An Interview with TR Lykins by Dowie's Place

1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? 
I love books and everything about them. I read most genres and like to try new ones. Love giving new authors a chance by reading their stories. Since I started writing, I have had to cut back on my reading or I would not finish my stories. I am married and have two sons, which all three of these awesome guys are the loves of my life. I am a stay at home mom, but I believe this saying isn't what most think it is, because I work harder at home than any place I have ever worked and yes I have worked many years at various jobs. One is, ten years in the medical field, which helped me with writing these stories. I am a reviewer for the books I read and I currently organize a fifty plus book club monthly, which I invite authors to either join or Skype with my book club. I even stalk my favorite authors because they are all awesome and they even take the time to answer my questions.

2. Do you ever experience writer's block? 
  Yes! Doesn't everyone? 

3. How did you come up with the title? 
  I have to tell you how I came up with both book titles. Last Heartbeat really speaks for itself because the main character happens to get a miracle while on her Last Heartbeat. The Life Gift, I know is a mouth full, but the main character in this book does something to help her best friend which is a gift of life. 

4. Do you base your characters on people you know? If yes, do you tell them? 
  No, my characters are fictional but I do use people's names and no, I don't tell them because if they want to see their name's they have to read my books for their surprise.

5. Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans? 
  Never give up on your dreams and always live life to the fullest everyday. Only you, can make your dreams possible. I hope my readers love my stories, even though I write clean romance because my focus is on the story lines and I want everyone to be able to read them. I will not change they way I write, because I want my kids never to be embarrassed or afraid to tell someone that their mother wrote those books. I have been told to have a box of kleenexes beside you while reading my stories. I love books that have happily-ever-after and hope that is something that happens for my readers who reads my stories.

Thank you for letting me do this interview! ~ T R Lykins
