Twenty-eight-year-old Kate Delaney left New Falls, Tennessee, heartbroken but determined to be a successful screenwriter. She’s spent the last ten years in LA, but is back in town, fifty pounds lighter, California hotter, and she’s written The End on a screenplay, which is movie magic in the making. Just one problem—a nerve-nuking thief runs-off with her laptop, attached USB back-up, and the contents of her underwear drawer—and as if that wasn’t enough, the heartbreaker from ten years ago just walked through the door with a sheriff’s badge and looking more hormone-carbonating than ever.
Quentin Taylor likes the new and improved Kate, but to be honest, his feelings aren’t new. When a teen-aged Kate bloomed, her older brother Reese established a no-look, no-touch, no-anything else rule. Quentin figured it was the anything else that worried him most. Attractive then, now she was irresistible, and he needed to know one thing. Was touching her still off-limits?
Despite a meddling, matchmaking mother, a gossiping dispatcher/receptionist with an obsession for orange, and a small-town burglar who steals thimble collections, garden tools, and underwear, Quentin and Kate search for her missing script and try not to fall for each other as they get Lost in New Falls.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I actually write in two different genre–Young Adult and Contemporary Romance. I love them both for different reasons. When I write Young Adult, I love being able to explore the newness of life experiences and how they change a character through an often universal story of self-discovery.
Contemporary Romance is fun for me because I love sharing such a frightening and mysterious, yet wonderful, part of life–falling in love. Writing romance gives such a great view into the way two people connect and navigate the strange newness of a beginning relationship.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t put your dreams off, waiting for “some day.” Research the craft of your genre to learn as much as you can about writing at this time. I studied author’s websites to read about their journey’s, the advice they gave, and their blogposts about their process. I took classes, but above all, I wrote. The last piece of the puzzle was to get a support group. They critiqued my work, educated me about the business, and kept me accountable.
It all started with an old-fashioned typewriter. When the family brought it home, all those stories and characters rolling around in her head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys satisfied in their own right, but when she pulled out a finished page, she knew this was for her. Since then, she’s graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.
She’s a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning–a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, she loves to make people laugh and smile. Her goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always written stories but figured I had a while to publish. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, and though I’m getting all good health reports four years later, it was a wake up call. I joined my local chapter of RWA and attended the 2010 RWA National Conference. During the time I was off work due to a chest infection, I wrote and wrote and wrote. I finished a short story and I contracted to publish it through an e-press publisher. Then, I continued writing. Though Lost in New Falls came about a year later, writing it was a direct result of my new-found motivation.
