Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Interview & Giveaway with author Alexa Grace! *GIVEAWAY OPEN*


Welcome Alexa! Thanks for stopping by. 

Spring is finally here! Have you started to any Spring cleaning? *looks around at so much work to be done..* *laughs*
Though it is killing me not to get started, I'm delaying Spring cleaning until after my next book Profile of Evil is published in May.What's your favorite thing about spring
I created an English garden in my front yard a couple of years ago, so my favorite thing about spring is working in the garden and watching the results of my hard work as everything blooms.Spring, also means your novel, PROFILE OF EVIL, is here! Can you tell us a little about this new trilogy?
Profile of Evil is the first book in the new Profile Trilogy and includes Carly Stone, who was introduced in Deadly Relations.

Carly Stone is a brilliant FBI agent who's seen more than her share of evil. Leaving the agency, she becomes a consultant for Indiana County Sheriff Brody Chase.  He needs her help to catch an online sex predator who is luring preteen girls to their death in his community.
The two resolve to stop this dangerous killer before he takes another young life — and time is running out.
Profile of Evil will be published in May 2013.

Which of your characters were the most challenging to write?
The sexual sadist, serial killer in Profile of Evil has been the most challenging to write because his character required so much research.  I was determined that his character, behaviors, and actions be credible so I researched by reading books written by profilers, discussed with my subject matter experts, etc.   This research was also needed so I could write an accurate profile for my Carly character

Do you think you'll ever write a romance outside of the suspense/thriller genre? 
I doubt that I will.  Suspense and thriller writing is what I was meant to do.  It's my passion.

Who are some of your favorite authors? 
I love reading books by James Patterson, Alison Brennan, Ann Rule, Kathryn Casey, Laura Griffin, and others.  I try to stick to the thriller or romantic suspense genre, but I have always been a fan of true crime.

A Few Randoms: 
Cats or Dogs?  I have five Miniature Schnauzers, three of which are rescues, that are important members of my family.

Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter?   I absolutely love the Fall and make a trip to Indiana every year to enjoy my family and the beautiful leaves.

Favorite TV Show?  Right now, my favorite program is The Following with Kevin Bacon.  The program is well written with strong elements of suspense.

Thanks for stopping by! 
Thanks so much for inviting me.
