5 SECRETS (What No One Knows About My Book)

Our guest author today is Angela Smith, who is going to share some tidbits about the writing of her book that no one knows--until today.

During her senior year in high school, Angela Smith was dubbed most likely to write a novel, and that has been her dream ever since her mother read Brer Rabbit to her and her sister so often that they were able to recite it back to each other before actually learning to read. She’s always enjoyed stories about the adventure of love, and getting involved in the legal field developed her love of suspense. A certified paralegal, work gives her perfect fodder for her romantic suspense stories. When not caring for her small farm or spending time with her husband of two decades, she enjoys creating, reading, and dreaming of the places she’ll visit one day.


1. My husband gave me the idea of the groom being kidnapped at his own wedding. Of course, he thought someone should die and I argued that I couldn’t allow a hero, or past hero, to die in my second book.
2. I tend to add tidbits in my stories about things that interest me, For instance I have always been infatuated with Native American history. I used to write book reports on American Indians and read just about every American Indian romance novel back in my younger years. Although Fatal Snag is not an American Indian romance, Chayton learns about his Sioux heritage and meets his mother for the first time.

3. I had to re-write the last climatic scene during the editing process with my editor and it is not the original I had written. It is better, though.
4. Fatal Snag is the 2nd in a stand-alone series and the characters in this novel were first introduced in Burn on the Western Slope.
5. Fatal Snag was not the original title of this story before I submitted. I had a long list of possible titles and had originally intended to l keep my standalone series with similar titles, but Fatal Snag overtook all the others.

Blurb for Fatal Snag

Hollywood fashion consultant Naomi Fisher is happy to use her obsessive-compulsive planning to assist with her cousin's wedding, but her history with the sexy and sullen Chayton Chambers, the groom’s brother, terrifies her. When the groom is kidnapped at his own wedding, Chayton and Naomi rush to find an important relic to satisfy the ransom before her cousin becomes a widow before a bride. Naomi trades garters for guns as survival, and love becomes a deadly game impossible to resist.
