LJ Taylor - Law, Romance and Bad Boys

Today, Taylor is a successful lawyer and author who writes the types of stories she enjoys reading: page-turning suspense and romantic suspense novels. As our author of the day, Taylor chats about her latest novel, Dreams Deferred, bad boys and how her baby sister inspired the story of this book.

Now, several awards, several books and over 20 million reads later, Watson is still going strong writing books that leave readers in stitches and make them feel better about life. As our author of the day, Watson reveals what inspired her to write about a bride who was left by the altar, what she has in common with her characters and how much she hates writing love scenes.
