Sure
to thrill readers of Nora Roberts and Karen Robards, the breathtaking Denver
Heroes series from New York Times bestselling author Kathy
Clark continues as two adrenaline junkies find themselves fighting unexpected
passion—and unspeakable terror.

Ex-soldier
Chris Wilson lost too many friends to war. Back home in Denver, he’s trying to
make a difference as a paramedic, treating victims of crisis situations. Not
even active combat could prepare Chris for the rush he gets when violence and
tragedy collide, but the job isn’t the only thing making his heart race. His
partner is his closest confidant from childhood, and the girl he remembers is
now a strong, sensual woman . . . who needs him more than ever.
Sara
Richards is more comfortable risking her life than asking for help. The petite
blonde medic put a wall around her heart long ago, vowing to never let anyone
hurt her again. Only now her long-buried secrets threaten to destroy everything
she’s built. And though she should be able to trust Chris, his smoldering
blue-gray eyes ignite desires that feel more dangerous than whatever’s lurking
in the shadows. For once, Sara can’t go it alone. But Chris might just be
stubborn enough to stand by her side as she faces down her worst nightmare.

Author Interview!

1. On amazon you have 32 books! congratulation! This might be a hard question, but what was your favorite book to write?

I fall in love with all of my heroes when I’m writing their story, but if I have to pick a favorite, it would be Cries in the Night because that story had been in my mind for almost twenty years and was based on reality. I was a victim’s advocate back in the late 1990s, and I saw so much sadness, pain and terror that I had to let the story sit for a while so I could write it objectively. Plus, my father was a fireman, so I’ve always thought they were the greatest heroes. Add a stalker, a tangled subplot and a heart- wrenching love story and I think it’s one of my best books ever.

2. Your next book will be out on August 18th, can you tell us about the hero Chris Wilson,without giving too much away, what makes him so Amazing?

Chris Wilson is the youngest Wilson brother in the Denver Heroes Series and probably the most complex. Just back from several tours of Afghanistan as a combat medic, he is trying to transition to civilian life. While working toward his dream to be a doctor, he gets a job as a Denver paramedic. I like Chris because he’s not trying to be a hero. He just wants to get on with his life. But when he is partnered with a girl from his past and a buddy from the war, Chris is forced to deal with several levels of PTSD. Some battles are won and some battles are lost, but Chris comes through stronger and yet more vulnerable than ever before.

3. What do you enjoy most about writing?

I love to plot. My idea of a great day is to sit with someone who has a germ of an idea and work through a story, set up characters and conflicts. The work comes when I have to actually sit down and write. Plotting is 100% creativity, and it’s so much fun to come up with “what if’s”. And I’ve discovered that plotting is much more fun and effective when you have someone to bounce ideas off of.

4. What kind of research have you done with Deep Night?

I insist on sticking to reality as much as possible, so when I’m writing about an occupation that’s new to me, I prefer to actually talk to someone who can give me insider details. It’s important to have my facts correct, so even the tiniest details like shift hours, medical verbiage, and types of calls had to be right. My husband and I spent an afternoon with the head of the paramedic division in Denver, and the information she gave us was invaluable. Plus, I have a firefighter friend who always reads my books to catch anything that isn’t totally accurate, and he’s a stickler for details.

5. In your option what makes your books different and worth the read?

My books have strong, memorable characters that make you laugh and cry and fall in love with them. One of the reasons I love to write series is because I hate to let my characters go. I get to hang out with them again in the next book and the next. And readers seem to like the continuity, too.

6. With so many books, where do you get your ideas?

Real life is always stranger than fiction. My husband and I pick up ideas from the news or something we see or hear. From there, it’s just a matter of building a story around that one spark and coming up with characters to populate it. It’s funny, because sometime we have to pull the reality back because it’s just too bizarre!

7. Tell us about Deep Night…

Ex-soldier Chris Wilson lost too many friends to war. Back home in Denver, he’s trying to make a difference as a paramedic, treating victims of crisis situations. Not even active combat could prepare Chris for the rush he gets when violence and tragedy collide, but the job isn’t the only thing making his heart race. His partner is his closest confidant from childhood, and the girl he remembers is now a strong, sensual woman . . . who needs him more than ever.

Sara Richards is more comfortable risking her life than asking for help. The petite blonde medic put a wall around her heart long ago, vowing to never let anyone hurt her again. Only now her long-buried secrets threaten to destroy everything she’s built. And though she should be able to trust Chris, his smoldering blue-gray eyes ignite desires that feel more dangerous than whatever’s lurking in the shadows. For once, Sara can’t go it alone. But Chris might just be stubborn enough to stand by her side as she faces down her worst nightmare.

Deep Night is the third book in the Denver Heroes series, and I think these are three of the best books I’ve ever written. However, I just finished the first book of the Austin Heroes Series, and Nick kind of stole my heart.

Just for fun—-> 8) Funniest fan encounter?

My husband and I were at the Mystery Writers of America booth at the Texas Book Festival two years ago. We were signing copies of several of our self-published novels. One had a gorgeous hunk of a firefighter (shirtless, of course) on the cover. A lady walked by and her head snapped around. She stopped and headed toward that book as if it was magnetic. She picked it up and started stroking his bare, tanned abs (which, I must admit, were magnificent). After she bought a book and we autographed it, she tried to get me to give her the phone number of the model! An hour later, she passed by the booth again, heading in the opposite direction, and stopped for one last appreciative stroke of his chest before leaving. I have no doubt that that book is still on her nightstand!
