With over sixty books to her name, Katherine Garbera always has awesome ideas for stories and I invited her to share more about the idea behind No Rest For the Wicked.
Katherine Garbera on the ‘why’ behind her bad boy story…
Sebastian had everything ripped from under him when his car crashed and his best friend died. Left grappling with a lot of questions as to why he’s still alive and Judd isn’t, he runs as fast as he can to ignore them. He’s living his life for two now, making sure that Judd didn’t die in vain. He sleeps with twice as many women, doubles up on danger and races through life because that is the only time he can forget for a few moments and truly feels alive.
Everyone deals with grief in different ways and I wanted to explore loss/death causes a change that we really can’t control. When I as in high school there was a horrible accident that left one student dead and the other severely injured. The injured boy/man sat next to me in World History and walked with a cane when he returned to school. He’d changed almost overnight from the fun loving guy to someone who was more somber. But he’d flirt with me sometimes and I saw a glimpse of the boy he’d been before. From that moment I think I wanted to write about a damaged man. I really love exploring that dichotomy.
The appeal of Bad Boys is that they are tempting. We are all told to be good and play by the rules and they don’t. They take what they want, they invite us along for the wild, crazy ride that life can be. And we go for it. In romance novels they appeal because they can and will be redeemed. They will be find a sort of redemption in through love and for me at least that damaged part of them can be healed.
