Hosting authors on my blog is always a priviledge, so I’m glad to host P.H. Turner today, the author behind “Winterkill”, a romantic suspense story. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my interview questions.
1) How long have you been writing?
I wrote short stories as a child. Luckily, none of them as survived, but it was a good way to get started. Every time I met some unusual person, or a strong character they were added to my repository of people to write about it. And as we say in the news business, what people really do is far stranger and dramatic than any fiction you could write.
2) Is Winterkill your first book? If not, please tell us a little about your first book.
Winterkill is my first book and I’m thrilled that Kensington chose to publish it.
3) Why did you choose romance as genre for your book?
Life is romantic suspense. We are all seeking love and life certainly is suspenseful- we cannot see what lies ahead. Loving and problem solving make life for more interesting and even better if you have a great guy or gal along for the ride.
4) Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Just write. I heard Kevin Smith say that at a presentation at the National Association of Broadcasters in Las Vegas a couple of years ago.
5) Do you have any works in progress you’d like to tell us about?
Under the Dark Moon is the tale of Taylor’s investigation into human trafficking of girls out of Mexico into sexual slavery in America. Taylor finds eleven year old Sofia, who escaped her captor when he fell asleep. Captain Trace Yazzie of the Navaho Nation is Taylor’s lover and partner in finding the traffickers who took Sophia.
I have a fourth book that I am plotting in my head. Taylor and Trace will be together again and one of the minor characters in Under the Dark Moon will be a major character in this untitled book.
Author: P.H. Turner
Genre: Romantic Suspense
A beautiful reporter and a charming rancher are caught in a web of mayhem, murder…and lust.
Reporter Sawyer Cahill returns home to Cheyenne, Wyoming to report for the local station. But leaving behind the coverage of the gangland murders of San Antonio only lands her smack in the middle of the ritualistic animal mutilations. Harassed and threatened by the freak behind the bizarre murders, Sawyer plunges into her investigation, reaping the attentions of two local ranchers.
Local rancher, Jake Spooner, tangles with a tug of war relationship with Sawyer. Tormented between his smoldering desire for Sawyer and his wish to keep her safe, their passion flames in a mountain snow storm.
Teaching and shooting news and documentaries took me to work on the East and West coasts, the Midwest and an island in the Gulf of Mexico. Born a fourth generation Texan, I live in Austin with an energetic mutt that waits patiently every day for me to come home and work on my second novel.
