Why did you write this book?
Prince of Fools is the third installment in my four book “House of Terriot” dark shapeshifter series. The Terriot clan was initially introduced as villains in my “By Moonlight” shapeshifter series, their warrior family ruled by the brutal iron-fist of Bram the Beast until overthrown by rowdy, rock-n-roll brawler son Cale in a move that divided the House and its twelve princes. The deliciously dark and dangerous brothers caught my creative attention, seducing me into giving them their own spin-off series and I’m totally loving each connected yet capable of standing alone book.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read anything and everything but my go-to has a touch of suspense and a hint of the paranormal. Dean Koontz is my all-time favorite author.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That would be a favorite couple, Eve Dallas and Rourke from J. D. Robb’s “In Death” series. Their relationship is constantly evolving and never ceases to fascinate. They inspired me to write my “By Moonlight” series with a continuing hero and heroine, something not unusual in Urban Fantasy but rarely done in Romance.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m getting ready to start Prince of Dreams, the fourth and final “House of Terriot” book which features the youngest prince, who prefers to use brains over brawn in the fight for his family’s survival until forced to decide between their path and his love for their enemy’s daughter. The heroine is a fortune teller whose gift is from a source she doesn’t understand and I’m loving researching the Tarot and other divination arts.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
Prince of Dreams should debut in the spring of 2018 along with the reissue through Tell-Tale Publishing of my very first novel, Sweet Tempest, a historical regency written as Lauren Giddings. I’m planning at least one more book with Max and Charlotte, the fan favorite couple from my “By Moonlight” series as well as bringing back my “Bass Family of Texas” western historicals written as Dana Ransom. Lots of exciting and varied reading to watch for!
