Dancing With His Heart
Author: Katherine Warwick
Publish Date: 1st edition 2006
Publisher: Grove Creek Publishing

Playboy and philanthropist, Alex offers first class sponsorship to Lauren and her dance partner. Given their tumultous past, Lauren is suspicious. Without resources, the single mother of a handicapped child is forced to take Alex's offer. His plan is to prove that he's changed, and win her heart. But trust is not easily won even with the sizzling sparks the two of them ignite on and off the dance floor, and they both face more trouble when a dark figure from their past shows up with devious intentions for them both. 

Welcome Katherine to Page Flipperz.

(( hands Kath a can of Rockstar and a cupcake ))

Kat : Katherine what inspired you to write Dancing with his heart ?
Katherine : DWHH is part of a ballroom dance series I wrote. Also, it was my first book dealing with autism. ( HEAVENLY being my second ) I wanted to explore the difficulties of being a single mother trying to make it in the world with a handicapped child.

Kat : Its about Ballroom dancing , do you dance yourself, and why about Ballroom dancing ?
Katherine : I DO dance and I LOVE to dance. I thought the ballroom dance world was so fascinating - it's in its own world - that it would be great to explore, hence the series. Plus, ballroom is so HOT. The intimacy adds wonderfully to a romance storyline.

**Kat - (( Oh my yes I have to agree Katherine, Id love to dance, I did it when I was younger with my nan, for years, and its seems so romantic. ))

Kat : When did you write it , how long did it take?
Katherine : I wrote it when I first started writing ( about 8 years ago ) and it takes me about 3-4 months to write a book.

Kat : Did you relvolve your characters around anyone in particular in the book ?
Katherine : The only similarities to real people in the book are the autistic child ( again, taken from my own experience having a child with autism ) and the emotional reactions of Lauren to her child's handicap.

Kat : You have just released DWHH  in e format when or will it be released in print?
Katherine : DWHH is available in both paperback and ebook.

Kat : When writing do you enjoy listening to music -  and if so does it have to suit the book your writing..?
Katherine : Yes, I listen to music when I write and DWHH has a hot soundtrack with lots of tense music that encouraged the moments between Alex and Lauren to heat up..
