My guest is historical author Victoria Roberts. She’s a lover of all things Scot. A bonny lassie after me own heart!
I was able to pull her head out of the highlands, and the cloud of midges, long enough to answer a few questions, and apply soothing balm for the midge bites and some fine coffee to wash away the ones she might have inadvertently breathed in…
Victoria, welcome to Over Coffee. That’s quite a story you wrote and I have to say, I love your two main characters!
Thank you for having me. It’s great to be here.
- Did you try other genres before you hit with this one?
No. It’s funny you ask that because over a year ago I sat down with one of my male friends and told him I write Scottish historical romances. Contrary to what one might think, he was actually pretty interested and asked me the same question. I was curious why he asked me that and this was his response.
"I admire you for knowing what you want and going after it. You didn't play around with writing another genre in the hopes someone would notice you." I had never really thought of it that way, but I guess that would be true.
- Why this genre instead of another?
As soon as I picked up my first Scottish historical, I recognized this is where my path led. In reality, that’s when Temptation in a Kilt was born. But don’t get me wrong. I love reading other genres such as paranormal, regency, urban-fantasy, etc. It just so happens to be that Scottish historical romance is where my heart lies. And as long as I still have stories to be told, this is the genre where I’ll be—well, as long as the readers keep enjoying my wee Scottish tales.
- What excites you about this genre?
How much time do we have? *checking watch*
It all starts with Scotland. The bonny glens, lochs, heather, castles, history, clans, Highlanders, men in kilts—yep, I could go on and on and on. My family will tell you the same. With a country so rich in history, Scotland is the perfect backdrop for a historical romance. Throw in an alpha-Highland laird and a feisty lass and the possibilities are endless.
Now whether Scotland’s political past adds to the drama of writing this genre or the never-ending battles between the clans, there is definitely something for everyone. Don’t you agree?
Vickie, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer my questions. I wish you the best with this series!
