Guest Takeover: Kathy O’Rourke

Kathy O’Rourke is an independent writer. I had the pleasure of reading chapters of Knowing Beth as Kathy posted them in a private FB group. If you love alpha male MC stories with sweet, emotionally strong submissives, check, out Knowing Beth

cover  eBook (Final)Knowing Beth by Kathy O’Rourke

Book One in the Men of Nirvana Flats Series.

I was always a closeted writer who wrote stories and poems but would never show them to anybody.  After a bout with cancer I made a bucket list. What can I say, I saw the movie and it inspired me. At the top of my list right under winning the lottery was write a novel. Since winning the lottery was a crapshoot, I moved on to writing my novel. People ask me where I got my idea for Knowing Beth, the answer is crazy simple… the character Beth came to me in a dream and gave me her story and then sat on my shoulder as I wrote the book.   Ask any writer and they will tell you that their characters become real to them. Mine did and I love them. As I was writing Knowing Beth it became apparent that this needed to be a series because all of the characters want me to tell their stories too.  I titled the series “The Men of Nirvana Flats” after their motorcycle club’s name which is  the Nirvana Flats Motorcycle Club (NFMC). Each book will have a HEA for one of the men but all the characters will be seen through the series.


Beth: A young submissive in trouble.

Parker: A Dom with a sad secret.

Was it just an accident that they met? Or something else?

Can Parker and his crew help Beth handle her past demons? Can Beth help Parker deal with his painful past?


Amazon Reader Reviews:
