Welcome Amber Daulton! Thanks for dropping by!
What genre do your books fall into or is it a genre blended?
I write in a variety of sub-genres of romance, which includes: historical, time travel, romantic-suspense, contemporary western, contemporary romance, erotic romance, and New Adult. My books range between sweet (no sex, sex behind closed doors, and mild petting) to spicy (hot scenes and explicit scenes with dirty language).
What inspires you to write?
Everything around me. Sometimes I can watch a TV show or read a book, and I think of a story idea that’s both completely different and along the same lines. When this happens, the characters keep talking to me in my head, and I cannot think about anything else until I at least write down a basic plot or idea. Inspiration often strikes when I’m sleeping. My dreams are usually pretty vivid and wild, so I take what I can from the dream world and create a story around it.
Do you listen to music or set the mood somehow to get writing?
I need a comfortable chair, a clean environment, and silence to work. I just can’t concentrate when people are talking to me or around me, and I find music distracting. Repetitive background noise, however, like the whirling ceiling fan, sound of traffic, and the static on the TV is soothing and helps me get into my zone.
Tell me something quirky about yourself.
I’m from North Carolina, USA and have lived there all my life, but most people think I’m from England or even France when they first meet me (and yes, I’ve been asked to speak French, which I don’t know). I have an accent which sounds proper and smooth; a far contrast to how most people sound in my area. I’ve been getting the “Where are you from?” question since I was in elementary school, and kids can be quite cruel. Luckily, I’ve never really been bothered by the questions and funny looks. In fact, I take sounding different as a matter of pride because I like standing out in a crowd.
What do you aim to make people feel when they read your books?
Well, it depends on the book. If the story is fun and uplifting, or moody with dark undertones, I hope the reader picks up on that and feels as the characters do. I love to write tearjerker romances with happy endings, so I proudly state that I like it when my readers cry.
What’s next for you?
I have a lot of projects going on right now. Lyrical Embrace is book 4 in the Deerbourne Inn series (several authors are writing for it), but I hope to write another book for the series in the future.
Currently, the second book in my Arresting Onyx series is with my editor and hopefully will be contracted soon. Arresting Jeremiah follows hardnosed parole officer Jim Borden and his obsession Calista Barlow as they stick their noses where they don’t belong and fall deep into the trouble with the criminal organization known as Onyx. This sexy, dirty-talking romantic suspense series will span five books with a standalone HEA for each rough-and-tumble hero and their spunky heroines. The first book is already published.
Blurb for Lyrical Embrace
Out-of-work violinist Erica Timberly decides enough is enough. She leaves her abusive boyfriend and flees the big city, but then her car breaks down in the middle of the night. Though wary of men, she accepts help from Dylan Haynes, a stranger driving by on the road, and soon recognizes him as the sexy former drummer of her favorite indie rock band. Maybe, just maybe, her run of bad luck is finally turning around.
Music teacher Dylan Haynes knows Erica is in trouble, and her black eye is only the first clue. The stubborn yet vulnerable woman needs a friend, but he’s determined to give her everything she deserves.
Will Erica listen to the music in her heart and trust Dylan, or will her past always threaten her future?
