Friday Rebecca Austin is visiting and talking about Who She Was Before #MFRWAuthor #romance #contemporary #Regency


1.      What were you before you became an author? Did this influence your choice as a writer?


I am a full-time mom and wife, jobs I thoroughly enjoy. Until two years ago, I also worked in the financial industry.


My writing journey became a serious endeavor after I was pregnant with my son, years before my career in finance. Did my years at work help spark my creative juices and possibly motivate me to do something I enjoyed? Yes!


I think most people are motivated by the thought of doing something they love. I’m just glad I didn’t ignore the feeling.



2.      Are you genre specific or general?


Currently, I write both historical romance and contemporary romance.


In historical romance, my first series takes place during the regency period. My contemporaries are both in billionaire and small-town romance.



3.      What is your latest release?


Wedded by the Billionaire is my latest release. It’s a mistaken identity billionaire romance set in a city. This is book two in a three-part series featuring the billionaire brothers of Wheelcaster.


Tetsuo, the hero, is a man determined to control every aspect of his life, including his kinky one-night relationships. Until Tangela shows up on his doorstep and Tet mistakes her for his date.



4.      What are you working on now?


I’m so excited for my next project, an interracial recency romance coming out in July. Each novella showcases the rich history and success of people of color during the British Regency era.


As an author in the Regency in Color collaboration, I’m very proud. Also, we are having a good time. Among authors like Elise Marion, Celeste Barclay, Hildie McQueen, and five others, how can these novellas not be fun!


Each month until November, a new title drops. If you enjoy reading interracial regency romance, you will enjoy these stories.



5.      Does your reading choice influence your choice of a writing career?


I don’t think so. I write the stories I enjoy reading.


Between writing, I read a wide range of genres. While the majority are romance novels, I enjoy mystery and suspense too.


Writing started as an escape from the realities of living with Cystic Fibrosis. I love every aspect of it.
