Interviewing My Heroine in My New Release: Deadly Fires: Rodeo Knights by Margaret Daley

On June 20th my new release is coming out. Deadly Fires: Rodeo Knights is my 9th book in my Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations Series. Right now it is up for pre-order at all retailers. One of the things a writer often does is interview their main characters to get a sense of who they are before they start writing. I live with my hero and heroine in my mind for a while before I start the story and then during the writing of their journey. The more I know about them the deeper I can go into their part of the story.

Interview with Alexia Richards, heroine from Deadly Fires, set in Montana

How did you end up working for a rodeo entertainment company?
My dad was a bull rider on the rodeo circuit for many years until he had to retire because of injuries. That was when he decided to form the Red Richards Rodeo Company. I started performing in some of his shows as a teenager. My specialty was trick riding. Now I’m working behind the scenes rather than performing.

How do you feel having to work with your ex-husband, Cole Knight?
Initially I was shocked. The last time I saw him was when we left the courthouse after our divorce. With Cole being deployed overseas a lot of our marriage, the separation took a toll on our relationship.

What is your favorite memory?
The day my son, Daniel, was born. Cole was there with me through the delivery. I never felt closer to him than in that moment.

What do you like to do for fun?
Ride my horse. I feel free when I do with no worries.

Why do you like performing tricks on your horse?
It’s exhilarating and dangerous at the same time. It’s a challenge that required a lot of work to perfect. One wrong move and I can end up hurt seriously.

What’s your favorite color?

Montana’s Blue Sky
