If  Elmore Leonard wrote romance novels, while binge-watching Dynasty, the result would be books by Clara Grace Walker

A born lover of soap operas, mystery and romance, bestselling author Clara Grace Walker is on a mission to bring glitz, glamour and continuing storylines to the world of romantic suspense. If you’ve arrived here, you’re probably longing for a Dynasty reboot also. It’s okay. Your secrets are safe with Clara. Unless you’re a millionaire playboy with a reluctant love interest and a super sinister nemesis, you probably won’t end up in the pages of her books.

Her debut series, Desire Never Dies, is set in sunny Florida, where danger lurks around every passion-filled corner. It’s a journey filled with sensuality, intrigue and strong characters, only some of whom possess a moral compass. Being the tender-hearted type, however, you can be sure Clara will always give you a happily-ever-after in the end. From the opening pages of Gratification, to the tabloid rumors and seedy murder mystery of Gossip, to the scorching romance and touching finale of Redemption, her stories read like a prime-time soap opera, rich with color and unbelievable scandal.

Her unique blend of genre-blended fiction makes her a fresh voice in romantic suspense, and has resulted in multiple appearances on the bestseller’s list. She loves all her readers, wherever they are, and is always happy to hear from them.

Fond of witty conversation, Clara loved dishing the fictional dirt as a regular commentator on the Revolution Diaries podcast, as well as the Flash Diaries podcast, where she talked about past, present and hoped-for romantic entanglements between the shows characters.

Clara started writing early and knew her true calling as an author by age 9. The second-born of five daughters, she made her world debut in an army hospital somewhere in Texas. Raised in Michigan, she was both a rebel and a lady, as at home playing dress-up as she was climbing trees. And always with her nose in a book. Convinced reading kept her daughter out of trouble, Clara’s mother encouraged her reading. Mostly her mother was right about that, but oh, the stories Clara was busy imagining. You see, Clara’s mother never bothered to check on what, exactly, her daughter was reading. And Clara, well, she still giggles about that.

Like her characters, Clara has experienced a good deal of life. She knows a motor yacht from a row boat, a courtroom from the court of public opinion, and while she likes to keep her gossip to the fictional world she writes about, she’s heard plenty of it in the real one.

Currently, Clara is working on a new four-book series, Sex and Secrets, and has just completed Book 1, Exploits. Complicated plots, a dead body or two, a few steamy love scenes and, of course, a soul-inspiring romance, are all in the mix. Expect Exploits, the first book in the series, in 2015.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are you currently working on?

Currently, I’m working on Exploits…the first in a new 4-book series called Sex and Secrets. In each of these novels the hero and/or heroine will be hiding a secret that complicates their romance and puts their lives in danger. As with the Desire Never Dies trilogy, each book with feature a different hero and heroine, with a continuing storyline. I’m really excited about this new series…and Exploits is already proving to be full-on excitement! :)

How do you get inspired to write?

There’s no telling where all these various plot ideas come from, really. Usually I just allow my self to relax and transcribe the ideas as they float into my brain. I find lounging poolside particularly good for this exercise.

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

My most recent book, Redemption, is the final installment of the Desire Never Dies trilogy…so I already had the sub-plot and the hero & heroine. Beyond that, I knew that Mindy was starting off the book broken and in need of healing…and I also knew that I wanted my characters trapped in a sinister place. Taking those two elements together really helped solidify the plot. Nothing quite like the combination of danger and romance! :)
