Have Gown, Will Wed by Killian McRae .
Audience/Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance, Chick Lit.
Publication: September 18, 2013 by Tulipe Noire Press.
Back in college, the bras-before-bros sisterhood decided to live for achievement in the boardroom, not the bedroom. Rosalind Betters embraced that philosophy, pursuing her career and little else. But when her last single friend, Kamakshi, announces her engagement in of all things, an arranged marriage, Rosalind reevaluates the merits of matrimony. In her typical gung ho fashion, she names a date, books a venue, hires a caterer, and picks out a dress, all before finding a groom. Taking a lesson from Kamakshi and too busy to do otherwise, Rosalind hires San Francisco's best headhunter, Xavier Hommes, to find her better half for her.

At first, Xavier thinks Rosalind is one of those eccentric personalities for which the city is famous. As he comes to know her, however, Xavier finds himself hating his task for reasons he never would have suspected. If Rosalind really wants a man who will make her happy, she need look no further. As W-Day approaches and Rosalind starts falling for someone Xavier himself headhunted, he walks the line between professionalism and passion, trying to decide if competing to become Mr. Betters is worth the risk to his commission, his reputation, and Rosalind's happiness

Guest Post- Interview with Killian McRae

WHEN DID YOU FIRST REALIZE YOU WANTED TO BE A WRITER?

Honestly, I’m still not sure I want to be a writer. I love telling stories, but I love having conversations with people anymore. But to back step and give you a better answer, I started writing little stories when I was in elementary school (as well as poems and later, music), and I just never stopped. Okay, well, I don’t write music anymore, but the other stuff, yeah…

DO YOU HAVE A ROUTINE THAT GETS YOU IN THE RIGHT FRAME TO WRITE?

Honestly, between three jobs and two kids, I don’t have time for routine. I have to seize the few minutes I get a day to write as they come to me and to hell with the frame of mind I’m in. I remind myself I can always go back and edit later.

WHERE DO YOU GET THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR CHARACTERS?

I’ve been working and living in Silicon Valley since 2000. Both Rosalind and Xavier are amalgamations of many of the people I have met through the years, representing two very different sides of the Valley Real: the rational, pragmatic engineers, and the holistic… well, everyone else. Most of Rosalind’s character is based on a group of women engineering students I grew close to about 10 years ago who are now all in their mid-30’s and working in industry.

WHAT BOOKS HAVE MOST INFLUENCED YOUR LIFE?

Les Miserables (Victor Hugo) is a book that I come back to and re-read about every five years. To me, it is the perfection of characterization (though even I get a little weary during the 30-page treatise on the Battle of Waterloo or the essay about how Paris need use its own human waste for agricultural betterment). A book that really opened my eyes to the way societies function was Paolo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed. I weaved my moral fiber cutting from the cloth of L.M. Montgomery’s Avonlea series.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT WRITING?

This implies free time and honestly, I don’t get too much of that. Writing is what I do in my free time, so if I’m not doing it I’m working or taking care of my family. I do get in the occasional hike in the mountains or trip to the beach.

ANY FUTURE WRITING NEWS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE?

I’m working on book three in the Pure Souls series at the moment, and hoping I can get that out in the spring.

Killian McRae would tell you that she is a rather boring lass, an authoress whose characters’ lives are so much more exciting than her own. She would be right. Sadly, this sarcastic lexophile leads a rather mundane existence in the San Francisco Bay Area. She once dreamed of being the female Indiana Jones, and to that end she earned a degree in Middle Eastern History from the University of Michigan. However, when she learned that real archaeologist spend more time lovingly removing dust with toothbrushes from shards of pottery than outrunning intriguing villains with exotic accents, she decided to become a writer instead. She writes across many genres, including science fiction, fantasy, romance, and historical fiction
