What surprised you the most while writing this book?
How easy it flowed. I worried that I would struggle getting the plot out, but it went really well.
Why did you pick the setting you used for your book?
I’m from North Carolina and the state has several minor league teams. Pair that with my love for “Bull Durham,” well…I decided why not?
What is your favorite scene/moment in your book?
This is too hard to choose. Haha. I like that Chase and Emma are willing to work through things, even if they’re difficult.
Tropes get a bad name, but they’re often the biggest draw for readers. What tropes do you love to write and read?
I love a lot of them. Haha. Recently I’ve been doing more enemies to lovers, stepbrother, and age gap.
What are your favorite genres/sub-genres to write in? Are there any you love to read but cannot write in?
I love sports romance. That’s one reason I write it! I’ve been digging reverse harem and bully, but I’m not sure I could ever write it.
Which do you love to write best: dialogue, setting, action, love scenes, or other?
Dialogue and love scenes. I’ve been told my dialogue is snappy and that my best writing is when I write a love scene.
Which do you hate to write: dialogue, setting, action, love scenes, or other?
Setting. I struggle so hard with that. I’m working on it though.
Coached in Love
Hot men, baseball, and…love? Emma Carlisle never expected to find love in her workplace, but she did. But she sure did try and avoid it and him. Chase Anderson has a chip on his shoulder and a need to prove he’s still the best since the injury that took him off the pitcher’s mound. They both fight the attraction between them, neither wanting to give in to the inevitable. Will they allow themselves to drop the pretense? Coached in Love is the prequel to A.M. Williams newest series, The Boys of Summer. It’s a short introduction to the Somerville Spartans. If you like men in tight baseball pants, sizzling chemistry, and a happily ever after, this is the book for you.
An Excerpt from Coached in Love
Derek swallowed noticeably, looking from his hand to Callie and back again. “What the fuck?”⠀
“You got it in one,” she sarcastically said.⠀
Silence stretched between them. Callie shifted her weight and realized she needed to get going. She had to pee, wanted a shower, and wanted to crawl back into bed.⠀
Derek opened his mouth to say something, but she didn’t care to hear his thoughts. She wanted to be alone to figure out her own. She slipped her shoes on and started toward the door, snagging her clutch from the bench as she went by.⠀
“Callie! Where are you going?”⠀
She didn’t bother responding, instead choosing to get out of there as quickly as possible.⠀
This absolutely couldn’t be happening. She did not just become a statistic and have a quickie wedding in Vegas. She refused to believe it, so she would instead ignore it.⠀
A.M. Williams is just a simple girl from the south that found herself living abroad. When she’s not annoying her cat or reading, she’s spending time with her husband and traveling as much as possible. She has a serious case of wanderlust and wants to go as many places as possible while she can. She loves Cheerwine, sweet tea, and North Carolina (eastern style) BBQ as well as those crystal clear waters on the North Carolina coast.
