After a billion people watch you make love, where do you hide?

A fake persona with very real emotions...

As "Matt Jones," CEO playboy Michael Bournham has just stumbled into his
wildest dream and worst nightmare while playing a middle-management
employee role for a reality television stunt. Getting caught making love
 with his administrative assistant, Lydia Charles, on camera let
unscrupulous Hollywood producers blackmail him before launching the
video on YouTube. Fired from his job and ridiculed on social media, Mike
 needs to hit "reboot" on his life. Hiding Lydia away in Iceland with a
made-up job, he sends his best friend Jeremy to watch over her.
Meanwhile, he disguises himself once more and booked a cabin at Lydia's
family's campground in Maine, to immerse himself in her world.
A best friend with deeper intentions...
After more than a decade of world travel and hedonistic fun, dot-com
millionaire Jeremy wants more out of his friendship with Mike, but more
than that – he wants Lydia. Struck by her beauty and essence, he follows
 Mike's order and obeys, courting her with a friendship that quickly
becomes a deeper bond, charged by Lydia's fantasies about him – and Mike.
 Unable to resist, he becomes her confidante and bedmate, helping her to
 come to grips with her impulsive decisions and to find her way back
home to Maine.
A woman torn by desire...
Lydia accepts the move to Iceland to become the Director of Communications
for European Operations not realizing it's a sham position Michael
Bournham created to help hide her from the firestorm of the viral sex
tape. Living in a new country should be fun, but side glances and
whispers from her new Icelandic employees dig at her. Ignored by her new
 boss at Bournham Industries, Lydia's disenchantment with her bold move
is softened only by Jeremy's appearance. Wild and loose, he fills a void
 in her life – and soon fills her bed.
When she decides there's no place like home, the new couple embarks for her
family's campground – and Jeremy's suspicious obedience will be
revealed.




Where were you born and where do you call home?

I was born in South Carolina, but mostly raised in Ohio, and am now a New Englander through and through. I love living outside of Boston.

What or who inspired you to write?  And how long have you been writing?

I began writing when I was quite young, and in third grade I had a creative writing and reading class that made me realize “Hey! People make money writing!” There was this poet who came to our class, named Smokey Rampersad, and she was so vibrant and smart and funny and interesting that my little 9-year-old self became inspired. 

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

Around the age of 16. I wrote for the school newspaper and then became the editor-in-chief. Then I went into academic work for a while, then business writing. Business writing pays more! But fiction's even better... ;)

What is the name of your most recent book and if you had to sum it up in 30 or less words, what would you say?

Suspiciously Obedient. After 1 billion people watch you make love, where do you hide? In Iceland, with the best friend of the guy who betrayed you. 

I love reading the warnings on the blurbs for many books. If you could write a warning label for yourself as a person or an author, what would it say?

As an author: When the blurb says “What if she doesn't have to choose?” between two men, believe it.

As a person: Don't underestimate me. Ever.

If you gave some of your characters an opportunity to speak for themselves, what would they say?

They would say: “Please make Julia get up from the computer and shower more often when she's nearing deadline. And she doesn't share the chocolate. It's not fair.”

Which character speaks the loudest, to you? Do any of them clamor to be heard over the others?

Darla (from Random Acts of Crazy) just BUST OUT INTO MY HEAD like a screaming freight train one day while I was driving (where else? On the interstate). The first line hit me – and the entire book went from there.

Do your characters try to make like bunnies and create ever more convoluted plots for you? Or do you have to coax them out of your characters?

YES. The characters create the plots. I am just the host.

Have you based any of your characters on someone you know, or real events in your own life?

I have, but because I prefer to live, I won't divulge any of that.

Do you have plans for a new book?   Is this book part of a series?

Oh, yes. Suspiciously Obedient is book 2 in a trilogy; Deliciously Obedient is next, coming in the fall. I'm also finishing It's Complicated, a much-anticipated book that combines characters from my Her Two Billionaires series with Random Acts of Crazy. After THAT there's Random Acts of Trust, which tells the story of the drummer in the band from the book Random Acts of Crazy.

See? The characters take over.

Where do you see yourself in five (5) years?

Writing. In Greece :)

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Wherever someone else cleans for me. Or Costa Rica.

What can we expect from you in the future?  ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?

Some of my books will be traditional male-female romances, and I'm also writing historical romances (Regencies!) under a different pen name. 

Have you ever read a book more than once?

The World According to Garp. A million times. I've read Wallbanger by Alice Clayton a few times, The Supermodel's Best Friend by Gretchen Galway, and Unveiled by Courtney Milan.

Is there anything you would change in your last book and why?

Random Acts of Crazy is a menage romance novel, and I struggled with that – I thought about making it just a male-female story. I wondered: would readers accept a traditional male-female book from me, or are they drawn to the menage element of my books? I wasn't sure. So I get some criticism in some reviews for the threesome aspect – which tells me, though, that there's plenty of room for me to write male-female-male romances and male-female romances. Yippee! Because I love to write both kinds.

Do you write under a pen name?

Yes.

Just For Fun

Coffee or Tea?

Tea? What is this tea you speak of? I love Chai Tea

Favorite  Food?

Nutella, brie and a strawberry on a toothpick.

Vanilla or Chocolate Ice Cream?

Dude. I have to pick between those two? What about Phish Food?  LOL

Where and when do you prefer to do your writing?

Wherever I don't have a small child yanking on my arm.

If you were deserted on an island, who are 3 famous people you would want with you?

The three most famous shipbuilders, whoever they are.

One of your favorite quotes -

“Let go or be dragged.”

List 3 of your all time favorite books?

Lost in the Funhouse by John Barth
The Supermodel's Best Friend by Gretchen Galway
The World According to Garp by John Irving

List 3 of your all time favorite movies?

When Harry Met Sally
Mindwalk
The Hangover

An actor you have a crush on -

Zach Braff

What is a movie or TV show that you watched recently and really enjoyed?

The IT Crowd (catch it on Netflix). Mostly because I'm crushing on Chris O'Dowd these days.

USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent turned to writing romance novels after learning that she could not work as a fighter pilot because her fear of flying disqualified her. Turning to her second love, she became a dog groomer, but had to abandon that job after adopting too many strays. Writing about very real, very flawed people is a natural extension of her life and, well, her. She lives on the east coast with her partner, two small children, seventeen dogs that weigh less than fifteen pounds each, and a monthly consumption of Nutella, brie and french bread that makes cardiologists cringe.
