Para-RT13: Interview with Catherine Bybee

Posted April 8, 2013 by Carmel in Para-#RT13 / 11 Comments


Introduce yourself to our readers:

[box]I was raised in Washington State, but after graduating high school, I moved to Southern California in hopes of becoming a movie star. After growing bored with waiting tables, I returned to school and became a registered nurse, spending most of her career in urban emergency rooms. I now write full-time and love every minute of it. [/box]
[box]My breakout novel, Wife by Wednesday earned me the title of NY Times Bestselling Author, USA Today Bestselling Author, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author and #1 Amazon Bestselling Author. Yeah, it’s kinda cool! [/box]

Tell us a little about your books?

[box]My first novels were paranormal based. I have a time travel series that has a very dedicated following. But it’s my contemporary romances that have really ran amuck on the charts. I write sexy and smart page-turning romances that are hard to put down. Or at least, that’s what my readers tell me. *Grin*[/box]

Is this your first RT convention?

[box]Oh, no! This will be my third. I love RT and all the wonderful people I meet while I’m there. I’ve met some crazy fans, new friends and of course, plenty of authors. [/box]

What are you most looking forward to at RT?

[box]This year I’m celebrating my birthday with RT. I’m very excited to share that day with everyone. And for the first time I’ll be involved in workshops daily. [/box]

If you’ve been to one before any tips for us newbies?

[box]Yeah, bring pre paid boxes to send books home. They will not all fit in your suitcase! Another tip will be to schedule a few workshops a day, but don’t think you’ll get to all of them, it’s not possible. Above all, have fun! [/box]

Where can we find you at RT? Are you on any panels, going to any parties, etc.

[box]Yeah, party in Bybee’s room on May 1st. *rolls eyes* Helloooo, birthday girl. Oh, and I’ll be heading a panel on twitter and Facebook. And a couple of panels with my fellow Montlake authors. [/box]

If we see you at the bar what drink will be in your hand?

[box]Most likely, it will be a glass of wine, or something with Vodka in it… And what is this “If you see me in the bar?” Honey, that’s where all of us end up at one point or another. LOL [/box]

Duncan MacCoinnich’s task… Travel to the twenty-first century Renaissance Faire, deflower the Druid virgins, and go home. Only his job is not so easily accomplished with the virgin in question, Tara McAllister. Time is running out. The evil is closing in on them both.

Tara finds Duncan irresistible after what was supposed to be a mock Hand-fasting binds them. When Duncan whisks her to his home in Scotland she could accept that. But, can she forgive him for taking away her modern life when she finds herself in the sixteenth century? And is it love they feel? Or something else?[/tab] [tab]Silent Vows

Myra, a medieval virgin druidess, flees five hundred years into the future to escape death at the hands of a cursed witch and lands in the arms of a handsome but cynical twenty-first century cop.

Officer Todd Blakely knows Myra is hiding something , but can’t resist her innocent charms. Destiny throws them both into a world of intrigue and mysticism. Can Todd be the true white knight she needs? Or will magic and the winds of time tear them apart?[/tab] [tab]Redeeming Vows

For her own safety, modern day, single mom, Lizzy McAllister is forced to bow to the medieval men who surround her when she’s thrust back in time to the sixteenth century against her will. When Lizzy finds herself trapped in time with Fin, the one man she finds both irresistible and maddening, she agrees to combine forces with him to rid Scotland of the evil witch, Grainna.

Finlay MacCoinnich’s attraction to Lizzy sizzles the very air they breathe. Tearing down the solid walls the woman has built around her won’t be easy, but he’s willing to do anything to keep her by his side. When a spell cast by their deadliest foe throws them forward in time, will they manage to find their way back in time to save their family from peril? And will Lizzy willingly stay in his time, or abandon him altogether?[/tab] [tab]Highland Shifter

Helen Adams has a knack for finding lost objects, but the Simon McAllister she finds isn’t what she expected. The missing California teen is now a grown man—a kilted, sword wielding, Highland warrior.

A mysterious Druid book and Helen’s sixth sense send her to Scotland in search of a missing boy. After being attacked by strange men dressed in medieval garb, a handsome, desirable hero answering to the boy’s name rescues her. No one is more surprised than she to find herself in sixteenth century Scotland. Unable to deny the reality of time travel, Helen discovers smoldering passion with a man destined to leave her.

Simon has lived his Druid life in two very different worlds, two vastly different times, and when Helen practically lands in his lap, he knows his life is about to change forever. There are enemies in California lying in wait for her, and an army in Scotland closing in on his family. Simon is the only person who can protect her. But when she learns his most guarded secret, will she still want him? Can Helen love a Highland Shifter? [/tab] [/tabcontent] [/tabs]
