Yes, this was a previously published book under my real name, which I've decided to separate from my Male/Male romance stories. Although it was previously published, when I got the rights back, I did an extensive overhaul of the story and tightened it. Almost five thousand extra words were added, so I consider this a complete rewrite.

A Chat with Elizbeth Monvey!
Hello Elizabeth! Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today! It’s such a pleasure to chat with you. So tell me…
Q) How did you dream up the dynamics of your characters?
I used to travel with my parents every summer from the mid-west to the east coast, and we'd drive through some of the most beautiful country in America. For days, I'd watch the tractor trailers drive by, see the truckers in the truck stops, and how they'd bunk down in their rigs. I never thought it was glamorous, but I did think it was an interesting life. And a lonely one. One day the character of Kyle, running from his past, came to me and how it would be a normal way to turn to the the big trucks to escape something.
Q) Can you give a fun or interesting fact about your book?
Q) Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?
No, I don't. I usually write as the story comes to me. I may do some chapter outlines, so I know where to put what, but that's about as much plotting as I do.
Q) How much real life do you put into or influences your books?
I tend to place my stories in cities or places I know, so I'm able to put as much detail about the background as possible. I think it adds a believable layer to the story.
Q) What are your upcoming projects?
Truthfully, I'm not sure. I had a goal this year that I've met, by releasing this story and the sequel to "Dark Rider" titled "Dark Journey", and with those two met, I'm going to clear my mind and see what male/male romances I want to write. I loved writing the "My Boyfriend Is..." series, so I might write a few more of those, or maybe start another Romance on the Go series. Whatever it is, I'm excited to see where my imagination takes me.
