Author Thursday: Interview with Sharon Ashwood


1. What inspired this book?

I love putting new spins on old legends. What would the Knights of the Round Table—and their immortal enemies—do if they were dropped into modern times? Sure, the knights were heroic, sexy, and brave, but they had real emotions and foibles. Our world and the people in it are very different for them—especially since they have to do their heroics in secret. Add romance to the mix and let the fun begin.

2. What was the most difficult part about working on this book?

The Camelot stories have their roots in Arthurian legends, which some readers know well and others not at all. I’m careful to fill in the background so that no previous knowledge of the stories is necessary, and I do that without big chunks of explanation. It takes some time to get that right so everything is smooth and fast-paced.

3. Who is your favorite character in this book?

I love the version of Merlin I’ve created. He’s very wounded and guilty and has more secrets than even I know about. He’s a minor character but he really wanted to steal the show. Maybe someday I’ll let him.

Author Thursday: Spotlight on The Judas Contact by Heather Long

Book Info

Hope may prove their most dangerous threat.

Doctor Ilsa Blaine

Codename: Doc

Abilities: Designs programmable bioware, enhanced understanding of brain chemistry

Mission: Research, analyze and troubleshoot the team’s active microchips

On the cutting edge of neuroscience, Ilsa is developing microchips that can be inserted into the brain and deliver information. The applications are endless, but her current goal is just to get dogs to return to their owners should they ‘become lost.’ When her college roommate turns up asking for lunch, she’s hardly prepared for the chaos that ensues or the revelation her chip changed the world, and the lives of five heroes from the future. And now they need her help…

Garrett Fox

Codename: The Viper

Abilities: toxins, poisons and assassination, he can kill with a touch

Mission: Protect Ilsa Blaine

One of five desperate men sent back in time to save the future, Garrett volunteers to be the doctor’s guinea pig as she studies their neuro-chips. It’s not his first time being a lab rat. In close quarters, the unthinkable happens—an attraction that could kill Ilsa. Drawn together by science, and on the fast track to destiny, Ilsa and Garrett must save his team from their chips before they can end them, and maybe Ilsa can prove to Garrett he isn’t toxic to everything he touches…least of all her.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. An alliance with the modern day Halo has given their leader a taste of hope. For these five lonely soldiers, the single emotion may prove their most dangerous threat.
