Author Interview Dakota Madison

What is the hardest part about being an author?

To me, writing is the easy part. I feel the most difficult part is putting your “babies” out into the world and having people tell you everything they think it wrong with them. I’ve had “readers” say some very cruel and hurtful things about me and my books. You have to have tough skin and be willing to take abuse because you will get it. And the more “popular” you and your books become, the more abuse you’ll have to endure.
Can you give us the synopsis of your books?
Fire on Ice
He’s Fire on Ice and she’s afraid to get burned again…

“You always think a guy is going to be different until he’s not.”

Firestorm Center Kian Kavanagh dominates the ice like a rock star dominates the stage. He’s the hottest new player to be recruited for the Firestorm, a newly established professional hockey team in Northern Arizona.

After Taylor Thompson’s heart was completely shattered by her high school’s most popular jock, she vowed never to date another athlete. And she keeps that promise through her first three years of college by putting up impenetrable walls to protect her from heartbreak.
But after a chance meeting with the charming and irresistible Kian Kavanagh, Taylor’s carefully constructed walls are in serious danger of being burned down by Mr. Fire on Ice.

The Playmaker
Kian Kavanagh, Mr. Fire on Ice, has just been called up to play hockey for the NHL’s new expansion team in Seattle. Finally playing in the NHL is a dream come true…except for one thing. Kian has to leave Northern Arizona and the love of his life, Taylor Thompson, to pursue his dream.

Taylor Thompson thinks she’s got life figured out. She’ll finish her final semester of college then move to Seattle to attend graduate school and be with her man. Until one fateful night when Taylor’s world is complete shattered and everything she’s ever wanted—everything she’s ever hoped for—is called into question.

Will Kian’s love be enough to help put Taylor’s shattered world back together again or will tragedy tear them apart?

Will there be anymore books in the series?
I always planned on this being a two book series. I don’t have another book in the works!
How many hours do you write per day/week?
I spend about 20 hours a week writing. I get up every morning at about 4:30 and write before I get ready for work. I often write on my lunch hours and I spend extra time weekend mornings writing. It adds up pretty quickly!
What is your favorite book in the same genre as yours?
I have two favorite books in the New Adult genre: Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Easy by Tammara Webber.
What are you working on now?

I’m currently working on a contemporary romance called Community Service. I wasn’t planning on the love interest using a wheel chair but when he appeared, he used one! Then the task was to make him sexy, wheelchair and all. I’ve also had to do a lot of research on spinal cord injuries, which has been enlightening.
