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.

Ive read all the Luck...

I've read all the Lucky books and I have to say I was very disappointed in this one. If I hadn't read the previous book, I would have been extremely lost as to who was who. Some of the characters have become so lame in the storyline that I'm not even sure why they are there. The characters did more development. It's become the same old same old. There's a murder, Lucky swoops in to save the day, Teddy is still mooning over her, the French chef is madly in love with her, her mother drives her nuts, and Lucky gets hurt in solving the murder. I think maybe this series has run its course.
