An interview with Deborah Coonts

Why did you decide to write humor?

I'm not sure I decided to add snark to the Lucky books, specifically to Lucky's own voice, it just happened that way. When I was a kid, my mouth always got me into trouble. Finally, I've found a way to harness the sarcasm for the Forces of Good - or at least in a way not to anger my grandmother. And when Lucky started talking to me, she had a strong dose of sass in her.

The Lucky O'Toole Vegas Adventure series is hard to categorize. Is that by design?

When I set out to write Wanna Get Lucky?, I knew I wanted to write a romp through Las Vegas. I had the characters and the setting but no real understanding of narrative drive. So, I threw a young woman out of a tour helicopter into the middle of the Pirate Show and let the story unfold. A bit of murder to keep the plot moving, some wisecracking and Vegas mischief to make you laugh, and some romance to keep it interesting. A bit of a mash up, but it works.

Praise for Lucky Bastard

"If you're entertained by sex, innuendo and a few fantasies you'd like to see played out - and who isn't? - you ought to have Lucky and her extended Vegas family (So Damn Lucky, 2012, etc.) on speed dial." (Kirkus Reviews starred review)

"This fast, funny, frantic Vegas-set series offers great laughs as well as compelling mystery and intriguing continuing characters. You'll want to spend more time with Lucky, the daughter of a former madam and a mobster." (RT Book Reviews)

"...the talented Coonts takes the reader on another wild ride through Sin City." (Booklist)

"Lucky’s sass and snark make for fun reading...." (Publishers Weekly)
