Yule Tidings -- Great Reads for December!


Barnes & Noble

Meet Cooper McKenzie at Readers & 'ritas in November!

As part of our countdown to Readers & ‘ritas 2017, our Meet the Author interview series helps you get to know the authors joining us in Texas on November 10-12. Read on to get acquainted with Cooper McKenzie, and purchase your tickets to meet her in person at Readers & ‘ritas!

What book made you fall in love with the genre you write?

I fell in love with the romance genre in 8th grade after reading The Ivory Key by Rita Estrada. I've read that book several times over the years and recently found a copy to keep in my own library.

If a movie were made of your most recent book, who would you cast in the lead and why?

If a movie was made of IRON LUST by my Keely Jakes pen name, I would try very hard to talk the men who suggested I write a bodybuilder romance, and who are featured on the cover, Christian James and Daniel Treat.

What was the first story you wrote?

The first story I ever wrote was a teenage angst novel about a girl escaping into her dreams to keep from killing herself. It sucked and was destroyed about a year after I wrote it. My first story that was published is a mystery/ghost story called Warm Spirits. It is being republished as part of a YA anthology entitled Magic and Shadows coming November 7  from Opal Moon Press.

If you could change the ending to any famous book, TV show, or movie, what would it be and how would you rewrite it? (Spoiler alert!)

I would let Inman survive being shot in Cold Mountain.

What is your favorite part of meeting your readers?

I love readers' reactions when they find out that not only do I write across the erotic romance genre as Cooper McKenzie, I also write gay erotic romance as Keely Jakes and children and YA books as Susan Walker.
