Part Two of Kacey Hammel's stop!

Kacey Hammel is dropping back by with an interview! Enjoy!

Welcome aboard! Tell us a little about yourself, please.

Thanks for hosting me on your blog!  I’m a mom of three awesome kids, wife to an amazing and loving hubby and a writer who sometimes struggles to find time to write. But, I’ve never been happier.

What about your latest release?

SINFUL is a contemporary erotic romance about an aspiring singer and a songwriter/record producer who enters her life unexpectedly. They work hard, love their music and love those around them wholeheartedly. Together, they make beautiful music.

Ok, let’s get down to the fun stuff. If you were stranded on a lush tropical island, and all of your basic needs were met, what two items would you have with you? What person would be with you? Remember, you’re stuck there for an indefinite period with only each other to occupy the time.

With my hubby of course. Cell phone and camera – have to call the kids periodically (if there is a signal, if not—oh well ROFL), and camera to remember the time we were carefree and just being together. Wouldn’t that just be priceless time!

I know down deep I’ve had fantasies of Matthew McConaughey and I stranded together but… J

If you could play opposite any of your lead characters, which one would it be and why?

I always thought Brady, from Illusions would be my main man, but while he’s still very near and dear to my heart (being my first! LOL), Dare in my current WIP makes me salivate. He’s a P.I. too, though works exclusively for a law firm, and nearly drives me to my knees whenever he’s around. He’s delicious. I’d want to be around him all the time!

If you could lead any of your secondary characters, which one would it be and why?

Hmm, probably Connor from Illusions. He’s Isabella’s partner, and a tortured hero – can’t tell you why til his story – and I think it’s going to be the most emotional story I’ll have written this year (or at least start this year).

You’re locked in a closet with Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, three paperclips and a string. How do you get out?

Dammit, do I have to get out? I mean, could I just push Kate out and fend for myself?? Oh, no, can’t cuz the door is locked. Hmm, well, I’ll push her into the corner and ignore her. That’s the ideal dream of course, and I wouldn’t even try to get out if I’m stuck between JD and CF. I’d be quite content between them.

Name five things you can do with a pencil.

Scratch my back just under the shoulder blade where my fingers can’t reach!
Curl my hair, then stick pencil in to make a bun, and get any dang strands out of my face.
I frequently tap pencils as if playing the drums. I always wanted to play the drums…
And I joke w/ my daughter (who’s 15) to always have a sharpened pencil in her purse…never know when a boy will get out of hand…or if vampires will attack (good for stabbing through the heart) *g*

Who’s your favorite character from your book(s)? Why? Don’t worry, we won’t 

Oh good, thanks for not telling. These characters can be quite possessive and domineering. They like being the center of my attention—all of them, at the same time. It’s difficult!

While the men are lusty and sexy and delicious…Isabella, from Illusions holds 
a very near and dear spot in my heart. A lot of friends/family that have read the story say that she and I have a lot in common and that our red hair should be outlawed for our tempers LOL

She also holds a personal connection of never believing true love would find her. With my own personal life, after tragedy and abusive past, love wasn’t even on my radar years ago. So Isabella’s emotional struggles are identifiable for me and while she’s tough-as-nails like I am, we’re both relentlessly protective about those we care about and hate being vulnerable.

Where can we find you around the vast interwebs?
