Tori Scott, Author of “Lone Star Justice”

What is your book about?

I have ten out so far, but Lone Star Justice is my romantic suspense. The tag line is: A home-grown killer blows a small town’s secrets wide open…

And the blurb: Judge Madelyn Cooper never shows signs of weakness, but when a killer threatens her daughter’s life, Maddie does what any mother would do. She runs to the one place where her daughter will be safe. That place is her home town of Greendale, Texas, where everyone knows their neighbors. But do they, really?

Rand McCade is determined to keep Greendale safe. As Sheriff, he promised there would be no repeats of the horrible day when his parents were murdered. Now Maddie is back, bringing trouble with her once again. And this time, she has a daughter. His daughter.

As a psychopath sets his sights on Maddie, Rand and Maddie must figure out who is after her, and why, before someone else ends up dead.

What’s your writing schedule like? Do you strive for a certain amount of words each day?

I start writing after my husband goes to bed, and after Facebook, Twitter, and email have died down for the day. I usually write from 11pm until about 4am.

Do you have a favorite snack food or favorite beverage that you enjoy while you write?

I nearly always have a soft drink and some almonds handy when I’m writing.

What are you working on right now?

I’m working on the sequel to Blame it on Texas, set on a ranch in West Texas.

Are you writing to reach a particular kind of reader?

I have fans that range in age from 13 to 87. Both men and women. I just want to reach anyone who loves a good story.

Have you always wanted to be a writer?

Yes. My sixth grade teacher was my earliest champion. But I let getting married and having children divert me for a few years.

Do you have mental list or a computer file or a spiral notebook with the ideas for or outlines of stories that you have not written but intend to one day?

I have a computer file full of ideas, the beginnings of stories I intend to write one day. But first I have sequels that have to be completed…

Describe your writing in three words.

Character-driven romance.
