I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about the book.

An Awareness of Evil in Mystic Desire by Dee S Knight

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Mystic Desire, is a collection of short paranormal romance stories. I have always been a big fan of short stories, both reading and writing them. For the reader it is a chance to read the work of a diverse group of authors. I have discovered some great writers from reading short stories. From the author’s prospective, it gives us a chance to experiment on something new, a different style, or something a bit more daring.

The themes are varied from native American Dream Catchers, to lustful, vampires. And from hot warlocks to a zombie apocalypse. There is something in this anthology for everyone, from soft and tender love, to hot passionate, kinky sex.

An Awareness of Evil – Dee S Knight

Only two things stand between evil and a small girl: the visions of Amanda McMasters and Detective Brendan Gilchrist. Neither can afford to be wrong.

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Professionally, Amanda is a fabric artist. She’s always tinkering with ideas and concepts that she can turn into stunning artistic pieces. But when she needs a break, she goes antiquing, tries a new recipe, gardens, or reads. Her commissions keep her pretty busy, however.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

A Baby Ruth candy bar. She hates seeing them on store endcaps because she’s always tempted to buy!

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

She’s one of those people who can throw on an old scarf and look stylish, so she looks good in most anything. When going out, she likes to wear skirts and colorful tops, with pumps. Yes, she’s old-fashioned that way. At home, comfort is paramount. She’s in tees or a long-sleeved knit shirt (Idaho gets cold!), sweatpants, comfy jeans, or cargo pants so she has plenty of places to stash all the things she likes to have handy.

Does she know how to fix things?

Yes. She’s been on her own since leaving school and has found that YouTube can help you fix almost anything. No clogged pipe is getting the best of Amanda McMasters!

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

This is an example of no good deed going unpunished–she tried to do the right thing and it went wrong. She used her psychic capability to save a child. When word got out, she was deluged with calls and visits from people clamoring for her help. She didn’t know how to handle it. Panicking and overwhelmed, she packed up and moved. Not a very good response.

She doesn’t “take” to children she doesn’t know, although she doesn’t dislike children in general. Children in need seem to have an affinity for her. This is the second child in danger who has reached out psychically for her help.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Amanda is one of those dreaded “Oh look! It’s another beautiful day!” people. She likes her coffee first thing, but she’s perky even without it.

Can she use chopsticks?

No. Never seen a need for them.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Yes, and she drinks it black and strong.

What apps would she have on her phone?

She lives in a university town and would have an app for events at the school. Also, for several upscale fabric vendors she uses. Lastly, apps for galleries that feature her work.

Android or iPhone?


Earrings or unpierced ears?

Pierced ears. While in school she once thought about getting her tongue pierced but backed out.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She has a truck but she’s close enough to downtown to walk, which she does frequently.

Recycle or toss?

Tossing is easier. Her town has made so many rules for recycling that she has to force herself to keep up and separate her trash. But she does because deep down she thinks it’s the right thing to do.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
