that someday she would have a family of her own, but meeting Jonathan
Sawyer changes all of that. He teaches Lorna that age is just a

wedding be enough to show her that it’s never too late to find
happily ever after?
If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do
during that day?
Um, Tag Harrison and you know, just hang out in bed!
Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
They are never based on real people. The only time I've come close to them being anyone familiar, was in Worth the Wait. Piper is the most like me, then any character that I've written. Her best friend, Sunny Francis (who is the Heroine for book 2- Line of Fire, coming in 2019) reminds me of my best friend since second grade. But, I should say that there was a good deal of embellishing with both of the characters and only small bits of them were based on real life.
Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
Oh my goodness, they totally hijack my stories! They never behave themselves either, which is a lot of fun! My family thinks that I'm bonkers, especially when I stop typing and shout something like, “I can't believe she's pregnant!” I then have to explain that I”m talking about one of my characters. My husband usually asks me, “As the author, shouldn't you have known that?”
Have you written any other books that are not published?
Yes, as stated above, I have a whole series called The Last First Kiss Series, that is menage. I am hoping to have it picked up and published in 2019.
If your book had a candle, what scent would it be?
Pine needles and old spice. That is what I think Tag would smell like. He runs an outdoor adventure company and spends a good deal of time outside.
How long have you been writing?
Not too long. I think that I wrote Love Times Infinity, Relinquished book 1 in 2016, and it was just published this year. I wrote it and Love's Patient Journey, book 2, for fun. I didn't plan on publishing them, but I'm glad that I did.
Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?
Some I know before I start writing my story and others make their appearance while I'm knee deep into the book.
What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book?
If I'm writing a new area, I try to visit that area. Harvest Ridge book 2, Line of Fire, is about a firefighter. I did a lot of research in that area and forest fires in Colorado. I try to know what I'm talking about, but sometimes I make mistakes.
Do you see writing as a career?
Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
Usually, I write in silence. I tried to write with music on but found myself singing the song lyrics and not being able to concentrate on typing. Once, I even typed some of the lyrics into the book.
L. Ramsey was born and raised in Maryland. As a child she struggled
in school, having to attend speech and reading therapy. Her teacher
told her that she would never be a very good reader; that English was
just not her thing. She continued to struggle until eleventh grade,
when she signed up for a Creative Writing class. Her high school
teacher saw her potential and submitted a short story, that K. L. had
written for class, to a local literary publication. The story was not
only published but won an award for best short story. Knowing that
someday she wanted to become a writer, K. L. received her BA in
English from Salisbury State University.
L. Ramsey currently resides in West Virginia (Go Mountaineers!). She
lives with hunky scientist, two now not so little people, and six fur
babies. In her spare time, she likes to read romance novels, attend
WVU football games and drink wine with girlfriends.
