Author Interview – Karla Darcy

Tell us about your new book? What’s it about and why did you write it? My new book is THE REBELLIOUS HEIRESS. This is the 8th book in the Sweet Deception Regency series. Marry her cousin Woodie? Bella would sooner run away. On her escape to London she finds the Earl of Wyndham attacked and left for dead. When Tristram regains consciousness, he can’t believe this wisp of a girl has saved him. Unable to leave her to her own devices, he escorts her to London and hires her as governess to his son. Though he suspects Bella is lying about her identity, he welcomes her into his home and his heart. Will her controlling guardian find her and force her into a disastrous marriage when her heart belongs to the man she rescued?

Our son is adopted and so being accepted no matter what your heritage has always been important to me. The young boy in the story is not acknowledged as the heir by his grandmother so Bella and the hero try to help the dowager duchess learn to accept the child on his own merits.

I had the worst time coming up with a title for this book. My working title was A Case of Heredity however that sounded like some sort of dread disease. The Rebellious Heiress is much better.

Tell us a bit about your family. I’m married to a confirmed bachelor who discovered that it wasn’t all bad being married. We have two children.

How do you work through self-doubts and fear? I try to remember my mom’s words: “You can’t be perfect. All you can do is your best.” Somehow that takes some of the pressure off the need to do everything the “right” way.

What scares you the most? Every time I begin a book I worry that when I get into the middle of the story I won’t be able to come up with a satisfactory ending.

What makes you happiest? Spending time with my family. In my younger days I was so busy that I didn’t have the great gaps of time to enjoy my children and husband. These days I savor that time.

What’s your greatest character strength? Loyalty. I’m a good friend to have. I’m there if you need me. I value my friends and try to think what they might need from me.

What’s your weakest character trait? I’m hyper critical of myself.
