Annie's Book Stop of Worcester

The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside



Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester is very happy to shine our Friday spotlight on contemporary romance and romantic suspense author Katee Robert.


Hello, Katee. Can you please tell us briefly a little about yourself and your writing? How would you like us to introduce you?


I’ve been writing for ten years, and my happy place is in erotic romance. I love retellings, and queerness tends to be the default in my books.



Where can people find your work? (Besides Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester–though they should totally check here first!)


I’m in most major retails and indie bookshops. I also sell special editions in my Etsy shop.



How can we follow your work and share your awesomeness?


I’m most active on TikTok (@authorkateerobert) and Instagram (@katee_robert)! And, as always, my newsletter is the best way to make sure you don’t miss any updates!



For readers unfamiliar with your work, how would you describe what you write?  What can readers expect from Cruel Seduction?


I joke that my books are the Fast and Furious version of dark, erotic romance. You’re in for a hell of a ride, and we’re going to have a blast while we’re doing it. Just don’t ask too many questions about the physics LOL. My next big release is Cruel Seduction, coming in August, which really embodies that. It’s an open polycule knot with hate sex, marriage of convenience, and a whole boatload of scheming!






What is your favorite part of being a writer?  Of the whole writing and publishing process?  What do you think has been your greatest lesson in the journey thus far?


My greatest lesson so far has been the importance of chasing joy. If I’m having a blast writing the story and exploring the characters, then there’s a significant chance that my reads will as well.


When it comes to the process itself, I love editing. It feels like taking a raw block of clay and carving out something that’s actually recognizable.



Writers very often have furry or feathered or otherwise non-human companions to “help” them through their work.  Do you? What do you have? How do they “help” (or, “not-help”) with your writing?


I have one cat (Foggy) and two Great Danes (Duke and Duchess). Duke likes to help my hand right off the keyboard and onto his head. He’s pushy and I love him for it!



What is the greatest lesson you’ve learned, thus far, in your writing career?


It’s really challenging to balance art with business, but the most important thing I’ve learned is that no one will advocate for me more than I will. Everyone’s path is their own, and that’s reflected in their goals, but for me, it’s been vital to find that spot where creativity and business meet—to write the book I love in the most marketable way possible.



Thanks so much for taking the time to answer the questions for us, Katee.
