Christy Newton is a prolific writer! Today she shares blurbs from some of her books—one of which is on sale. Hi, Christy, please tell us a little about yourself.
Hi! I’m Christy Newton, a hopeless romantic who writes many genres of romance. I fall in love with each of my heroes and hope you will too! I’m the author of over ten novels. With love in the air, February is the perfect time for me to tell you a little about my romantic stories!
Stolen Hearts is the first book I ever wrote and it was published two years later! If you crave adventure, you’ll love Stolen Hearts and the rest of the More Than Treasure Trilogy. Ex-jewel thief Simon Fisher is a man of many hidden talents… protecting the daughter of his mentor is one of them. Cassie Adams may make Simon a better man, if she doesn’t kill him first!
The most recent book I released was Breaking Free, a young adult story that covers the very serious issue of abuse. Elin Skye sets out to break away from the monster who has a hold on her and her mother. She meets Sawyer Knight along the way and the two find themselves in more danger than they ever thought possible.
Your books sound intriguing. What food or beverages do you turn to while you are writing? Are you a stress eater on deadline or a “lack of inspiration” eater when ideas are not flowing?
I just might be the only author out there who doesn’t drink caffeine, (I know *gasp*) but dark chocolate is my must have. I always drink water with lemon. Occasionally, I’ll have a Sprite or Root Beer. I do tend to be a stress eater when a deadline is approaching. I eat dark chocolate Hershey Kisses more than I should.
I always have a stash of Dove dark chocolates in my pantry. Has writing changed how you read books now?
Yes! It is very hard for me to turn off my internal editor. I’d say I read more now than I ever had before becoming a writer though.
Good readers are good writers they say. What kind of response do you get when you tell people you are an author?
Most people think it is really cool. Sometimes I get a laugh or smirk when they find out I write romance.
Is there an aspect of writing that you favor over others, e.g. dialogue, exposition,
description of a scene, setting, or character, etc.? Is there one that is more difficult for you?
I love it all! I think my favorite is dialogue. I enjoy playful banter the most.
Please check out all my books! Trust Again is on sale!
