How are you this evening?
Read More From Janet Dailey
Janet Dailey: I am doing great, thank you! We have all been waiting! What made you return to your beloved characters? Janet Dailey: Obviously I have been asked for years to write another Calder, but I never felt there was another story until now. It first began with my publisher asking me if I would consider doing another Calder book, and I said I would think about it.
Within a week I got a letter from a reader, and she asked the same question but added, "You know you have never told Pat's story. Tell us how you got your first book published. Janet Dailey: I am the exception that proves the rule. My first book was accepted by the first publisher I submitted it to, but I was just like the hundred million people out there who wanted to write.
I used to talk about it endlessly. My dear husband must have heard me say times that I could write a book. But on the st time, he turned to me and said, "Shut up and write the book! Cindy from Albany, NY: What inspired the interesting plot of your new book? Janet Dailey: The Calder series itself. What life would you have as a woman in such a male-dominated society? So to a great extent, knowing the personality of Cat and that streak of independence that would have to come out, the story practically wrote itself.
Janet Dailey: The pride of Cat Calder. She had an enormous amount of pride. Pride can be a good thing and it can be a bad thing, too. All you have to do is say, "Happy Birthday" to my Mom. She get's teary-eyed if she just sees one of your books on the shelf! What a compliment for you! She's had a hard life but was able to escape her worries through your books! Thank you from all of her five children who are now grown and still worrying her! Janet Dailey: A big Happy Birthday to her! Where did you grow up and how big was your family? Did your family resemble the Calder pack?
Love your books! Janet Dailey: I was born and raised in a little town called Early, Iowa, and it was a town of people. I was related to half of them. I have three older sisters. My father passed away when I was 5 years old, and my mother remarried when I was 13 and I acquired four brothers, so I do have a big immediate family and a huge extended family. Sandra from Clarksdale: Who is your favorite Calder character and why?
Does one resemble you the most? Janet Dailey: I think I would have to say that Chase Calder is my favorite male character, because he was the first of the Calders whom I met. Curious that I said I "met" him. It shows you how real the characters become for me. Janet Dailey: It would have to be a story about Seth Calder. I hadn't considered that, no.

I have always been a huge admirer of Edna Ferber. L'Amour is the reason I love western books. Berry from Williamsburg, VA: What first made you interested in writing western romances?
Will you always set your books out west or would you consider a modern-city romance? Janet Dailey: Actually, I do write modern-city romances. Micky from Philadelphia, PA: Is your own love life as passionate and satisfying as that of your heroines? Janet Dailey: Let me answer that by giving you my husband's standard answer -- he does all the research for my books, and he has asked me to slow down! Colleen from Seattle, WA: How many books have you written? How do you keep up your incredible speed?
Janet Dailey: I think it is 98 published novels. But first I have to say, if you had asked me if I thought I would write that many books I would have said you are crazy, but God blessed me with multitudes of story ideas.
Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Calder Pride
I never wonder about what my next story will be. I wonder about which one of the ideas I have will be the new book. I always have three or four or more story ideas buzzing in my mind. When I read your books it's hard to put them down until their finished. I'm ready for a trip to the bookstore. How many children do you have and are there any grandbabies? Janet Dailey: I have two stepchildren -- that I don't like to use the word "step" about -- and we have five grandchildren. It's a pleasure to talk to you.
I like your books a bunch. I mean it! Nowadays, when your name comes to my mind, it's impossible not to think also about Nora Roberts. Tell us: How did you overcome your problems with her? What has happened since then? How are things going on in your life since this problem appeared? And also, how do you feel about all this? What do you think about Nora? Thank you. Really, thank you.

As Chase Calder would say, "Maybe it is not as important that you get bucked off the horse but that you get back on! Janet Dailey: Asking me which is my favorite book is like asking a mother which is her favorite child. The minute I try to say it is the first book, because it started it all, then all the other books rear their heads and say, "What about me? Marco Aurelio from Fortaleza, Brazil: Hello there again, dear Janet: Do you have plans of one day writing your biography? It would be interesting. Do you have an email address? Do you answer fan mail?
Do you have plans of visiting your Brazilian fans one day? Thank you! Janet Dailey: I never know where I may travel. Who knows, one day I may end up in Brazil and if you log onto my web page -- www. Generally I do answer fan mail if there are specific questions. I really don't have any plans to write a biography. While Cat struggles to come to grips with Logan's appearance, an enemy's long-smoldering thirst for revenge flares to life, threatening Logan, Cat, and their beloved son. Will Logan's training as a lawman be enough to save his family? And even if everyone survives, will Cat have the courage to chance her heart and love again?
The newest installment in Janet Dailey's much loved Calder family saga, Calder Pride possesses both complex characters and a compelling plot line--one infused with a suspense element that Dailey conveys as effortlessly as the essence of a Montana ranching community that will charm the reader throughout. Intelligent and strong, Cat is well balanced by Logan, who is her equal, whether they're riding horses, roping cattle, battling bad guys, or making love.
