Author Interview: Boone Brux of To Catch Her Death

Today on The Simple Things in Life I had the pleasure of chatting with Boone

1. What made you want to be a writer?

My twins. I’d dabbled in writing before they were born, but when they became toddlers I needed something to counteract Dora the Explorer.

2. Who is your favorite author?

I have a few. Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series. I also enjoy Christopher Moore’s vampire series. Soo funny. Both write humor and that’s what I really love.

3. What is the name of the last book you read?

Gabriella by Celia Kyle. The series is about three sisters mated to alpha weres. Very sexy and very fun.

4. Tell us about yourself in 3 words?

Not too serious.

5. What is your favorite activity?

Going to the movies. I don’t get to do it much so it’s always a real treat. I’m a sucker for a big screen, popcorn, peanut M & Ms, and a gigantic Coke Zero.

6. If your book could be made into a movie? Which actors would you have play the main two characters?

I’d love Jennifer Aniston or Reece Witherspoon to play Lisa.
As far as her male counterpart, any ruggedly handsome man who can kind of play an ass.

7. Who is your favorite character in your book?

Normally I like the secondary characters. But in this case I really like Lisa. She’s the girl next door. The mom who shows up at school, and a woman who is trying to find the warrior inside.

8. What's in your TBR ( to be read) pile?

Better off Dead by HP Mallory, Whitney by Celia Kyle (It’s not out yet), a ton of books by Shannon Mayer and Lilliana Hart.

9. What are 3 of your pet peeves?

Not changing the toilet paper roll, whining, and when somebody needs their ego stroked constantly.

10. What's your favorite ( cats or dogs), ( coffee or tea), and what's your favorite food?

Dogs, coffee, tacos

Book Description:

What do you get when you cross a hockey mom with the grim reaper? Me, Lisa Carron.

If being a depressed, frumpy, widowed mother of three wasn’t bad enough, I just discovered I’m a grim reaper. I know what you’re thinking. Wow, that’s kind of sexy and full of awesomeness. Hardly. Oh, and my clients? Stupid people. Like I don’t get enough of that from the living.

Since Alaska is big and angels of death are few, I’ve been partnered with reaper extraordinaire, Nate Cramer. He’s strong, silent, and way too good looking for my recently widowed state. Oh, and he reaps violent criminals, so that should be interesting.

Forget the danger and the hours of self-analysis it will take for me to find my reaper mojo. My biggest problem? Hiding it all from my overly attentive family and nosy neighbors. Now that’s going to take a miracle.

Short Excerpt:

“You’re not welcome here.” He took a step forward and I slapped my hand against the wall, blocking his path with my arm. If he was a grim reaper then maybe he couldn’t enter my house until he was invited—like vampires. “Be gone.”
He smirked. “I’m not a vampire.”
“I know you’re not. There’s no such thing.” I rolled my eyes, trying to give the impression I hadn’t totally been thinking that. “What do you want?”
“Give me ten minutes. Then I’ll leave and never bother you again.”
It sounded too good to be true. “Never ever?”
“I promise.”
He didn’t do any kind of scout’s honor hand gesture, so I didn’t know if I could completely trust him. “Ten minutes.”
In that amount of time, he could have me sliced up and vacuum sealed, but what choice did I have. I spun and walked into my kitchen. The idea of he being a grim reaper was the lesser of two evils made me want to laugh. Not in a haha, ironic isn’t it way. But a deeply disturbed things keep getting weirder and weirder way.
His footsteps followed. I cursed myself. He’d probably leave big, stupid dirt marks all over my sparkling floor. I scooped up my glass and turned to face him. My upbringing forced me to offer him a drink. “Would you like a glass of wine?”
He held up a hand and shook his head. “No, thank you.”
Hmm, very polite—for a killer. I pulled out the chair and sat, indicating he should do the same. I sipped slowly, wishing it was something stronger. “Okay, speak.”
He lowered himself into the chair and propped his elbows on the table, leveling a stare at me. “You are a grim reaper.”
“So you’ve said.” I took another drink and set down my glass. “Are we done?”
“Hardly.” He eased back and sized me up, his gaze narrowing. “All right then, you explain what happened at the Holiday station this morning.”
I considered giving him Vella’s explanation, but those reasons sounded even more ridiculous than reaping a soul. I decided to change tactics. “Let me ask you this. Why do you think I’m a reaper?”
“We recently lost one of our own and you came on our radar as the next reaper in line.”
“Lost one of your own?” I didn’t like the sound of that at all. “You mean one of your reapers died?”
He shifted in his chair. “Yes.”
“That’s a bit ironic isn’t it? The angel of death dying.”
He shrugged. “We’re mortal, tools for the greater good of mankind.”
I refrained from telling him how much of a tool I thought he was. “Isn’t the grim reaper immortal?”
“You watch too many movies.”
That was true but I didn’t confirm his statement.
