3 Questions Wednesday with Katie Clark

My friend, author Katie Clark, is our guest today. She has a brand new book releasing called Securing the Handyman’s Heart.

With great pleasure, we welcome her to 3 Questions Wednesday!

First question–

What inspires you?

Katie: Life! Adventure, love, humor, pain…life. When I see something that evokes passion in others, it automatically gets my mind to moving with inspiration.

Love that thought. 🙂 Now…

You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

Katie: Wow! That is a toughie! I think, though, playing off my last answer, that maybe I’d be a deep shade of red called Passion. Too cliché? *shrugs*

I agree. Life could definitely be colored red. Last question…

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Katie: All. The. Things. Haha 😊. I wanted to be a writer (yep, I was writing stories even in grade school), a business woman (I always wanted to wear smart suits with my hair in an up-do), a secretary (I’m not sure why, that just always seemed glamorous to my child-brain)…the list goes on. But I guess, looking back, it means I was always a dreamer. Through books I can be all these things and more!

I haven’t thought of it that way. Great answer! Thanks so much for stopping in today!

Katie is graciously offering a Kindle copy of her book, Securing the Handyman’s Heart to one person who leaves a comment. It could be you!


Securing the Handyman’s Heart

Local cupcake queen Kayla Dobbs is feeling the heat—just as her bakery is finally taking off, her retired parents start pressuring her to move to Florida. Determined to prove her success, she takes on extra work at the bakery and fibs a little about the depth of her love life. When her mother announces an upcoming visit to meet the lucky guy, Kayla makes a pact with her friends to get a proposal from George Marks, town handyman extraordinaire. The problem is, George seems totally indifferent.

George Marks has enough on his plate with running his business, taking care of an ailing but feisty grandmother, and the possibility of a new business venture on the horizon. But when bumping into Kayla becomes a strangely routine thing, he’s surprised to realize it has also become the highlight of his days. As business spirals out of control and Granny takes a turn for the worse, he’s sure he made one too many commitments. 

With a dash of matchmaking granny and a pinch of secret cupcake recipe, Kayla and George find themselves in one messy kitchen. But will they find themselves in love?
