
Currently, she lives in the Midwest with her husband and sons. And she has granted Harlequin Historical Authors this interview, giving insight into her writing, and her plans for the future.
Although many writers know they want to be a writer from an early age, was there something in particular that made you decide to pursue your dream?
For the longest time I didn’t think I had enough life experience to create a story that would resonate with readers. Good stories always captured me and drew me into their “alternate universe,” and I yearned to be able to do that. I remember reading Morning Glory by LaVyrle Spencer and thinking “if only I could write like this.” Slowly the desire evolved into learning the craft and then trying.
When I did put pen to paper I started writing contemporary stories, but found it wasn’t my “voice.” Then Stuart’s ship sequence in The Angel and the Outlaw came to me full-blown one day and I just had to get it down on paper to keep if from rattling around in my head. From there, the rest of the story emerged in fits and starts.
How long after you first started submitting did it take for you to have your first book accepted?
This is the first book I ever submitted, and although it did well in several smaller contests, I never sent it to a publisher until it made the finals in the 2005 Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Contest for unpublished writers. It took about eighteen months for it to be accepted after that.
Can you share a special recipe? Either one that your characters make in your latest book, or one that you often make?
Rachel and Hannah do bake chocolate chip cookies at the light house, however, here is a different recipe that my husband and I enjoy frequently. We both love soups, especially now that the weather is cooling off toward winter and this is so easy and quick. It goes well with a hearty slice of Italian or French bread.

TOMATO-CHEESE TORTELLINI SOUP
1 can stewed tomatoes (with Italian seasonings)
2 cans chicken broth.
12-16oz bag frozen cheese tortellini
2 small zucchini, sliced.
¼ tsp. pepper
Combine first two ingredients in saucepan and bring to boil. Add tortellini, zucchini and pepper and bring again to boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 7-8 minutes until pasta and zucchini are tender. Enjoy!

What attracts you to your time period?
It was a time that bred such individuality in people. Life was tougher and rougher. It took strong men and women to get through it. So much was happening in this country as people pushed from the east coast to the west in pursuit of their dreams.

Writers often use photos of movie or tv stars for inspiration. Who has been the inspiration for some of your heroes?
Rene Lavan, Gerard Butler, Antonio Banderas, Kurt Russell, Brad Pitt.

Who are some of your favorite romance authors?
LaVyrle Spencer, Kathleen Woodiwiess. More currently, I’ve enjoyed Cindy Gerard, Lisa Plumley, Elizabeth Lane and Stacey Kayne.

When you are not writing, what do you do?
I enjoy traveling to see family. They are scattered all over the United States and I love visiting them and learning about the history of their locale. I also enjoy going to movies and doing cross-stitch. I’m currently working madly on a Christmas stocking that I hope to get done before December 25th.

What are some of your favourite movies?
The Man From Snowy River, Pride and Prejudice (2006), The Outsider (HBO movie of Penelope Williamson’s book), Underworld, The 13th Warrior, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and on a lighter note, Just Like Heaven and Hairspray.


What does your writing cave look like? I write at a desk in my bedroom. It is my sanctuary—the one room I can shut the door and keep out the noise and chaos of a growing family (and dog and cats—although they do sit right on the other side of the door waiting for me to emerge.) Over my desk, I have a painting of the lighthouse that was the setting of this first book and a quote by Annie Danielson: Home is where your story begins. It’s true on so many levels.

What is it about the heroes from that time period that excites you?
What’s not to like about a man in jeans and a hat? (Shirt optional, but if on preferably stretched over broad shoulders ) Western heroes have their own brand of “mysterious.” Tall and brooding—they have an inner strength, intelligence and self-awareness—and usually a few secrets they can’t completely resolve which makes them richer characters, not completely good and not completely bad. They are protectors, champions, and when finally brought to love, they commit completely.
I tend to like the underdog or the anti-hero—the man that suddenly rises to do what is necessary. I think you can find men like that in any time period—even fantasy such as Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in the original X-Men movie. It is harder for them. They must draw from deep inside themselves to meet the challenge—and I think that makes them more heroic in the end.

What is the worst thing about being a writer?
Nothing! It is all good!

What is the biggest challenge you face when you are writing a book? The beginning, middle or end?
The beginning and end quickly come into focus for me, but it is the middle that I have trouble corralling into place. It either wants to go off on a tangent because of an interesting subplot, or it wants to drag. And I always get lost in the fascinating research—a hazard for many writers.

Can you tell us about your future books?
Sure. I have several that are “lurking” in my mind, begging to be written. Currently, I am working on a story that takes place in Texas. I really like my hero and heroine –I’m picturing Catherine Zeta Jones and Gerard Butler. I don’t want to say too much about the plot just yet, but it will be a wilder, more passionate tale than my first book.

Many thanks for visiting Kathryn. You can read an extract from The Angel and the Outlaw here. It can be purchased from e-harlequin in both print and ebook versions and will be available in all good retail stores in December. Amazon will also have it in the Kindle version of ebooks in December.

A Bounty Hunter's Life



My November release Bodine's Bounty is set in western times, circa 1882. When I was doing my research for the story, I learned some surprising facts about bounty hunters and what the west was like back in those days. In the story, my hero Bodine is secretly hired to protect a runaway heiress on a mission all her own. He thinks the job frivilous but learns quickly the task is much more difficult than anyone could have predicted - Emma Marie Rourke is a strong and determined young woman. With his brother's killer on the loose, Bodine can't wait to finish his job with Emma so he can pursue the outlaw responsible for his death.






Did you know:

Bounty hunters were never paid on the spot for turning in their prisoner. Because of the red tape involved the bounty hunter would leave his address and have to wait for his payment.

Bounty hunters names were never recorded- anonimity meant survival.

The average bounty for a prisoner brought in was $100 to $300 but some ranged as high as $500.
The highest award offered in British Columbia was $4000 for William Haney who robbed a train and killed a special constable tracking him down. He was never captured.

In B.C., wanted posters never used the DEAD as part of the equation. Bounty hunters had to bring their prisoners in alive to receive compensation.



In the U.S, bringing in a prisoner alive was perferrable, but dead was acceptable. Alive meant the full compensation - dead less than half. If Bob Ford had turned in Jesse James alive, he'd have received the full and highest bounty during that time of $10,000. Because he killed Jesse he received less than half the compensation.



The Idea:



I'm often asked where I get my ideas from and this time I can readily answer that this story came from a very surprising source. I've always loved Elvis Presley and have seen his movies countless times over the years. I loved the premise of Girl Happy, where a mobster father pays Elvis to watch over his daughter during spring break in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the one-time hottest destination for spring-breakers in the U.S.

Elvis is forced to comply even though he has his own agenda. He doesn't think the job too hard, after all, the daughter isn't much of a social butterfly. He figures he can watch her and still have fun but he learns that the rich heiress isn't a wallflower after all. She leads him on a merry chase and he winds up reluctantly falling in love with her after much ado.

The premise for this Elvis movie had always stuck in my mind and I knew I'd find the right story one day. And then I decided I'd love to write about a bounty hunter. Soon, the two ideas became one and I fashioned Bodine's Bounty with Girl Happy in mind. It just goes to show that one never really knows when or how an idea will hit.

An Interview with Blythe Gifford




After many years in public relations, advertising, and marketing, Blythe Gifford stopped sublimating and returned to her first love, writing historical novels. Her latest release is THE HARLOT’S DAUGHTER. It was inspired by a real person, the illegitimate daughter of an English king and his notorious mistress. The book has garnered four stars from Romantic Times magazine and four and a half from Cataromance.com, Romance Junkies, and Wantzuponatime.com.
Her first novel, THE KNAVE AND THE MAIDEN, was a double finalist in First Coast Romance Writers’ Beacon Contest, taking second in the Best First Book category and third in Best Historical.
Past president of Chicago North Romance Writers of America, she lives and works near Chicago’s lakefront.

Although many writers know they want to be a writer from an early age, was there something in particular that made you decide to pursue your dream?

Absolutely. I was laid off. And during a “transition,” the advice books recommend you assess your entire life. Well, when I made a list of what I wanted to do before I died, “write a book” was still on the list. I decided now would be a good time.

How long after you first started submitting did it take for you to have your first book accepted?

Ah! Trick question. After I started writing seriously, it took me about ten years to sell, but I didn’t start submitting right away. I guess it was two full manuscripts and about four years of submissions. The real break came when my manuscript was a finalist in RWA’s Golden Heart contest. That became my first book, THE KNAVE AND THE MAIDEN.

What attracts you to your time period?

In junior high school, I read Katherine, by Anya Seton. It’s the story of a lifelong love affair between Prince John of Gaunt, a son of Edward III, and Katherine Swynford. They had four children together and in a happily ever after moment, they finally married late in life. Their children were legitimized and in just a few generations, their descendents sat on the English throne. It sparked my interest in fourteenth century England and the royal family, particularly the behind-the-throne stories. I subsequently put together my own royal family tree, complete with all the mistresses and bastards I could find. THE HARLOT’S DAUGHTER, carries a direct connection to that inspiration.

Beyond that, I like to write about turbulent times and the fourteenth century has it all: plagues, wars, political intrigue, religious and economic upheavals. My characters grapple with a changing world, just as we do. There’s always something coming to test their mettle.

When you are not writing what do you do?

I’m still juggling a consulting career, so a typical day is part writing (the morning) and part day job (afternoon) with exercise and errands thrown in the middle. In my day job, I work in a male dominated industry. Many times, I’ll be the only woman in the room with 20 men. It’s helped me to write men more realistically, I think. A few of them know I moonlight as a romance writer and they are fascinated.

What is the worst thing about being a writer?

So little is within your control. You have no influence over trends, editors, agents, or bookstores. But you do have one big power: to tell your own stories.

And the best thing?

Nothing, absolutely nothing, is better than a reader writing me that she loved the book. I sit in front of the computer and cry.

What is the biggest challenge you face when you are writing a book? The beginning, middle or end?

The biggest challenge is whatever part I am writing. Then, after it’s all done, I forget how hard it is and am foolishly optimistic enough to begin again thinking next time it will be easier. One of my biggest personal challenges is not to get distracted by the research. It is important to me to feel as if I can walk around in the skin of each character and that leads me to chase some down some interesting leads.

In THE HARLOT’S DAUGHTER, for example, my heroine wants to study astrology. I was so excited to find a picture and description of a fourteenth Kalendarium. It’s a beautiful, hand written list of all the positions of the planets, but the exciting thing for me was to discover that it was the size of a small table, not like the hardcover books of today. That detail made it very real to me.

What does your writing cave look like? (If you have a photo that would be great)

Oh, I wouldn’t dare share a photo! But I am fortunate to have a dedicated office with file cabinets and desk space and lots of bookshelves. (Lots of bookshelves, but not enough. I always end up with books on the floor.) One thing I do have near my computer a print illustrating a Paul McCartney quote: “It isn’t worth doing if you don’t’ have fun.” I believe that.

Where do you get your ideas?

I find history an endless source of inspiration. And whenever I’m stuck, I do some additional reading and I’m off again. I also have a file I call the “fish pond” where I stuff articles and odd ideas for someday. When I’m ready to start a new project, I can go fishing!

Can you tell us about your future books?

I have another medieval completed and am working on yet another, but until we are set and titled, I’m superstitious about saying too much more. Both are fourteenth century settings and, yes, revolve around royal bastards. I’d love to set some books in the United States in the late 1800’s, early 1900’s. I have several stories ready for that “someday.”

Can you share a special recipe? Either one that your characters make in your latest book, or one you often make?

I’m not much of a cook. (Some famous writer once said he thought writers should eat the same thing every day.) I haven’t attempted medieval cuisine, but here’s my favorite recipe for salad dressing. I no longer buy bottled because this is so easy and good!

Basil Vinaigrette

Six Tablespoons of Basil Extra Virgin Olive Oil (you can use non-flavored, too.)
Two Tablespoons of Tarragon White Vinegan
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 Teaspoon of Dijon Mustard
A handful of fresh basil leaves
Salt, pepper, if you like

Frappe in the blender. A mini-size jar is perfect.
Makes ¾ cup. Serves about 6-8 side salads. Takes five minutes! It’s even better the second day, when the flavors have a chance to meld.


<Who are some of your favourite romance authors?

Most romance writers trace their roots either Jane Austen or Charlotte and Emily Bronte. I’m an Emily and Charlotte kinda girl, drawn to stories of deep passion and high drama. I read broadly, both within my genre and outside it, but these days, just keeping up with my friends’ books is a challenge. One romance I’ve read and loved this year is Crossroads CafĂ©, by Deborah Smith. Laura Kinsale, Penelope Williamson, Madeline Hunter and Megan Chance are among those on my keeper shelf.
