Interview With Kel O'Connor

Interview With Kel O'Connor!!

1) Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Most of my real-life career has been as a bookseller, which is dangerous when you are an avid reader.  Even when we owned a humor store, books made up a third of the merchandise. I live in North Carolina where we frequently have bears walk through our yard. I love cats, coffee and wearing rude t-shirts.

2) Can you tell us a little about your books?
Broken Bits is my debut novel. It is the first in a series, but it can be read as a standalone title.  Each book will focus on a different member of Digital Acquisition Group.  They do legitimate and black ops work for the government. 

3) Using one sentence, can you describe Broken Bits?
Two damaged people find themselves and each other while dodging men who want them dead.

4)If your book were made into a movie, who do you picture playing Kit and Mick?
Mick looks very much like Richard Armitage. For Kit, I would pick Hayley Atwell. She would need a wig, however!

5) What inspires you to write?
The characters in my head refuse to leave me alone! They keep coming up with great ideas!  Seriously, writing keeps me grounded and gives me a creative outlet.

6) When did you know you wanted to write a book?
I remember writing picture books for my younger sisters growing up.  It just grew from there. The idea for Broken Bits hit me about 3 years ago.  

7) Do you have a favorite spot to write?
Sitting in bed has been my best spot so far!

8) Do you listen to music while you write?
I do! I love action movie and video game soundtracks while writing. I will listen to songs with vocals to get into the right headspace before I write.

9) What is your favorite thing to do when you're not writing?
Reading or hanging out with my family and cats. 

10) What are writing projects are you currently working on?
I am working on the second book in this series (Amy's story)  and also a romance set in Victorian England.

Where to find Kel O'Connor

Broken Bits
Kit Foster thought a week in the woods would be the perfect way to recover from the family scandal that shattered her world.  No reporters, no gossip and no drama.  Then a helicopter dumps an injured man in her path.
Mick Harris is having a bad day.  It was bad enough that he was caught during an op, but then he was beaten and left for dead in the middle of a forest.  He is lucky to be alive, but now he is at the mercy of Kit- the only person who knows the route home.
During the time it takes to hike back to civilization, Kit and Mick become friends and explore their growing attraction.  While the way out is hampered by bad memories and an assassin, they manage to grow close enough to attempt a real relationship.
However, that bliss is short-lived when Mick’s job again threatens Kit’s life and destroys their happiness.
