Interviews with authors

Daryl Devore writing as Victoria Adams author of Love in the Key of C.

Please tell us about yourself.
Two writers in one. Daryl Devoré writes hot romances with sexy heroes and strong heroines. Victoria Adams is Daryl Devoré’s alter ego when she’s inspired to write sweet romances with little to no heat.
Daryl (@daryldevore) lives in an old farmhouse in Ontario, Canada, with her husband, a large salt water aquarium full of fish, a black cat named Licorice and some house ghosts. Her daughter is grown and has flown the nest. Daryl loves to take long walks on her quiet country road or snowshoe across the back acres, and in the summer, kayak along the St. Lawrence River. She has touched a moon rock, a mammoth, and a meteorite. She’s been deep in the ocean in a submarine, flown high over Niagara Falls in a helicopter, and used the ladies room in a royal palace. Life’s an adventure and Daryl’s having fun living it.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Fish and chips. I could have mentioned meals in more upscale restaurants, but I’m guessing I’ve eaten more Fish and Chips than anything else. I have used the setting of a Fish and Chips restaurant in two books. It’s a relaxed atmosphere with comfort food.
Describe the perfect vacation.
I can do that in two words – the beach. I am at peace at the beach. I love to walk along the sand lost in my thoughts, splash in the water and just inhale the freshness of the salt air.
What are your hobbies?
I adore yoga and attend several classes a week. My favourites are Yin Yoga and Wall Yoga. What is Wall Yoga? Picture me hanging upside down – like a bat. Awww. So good.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I am a British Murder Mystery fan. I have complete collections Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Dorothy L. Sayers and Ellis Peters. I love nothing more than to curl up on a cold winter’s day, next to our woodstove with a hot chocolate – with marshmallow of course – and a fantastic murder mystery.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
I have two pen names, who write very different heat levels, so it depends on who I am as I am researching. As Daryl Devore, hot romance writer, the websites can get rather explicit as I look for new ideas or plot twists. For this latest book, I am writing as Victoria Adams and I researched theatres in New York City, musicians, and flutes.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Genre Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): G
Can a slice of pizza and a flute erase the ravages of life and allow Giselle and Ethan to fall in love by Christmas?
Collapsing in front the biggest department store in the city on one of the busiest days of the holiday season was not how Giselle imagined her day. Cold and hungry, she trudged through her daily existence wondering if she’d ever find happiness again.
Teenagers. Ethan loved working with them and turning their raw musical talent into something beautiful and rewarding, but that didn’t fill the black void in his soul.
Like fate, the songwriters’ muse nudged Giselle and Ethan together. But can Giselle overcome her fears and can Ethan get past the darkness that surrounds him, so they can find love?

Welcome Karen Cino author of A Different Side of Perfect (Book 2 – Seaside Boulevard Series), a new Contemporary Romance.

Why did you write this book?

I love writing series. This is the second book which deals with breast cancer, an interracial relationship and an obsessive relationship. I feel that these topics are important in real life and I felt they needed to be explored in more details.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read women’s fiction, contemporary romance and cozy mysteries. But don’t be surprised if you see me reading a Stephen King novel.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

I like Stephanie Plum. She is down to earth, calls a spade a spade and can’t choose between two men. I love her spunk and she always keeps me engaged in her adventures.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m working on two books. 5 Beach Road which explores the lives of three women down at the Jersey Shore and Book 3 in the Camp Mirage Series (cozy mystery).

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Sometime in January, I’ll be releasing the third book in the Seaside Boulevard Series.

Please tell us about your latest book.

Kristina Knight, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. I’d like to get to know you better. After we talk, I’ll ask for your bio and social media. Let’s jump in to a Quick and Fun answer session.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I write contemporary romance, filled with heart, heat, and (of course) happily ever after.
How do you come up with ideas?
Sometimes an idea comes from a snippet of a conversation I’ve overheard (I’m an expert eavesdropper!), sometimes from a TV show or movie, and sometimes characters just plot right into my brain without any warning at all.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
The creating part. I love developing an idea or character and then taking that idea or character and putting him (or her) into the absolute worst situation…and seeing what happens from there!
When did you write your first book?
The summer between 5th and 6th grade. My friends and I decided we’d write books that summer. I decided to write a girl power version of the Three Musketeers. They gave up about midway through the first afternoon, but I’ve been writing ever since.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather (lace itches!)
Black or red? Black (because, leather!)
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Ooh…satin, please!
Ocean or mountains? Ocean, all the way!
City life or country life? Country, although I’d like to be close enough to the city to drive in for special dinner or events.
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home – with someone special, of course!
Dogs or cats? Dogs! Snuggly puppies, lazy elder-dogs…they’re my favorites!
Tell us about Christmas in a Small Town
Running out on her wedding was the best decision ever!
A cheating fiancé sends Camden Harris fleeing to her grandparents’ home in Missouri. When her ex follows, determined to win her back, Camden makes a deal with neighbor Levi Walters: they’ll pretend to be in love and she’ll support his plan to buy her grandparents’ land.
The boy from her childhood has grown up into an impressive man. His charm, good looks and sweet gestures make it difficult for Camden to remember this is fake. And Levi’s kisses only confuse her more.

I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of Romance Lives Forever and today, it’s my turn to be in the hot seat. I’m ending a 20-day book tour with Crystal Reviews and it’s been a blast! At the end of this post, there will be a chance to help share my Thunderclap to announce the release of the book. Let’s jump in for a Quick and Fun answer session.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
Most of my books are science fiction, but I also write science fiction romance and contemporary romance. I have one non-fiction book, about how to write a series.
How do you come up with ideas?
I can’t keep from coming up with ideas. They float through the air and stick to me. I’ve learned to look at everything with the eye of a storyteller.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
I love world building. Creating a new place or culture and then fine tuning it is what makes me get up in the morning. Second most important is when I get a story across and readers react. That’s the reason I keep going!
When did you write your first book?
I was about 18. The original manuscript will never see the light of day, but it has launched an entire universe of stories.

FUN

Leather or lace? I’m more spandex. LOL
Black or red? Red.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton!
Ocean or mountains? Mountains with an ocean view
City life or country life? Country, close to the city
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home
Dogs or cats? Both!

 

Tell us about Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire

What if you were a soldier marooned on an undeveloped planet?
What if you had no food and few survival tools? What if you’d been genetically engineered? No matter how agonizing the wound, you’d survive. No matter how you died, you’d come back.
It could be worse. You could be here alone. But that’s the problem. You’re not.
On one hand, there’s a tribe of sentient panthers who protect you. Although you hate humans, the one who was dumped on this planet with you has become a trusted friend. The beautiful telepathic warrior you’ve loved since forever is at your side.
On the other hand, half a million people who depend on you are trapped inside stasis pods, waiting for you to save them. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could wake up a few at a time. But the traitors who abandoned you and your followers set the timers to release all half million.
At the same time.
You’re facing an ecological disaster and over five hundred thousand hungry, thirsty, homeless immortals.
Worse still, before you can build shelter, figure out how to grow food, or set up a government, you must take back command from a ruthless enemy you’ve fought for centuries.
Your brutal, merciless father.
Talk about being forged in fire…
Immortals may heal, but a wound of the heart lasts forever.

Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire has no profanity or explicit content, but lots of angst, a little humor, some sweet romance, and a ton of betrayal with plenty of vengeance. Oh, and let’s not forget–one ginormous black “kitty.”

Kayelle Allen Social Media

Kayelle Allen did a tour in the US Navy, where she climbed around airplanes (on the ground, thankfully) fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home.

She wrote her first science fiction novel at 18 and to this day, it’s hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories.

From childhood, Kayelle was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from her mother. From her father, she got a healthy respect for mechanical things.

No wonder she writes Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with misbehaving robots, mythic heroes, role playing immortal gamers, and warriors who purr. She’s been married so long she’s tenured.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I also write sci-fi, paranormal, fantasy, and contemporary romances. I also write humorous naughty romances as Carolyn Gregg, and horror as Gail Smith.
How do you come up with ideas?
Sometimes a picture or a song will give me the germ of an idea. Other times it might a bit of dialogue. And sometimes I’ll be challenged to write a certain type of story. Those are the most fun.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Simply sitting down and immersing myself back into the story. I always edit the previous chapter before starting the next one.
When did you write your first book?
When I was five years old. By the time I was in fifth grade, I was writing almost continuously (and I still have some of those spiral notebooks!) However, I didn’t submit my first manuscript and get published until 2005.

Tell us about Stone
Garenth had been awakened to retrieve an ancient artifact that was crucial to his well-being. He had few memories of what his life had been like when he had been a man. What memories that were left were filled with blood and excruciating pain.
That part of him was over now. The talisman had been taken from its sacred burial place, and it had to be returned as quickly as possible. It was up to him to follow through with his mission so he could return to another thousand years of sleep.
Brielle Van de Camp knew an extraordinary find when she saw it. The small clay figure was the key to a potentially earth‑shattering revelation about a previously unknown time in man’s ancestry. She would bet her life on it.
Unfortunately, others had gotten wind of the talisman, and they were equally determined to claim its promise for themselves. If Brielle wasn’t willing to part with the figurine, they had no compunction about prying it from her dead fingers.
They never counted on having to face the guardian of the statuette, who turned out to be more than a creature of mythology.
Warning! Contains a magic talking rock, a mother idol, boo-lets, a cell phone app, deadly intruders, a ruthless businessman, a key card, and a warrior trying to cope with an ages-old curse with the help of a woman who must be a blessing from the gods.

Puzzle House by Lillian Duncan
Life isn’t a box of candy—it’s a puzzle! Rachel Summers is all about Rachel Summers…until the day she crashes headlong into a semi-truck.
As her life hangs in the balance, she has a visitor who asks a very simple question. Does she want to be healed or to be a healer? She makes her choice, but the journey doesn’t go quite the way she expected.
And so Rachel now runs The Puzzle House. Every guest is different and yet the same. They all come to the Puzzle House for one reason and one reason only—to be healed. Sometimes they receive their miracle, and sometimes they discover there’s more than one kind of healing.
Nia is a fifteen-year-old African-American girl who is dying. The doctors have told her there is nothing else to be done. No more treatments. No more hope. No more life. And she’s angry about that. Very angry. Against her wishes, Nia’s aunt brings her to The Puzzle House.
Together, Nia and Rachel will take a journey that will change both their lives.

King of Swords by Anna Durbin @TheAnnaDurbin #RLFblog #RegencyRomanceAnna Durbin author of King of Swords answers five easy questions.

Please tell us about yourself.
Anna Durbin is the author of charming tales of the Beau Monde. Having grown up reading sagas of chivalry and romance, she began crafting her own elaborate stories in her imagination at a young age. It was only natural that she would one day write them down. Her first novel, King of Swords, was a 2012 Golden Heart® finalist.
Despite years of study in the biological and physical sciences, her true love has always been the literary arts. Inspired by her favorite author, Jane Austen, Anna adores the Regency Era and writes period pieces set during that time that show love conquering adversity. Oddly, for all her love of science and history, she is a faithful devotee of the New Age. She discovered tarot cards in a New Age shop in Minneapolis during a high school class trip one year and has been enchanted with them ever since. She enjoys weaving the symbolism of the tarot deck into her storylines.
Anna has lived in ten different states throughout her lifetime, from California to New Jersey. A Midwesterner at heart, she was born in Kansas and raised in Iowa. Currently, she lives in Wisconsin with her husband and works as a technician for local government.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Thai food. I love the spiciness of Thai cuisine.
Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
Mr. Darcy, of course! He’s the perfect not-so-perfect hero who risks it all for love.
Describe the perfect vacation.
The perfect vacation for me is doing absolutely nothing as I lie on a warm beach in the Caribbean, sun shining, palm trees swaying, the gentle ocean waves lulling me to sleep.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
Barbie and friends. My sister and I would play for hours with our Barbie dolls, making up wild stories and exploits for them, usually involving romance, of course!
What are your hobbies?
I like reading and collecting antiques. I also have a Barbie collection, which includes both vintage and contemporary dolls.
Please tell us about your latest book.
