R.L. resides in the Atlanta area with some cool dudes: her husband, son and two crazy dogs. She was born and raised in the South. She attended Georgia Southern University and moved to Washington, D.C. to intern in the United States Senate during the impeachment trial. Falling in love with the city, she went to law school at American University, Washington College of Law. By A Thread is R.L.’s second book, but is the first in a series that got her back into writing after a ten year hiatus. She writes anything from romantic suspense to psychological thriller to romantic comedy. One of the things that readers always say is they never know what kind of story they will get from R.L.
Why do I write?
I seriously can't sleep! Once the characters get a hold of my brain it's hard not to get it all out. I just write it down. I wrote my first book as an escape and to de-stress from law school. (i know this sounds crazy!)
What do you like to read?
I love reading, have since I learned how. My parents would take me every weekend to the book store or the library. I had every single Babysitter's Club book. I read three books at a time and I LOVE all the new adult fiction being published. I like any book with interesting characters. I like a good story and authors who bring their characters alive --well they inspire me!
Are you a serial reader?
My friends think I'm nuts. Yes, I love to read on the treadmill, in the middle of the night, on the weekend and even listen to audiobooks as I tour the state of GA for my real job! I am on my 2nd kindle in two years. First one just gave up and said I'm done reading! When my first kindle broke my husband was excited because he thought we would talk again, I just bought another.
Your books are Fiction Right?
Of course, but I've been known to take a few things from life experiences. Also, I can't really curse in my real life (that much), so I do it in my books. (My mom can deal with it better that way!)
