Blog Tour & Giveaway: Cherished By the Mountain Man [Wild Heart Mountain: Military Heroes 05] by Sadie King!

Author interview!

Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?

I’m Sadie King and I write short instalove romance with curvy girls and growly alpha men. I published my first book in October 2019 and since then I’ve published over 100 short romances.

What is something unique/quirky about you?

I used to perform improv comedy. On stage with no script, just making silly stuff up. It was so much fun and I’ve been lucky enough to perform at the Edinburgh Festival and the Chicago Comedy Festival.

Where were you born/grew up at?

I’m from Auckland, New Zealand. In my early twenties I moved to the UK to travel and see the world and I spent time living and working in London and Peterborough. Just when I was ready to come home, I met my husband and ended up staying for another nine years! We recently re-located back to New Zealand. It was always part of the deal when I met him to come back here to raise our family. New Zealand is the best country in the world to be a kid!

If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?

At the beach with my whanau (extended family). Eating scallops and drinking wine.

What are you passionate about these days?

I’m passionate about leaving the world in a decent state for my son and (hopefully) other descendants. I volunteer for a local conservation group looking after New Zealand’s unique wildlife that unfortunately is mostly endangered. I spent a fair few hours last spring watching over a rare Dotterel nest to make sure no predators got at the eggs. Two chicks fledged, so that’s a win!

What do you do to unwind and relax?

Read of course! I usually have several books on the go. I read mostly on my kindle app and always have a paperback as well so my son doesn’t see me on my device all the time. Also, there’s something nice about holding a paperback, especially if you’ve got a chilled glass of wine in the other hand.

How to find time to write as a parent?

Schedule and discipline. When my son was little, I wrote where and when I could; nap times, early mornings before anyone was up, but that’s always risky, if you wake the little one then you’re up building train tracks instead of writing. I used to write on the train on my commute into London, and on the plane when on work trips.

Now my son’s started school it’s easier to get my writing time in. And this is my full time job now so I write in the mornings after school drop off and do marketing and admin activities in the afternoon.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!

Focused, driven, silly, thoughtful (as in I over think everything, not thoughtful as in nice)

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

It was when I had to write my occupation on the mortgage paperwork that it hit me. I wrote ‘author’ as occupation for the first time and thought, yeah, this is how I earn a living now.

Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

His Big Book Stack. There’s an author and a romance-reading mountain man. They get stranded in a cabin and he helps her write the steamy scenes…

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on?

I went to Bath because of Jane Austin.

She’s my best friend’s widow and the only woman I’ve ever loved…

Paul was my best friend, my brother in arms, and the only one of us that didn’t come back alive.
I promised if something ever happened to him that I’d look after Angie, his wife.
He doesn’t know that I’ve loved Angie for almost as long as he has.
Now she’s a single mom and running a business on her own. I sense her loneliness; I sense her need.
Angie’s off-limits, but my heart beats for her. And I don’t know how much longer I can resist this pull between us…

Cherished by the Mountain Man is a best friend’s widow forbidden love romance featuring an ex-military mountain man and the curvy single mom he cherishes.
