The vampire drug, brew, nearly ruined Gwen Sparks’ life. Just when things started to get back to normal between her and Aiden, she is summoned by the North American Witches Council to their central city of Moon.
A war is imminent between vampires and witches, and Gwen’s experiences with brew are being used to fuel the fire. She is about to discover just how powerful she is with the help of the ruggedly handsome Angel of Death and just how far some people will go to get what they want.
Gwen is going to learn exactly what it means to be Deceived.
Tell us a little bit about your book and have you published before?
My Gwen Sparks series is about a witch who has an affinity for the dead. In the first book, Craved, we learn that she can see the memories of the dead just by touching them. In the second book, Deceived, Gwen learns that there’s a deeper meaning to her magic. She’s what is known as a spirit walker—a witch able to not only see the dead, but interact and control it. I published for the first time in July 2011. Since then I have published 3 full length novels and 1 short story.
Will this be the only book in the series?
All of my books will be series. I don’t like the idea of stand-alone books. I like to get to know the characters and see them in different scenarios. Right now I have two series—The Gwen Sparks series, and The Anna Avery series.
Are you currently working on anything else?
I am working on the 3rd book in my Gwen Sparks series, the 2nd book in my Anna Avery series and two short stories.
Do you have any advice for authors wanting to publish? (Why did you choose to go indie? If this applies – If not why traditional)
Originally I began writing as a challenge to myself. I wanted to see if I could complete a full length book. I was invited into a writer’s group on Facebook, and there I met some wonderful people who got me excited to publish my work. I never thought about going the traditional route. I like the idea of being my own boss and writing when, and what I want. Going the Indie route allows me this freedom.
What is your favorite writing snack?
I don’t snack while I’m writing, but I do have to have a pepsi.
What gets you in the mood to write?
There are numerous things that can inspire me to write. If I hear a song that has a great story behind it, it can spark an idea. The weather can play a role in my creativity as well. I love writing during thunderstorms or gloomy days.
Who is your favorite character and why?
That’s a tough one. It’s like asking me to choose my favorite child (If I had children) I love all of my characters for different reasons. If I’d have to pick I’d say the female leads—Gwen and Anna. I love their smart mouths and take-no-bull attitudes.
Favorite book of all time?
Another tough one. I know there is a lot of debate on Twilight, and I can see both the pros and cons of the storyline. But Twilight is where it all started for me. If I hadn’t picked up those books then I don’t think I would have gotten into reading, and therefore into writing. They will always be special to me in the sense of helping me find my dream.
As for reading, I’d say the Sookie Stackhouse books. I could reread them a million times and never get tired of them.
I think breakfast says a lot about a person, what is your perfect breakfast?
I love breakfast foods. If I could eat it all the time I would. My perfect a.m meal would be a loaded omelet—bacon,sausage,cheese with a side of fried potatoes and orange juice.
Do you have a favorite period of time that you like to write about or would like to live?
I don’t have a favorite time frame I like to write about, but I love movies from the 18th century and from the 1920’s. If I could go back in time those are the eras I’d like to visit.
Please tell us in one sentence why we should read your book!
My books are full of paranormal creatures, romance and hunky men.
