How BOSS, Inc.was born?

My next book, INTO THE FIRESTORM, book #3 in my BOSS, INC. trilogy, is one of my all-time favorites.  In the novel, Luke Brodie is a bounty hunter, a guy who refuses to follow anyone’s rules but his own.  With his blue eyes and tall, lean-muscled body, Luke is one of the sexiest men alive (as far as I am concerned!)

Luke is in pursuit of the fat, six hundred thousand dollar bail enforcement fee if he brings in international criminal, Rudy Vance.

But Emma Sullivan is also hunting Vance.  It’s been almost a year since she arrived at her sister’s home to find the housekeeper murdered and her young niece the victim of Vance’s sick assault.

Emma is determined to find Vance and make him pay.  And no one–not even the infamous Luke Brodie–is going to stop her.

People have asked me how I came up with the concept for the BOSS, Inc. novels.  It actually started while I was writing my Alaska trilogy, AGAINST THE WILD, AGAINST THE SKY, and AGAINST THE TIDE.  In AGAINST THE SKY, Nick Brodie is a former homicide detective, a guy with a serious case of burnout.

As the story unfolds, Nick is searching for his place in the world, now that he’s no longer on the police force.  By the end of the novel, he has found the perfect job–as well as his perfect woman.

Samantha Hollis, raised in San Francisco, couldn’t handle the rugged Alaskan lifestyle.  I needed to find a job for Nick, a place his skills would be useful and both of them could be happy.

To do that, I came up with Ian Brodie, Nick’s cousin, the owner of a security and private investigations firm in Seattle.  My genius editor, Alicia Condon, came up with the name Brodie Operations Security Services, and the BOSS, Inc. trilogy came to life.

At the time, I hadn’t planned to write more than one, but the idea kept nibbling away at my subconscious.  I dabbled, started by writing a novella called AGAINST THE HEART, which became Ian’s story.  Since Nick and Ian were already working for BOSS, Inc, I decided to add Ethan and Luke Brodie, two brothers, one a private investigator, the other a bounty hunter.

Ethan’s book, INTO THE FURY became book one.  It turned out Ethan needed help to corral the two dozen sexy lingerie models he was guarding on a fashion show tour so he brought his best friend, Dirk Reynolds along.

Dirk, a private investigator/part-time bounty hunter, wasn’t meant to have a story of his own, but he was just so cute and he fell so in deeply in love with Megan O’Brien, one of the models, I had to give him a chance to win Meg’s love.  INTO THE WHIRLWIND is BOSS, Inc. book #2.

My new release, INTO THE FIRESTORM is the final book in the trilogy, a story I hope you will love.  Currently I’m working on my June release, BEYOND REASON.  I’ll be going to Texas with Lincoln Cain and Carly Drake.  I hope you’ll join me for another wild ride.  Till then, all best and happy reading, Kat

How to Spot a Serial Killer

Not every novel features one, but enough do that I’ve spent more than my share of hours in the bad guys’ heads. A not always pleasant place to be, but unfailingly educating, nonetheless.
