I am at the IRC (Indie Romance Convention) in Lebanon, TN. Sitting here with me is Author LK Shaw.
What genre do you write?
Contemporary BDSM/Romantic Suspense
Can you tell readers a little bit about yourself and do you read the same genre as you write?
My day job is as a physical therapy assistant. I work with the geriatric population in a skilled nursing facility. I have 1 spoiled, high-maintenance dog, Miss P. I enjoy traveling and meeting new people.
What inspired you to write in this particular genre?
I love a hot, sexy romance and BDSM has always intrigued me.
Where are you from?
Is there a character that you enjoyed writing more than any of the others?
I loved writing Bridget. She is sassy, a little bratty, but when she loves, she loves wholeheartedly.
Do you have a special formula for creating characters’ names?
Honestly, I don’t. I just pick random names.
Was one of your characters more challenging to write than another?
For sure! Connor Black was my most challenging character. He had been so hurt in the past that it was hard to break through his shell. He is also a sadist, which was extremely difficulty for me to identify with. I wanted to do his emotional needs justice
What is your motto?
I don’t know if I have a motto, per se. But, I do have a favorite Dr. Seuss quote that I try to live by. “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” ~ Dr. Seuss
What’s your guilty pleasure?
If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
That’s a tough question. There are so many people I would love to meet. I think Freddie Mercury would be close to the top. He was a lyrical genius and his music is absolutely timeless. He was such a talented musician.
Tell us your latest news?
I am currently workin on three projects. Book 3 in the Secrets series. Secrets of Redemption is due out in Spring, 2017. Protecting Katie, apart of a romantic suspense collection called The Smex Files will be coming Summer/Fall of 2017. and a secret project anthology will be coming out Summer 2017.
Thank you LK Shaw for taking the time to answers these questions.

About the Author:
LK Shaw is a physical therapist assistant by day and writer/social media addict by night. She resides in South Carolina with her high maintenance beagle mix dog, Miss P, who should probably just have her own Instagram account. An avid reader since childhood, she became hooked on historical romance novels in high school. It wasn’t until within the last seven or eight years she tried her hand at contemporary romances. Some of her favorite historical romance authors include Christi Caldwell, Courtney Milan, Mary Balogh, and Tessa Dare. Some of her favorite contemporary romance authors include Julia Sykes, Ella Dominguez, Skye Callahan, and Meghan March.
She initially began writing in November 2015 as part of National Novel Writing Month, when, suddenly, the story became something more than just writing on a whim. The vision for the story snowballed and, before she knew it, she began taking steps toward publishing. Each book in her first series feature Romantic Suspense and BDSM combined.
LK loves to interact with readers. You can follow her on any of her social media:
