Author Bio

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.

Author Interview: ‘Boulder Girl, Remember Me When the Moon Hangs Low’ by Cynthia L. Clark

About the Book:

Love story riddled with suspense in the foothills of the Rockies.

 

When young, pretty, successful Lana Ross divorces her indifferent husband of ten years, Cadillac dealer Lucas Chisholm, she randomly chooses a locksmith to change the locks in her home located in Columbine Point, nestled near the iconic Flatirons of the scenic Rocky Mountains and nearby Boulder, Colorado. The selected locksmith, sinister, grimy and smoky, Leon Alvarez, unbeknownst to Lana, was a former high school classmate who had been infatuated with her. Her renewed contact with him stirs his old feelings for her into lust and obsession and the demented belief that she will want him. After a series of calculated sinister events occur in her house, Lana asks Leon to set up a security alarm system. He uses the opportunity to place hidden surveillance cameras throughout her house to watch her in her most private moments. But his plans to win her affection are derailed when Lana meets dark and handsome Harley-Davidson dealer, Vincent “Roadking” Romano, on a writing assignment as the editor of the Boulder Essence magazine. There is an instant attraction between them that leads to an intense and deeply moving love affair that is accompanied by their mutual appreciation of classic cars and rock and roll. Leon’s wrath and jealousy of Roadking kindle an evil monster inside him that he believes is love and leads him down a path that begins with vandalism and evolves into murder. Boulder Girl, Remember Me When the Moon Hangs Low is a tale of spellbinding suspense which is interwoven with an unforgettable, compelling account of tender love set in and around beautiful Boulder, Colorado.

Author Interview:

 

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you into writing?

I am a Colorado native; born and raised in Boulder County, which is the setting of Boulder Girl, Remember Me When the Moon Hangs Low. I love music and to dance. I like gardening, yoga, and long walks. I have a BA in Economics and a JD Law from the University of Colorado Boulder. I always wanted to write because there are story lines circulating in my head that need to be put into words but I lacked the time, inspiration and confidence to take on a project the size of a novel. One day I decided that it was time and I sat down and wrote the first words of chapter one.

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

I like sitting with my laptop at my cherry writing desk in my home office, but I will write whenever the inspiration strikes me – during my lunch hour at work or while I am making dinner or when I’m alone and uninterrupted.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

It seems that when I am working on a book, the plot circulates in my head all the time and often ideas for the direction of a particular chapter just pop into my head. I grasp ideas from conversations or from musical lyrics, as is the case with another novel that I just completed, Dirt Road Main Street. The question “what if” drives the direction of the plot in my novels.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

Boulder Girl is my debut novel. I had always heard that creative writing instructors believe that an outline is an absolute necessity so I drafted an outline that only carried me through just a few chapters of the novel. After those chapters were written, it seemed that the story began to write itself – as if the characters had taken on a life of their own. It was like I was watching it unfold on a movie screen and then I put it into words as I watched.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

Romance/suspense. Boulder Girl, as it initially appeared in my imagination, was intended to be a suspense novel. But as I was writing the story, it was clear to me that the characters would develop more fully with an intense romance intertwined with the suspense that had already begun to develop.

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

This is a hard question to answer because I have such a strong image of the characters in my head. But I would say perhaps, Nicole Kidman as Lana Ross, Keanu Reeves as Vincent “Roadking” Romano, and Joaquin Phoenix as Leon Alvarez.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I’m quite busy working and writing so I don’t have time to devote to reading as much as I would like. My favorite authors are “old school” – John Steinbeck and Charles Dickens.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

None, just proofreading my novels.

9: What is your favourite book and why?

Bridges of Madison County, because it is a story of a short love affair and the haunting painful aftermath for both parties.

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

Just sit down and start writing. You can always edit anything you write. A story worth sharing is worth writing.

11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?

Release Date: May 19, 2020
Blurb

Seven years ago, they took everything from me. My father. My husband. My child.

When they stole my chance at justice, I vowed to get revenge.

Then I met him.

He tempts that long-lost part of me, but his presence is a reminder that betrayal lurks around every corner.

Their biggest mistake is underestimating my commitment for vengeance.

They don’t realize that when it comes to a woman like me, hell hath no fury.

Excerpt

Death.

Heartache.

Vengeance.

This isn’t a tale for the tender-hearted, the judgmental, or those who refuse to think outside the box and look at the broader picture. Those who think that everything is black and white. Simple. Cut and dried.

It’s not. There’s always shades of gray.

It’s easier to say “I’d never” when you’re sitting safely at home with the people you love most right by your side. When grief hasn’t woven itself so deeply in the fabric of your DNA that it can never be unraveled. There can be no separation. And even if you tried, it would only result in you becoming a frayed and tangled mess.

It’s easy to say you’d never walk the treacherous moral tightrope. But you aren’t the one who plummeted to the depths of hell, littered with the agony of loss and the anger of injustice, and had to claw your way out.

This story isn’t scrawled on pristine white pages in bold black ink. Marred, torn, and blood-spattered, its chapters hold deep gouges inflicted by betrayal.

This story is about a woman who had everything taken from her.

And how she took it all back.

Author Bio

RC Boldt currently lives on the southeastern coast of the U.S., enjoys long walks on the beach, running, reading, people watching, and singing karaoke. If you’re in the mood for some killer homemade mojitos, can’t recall the lyrics to a particular 80’s song, or just need to hang around a nonconformist who will do almost anything for a laugh, she’s your girl.
