Top 5 List: Katy Swann

I’m a married mother of three, born in Copenhagen, Denmark and now living in Kent, UK.  I write BDSM romance and love to show the reader that a D/s relationship can be beautiful, sexy and romantic.

My new book, Behind the Scenes, tells the story of Evie, a ballet dancer, who had to give up dancing because of an injury.  She meets successful rock star, Aaron, but takes an immediate dislike to him because she assumes he’s an arrogant womaniser who could potentially break her heart.

Thanks to the Romancing the Book gang for having me here today!  I love a good anti-hero in both books and television shows.  My newest release, DEADLY SILENCE, has an anti-hero in t he form of tough guy PI Ryker Jones.

After I finish writing a book, I usually binge watch part of a season of a show either on Netflix or one I recorded.  Most of these shows have anti-heroes in them.
