Kaleigh James


Dreaming of a professional career as an author. In the mean time, using wattpad for practice, and because I think it's just plain cool!

Wife, mom, theatre lover. That pretty much covers it. Oh, and I'm highly inappropriate....like ALL of the time! lol

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
A snippet of a camping trip played in my mind, with two people insanely in love, but having a misunderstanding that is keeping them from realizing it. As I began to flesh out the idea, the story of Camden and Shane came to me. Twists that weren't in the daydream started fitting themselves into the story, developing the main and supporting characters and the storyline in a way I'd never imagined. The book description is below:

Camden grew up secretly in love with her brother's best friend, Shane. At her graduation party, she finally confesses her feelings, only to be completely rejected. Heartbroken, she leaves home, with no forwarding address. Three years later, she arrives at her family's annual camping weekend with a new guy in tow. Though shocked to see her, her family welcomes Camden and her guy with open arms. Shane, however, has had three years to miss her. He wants her back, but she has a major secret that could change everything. The thing is, she's not the only one hiding a secret.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've always loved writing, and my computer has a dozen books on it with only the first few chapters. My husband always encouraged me to write, so I made completing a book my only new year's resolution for this year. I read like a fiend on my Nook, and I had purchased a book by HP Mallory on self-publishing. The idea appealed to me, since I didn't have capital to self-publish via paperback, and I don't seem to possess the patience to go the old-fashioned route. I believe in my books, so I figured, why not use Smashwords to publish independently?
