Interview w/ Avery Flynn-- Grovelin', random socks & bad girls turned good...

Hey Guys! We've got Avery Flynn joining us today! Yall give her a big welcome and hit those comments!

Morning Avery! Welcome to herding cats!
Thank you so much for having me!
Any time! Alright. I'm ready for some book gossip! *rubs hands together* So, say you had only 10 seconds to hook someone what would you tell them to get em all hot and bothered over Brazen?
Hot as sin, alpha-hottie, ex-boxer turned PI will do anything to win back the woman he loves after his hag of an ex-wife shows up saying they’re still married. #Oops #NoHeDidNot #TimeToGrovel
Oh damn! It sounds like things are, erm, a little complicated for Bianca and Taz. If you could tell your characters one thing/give them any advice what would you tell them?
Oh God! I am the worst person to ask because I’m the one who put them in that position. Yes, I am an evil writer. Bwahahahahahahahahaha. *Twists fake mustache* 
::snort:: Authors are so mean! lol I love a good quote. Any make-a-girl-bite-her-lip quotes you could share?
How he managed to look so confident standing with only a towel wrapped around his hips, she had no idea. But he did. That just made the urge to poke his oversized ego too tempting to ignore.
“Getting Gidget has never been the reason why I’m on this case and you damn well know it. I’ve only ever been here for you.”
Gotta love a man in a towel. Noms! Can you tell us 3 fun/sexy/quirky/neat behind the scenes facts about Brazen?
First, I LOVED Pop Up Video. :)  
Right? I was totally addicted. Won't even lie.
Three things, okay:

  • I researched a bunch of clothing-optional resorts for Brazen. It was really hard. Poor me. *grin* Also, I totally want to go to one now, but the Fab Mr. Flynn is a hard no. :(
  • All of the men in the B-Squad have traditional Romany names. Taz means bird nest. I loved that for him because despite his denials, he is a total mother hen. 
  • Taz and Bianca first appear as the main couple in Bulletproof. That’s a novella set in Liliana Hart’s Mackenzie world and I, like a lot of readers, always want more after I fall for a couple in a novella so I wrote Brazen to tackle that ‘what happens next’ question.
LOL I love when the big bad alpha is a total mother hen too. Did you have any particular inspiration for Bianca and Taz's characters?
I don’t. I’m weird that way. I will find a cover model who fits the image in my head and will work from there. 
What's the first thing that pops into your head about Taz? What about Bianca?
Taz - Smoking hot bad boy with a heart of gold.
Bianca - Smart and sassy bad girl turned good.
Oh they sound like a real good time. Okay, a couple quickies while we have ya...

Favorite Man Candy?
Luke Evans is my new pretend boyfriend. He is so drool-worthy.
Works for me! So, weirdest thing in your purse right now?
Random kids’ socks. I would tell you why if I knew but somehow they just appear. I think the kids stuff them in my purse so they don’t have to take them up to the laundry baskets in their rooms.
Ha! That's kinda special. lol I'm completely freaked out by?
Horses. They’re beautiful but they scare the crap out of me.
Me too! They're pretty and all but no ma'am! If I could get away with anything I'd...?
Do it all! Why limit yourself? 
Worst thing you've ever had in your mouth?
Oh the jokes, they write themselves but I’ll try to be good…How about expired Greek yogurt. That was not good.
Oh man that doesn't sound good at all. Ergs! Before you head out...What's up next for you?
Bang! No don’t duck - or think dirty thoughts. Bang is the next book in the B-Squad series and it’ll be out in September. It’s Tamara and Isaac’s story. Think ice maiden ex-beauty queen meets super hot Texas freelance investigator with a weakness for bitchy blondes. Sparks. They have them. 
Thanks so much for dropping in, Avery!
Thank you so much for having me! xoxo

Everything is finally working out for Bianca Sutherland and Taz Hazard. They’re in love and running B-Squad Security and Investigations. They’ve planned the perfect operation to take down the dangerous drug kingpin who’s kidnapped one of Bianca’s best friends. Then Taz’s wife—who was supposed to be his ex-wife—shows up on the eve of the big rescue mission and threatens to blow up his and Bianca’s happily ever after.

The last thing Bianca wants after the revelation that Taz might still be married is to have to spend time with her former live-in boyfriend who never told her he’d ever been married in the first place. But it’s too late to change plans. To save her friend, she has to swallow her hurt and go undercover with Taz as a newlywed couple at an exclusive resort. The only thing Taz wants is Bianca and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win her back. But when it’s his life on the line, will it be too late for him to show her that his past is over and she’s the only woman for his future…


Award-winning romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
