What are you working on next?
My next piece will be either a novella or a novel; it is still in progress so we will see how the story unfolds! It is a contemporary romance fiction. We see the characters meet in high school and develop their relationship through to their adult years. There is a twist to the story that I hope readers will find inspirational and not disappointing.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I write every available opportunity that I have, even if it is just to write in my own journal. I do still hold a full-time job in the IT industry. When I am not working or writing, I am an avid reader. I also have a huge family and there always seems to be some form of family gathering! I also happen to enjoy backgammon and usually play the computer because people get tired of my winning nature.
For fans of Rocker romances, the Back-Up series is a must-read. I thoroughly enjoyed each book and there is so much story.
We were introduced to the mysterious bass player Trey Taylor in the first three books. Trey is such an enigma that we honestly cannot help but find ourselves attracted to him with the glimpses that we received along the way. Between hiding behind his shades and his famous snarky comments, we just knew there was more to his story, and I thank A.M. Madden for writing Backstage just for him. There are elements of angst and suspense which I love in a story. This is definitely not your typical rock romance where the biggest trials are the media and groupies. Backstage is rather a dark read and contains mature themes. Trey's story is told so well! I shared every emotion with Trey and wanted to take him in and protect him. By the end of Part 1, I was feeling as lonely and in pain as he was!
What I also appreciate is that the other members of DL appear in this book. It's nice to see what's going on with them and to see the solidarity between bandmates continue. I also appreciate seeing how it all began and where it all went to.
