Who is Darby Kane? HelenKay! That’s who!

(This FAQ brought to you by TeamHelenKay)

HelenKay Dimon books are romances, and just as mysteries end with solving the Whodunnit, romances guarantee a Happily Ever After. HelenKay writes in three subgenres within the Romance HEA: Romantic Suspense, Erotic Romance, and Contemporary Romance, and every HelenKay Dimon book has an HEA.

However…

Pretty Little Wife is straight suspense. It’s a thriller and HelenKay is thrilled about it. Here is the set-up:

Her husband is missing, which would be fine with her except she put his body RIGHT THERE and now it’s gone.

But it’s not a romance, and in order not to confuse the promise of an HEA, HelenKay and her incredible editor decided to bring out Pretty Little Wife under a pseudonym.

Enter DARBY KANE. All the great plotting, rich characterization, and fast pacing readers expect from a HelenKay novel — but in a thriller.

Where do your ideas come from?

Everywhere. Honestly, coming up with the ideas is not the problem. Putting my butt in the chair and writing the book – yeah, that’s the tough part.

Why did you stop being a divorce lawyer and start writing full time?

I’m actually still a lawyer…unless you know something I don’t. It’s true I’m not practicing law right now but that’s mostly due to a relocation from Maryland (where I passed the bar exam) to California (where I would have to take another bar exam to be licensed). The idea of going through another bar exam makes me kind of ill, so I’m taking full advantage of having a book contract and staying out of a courtroom. Feel free to buy my books so that I can keep that streak going.
