The Novel Lady Interviews Author Avery Flynn

Get ready for an awesome experience!!  

I’m so excited to be here with Author Avery Flynn!  Avery Flynn is a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling romance author. As you can see under her picture to the left, she has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip (Coffee IV?  Oh yes!  She is definitely my kind of person!!).

She was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs. 

So grab a cup of coffee… or a glass of wine, and join us for a fun interview with this EXTREMELY interesting bestselling author!

Scherry:  Welcome Avery!  Thanks for joining us here at The Novel Lady.  Tell us a little about yourself and your background?

Avery:  Hey there! Thank you for having me! Let’s see, I’ve got three adorable mutts named Gravy, Pepper and Tater Tot (all rescues) and I cannot have Oreos in the house because I will eat the entire package of them. They are so good.

Scherry:  What do you do when you’re not writing?  Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures, aside from eating Oreos (which I totally understand)?

Avery:  I love true crime books, binge watch Netflix, and I like to do puzzles. I’m trying to get back into exercising thanks to some fab podcasts that I can listen to and forget that I am exercising.

Scherry:  Where do you do most of your writing?  Sitting on the couch with your feet propped up?  Steadfast at a writing desk?  Lounging on the beach with a recording device in your hand?

Avery:  I have a desk in my front room so I can look out the windows and type away. When I’m under deadline I go upstairs to the guest room and sometimes I like to go to Panera and write while eavesdropping. :)

Scherry:  You can probably get some good writing ideas while eavesdropping!  When and why did you begin writing?

Avery:  Oh, I’ve been writing in one way or another since I got a blue Big Brother typewriter in grade school. I started writing romance in 2010 because I knew exactly what kind of book I wanted to read but I couldn’t find it.

Scherry:  After reading your hot romantic comedy Harbor City series, I have become a HUGE fan! I LOVE the characters.  Sawyer and Clover were awesome together and the story about Sawyer’s brother Hudson and his fascination with Felicia gave me such tingles!!  And that picture of Hudson on the cover of “The Charmer”..… well, he could certainly charm me!!   
Most authors have a special place in their heart for a few particular characters or books. Which of your books or characters is your favorite and why?
Avery:  First off, thank you for reading the Harbor City series! I love those sexy Carlyle brothers. I love them all and hate them all (at least when I’m writing and it’s going slow - ha!). 
I don’t know if I have a favorite overall but I usually have a favorite in each series. For example, Frankie Hartigan in Muffin Top is my favorite in The Hartigans series because he’s just such a good guy who just needs to figure out his shit to be amazing.

Scherry:  I just started reading your latest release, “Parental Guidance”, Book #1 in your Ice Knights series and I’m loving it!  I understand you have another book in this series coming out in October.  Can you tell us a bit about it?

Avery:  Yes! Daddy Dilemma is out in October and it features hockey player Cole Phillips and Tess Gardner (who you first meet in The Hartigans). It’s a one night stand turned more when she finds out she’s pregnant. These two were the most fun. He is all uptight and stuffy and she is the best kind of awkweird. There are shenanigans galore and a HEA. Plus a crazy kitten named Kahn. :)

Scherry:  Where do you get your inspiration for what you write?

Avery:  Everywhere. It really is just how my brain works.

Scherry:  How long does it normally take you to write a book?

Avery:  It depends. If I have a long time until my deadline then I’ll take all that time, if I’m time crunched then I work faster.

Scherry:  What is next for you?  Other than “Daddy Dilemma”, do you have any other scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?

Avery:  Yes! There is one more Ice Knights book coming for sure, then there are more Hartigans books, and I have a really fun cowboy book coming out in 2020. Shenanigans galore!

Scherry:  Sounds great!  I will  definitely be on the lookout for that cowboy book! How can fans contact you/learn more about you?


Scherry:  Avery, thank you so much for joining us here at The Novel Lady!  I’m looking forward to seeing you at Coastal Magic in February!

Avery:  Thank you so much for having me!!!

Coming Soon!  Daddy Dilemma is due to be released October 14th, and although we can't see the cover yet, the book is up for pre-order... and it sounds like another fun one!

One night and my life completely jumped the tracks.

Actually, a pack of expired condoms did that –– the rest of the night was pretty amazing.
Open bar at a friend's wedding. Bad dancing all around. Stupid trivia bets with my fellow Ice Knights hockey teammates.
And Tess Gardner.
The factoid-blurting, fandom-T-shirt-wearing, no-I-don’t-want-a-relationship-with-you woman makes me forget for one night that I’m a man with a routine, and my future all mapped out. Still, it sucked she left our room without giving me her number.
Fast forward to when she tracks me down and tells me I'm going to be a daddy.
Jaw meet floor.
Now I've insisted that she and our little peach pit move in with me after her apartment floods. She agrees as long as there’s no funny business, no shotgun weddings, and no more nights spent naked together. Sounds easy enough.
I was prepared for the late night runs for more pickles and peanut butter but I wasn’t prepared for Tess. She’s like a glitter rainbow sparkling in the middle of my all-neutrals house, messing up my rigid schedule and turning my world upside down.
What the hell do we do next?
Each book in the Ice Knights series is STANDALONE:
* Parental Guidance
* Daddy Dilemma
