Interesting Facts About Kissing Fire Part 1
By A.M. Hargrove



Kissing Fire is a spinoff from the Edge Series and those books originated in Charleston, SC. While the Middleton name does exist and is synonymous with one of the founding families of that city, all the characters in the books, namely Avery Middleton and her family, are fictitious. 


All the landmarks and restaurants in the books from Charleston are real, except I changed most of their names, with the exception of Home Team BBQ. That was one I simply couldn’t compromise on.


Avery has a love for skiing and Vail, CO specifically. She gets that from yours truly. Snow skiing is one of my passions. I have to rein myself in when I write about it because I have a tendency to get very techie on the subject. 


In Kissing Fire, Avery and Preston ski out of the Vail in bounds ski area, by way of the Minturn Mile. That actually does exist and if you know where to find it, you can ski all the way into the small town of Minturn. It’s about four miles long though, so the name is a misnomer. There is a place there called the Minturn Saloon too.

About Author:

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life.  So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase.  Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodgeball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head.  Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window.   She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone and hit #4 on her speed dial.


Boss:  Hello


A.M.:  Boss, is that you?


Boss:  Why yes, A. M., who else would be answering my phone?


A.M.:  Er… right.  Well, I’m calling to let you know you can pick up my luxury Ford Focus at Starbucks near the interstate.


Boss:  Why ever would I want to do that?


A.M.:  Because I quit!


A.M. hit the end button and speed dialed her husband.


A.M.:  Hi hubs, can you pick me up at Starbucks?


Hubs:  Sure… Having some car trouble?


A.M.:  Not at all.  I don’t have a car to have trouble with because I just quit my job.


Hubs:  WHAT?!


A.M.:  It’s time for a new career and I am going to be a very famous novelist.


So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer! Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and the upcoming reEmergent) and Dark Waltz.
