Tomorrow's Guest: Deborah Coonts!

I'm very, very excited to have debut mystery author Deborah Coonts coming on my blog as a guest tomorrow. Deborah’s mother tells her she was born in Texas a very long time ago, though Deborah is not totally sure—her mother can’t be trusted. But she was definitely raised in Texas on Barbeque, Mexican food, and beer. She currently resides in Las Vegas, where family and friends tell her she can’t get into too much trouble. Silly people. Coonts has built her own business, practiced law, flown airplanes, written a humor column for a national magazine, and survived a teenager.

Deborah Coonts has hit it big with her first novel, Wanna Get Lucky? As the May issue of Booklist said, "…this is chick-lit gone wild and sexy… As the first in a series, Wanna Get Lucky? hits the proverbial jackpot."

And she'll be visiting my home town of Colorado Springs soon! Deborah will sign copies of her books at Borders on Briargate on Saturday the 14th at 2 p.m. and at Barnes and Noble at the Citadel Mall on Sunday the 15th at 12:30 p.m. Lastly, she'll present a "Write Brain" workshop to Pikes Peak Writers about "Finding Your Own Unique Voice" on Tuesday evening, August 17th, at 6:30 pm at the Cottonwood Center for the Arts. I'm sure she'll be signing books there, too. See the PPW website for information and to sign up to attend.

For more information about Deborah Coonts, her book, and future appearances, please visit her website. She has agreed to answer my interview questions, and I'm sure you'll be intrigued by what she has to say, so please stop by tomorrow. Then, feel free to ask her some questions of your own!

Really enjoyed the interview, Beth and Deborah! Story and characters sound fun, plus who doesn't love a story set in Sin City? Looking forward to reading the first book.
