Welcome. Thanks for stopping by!
Plan?! Whoever said I had a plan! Oh, no, there was never a plan. Heck even writing vamps was never planned. It was kind of an accident. lol. The truth is that so long as the ideas keep coming, the readers keep reading, and the publisher continues to be willing to publish them, the series will no doubt continue. That’s the extent of my ‘plan.’ (Grin)
However, I can tell you right now that there are three more stories already written after Hungry for You and that I just signed a contract for four more. So there will be at least six more books and one anthology to come.
2011 holds a new series for you. The Madison Sisters sounds great. Can you tell us a little about it?
It’s about three sisters, one of whom is married to a Dick (No really, he goes by the name Dick as opposed to Richard) Fairgrave. The name fits, however. At any rate, Dick isn’t the Prince Charming he presented himself to be to woo the oldest sister, Christiana, into marriage and has set a whole host of troubles on them. The three stories in the series show each of the sisters dealing with and surmounting the troubles and wolves set on them by Dick’s death. Fortunately, they have each other, and some true Prince Charmings to help them through.
Will there be any Highlander novels released in 2011?
No, there won’t be any in 2011, however I do intend to go reread the series and see if Will or Ian or any of the other sexy single Highlanders decide to talk to me and tell me their stories. If so, you can expect to read them starting in 2012 after the last of the three Madison sister’s books.
Anyone who reads my blog knows I love cover art. Who is your cover art designer for your Argeneau series?
My publisher, Harper Collins, is in charge of all the cover art. I really don’t have much say in that or the back blurb and so on. Mostly my input is between the pages. Sorry I couldn’t help you there.
I know this will be hard to choose, but which novel from each series was your favorite to write, (or was your favorite once finished)?
My favorite in the Argeneau series would have to be Single, White Vampire. Probably because it was the first finished. You never forget your first. As for my historicals, my favorite was always The Deed. I guess I have a soft spot for the first books I wrote.
In the Highlander series, I guess my favorite would have to be Taming The Highland Bride. I really enjoyed Merry’s independent nature especially since it was such a No, No in Medieval Times. And as for the Madison sisters’ stories, my favorite would have to be Christiana’s novel, The Countess. It was good to see dumb Duke, Dickie, die.
Do you read many books as of late? Do you have any books that you are currently enjoying?
Hmm… I’d love to say I read a lot. I used to, but as I’ve gotten busier and busier I find I don’t have nearly the amount of time I once had for reading. I have recently read Terri Garrey’s Nicki Styx series and I quite enjoyed them. I did start into another author’s book last week, but it didn’t hold my interest and I ended up putting it down after a chapter or two.
I know usually this isn't the author’s choice, but if it was...Which one of your books would you like to be made into a film?
Jeez… I would have to say either Accidental Vampire or The Renegade Hunter because they were full of humor and action. On the more thriller/action side of things I would have to choose The Immortal Hunter.
Are you currently working on any other projects?
I just finished a story on Harper who was one of Elvi’s potential suitors in The Accidental Vampire and another story on Christian Notte, Margeurite’s son, who readers met in Vampire, Interrupted. And an anthology about Teddy, the police captain of Port Henry whom we also met in The Accidental Vampire. I wrote those for September 1st, October 1st and November 1st and am now getting corrections and copy edits and catching up onemails. The next story I’ll start will be the third sister from the Maddison sisters which is due March 1st and then the next in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series, which will either be Jeanne Louise’s story, or one of the Nottes. It’s due April 1st.
