Interview with Katie Lane, Author of A Match Made in Texas and Giveaway


[Manga Maniac Café] Good morning, Katie!  Describe yourself in five words or less. 

[Katie Lane] A creative, wacky romantic.

[Manga Maniac Café] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without? 

[Katie Lane] My antibacterial gel.  I have a bottle in my car, in my purse, in my coat pocket, and in my husband’s truck.  What’s even weirder is that I don’t use it very often.  I just need to know that I have it in case some weird bacterial virus shows up and I need to wipe it out and save the world.   

[Manga Maniac Café] Name three things on your desk right now. 

[Katie Lane] A picture of my daughters.  A bag of Sunny Cranberry Trail Mix.  And dental floss because the pepita seeds in the mix can really get in-between your teeth and annoy the heck out of you.

[Manga Maniac Café] If you could trade places with anyone for just one day, who would you be? 

[Katie Lane] Trade?  As in they would take over my life for a day? 

Martha Stewart.  My house needs to be cleaned, decorated, and organized in a major way, and my husband could use a home-cooked meal.  Meanwhile, I would spend the day writing in Martha’s garden, feeding her chickens, and eating all the great food in her refrigerator.

[Manga Maniac Café] What are some books that you enjoyed recently?

[Katie Lane] I love holiday books so I enjoyed Susan Mallery’s Christmas on 4th Street and Debbie Macomber’s Starry Night.  Since the first of the year, I’ve been reading a daily devotional Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.

Thanks for hosting me, Manga Maniac Café!  It’s always a pleasure.

[Manga Maniac Café] Thank you!


Living with four over-protective brothers is enough to make a good girl go bad. But the day Brianne Cates hits the road for a taste of freedom, she gets more trouble than she bargained for when she’s arrested by a sexy sheriff in mirrored shades. Now doing a stint of community service, she’s not going to let a cowboy cop like Dusty Hicks mess with her newfound independence-even if he awakens every wicked fantasy she’s ever had.
In Bramble, Texas, Dusty is the law. That means no leniency for the gorgeous rebel whose highway antics almost got them both killed. The divorced lawman doesn’t need another rich, pampered princess, even if Brianne has the lushest body and sweetest smile in the whole darn state. But even as Brianne proves that she lives to walk on the wild side, Dusty begins to wonder if maybe he has what it takes to tame her.

    I’m like Katie, a creative, wacky romantic. I read romances (primarily western or historical), I’m a little zany and I enjoy making things with my hands (crafts, cooking, gardening, etc.). I always wanted to be a writer, but that was like wishing I could sing…my mind just isn’t creative in that way or a natural storytelling talent. The last person I’d trade with for a day, though, would be Martha Stewart. I’m not into perfection, like Martha is. I’m not a slob, and I appreciate cleanliness, but my home has a “lived in” look to it. 🙂 Thanks for the post.

    @Janice – I would like of like Martha to fill my freezer with home-cooked meals so I wouldn’t have to cook for about a month. I hate cooking!
