1. What genre(s) do you write?
I write a mashed-up mix of romantic action/adventure, drama and comedy (dramady?). My books are usually filed in “romantic suspense,” but it’s a bit of an odd fit.
2. Coffee or tea lover?
Coffee, but rationed! Only one mug/day, with coconut oil!
3. Name one thing on your bucket list.
I’d love to see one of my books made into a movie or TV series.
4. Do you have pets?
I have two miniature Schnauzers, Dexter (his full name is CK Dexter-Haven!) and his sister, Little Joe. They’re litter-mates, and Dex was the biggest, while LJ was the runt. (She is my inspiration—a small tornado of love and happiness, mixed with kickass determination!) Their 10th birthday is on Some Kind of Hero’s release date: July 11th!
5. When I wake up every morning I… Meditate while doing yoga stretches for ten minutes. Then crawl toward my coffee.
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
Memories from a dinner with Joss Whedon during ComicCon. I was one of five people to win a charity auction and get to sit and talk for hours and hours to this amazing writer and generous, thoughtful man. I received a lovely signed poster from the event, but nothing compares to that amazing experience.
7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?
I’m a musician. I started out as a songwriter—I sing and play guitar. In my late teens, I used to busk in Boston T-stations, I sang in coffee shops, and finally formed a band during the New Wave era in the late 1970s, early 80s. (We played clubs like The Rat, and The Channel, Bunratty’s…) Years later, I started an a cappella group called Serious Fun—with many of my former band-mates. For a while, we were the house “band” at the Boston 24-Hour Science Fiction Film Marathon. (Yes, we could sing the theme to Star Trek: The Next Generation in ten-part harmony, and our arrangement of the theme to MST3K always brought down the house!)
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?
I hope readers will always learn something new as well as widen their world-view—all while being wildly entertained!
Meet Suzanne Brockmann
After childhood plans to become the captain of a starship didn’t pan out, Suzanne Brockmann took her fascination with military history, her respect for the men and women who serve, her reverence for diversity, and her love of storytelling, and explored brave new worlds as a New York Times bestselling romance author. Over the past twenty-three years she has written more than fifty-five novels, including her award-winning Troubleshooters series about Navy SEAL heroes and the women—and sometimes men—who win their hearts.

Some Kind of Hero
Navy men don’t come tougher than Lieutenant Peter Greene. Every day he whips hotshot SEAL wannabes into elite fighters. So why can’t he handle one fifteen-year-old girl? His ex’s death left him a single dad overnight, and very unprepared. Pete can’t relate to an angsty teen, but at least he can keep Maddie safe—until the day she disappears. Though he’s lacking in fatherly intuition, Pete’s instinct for detecting danger is razor sharp. Maddie’s in trouble. Now he needs the Troubleshooters team at his back, along with an unconventional ally.
Romance writer Shayla Whitman never expected to be drawn into a real-world thriller—or meet a hero who makes her pulse pound. Action on the page is one thing. Actually living it is another story. Shay’s not as bold as her heroines, but she’s a mother. She sees the panic in her new neighbor’s usually fearless blue eyes —and knows there’s no greater terror for a parent than a child at risk. It’s an ordeal Shay won’t let Pete face alone. She’s no highly trained operative, but she’s smart, resourceful, and knows what makes teenagers tick.
Still, working alongside Pete has its own perils—like the heat between them rising out of control. Intimate emotions could mean dangerous, even deadly, consequences for their mission. No matter what, they must be on top of their game, and playing for keeps . . . or else Pete’s daughter may be gone for good.
