Interview with Kamy Chetty

Today, the talented Kamy Chetty is here with us to talk about her release. And there's a giveaway!


Kamy, what inspired you to write Falling into Paradise?

The characters. I started with the what if question/ What if there was this drop dead gorgeous playboy who was the sheriff of this small town, in walks this city slicker who is cute but has all these rules you have to follow. She prim and proper and the total opposite of him who is a total charmer, wouldn’t you want to lock them in a room, turn on the heat and see what happens?

Describe Falling into Paradise in 140 characters or less.

Two people who are afraid to love or trust for different reasons, are thrown together by fate and their mutual attraction for each other. Sophie must rely on Damon to help clear her of charges brought against her by the family of the woman he once loved. As their attraction grows so does the danger and when Paige, Sophie’s sister is rescued from the foster system and placed in her care, things become more than complicated as Damon faces the things he’s missed and ached for. But is that life a dream and is the playboy willing to risk his heart once again.

What actor and actress would play Damon and Sophie in a movie?

That’s easy- Damon would be played by Ian Somerhalder of course because that’s the Hottie I looked at when I was writing him and Sophie will be played by Charlize Theron

What advice would you give to someone experiencing writer’s block?

It’s really hard but it helps to have a routine, like music, I have the same playlist I play when I am writing the book. I light scented candles and prepare my office and my workspace, then I play my special playlist and then I am off.

If it’s bad, try walking or some other exercise. And if it’s really bad and nothing you do helps then don’t waste that time- use that time to edit another piece of work.

What's next for you?

I have another book coming out in June, it’s not tied to this- it’s a medical set in the US. The story is Nick and Skylar. He is an ex-marine- yes I have a thing for men in uniform. But I already have calls for Wolfe’s story so that needs to be written and I have a few ideas for that book so watch this space.

I have a thing for men in uniform, too! Your book sounds intriguing. Good luck! Kamy has kindly offered to giveaway a copy of Falling into Paradise to one lucky commenter. Be in it to win it, folks!


Kamy Chetty was born in South Africa. She is now settled in New Zealand with her family. She began her career as a nurse but she is now a published author. Her novel FALLING INTO PARADISE (genre: sexy romantic suspense) was recently released by RED SAGE.




  1. Hi Kamy, *sigh* you had me at Marine! I cant remember if I've read anywhere but will there be more books based in Paradise? I had to google Ian but I realised who he was when i did so, Hellllooo Good lookin lol. I kind of imagined Damon as Eddie Cibrian's character in the movie he made when he met LeAnn Rymes. Congratulations on the Release and looking forward to your next book :)

    1. Hi Tash- there is something about take charge men in uniforms- aren't there. Must admit they are my weakness and if I can find ways to put my men in them, I will. Yes there will be more Paradise books- I am plotting Wolfe's book now and he has a lot in store for him. Watch out for Wolfe and Talia's story and off course with Damon off on his honeymoon- guess who is playing sheriff of Paradise Falls:-)

    2. Oh neat! That's fab news about your future book plans... I'm loving the sound of it. And yes *sigh* man in uniform *double sigh*

  2. Hi Carmen, Hi Kamy,

    I think the two of you have a lot in common, as you both write sexy romantic suspense, but Carmen's debut novel A VENGEFUL AFFAIR was set in Europe, while Kamy's FALLING INTO PARADISE was et in the USA.

    I'm waiting with bated breath to read the follow up books which both of you will bring out. They should make interesting reading.

    1. Hey Maria! Nice point ;)

      Well, you won't have to wait much longer, right? Ha! Thanks :)

    2. Hi Maria thanks for dropping by. I already have Carmen's book on my TBR pile and will be reading it after I finish the one I'm reading now. I always love discovering new authors and off course those that invite me over are a plus especially when they kinda have part of my name. My parents still call me Kamen- spelt differently but pronounced the same:-)

  3. Great interview, Carmen and Kamy! I love the opposites attract theme. Congrats Kamy, wish you heaps of sales :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Ruchita! I love that trope too!!!

    2. Thanks Ruchita and so good of you to come by. My hubby and I are opposites and it shows that it totally works. I'm way bossier than him- if that's even a word:-) LOL

  4. Hi Kamy, Hello Carmen!

    Thanks for this interview. Great interview! And I'm also waiting for follow up books from you two!

  5. AAAAAAAAAAAnd we have a WINNER!!!

    The lovely Ruchita has won and her copy of FALLING INTO PARADISE has been sent. Now, if you read this after the giveaway, don't worry -- you can still go to Amazon and B&N and get a copy. So worth it :)

  6. Hi Carmen, Hi Kamy,
    Thanks for the win. Am on my toes to read it :)

  7. Congrats Ruchita - and thanks to Carmen and Kamy for this post and giveaway!
