Linda Mooney, 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.
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.
Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Black
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Soft cotton
Ocean or mountains? Ocean (I’m fortunate to live near the Gulf of Mexico.)
City life or country life? Country life. Slow and easy.
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home.
Dogs or cats? Dogs! (I have two dachshunds.)
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.
