Q&A with paranormal romance author Catherine Bybee

Thanks for being here today, Catherine. Would you please share a short bio about yourself?

I'm a wife and mother... not always in that order. I've been reading romance since I was an early teen and never, ever plan to stop. I've spent most of my working life as an ER Nurse but have taken a break the past few years.

Q Do you consider yourself a shy and/or introverted person?
A Me, shy? Hell no.

Q  What's the easiest part of this business for you?
A Writing the book is the easy part. Ideas swim in my head until I get them down on paper.

Q Tell me about a time that you had to step outside your comfort zone either in your writing career or in your personal life?
A I think the first time I did a book signing it was a little outside my comfort. Again, I'm not shy, so sitting there talking to people isn't hard. I love that part of the job, but wondering if anyone was going to come up to me and tell me I write crap somehow crept in the back of my mind.

Q What’s one tip you could share with shy and introverted people that’s helped you?
A Life is to short to spend it sheltered. You probably learned the word NO when you were a few months old. You'll hear it again and again in life, but if you don't try, you'll NEVER hear the word yes.

Q Would you please share a short blurb of your book and where my readers can buy it?

Blurb: Kari Pearce lives the life of a lone werewolf. No one knows of her affliction, not even her sister. When she hears of a missing child up in the Sequoias, Kari goes on the hunt to find the child and her abductor before tragedy can occur. Saving the child is easy, avoiding the FBI agent associated with the case is not.

Agent Nick Murdock knows he's seen Kari before, but damn if he can remember where. There's one thing he knows for sure. Kari Pearce, with her blonde hair and piercing blue eyes, is hiding something. And Nick is going to find out what.

  1. Thanks for having me here today, Rebecca.

  2. Hi Catherine - From one nurse (ex-RN) to another - hiya. Interesting premise for your book. Pardon the question, but do shapeshifing wolves retain their human thughts when in wolf form? I'm assuming your heroine is protecting the little girl, yet others would see her as a threat so...Oh, hey, I can see where this story will get very interesting.

    I could never work the ER! Floated down once or twice because I had to, but man, I preferred beside nursing.

    Nice to meet you not-shy person. :)

  3. Hi Lynne,
    I'll go back to the RN field again someday. When my kids are a bit older I think. It's hard to be away from it to tell the truth. I worked for a few years on the floor. I enjoy the rush of the ER more than day in and day out care. It takes all of us to do the whole job.

    And yes, my werewolves keep their human thoughts after they shift. :-)
    Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Very fun interview Catherine! I love your attitude, not to mention you're a fabulous author.

  5. Takes one to know one, Beth. LOL - Sorry, the kids have only been back in school for a short time. It will take me until Christmas for their words to leave my lips. LOL

  6. Hey Catherine, thanks so much for coming today. I don't have another guest until Friday, so the podium remains yours for another day if you want it. LOL. Can't wait to read this book!
