Colton 911: Family Under Fire

An unexpected family

A once-in-a-lifetime reunion in danger…

After a bitter breakup, FBI agent Everett Colton never expected to see his ex-girlfriend, Alyssa Bartholomew, again. Suddenly, tragedy reunites them—and makes them guardians of an orphaned baby girl. Everett suspects that her parents’ deaths were anything but innocent. When his instinct for danger proves correct, it’s his job to protect the child he’s grown to love…and the woman he never forgot.

Does your family support your career as a writer?
100%. My family are amazing and they're very proud of what I've achieved. My mum (who is 84), in particular, tells everyone she meets about "my daughter, the author"!

If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager to become a better writer as an adult, what would you do?
I always knew I wanted to write, but I never had the confidence to do it as a career. After trying a number of different things, I went into teaching (which was rewarding, and I don't regret it). Looking back, I wish I'd had the courage to say, right from the start "I want to be a writer".

How long on average does it take you to write a book?
It varies, but generally it's three to four months. I suppose that doesn't take into account "thinking time". In many ways, the book is already written in my head before I even type the first word.

Family Under Fire is part of the Harlequin's Colton 911. It is set in the fictional Arizona town of Cactus Creek. It's Christmas time and FBI agent, Everett Colton is back in his home town to investigate a murder. He's feeling less than festive and his mood is lowered even further when he comes face-to-face with the woman who dumped him four years earlier. But when the reason for their reunion becomes clear, he finds himself with a new family...and a dangerous stalker.
