Falling for You series by Danielle Lee Zwissler
The Boy Next Door
When Keri Richards comes home from college to mourn her father’s death, Payton, her fun-loving, next door neighbor is there, as usual, ready to share his tree fort. It isn’t until she is back in school again that she realizes that there may be more to their friendship. Who knows…it may even be love!
The Boy I Love
Just as Keri finally decides to take the “big step”, her mom calls for her, and everything is put off, and then she has to fly back to Ohio until Christmas break!
If only they could get a few minutes alone!
Payton is busy with work, and Keri gets a job, and can’t come home as much as she wants… What will happen when the fairytale is over?
Falling for him was easy, keeping him was a whole other problem.
Once again Danielle Lee Zwissler takes her readers to the wonderful world of love, drama, and passion, in the way only she can do it.
I cannot wait to see how the whole story wraps up in the upocoming third book.”
When Keri finally makes it home after a devastating discovery, she sees the much-loved tree fort in shambles. After talking with her mom, Alexis and Todd, Keri decides she’s going to need all the help she can get in figuring out a way to win back Payton’s love… But how will she do all that and go to school, graduate, and stay sane? And what will Payton’s family have to say about her change of heart?
Keri soon finds out that the promise of love can help you accomplish anything…
Danielle Lee Zwissler is from a small town in Ohio, and enjoys reading about cowboys, writing about cowboys and looking at them. (Do you see a theme here?) She loves Harry Potter, Sam Smith’s music, and Caramel Macchiato creamer in her coffee. She has two wonderful children, a sexy husband, two guinea pigs—Pudding Cup and Flower, a turtle named Lilly and a minivan filled with books and kid stuff. She loves to hear from people that actually read her books, and she will be forever grateful if you mention her books to anyone…

She can also be found signing books around the US at several different comic cons. All author visits will be posted on her homepage.
When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
In 2004 when I started writing IRIS with my husband.
How long does it take you to write a book?
It all depends really. Some of my novellas only took a day—18 hours for The Boy Next Door, and it’s one of my more popular books. 6 hours for “The Cowboy’s Bride” … 6 months for IRIS (Fantasy Novel) and 3 days for “Her Last Chance” …
What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
My schedule is nuts when I’m writing. I get into the zone, and don’t do much else. I usually brew a pot of coffee and sit down in my chair for hours on end. I just recently bought a treadmill that my husband built a desk for, and now I walk and type with my laptop, and sit and type on my desktop. The best of both worlds.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I don’t think I do anything too interesting. I like to listen to music while writing, but that’s normal for anyone.
How do your books get published?
Both Traditionally and Self…
Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Anywhere and everywhere. A lot of my ideas come from listening to music and looking through the pictures in magazines.
When did you write your first book and how old were you?
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Hang out with my kids, watch baseball, and read.
What does your family think of your writing?
My husband and kids are awesome about it. I don’t think anyone else in my family really cares all that much. I’ve had maybe three other (family members) read a book of mine.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
I guess the most surprising thing that I’ve learned is how therapeutic it can be to get your feelings out on paper. As you may have guessed, I have been more than one of my characters.
How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
57 books now. Not all of them are published, though. My favorite is The Long Ride Home.
Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?
Read. That’s about it. If you want to write, you need to read. All the rules are there, all the great ideas are out there ready to be plucked and placed, all you need to know how to do is form sentences and take time out of your day to write them down.
Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
Yeah I’d say a few times a week in email, and several times a day on my Facebook page. My Facebook page has been a miracle to me. Some of my fans will ask when the next book is out, others will tell me how much they’ve liked something, and a few have sent me snail mail.
Do you like to create books for adults?
Yes, I absolutely love my job.
What do you think makes a good story?
Love everlasting, believable characters, and reality.
As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
As a child, I wanted to be a lawyer, as a teen I wanted to be a band director, and now I’m a writer. I have a degree in Music Education and am still working toward my Masters in English. I’m nearly done.
