Interview & Contest: Emma Lang

Jen: Today I have the pleasure of welcoming Emma Lang to Romancing the Book. I got to meet Emma (aka Beth) at Authors After Dark this past summer where we snapped this photo.  Emma, thanks for joining us today.  Will you share a short bio with our readers?
Emma: Beth Williamson, who also writes as Emma Lang, is an award-winning, bestselling author of both historical and contemporary romances. Her books range from sensual to scorching hot. She is a Career Achievement Award Nominee in Erotic Romance by Romantic Times Magazine, in both 2009 and 2010.Beth has always been a dreamer, never able to escape her imagination. It led her to the craft of writing romance novels. She’s passionate about purple, books, and her family. She has a weakness for shoes and purses, as well as bookstores. Her path in life has taken several right turns, but she’s been with the man of her dreams for more than 20 years.Beth works full-time and writes romance novels evening, weekends, early mornings and whenever there is a break in the madness. She is compassionate, funny, a bit reserved at times, tenacious and a little quirky. Her cowboys and western romances speak of a bygone era, bringing her readers to an age where men were honest, hard and packing heat. For a change of pace, she also dives into some smokin’ hot contemporaries, bringing you heat, romance and snappy dialogue.Life might be chaotic, as life usually is, but Beth always keeps a smile on her face, a song in her heart, and a cowboy on her mind. 😉

Jen:  Where did the idea for Vaughn come from and how does this story fit into the Circle Eight series?
Emma:  Vaughn is the 4th book in the series – the idea for the book came from the first scene in which we meet Vaughn in all his naked glory when he falls at the feet of Elizabeth.

Elizabeth is the second oldest daughter, the serious minded Graham who maintained the financial health of the ranch. She finds a naked man on her doorstep and her life changes forever.

Elizabeth and Vaughn are forced together, kidnapped by men he has wronged. You see, Vaughn is a confidence man, a charlatan who tricks people into giving up money or property for his schemes. Now she is caught in the backlash of his latest trick. Together they have to find a way to right the wrongs Vaughn has wrought and return to the Circle Eight.

There is danger, intrigue, heat and humor, mixed with heartache and the urge to kick some ass.

Jen:  I understand you have a playlist for when you’re writing.  Will you share it with us?
Emma:  Here we go…



Jen:  Is there a genre you’d like to write?  Is there one you’ll probably stay away from?  Why?
Emma:  I write mostly historical westerns but I also mix it up with contemporary westerns and I’ve also published some erotica. If I had the time, I would love, love, love to write a medieval. That whole timeframe fascinates me! In terms of what I’d stay away from, probably paranormal because I simply don’t have the skills to do such amazing world building that these amazing authors accomplish. I’m in awe of such talent!

Jen: What’s next for you?
Emma:  Book 5 in the Circle Eight series, Nicholas, releases on February 25 in ebook and print. Woot! Then two weeks later, on March 11, the 10th book in the Malloy series, THE PROSPECT, releases in ebook from Samhain. Double woot!!

    I know you write under different pen names but do you write different genres with each pen name? Can’t wait to read this series. I don’t know how I missed it. Congrats on the new release.
