Author Take Over: K.E. Osborn, author of the Trust Me? Trilogy

Hi Guys!! *waves*
It's Wednesday,and you all know what that means!!!
Author Take Over!!!! WOHO!! *throws confetti*
Please welcome the amazing K.E Osborn all the way from Australia!

    Back when I was in High School (which is equivalent to College) I discovered I had a love of writing. I enjoyed writing about all sorts of things, but I found I mostly loved anything romance. As time passed I decided to follow a different career path and gained my qualifications in graphic design. Whilst I love graphic design and all that comes with it, writing was always in the background bubbling away, just waiting to come to the surface.  
    It wasn’t until I had a vivid dream about a couple meeting through a three car pile up, that I felt like I wanted to start writing again. I sat myself down and started writing solidly until the Trust Me? Trilogy was on paper. About half way through writing the first book in the Trilogy my mother stumbled upon my work, and started reading it. It was then, after she told me honestly what she thought, that I realized I wanted to self publish. The first book took me about three months to completely get down on paper, and the other three books in the Trilogy took a little over a month each. Of course that was the first draft; it has taken many more hours of writing, rewriting and editing to make each book perfect for self publishing.
    Since writing the Trust Me? Trilogy I have written, or are in the process of writing three more books. I would love to just to sit every day and write my stories, but unfortunately editing, rewriting and promotion do take up a considerable amount of my day.  The best part about editing and rewriting is watching your first draft come to life, and then turning it into the best manuscript you can produce.
    I have had some amazing feedback and reviews, regarding my debut book Trust Me? The Trust Me Trilogy. One of the most wonderful things that can happen, is when you log into Facebook and see a comment from a fan that goes along the lines of “Fantastic Book” or “When does the next one come out, I can’t wait” etc. Comments such as these make you feel like you’ve really accomplished something great. Interaction with my fans is very important to me and I make myself available on as many social media websites as possible, so readers can always contact and talk with me.  I love interacting with my readers, and will always answer all written posts or messages. 
     Contemporary romance writing is very close to my heart and authors like EL James, Sylvia Day and Stephanie Meyer have been a big influence in my love of writing.

    I really hope you all enjoy my books Trust Me?, Love Me? All of Me? And Complete Me? from The Trust Me? Trilogy, and also my stand alone novel Just Friends?. 

Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. Having worked in the optical industry for some time, K E Osborn decided it was time to leave the optical world behind and start on something new. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she tried her hand at writing.

K E Osborn hid the fact that she was writing from her family, as she believed her first story was simply something she had to get on paper first and then judge if it was good enough for others to read. It wasn’t until her mother found a printed version of the manuscript that her secret came out. She was a writer, and she loved it. Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry, and get completely enveloped with the characters and their story lines. She feels at home when writing.
K E Osborn hopes you enjoyed her first stand alone novel - Just Friends? You can look forward to more books being released in 2014
