BEVERLY BATEMAN (Cont.)
Tell us about the scariest thing that ever happened
I was held up at gunpoint in New Orleans, just off
Bourbon Street. MFRW:
How many books have you written, how many have
I‟ve written ten books. Nine have been published.
The ninth will be released in October. BB:
If I were a first-time reader of your books, which
one would you recommend I start with and why?
I‟d suggest Hunted if you like contemporary roman-
tic suspense westerns. It‟s the first book in my
Hawkins ranch series, takes place in Victoria, BC
and Duster. Montana and I love the scene where
the hero kidnaps the heroine.
What book for
you has been the
easiest to write?
The hardest? The
The easiest was
Missing. The hard-
est is my latest,
The Fourth Victim,
book one in my
new series The
Foundation, and the most fun was Death Awaits
about a dog walker with funky characters.
What is the hardest part of writing/the easiest for
The hardest part is developing my characters, so my
readers will either love them or hate them. The easi-
est part is plotting. Ideas usually come easy.
