For several years I’ve been asked these questions. So, in no particular order, here are my answers.
Q. Who is Ivy James?
A. Ivy James is a pen name I took on to separate my older, sexier titles, from my current/sweet romance.
Q. Will there be more Ivy James books?
A. At this time, no. I’m focusing on writing family-friendly romance that can be shared by grandmothers to granddaughters.
Q. I have a story idea and I want you to write it. Will you?
A. No, but thanks. ☺
Q. Will all of your books be set in Wilmington?
A. No. At the moment I’m working on a series that is set in my fictional town of Carolina Cove which is in the Wilmington area, but my settings will change according to the story.
Q. Did you stop writing?
A. Yes, for quite some time. Some writers are able to write during difficult times, but I am not one of them. For a while there, I wondered if I would ever write again. But by the grace of God, here I am.
Q. Are your books Christian fiction?
A. No. Kay Lyons books are sweet contemporary romance and romantic suspense. There’s kissing, lots of flirting, maybe some sexy references, but it’s PG 15.
Q. Do you have a writing partner?
A. LOL Only my dog, Harley. She’s great for keeping me company while I’m at my desk, but does little to earn her keep.
Q. Am I the character you wrote about in your book titled ????
A. (LOL) No. Sorry for bustin’ your ego, but my stories are fiction. ALL fiction. Any similarity in a character is purely coincidental.
