Poni, puke, ohana. Purple, book, and family.
Emma Lang, aka Beth Williamson, might sing, "These are a few of my favorite things." From her bio,
Beth has always been a dreamer, never able to escape her imagination. It led her to the craft of writing romance novels. She’s passionate about purple, books, and her family. She has a weakness for shoes and purses, as well as bookstores. Her path in life has taken several right turns, but she’s been with the man of her dreams for more than 20 years.

Kim: Who influences your writing? Who/what helped you along the road to publishing?
Emma: Amazing writers influence my writing and every day life inspires me. I get such satisfaction in reading a book that stays with me long after I finish it. First and foremost I am a reader, then a writer. :)
What helped me along the road to publishing was my friends - there is nothing more inspiring than others who believe in you. I wouldn't be where I am without those wonderful woman.

Kim: Purple - what draws you to it? What's your favorite purple thing? Favorite shoes? Most unusual purse?
Emma: Oooh, purple. It's the color of passion - it's what drives me to write. My favorite purple thing? I have a lot of purple things, from shoes to pants, to purses, luggage and more. LOL. My favorite purple shoes are a pair of light purple New Balance sneakers - super comfy! Most unusual purse is a circular metal vintage cowgirl purse. Super fun!! :)

Kim: Tell us about your latest novel! What inspires your love for cowboys?
Emma: Cowboys!! I have always loved cowboys, what I consider to be modern day knights, with an unbreakable code of honor. Since I was a young girl watching Big Valley and Clint Eastwood movies, I've been in love with the idea of cowboys.
My latest book is CIRCLE EIGHT: BRODY. Brody Armstrong first appeared in the Circle Eight: Matthew as the investigator for the crimes committed against the Graham family. Black hair, ice blue eyes and an attitude to match, Brody was a mysterious force who needed to return for his own story, The Circle Eight: Brody. He wears a black hat and is hard as the land he protects. Fortunately for him, Olivia Graham is just as tough and stubborn as Brody. Clash of the Titans, y'all. :)
BRODY is a rough, sexy, intense and violent story. Quite different from MATTHEW in that it’s a road romance and there is plenty of guns and blood. The story almost told itself – the touch Texas Ranger and the outspoken Olivia Graham. It is super hot in terms of the heat level but that’s how the characters wanted it. ;)
Kim: What's next for Emma Lang/Beth Williamson?
Emma: Next up is the ebook rerelease of THE PERFECT SCORE on November 6th, three erotic contemporary novellas set in Texas at a bowling tournament. Two are m/f, one is f/f - a different flavor for everyone. Hot, sexy and fun.
In February, CIRCLE EIGHT: CALEB is on the horizon. Book three in this series brings us the missing Graham sibling, Benjy. Caleb and Aurora are like gasoline and fire - burning hot and bright.:)
