Take Five and Meet Author Stephanie Berget

Lucky us, we get to meet Stephanie Berget. 
Wait until you find out more about her character's jobs!

Welcome to An Indie Adventure, Stephanie.  Tell us, what inspired you to write your book Radio Rose?

Thanks, L.A. for hosting me.  I love small town romances with quirky characters and I had an off beat idea to write a romance about a Bronc Rider and a Physicist who’d run away from her problems and become a late night radio DJ with a show about aliens.

How do you use setting to further your story?

When I looked for a location, I came across Trinidad, Colorado, which just happens to be the Sex Change Capital of the World. Betcha didn’t know that. I didn’t. The possibilities suddenly became endless.

How do you construct your characters?

In Radio Rose, the eccentric characters introduced themselves one after the other and fought with each other to get their story on the page. I really just wrote down what they told me. Except for the hero, Adam. He’s a bit of a loner and very closed-mouthed.

How is your main character completely different than you?

Rose loves science and is very smart. She’s happy being alone or she thought she was until she’s pulled into the town’s problems. I don’t want to be in a crowd, but I love to have some people around.
Tell us something about yourself we might not expect!

I always wanted to be a figure skater when I was young, but the only time I tried ice-skating, I fell and gave myself a concussion. After that, I stuck to riding horses.

Radio Rose knows Martians aren’t real.

As a DJ for a late night talk show about aliens, Rose Wasnowski could never admit to being a non-believer. Talking to crazies all night isn’t the perfect job for most people, but she’s happy with her solitary life. Until a middle of the night car crash and a blow to the head has her mistaking a reclusive rodeo cowboy for a real life extra-terrestrial.

Adam Cameron, raised by his narcissistic grandfather for most of his childhood, made his escape from Tullyville, Colorado the day he turned eighteen. Forced to return ten years late for the reading of his grandfather’s will, he’s about to be pulled into a contest for a vast fortune and the future of a town he’d just as soon forget.

Relationships aren’t one of Rose’s strong points. Hell, she mistook the hot cowboy for an alien the first time they met, but Adam needs help and she’s the woman to help him—maybe.

In a town filled with new-found friends, Rose has to decide how far she’s willing to go to trust the loner.

Romance beneath a rodeo moon. That’s what Stephanie Berget had in mind when she began writing, to add a realistic view of rodeo and ranching to her Western Romance.

She was born loving horses, developing a lifelong love of rodeo when she married her Bronc Rider. They traveled to rodeos throughout the Northwest while she ran barrels and her cowboy rode bucking horses.

Stephanie and her husband have three adult children and several grandchildren. They live on a farm located along the Oregon/Idaho border, where they raise hay, horses and cattle, with the help of Cisco, the wonder horse, Dizzy Dottie, the Border Collie, and two Munchkin cats, Magic and Martin.
