1. Tell us about your newest release.
Stolen souls, sexy pirate, and an elfin drow king who doesn't give second chances. It's a fast read with a little sweet and naughty mixed in and Captain Joren Steele is just the right guy for the naughty. He likes his ladies, including his ship.
2. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your story?
I was surprised by Joren the most. Not so much as a character but that he could look the other way so easily when it came to the stolen souls he smuggles to the underground. I didn't want to make him 'perfect' but I wasn't expecting that.
3. Do you have any interesting or quirks or rituals?
I'm told that the strangesat thing I do is lock myself in a room to write, but don't most writers?
4. What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a writer?
In becoming a writer, I had a lot of influence along the way. I can't say any one person or even two, I've always known I wanted to be an author and it just stuck with me. Though many people have encouraged and supported me throughout my life and several still do.
5. What does your family think about your career as a published author?
My career as a published author is just like any other job except I'm at home doing it. Sometimes I have to work overtime even. I just don't get paid by the hour like other careers. They are mostly helpful and encouraging of my books. I can't say they all read them because well I write a genre some of my family wouldn't touch with a ten foot poll. But they still listen when I need help.
6. Besides writing, what other interests do you have?
I love wood burning and crafts. I enjoy making homemade cards, picture scrapbooks, gifts, etc....
7. Can you tell us what is coming up next for you?
Coming next- well I have 4 stories in the works- one has a demon and no elf relation. One is spy elf related, one is bounty hunters, and another is the Drow king who suddenly decided he needed his story told.
8. How can readers connect with you online?
Stolen souls, an evil drow elf, a dark eyed beauty named Pepper, and a king who doesn't take kindly to the loss of his goods...Captain Joren Steele has his hands full.
When Pepper set out for the day, the last thing she expected was to come face to face with a pirate. But when she locks eyes with the Captain, she's ready to let him pillage or plunder whatever he wants. At least until his drow shipmate decided to steal her for himself.
Captain Joren Steele has a love for his ship, money, and females, usually in that order. When Pepper steps into his life, he's certain his love 'em and leave 'em status will remain intact. But when he discovers she's a victim of the drow, he has to make a choice: his ship or the elfess.
Pepper slammed into something solid. "Oaf." She fell on her rear and looked up.
Joren stood in front of her, tall, dark, and so hot.
"What are you doing, Tide?" His voice came out low.
Pepper peeked behind her. The drow had stopped.
"She's mine, pirate. Hand her over. You work for us. You have to do what I say."
Joren grinned. "Ye poxy bilge-sucker. I don't listen to ye. I help your king. He pays me to carry the cargo, not to hand over ladies to ye." His chest puffed out, and he set his legs apart, ready for a fight.
The drow didn't comment. Instead, he stepped over Pepper and slammed himself into Joren as he stomped off down the deck. Joren didn't budge or turn around to watch the elf go. His features softened, and he bent down on one knee in front of Pepper. Her heart skipped for an entirely new reason.
"Three saves in one day, me beauty. Ya owe me." He smiled and held out his rough hand to her.
She took it. "Three? I recall two. The crates and just now. Besides, I had the drow under control, so really, you saved me from the falling crates." She smoothed out her clothes and flipped her hair back. She should thank him, but he was so smug, looking over at her as if she was on the menu of his sexual dining experience.
Joren chuckled. A low sound, which lifted his shoulders. "Three, elfess." He pulled her grandmother's bag of spice from his front pocket and dropped it into her hands. He winked at her. "Iffin' ye had that drow under control, then what ye be doin' at me feet no more than a moment ago?"
Pepper raised an eyebrow. "You stepped in my way." She tucked the brown pouch into her pocket. She wanted off this wretched boat. She turned around and stormed away. The last thing she needed was to encourage a pirate. What did they do again? Oh, kill and loot, or pillage and plunder?
A hand spun her around by the elbow, and she found herself face-to-face with Joren and those blue eyes. He grabbed hold of her chin with his fingertips. "Wait a minute. I don't even get a thank you?" He frowned.
"Thanks." Pepper set her jaw.
"I be needin' something a little better than that. Tide will be back, and I will pay the brunt of saving your sweet little ass."
"What do you want?" She tried to break free, but he held fast.
"This." He bent over and claimed her lips with his own.
