I live with my wonderful husband, our great kids, and our bratty cats in our cabin at the base of the smoky mountains. When not writing, I enjoy gardening, reading, vacationing in exotic places, and visiting family and friends. I have degrees in mathematics education and curriculum design, but with the fallout of that lousy system called common core, I prefer to write more than teach. My goal is to publish four novels every year, and I do enjoy writing short stories, so look for a few of those sprinkled in between the Novels. Novels will always have a price tag unless there's a freebie promotion.
I sat down with Author, LC Cooper this afternoon for a quick interview on her latest book. I'm excited to bring it to you here on BeBee!
CJ: LC, how has this new book come about?
LC: Just Hold Me is my latest novel. It came about due to current events, recent elections, the increasing stories of extra-terrestrials in the news, the possibility of human-hybrids, and the U.S.-Mexico border. These issues on the news medias and social medias are of interest to many of my readers.
CJ: Can you tell us about the genre?
LC: The genre of this new book is a mash-up of Historical, Political, SciFi, and Romance.
CJ: How are the characters creating the mood?
LC: The protagonist, Ed McGraw, is a paranoid conspiracy theorist, who, as a world traveled photo journalist, must come to grips with his past to save the future of his marriage.
CJ: Does this story have a meaning you wish to express?
LC: Yes, I believe we will soon face the situation where humanity evolves, once again, as a result of extra-terrestrial intervention.
CJ: Are you excited about writing for this Camp NaNo WriMo Contest?
LC: Yes, because I love to write and the time pressure spurs me on.
CJ: Do you recommend this type of contest writing to new writers? explain?
LC: No, because writers who have already published their first novel have experience and have worked through much of the doubt that can come when writing. That being said, NaNo WriMo has a group for young writers, too.
CJ: In closing, LC can you tell your readers what is next on the horizon for their reading pleasure?
LC: Next on the writing table is a sequel to Just Hold Me, called T.H.U.D., followed by, Chocolate Barbells; which will be a Romantic Comedy sequel to Christmess (a John and Jennifer Adventure). Also, I intend to complete two more novels waiting in the wings; Fortune Island-- the third in the Collen Rogerro Adventure Series and Second Chance -- a medically ethical "What if?" novel.
CJ: Wrapping this up, I'd like to thank you LC for sitting down with me today and giving your fans and followers a glimpse into this new Camp NaNo WriMo writing project! Good luck to you on this endeavor and keep us up to date when these next novels go to publish!

With a dry wit and a flair for the sarcastically descriptive, LC Cooper tells the story of a family trapped in the nightmare of the Christmas Family Portrait, further complicated by the joys of extended family, that leaves them with a photo to remember.
Anyone who's ever been talked into signing away their souls by smoozing salesmen - whether a family portrait package, or even a vacuum cleaner - will find themselves in good company in this hilarious short story.
