Character Spotlight


Karrie Mallory of the contemporary romance, Something Like Love, took a few minutes from her busy schedule to answer some interview questions! If you read Karrie’s answers and would like to know more about her, you can ask the author (Tracy Broemmer) or better yet, you could read the book, available on Amazon in trade paperback and as a Kindle download.

Q:        Are you married? If yes, is this your first marriage? Or are you looking for love?

A:        No, I’m not married. I am an ER nurse, and though I would like to be married one day, and to have a family, I haven’t had time to worry too much about my personal life. I have been involved with someone, but I’m pretty sure he’s not the one, and I don’t think we have much of a future at all. So, looking for love, I guess, but apparently, in all the wrong places.


Q:        Are you an only child? How many siblings do you have? Are you close?

A:        I have an older sister. Leigh and I were very close when we were kids, and though we still talk a lot, time and distance have taken their toll, I guess. Leigh is married; she has two kids. Hazel and Gino are my two favorite kids in the world, and I love Leigh and her husband, Brad. We just don’t get to see each other like we used to.


Q:        You said you’re a nurse. Are you a health nut? Do you work out? Eat clean? Are you athletic?

A:        I go in spurts with eating and working out. I try to make good decisions, but again, sometimes I am so busy, that I simply can’t do everything and yes, sadly, the first thing to get axed from my schedule is my own self-care. Yes, I’m athletic. Played high school sports, but I don’t play competitively now.


Q:        Favorite sport?

A:        Basketball, of course!


Q:        You had a busy week, and you’re looking forward to coming home from work, putting your feet up, and reading a much-anticipated new book or curling up on the couch to watch a favorite TV show, and your best friend forever calls and asks you to meet her for a drink. What do you do?

A:        My BFF is my sister. I’d drop everything and go with her for a drink. Every. Time.


Q:        If you could go back in time to one day and CHANGE something, what day would it be and what would you change?

A:        I would go back to the day of my brother-in-law’s accident. And I would do my best to keep him from getting on that bike and driving away and hopefully bring him home safe and sound to my sister’s family.
