Book Spotlight and Giveaway~ Teri Riggs' Resolutions

Talking with author Teri Riggs.....

Tell us your latest news?
I’m thrilled to say Resolutions is now available in print and will be out in audio version soon. Even though I didn’t win, I was honored to have Resolutions nominated for a 2013 Love Romances Café best Thriller/Suspense/Mystery award. 

When and why did you begin writing?
I started writing about fifteen years ago. I am an insomniac and needed something constructive to do while everyone else in my house slept away the hours. Yes, cleaning would’ve been constructive, but let’s be real here. Housework in the daytime is bad enough!

When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When I signed my first contract.

What inspired you to write your first book?
My family talked me into writing. They liked the way I could figure out the endings in movies and television shows. I wasn’t off base too many times. I also think they thought if I wrote my own stories, I’d quit ruining the endings of the ones they watched. Silly family, I still spoil their shows.

Do you have a specific writing style?
Not really. If anything I incorporate my dry sense of humor and sarcasm into my writing. I assume the more I write, the closer I’ll get to a specific style.

How did you come up with the title?
I used the name of the black ops company my hero, Mac, works for as my working title. It grew on me over time and I kept it.

DEA agent Eve Taylor has had her fill of alpha males. When Resolutions’ operative and former lover, Dillon “Mac” McKenna, threatened her hard-earned independence, she ran. On a mission to gather evidence against a Colombian drug-lord, Eve discovers the drug-lord is helping terrorists plan an attack on American soil. Before she can escape with the vital information, she’s captured and comes face to face with her mortality… 

As a teen, Mac watched his family fall apart after his mother died doing dangerous U.N. work. The possibility of losing Eve to a mission ignited an overwhelming need to protect her. When he forced her to choose him or her job, she walked away. Two years later, it seems all his nightmares have come true and he’s tasked with rescuing her from a Colombian prison. Mac has never stopped loving Eve, but does he dare risk his heart when he’s so terrified of losing… 

On the run, Mac and Eve must learn to trust each other again in order to stay alive.

Teri Riggs was destined to be a writer. As a small girl she didn’t read bedtime stories, she made up her own. Who needed Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs when there were so many great tales bouncing around in her head? When she grew up and became a mother to three little girls, she continued the tradition of making up bedtime stories. On the occasions she chose to tell conventional fairytales, Teri usually gave them a bit of tweaking here and there or added a new ending. Her girls loved it.

After her daughters had the nerve to actually grow up and leave home, Teri discovered she had a passion for writing and jumped right in. It came as no surprise she chose to write mysteries and happily-ever-after’s since that’s the genres she loves to read.

Teri lives in Marietta, Georgia with her husband, one of her daughters and two dogs that seem to think they rule the world. And some days Teri thinks maybe they do.

Teri still frequently tells herself stories as she falls asleep. The only difference now is she wakes up the next morning and turns her bedtime stories into books.
