Interview1. What flavor is your writing?
A little bit bitter, then a whole lot of sweet. One of the reasons I write romance is I love a happy ending, but I also like my characters to suffer before they get there.
2. If this book was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?
Scarlett Johansson for Daisy and Alex Skarsgard for Fergal.
3. What is your favorite scene in Blood and Metal?
I think my favorite scene is after Daisy and Fergal first try and get it together—not very successfully. Perhaps because it was the first real sign that there was more between them than just sex. Here’s a snippet:
Daisy crouched on all fours, head hanging like an exhausted dog as she fought the urge to throw up again. But there was nothing left. The contents of her stomach were splattered all over the floor and all over Fergal. The scene looked like something from a slaughterhouse.4. What are you reading now or what books do you have in your TBR pile?
He was still on the ground but up on his elbows, regarding her with a wary expression. Who could blame him? She’d lost it completely. If he’d been an ordinary human, he’d be dead.
It had felt so good. As she’d relaxed into the feelings, eased up on her control, something had woken inside her. But by the time she’d recognized the danger, it was too late and the darkness had taken her over, filled her.
Only the foul taste of Fergal’s blood had brought her back.
She was naked, a pulse throbbing between her legs.
Crap. Bet he thinks I’m sexy now. Not.
Finally, she sat back on her heels, forced herself to look into Fergal’s face. “Sorry.” He snorted but didn’t speak, and she gave a small shrug. “You probably have naked girls puking on you all the time.”
“It’s my technique.”
He looked so serious, lying in his blood and vomit-spattered uniform, that a giggle rose up inside her.
His eyes widened as she laughed, but a grin curved his lips, followed by a look of resignation. “Well, that didn’t go as planned. You know how long it’s been since I was with a naked woman? Too fucking long. Shit, my dick’s still hard even after all that.”
She glanced down at his groin. Definitely still hard. God, she wanted that erection. Life—or she supposed death in her case—sucked sometimes.
I’m re-reading Game of Thrones, because I loved it the first time, and I’m also reading a historical novel set in WW11, The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah, and finally, a how-to-write book, Spellbinding Sentences, by Barbara Baig.
5. What are you working on now?
I’m writing book 6 in my Dark Desires series, Flying through Fire. And I’m editing a contemporary romance, Her Fantasy Husband, book 2 in my Things to do before you Die series (book 1, His Fantasy Girl releases in October.)
Think Fast QuestionsCoffee or tea?
Tea, then coffee, then more coffee.
Cats or dogs?
Dogs, if I have to choose, but I have cats as well.
Series or standalone?
Series – I love that moment when you finish book one and realize there’s a whole load more out there.
Winter or summer?
Print or e-book?
ebook – I love long books and ebooks are so much easier to hold up for long periods. Plus, I live a long way from the nearest bookshop, and I hate waiting. I can buy ebooks at the click of a button.
