Tagline:
Blurb: Seacat John McCall labels the
attack on the Sea-anan Empire as a nightmare. He escapes the enemy’s invasion, only
to find himself stranded on a distant planet called Surreal. Tormented by thoughts
of his family being massacred or captured by the enemy, he focuses on returning
to aid them until he experiences a mind-boggling kiss that can only come from the
one he is meant to share his life with. To ease the terror he feels for his family,
John seeks the identity of his secret admirer. He quickly learns the true meaning
of nightmare when he discovers his soul mate is of “the mist.”
Jasira Eversole is drawn to the powerfully
built outlander sitting at the king’s table. Unable to resist the need to see him
again, she enters the warrior’s room while he sleeps. John’s rugged good looks and
chiseled body compel Jasira to reach out and touch him. Being of the mist, Jasira
knows she will not be able to feel John, but she cannot resist his pull. The richness
of John’s hair, the firmness of his muscles, and the clean scent of his skin all
take Jasira off guard. She swiftly realizes John is her intended mate. Now, Jasira
must somehow convince the young warrior that they are two halves of one soul without
chasing him off Surreal, leaving her to a lonely existence as mist.

Interview

What inspired you to write this book?
I read a ghost story written by Anne Rice. In one scene, a male
spirit intimately explored the main female character. I was intrigued. When it came
time to write John’s story, I was trying to figure out who was going to be his wife.
That’s when I thought about Anne Rice’s spirit. I had a lot of fun writing this
story.
Which character in your current book do you think readers
will like the most? Why?
I believe readers will
like John McCall. He is a mixture of Indiana Jones and Hans Solo. He is tall, intelligent,
strong, handsome, and has a caring heart. He is also loyal. What more can a woman
want?
Why do you write?
I write because I love
to write. It’s my drug, my addiction. If I don’t write, I’m not happy.
Who has helped you the most in your career as an author?
My husband Alan. He has
been my backbone since the beginning. Without him, I would not be able to pursue
my dreams full-time. Without him, “A Lost Kitten” and its sequel,
“A Forgotten Kitten” would still be on my desk instead of in readers’
hands.
When you write, what things do you want close at hand?
When I write a new story,
or I have to edit an existing one, I need my mug of coffee next to me, and my inspiration
image on my computer screen.
When you’re not writing, what would we find you doing?
The only time I’m not
writing, editing, or promoting, is when I’m brain dead. If that’s the case, you
will find me either reading, watching TV, or playing video games.
Are you a plotter, or do you prefer to make it up on the spur
of the moment?
Plotter? I’m not even sure how to do that. Once I have a scene
in my head, I write it down. The story grows from there. I just jot down scene after
scene as it flows in my head. Once it’s all on paper, I go back and flesh it out,
adding more where is necessary to help the story move along and come alive.
What’s your writing schedule like?
Being a mother of 14-year-old triplets, I write whenever I get
the chance, which is why I work from a laptop. I have spent countless hours working
in my car waiting for my kids to finish their afterschool programs.
What aspect of your life do you write into your books?
Hahaha Everything. Love.
Family. Friendship. Loyalty. Betrayal. Prejudice. Death. And multiple infants.
When an idea hits you, what do you do to capture it?
I quickly jot it down on paper, so I can explore it on a later
date.
Which of your books was the hardest to write and why?
Book one of the Oceanan
Saga, “A Seacat’s Love”, is the next book I am going to introduce to my
readers. I felt this one was the hardest to write because it took place on Earth
where there are no magical creatures or magic in general. I had to introduce my
aliens carefully and have everything make plausible sense without the story being
boring. I hope I got it right.
What’s the best gift you ever received?
A Kindle from my husband
and kids. Now I will never be without a book to read.
If you could time travel, what era would be your first stop?
I would travel back to the 1800’s. I just love the clothes the
women wore back then.
Do you believe in luck?
Absolutely.
What kind of music do you listen to while driving? Same question
when writing?
When driving, I listen to pop music. I don’t listen to music
when I’m writing. In fact, I can’t hear noise when I write. Noise pulls me out of
the world I’m in, in my head and keeps me from seeing my characters and their lives.
I have earplugs for those extra noisy days.
What’s your favorite movie?
Harry Potter. Independence
Day. Jurassic Park. I have so many.
Are you the eldest, middle, baby, or only child?
I am the middle child
and the eldest daughter.

Please complete the sentence

I love pizza with Pepperoni.
I’m always ready for a cup of coffee.
When I’m alone, I am on my computer working.
You’d never be able to tell, but I had triplets.
If I had a halo, it would be
sparkling like diamonds.
If I could sell more books and have a steady income, I
would hire a cook.
I can never teach my teenagers how to drive, because I’m
too much of a coward
