I’m excited to have a sister Rose (published by The Wild Rose Press) here today. Please welcome Liv Arnold, author of Law & Disorder, which just happens to be on sale!
At what age did you write your first story? I think when I was four. I used to love making up picture books and stories. Was my favourite thing to do.
Which genre was the first to hook you? I read a lot of Enid Blyton when I was young. I would read The Children of the Cherry Tree Farm to my younger brothers before bed.
What was your first published book? This one, Law & Disorder, by The Wild Rose Press. I also have a novel called Etched in Stone, a contemporary romance, contracted with them.
What’s your favorite part of the writing process? Brainstorming? Research? Outlining? Writing? Editing? When I’ve almost finished the novel. Gives me a sense of accomplishment.
What are you working on now? A YA fantasy romance set in the Netherworld. I’ve almost finished it and I’m so excited.
Cool! My YA fantasy series, Guardians of Erin, has several scenes set in the Netherworld! Of all the settings you’ve used (or created!) for your books, which is your favorite? Why? The above story set in the Netherworld. Fantasy is one of my favourite genres. I love being taken into another world. Always wished I had magic when I was young or could fly.
Have you ever dreamed about a character you created? I usually don’t remember my dreams. So I haven’t dreamt of any of my characters yet. I do have my book boyfriends though I wouldn’t mind dreaming about.
If you could have a conversation with anyone—dead or alive—who would it be? JK Rowling. Would love to know everything about her. Especially her marketing tips and where she gets her ideas from. I get writer’s block so often.
If you could travel to any time and place, when and where would that be? Maybe the 70s. It could be because I’ve seen most the episodes of That 70s Show. But things seemed like so much fun back then.
I was a little kid in the ’70s, and yes, it was fun! If you could step inside any book or series and live there for a week, which would you choose? Harry Potter. I’m obsessed and have all the merchandise.
If a fairy godmother appeared and offered you one thing—anything at all—what would you request? To be able to write novels full time. I’m so tired coming back from work everyday but I have to push myself to write.
I hear ya! Okay…it’s time to learn some of your favorites.

Thanks so much for joining me today, Liv. Best of luck with your future releases and this sale! Now, here’s the scoop on Law & Disorder:
Lawyer Juliet Jackson has come head to head with Sergeant Jesse Burns on numerous occasions in court. He is provoking. Pigheaded. Punch-worthy. They don’t get along. Not one little bit. The unfortunate fact he’s also her next-door neighbor brings her loathing off the charts. But when Juliet’s caught locked outside her home in nothing but a skimpy towel, she must swallow her pride and turn to Jesse for help. She doesn’t expect the explosive chemistry between them and can’t help but wonder if Jesse’s as demanding in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom.
A peek between the pages:
His handsome face smirked before he averted his eyes and turned his head, but she could still see the profile of his face. His police uniform stretched across his chest. Wonder if that chest is chiseled underneath all those clothes.
Her ears burned hotter than chili sauce, spreading to her neck and chest. No point in putting on a mask this time, because there was no escaping this. Her fingers found the ends of the towel to cover her naked body, but her legs froze on the spot. “I got locked out of my house.”
“You got locked out of your house…naked?” A grin spread across his face, revealing the dimple on the bottom lip. She wanted to bite it but didn’t know if it was to hurt him or because of the temperature between her legs.
Scowling at his sarcasm, her fingers gripped the bricks of her house and she pulled herself up. “Yes. Why are you even here? Didn’t you have enough of me this morning?
