Author Interview: Shiloh Walker

Today on My Overstuffed Bookshelf, I am pleased to introduce you to author Shiloh Walker. Not only is she a great writer, but she is a real sweetie to chat with. So let's get started!

To start off, welcome and can you tell the readers a little about yourself?
>Nothing terribly fascinating... I love to read, which isn't a big surprise.  I've been writing for most of my life.  I married my high school sweetheart and we've been married since I was 20.  Before I quit working to write full time, I was a nurse-technically still am, because writing is anything but a stable career, unless you happen to make it huge, and I'm not there.  We've got three kids and one of them already shows signs of having the writing bug.  I don't know what my husband is going to do if he has several of us living in la-la land all the time.

Can you tell us a little about your upcoming or latest release?
>My latest release is BROKEN, about a bounty hunter and a woman on the run.  Things get really complicated when they fall for each other and then he ends up getting handed an assignment that involves her. 

The book's blurb...


Quinn Rafferty is working as a bounty hunter and bail bondsman in St. Louis when a new neighbor catches his eye. He’s tempted by her beauty—but he knows from experience that anyone desperate enough to live in his building is damaged goods. Besides, he has his own soul to mend before he can worry about anyone else.

Sara Davis is on the run, but not for the usual reasons a woman goes on the lam. She’s not an abused wife, and she’s not a criminal. But she does have a plan for her future. And as much as she finds herself attracted to her gruff, tough neighbor, she can’t risk telling him the secrets she’s hiding. There’s just too much at stake.
Driven to desire…

But Quinn must get closer to Sara when she turns out to be the target of his new missing persons case, and he discovers that there is something more complex and dangerous to her than he thought. Now, both Quinn and Sara will have to expose their true feelings—as well as their fragile hearts—if they hope their love will survive…


While it is a follow up to another book, FRAGILE, most readers who haven't read FRAGILE haven't had any trouble reading this one...I've gotten a lot of good feedback from it.  Which is good, because there were times writing that book that I wanted to kill Quinn. 

I am a fly on your wall.  What would I report back to my master of the daily grind of Shiloh Walker?

> "That woman is the weirdest, most unorganized creature I have ever seen in my life... how does she get anything done?"

When you are not writing, what kind of books do you like to read? Do you have any favorite authors, that are must reads?
> Romance.  Urban fantasy.  Fantasy. Science fiction.  My must reads?  Nora Roberts/JD Robb, Lynn Viehl/SL Viehl, Ilona Andrews, Jeaniene Frost, Nalini Singh, Patricia Briggs... that list could get very long, though...

What are 3 things that are "must haves" for you when you sit down to write a new book?
>I need my gloves-I've got carpal tunnel (pretty bad) and these gloves are designed to keep me from resting my wrists on the keyboard.  My iPo/iPhone isn't a must but it's helpful.  And... um...can't think of a third.

What are Your favorite thing to do in your downtime?
>Read.  Or something with my kids, or a date night with my guy.

Where can we purchase your books?
>My ebooks can be purchased from the publishers or various etailers-a link to those can be found at my site here  http://shilohwalker.com/books.htm.  My print works can be ordered online or at various brick and mortar stores.  Right now, BROKEN, HUNTER'S NEED and several other releases are still on the shelves at quite a few stores.

Do you have a blog or website that your readers can keep up with you and your books?  Twitter?
>Yep, yep, yep...

Thanks for joining us on My Overstuffed Bookshelf. Feel free to name your next heroine Amy!

>Thanks for having me... and I'll keep that in mind... ;o)
