New Release and Author Interview!

New Release:
Bitter Thorn Tribe

Book Description:

Destined to be a bride, if only the gods will let her

Stacy Macken tries to acclimate herself to her training under Tuatha dé Danaan druids—as if she doesn’t have enough work in planning her wedding to her beloved guardian and fiancé Aaron.

When Fomorii loyalists violate their treaty and seek revenge for their recent defeat, even Stacy’s druids are at a loss to explain the mayhem that ensues. Can Aaron and his brothers-in-arms stop it before Stacy and her family are caught in the crossfire?

BITTER THORN TRIBE is related to DRUID WARRIOR PRINCE but is set in modern times. It takes place after Stacy finishes reading DRUID WARRIOR PRINCE (and DRUID WARRIOR'S HEART) and deals with her current generation of the Macken Family and their troubles with Balor.

Author Interview:

1. How many hours a day do you write?
I write in spurts all throughout the day so I’d say 4-6 on a good day, 2-4 on others.

2. How do you prefer to write your books - with a pen/pencil, typing, or dictation?
Since the whole publishing world works on computers, I prefer to have something typed up. If my carpal tunnel is getting in the way, I will resort to pen but since my handwriting isn’t the best, I’ve recently gone to dictation. However, even there sometimes, there’s some editing that must be done before I drop dictated scenes into my manuscript. But it’s better than trying to decipher my scribble. 😉

3. What was the first book that you wrote and did you publish it?
I wrote one about King Arthur in an old notebook so it might only be 50 pages long—and no. I didn’t attempt to get that one published, and never will! *shudder*

4. If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be? 
Start earlier than college, and (as I wrote poetry for much of my teen years) don’t wait as long as I did to get serious about writing prose.

5. What would you like readers to know about your latest book or book project?
My latest novel is a paranormal romance called Bitter Thorn Tribe and the follow up to my novel Keeper of the Grove and continues off the end of the events in that book. Stacy and her fiancé have many more problems than just caterers, wedding attire, and running their history center. More supernatural problems. 😊

6. How many books do you plan to write for this series (if you’re writing a series)?
For this series? I’ve got one more in revisions. Hopefully, I’ll have it done before the end of the year. *knock on wood*

7. What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?
I once took a trip to Pensacola, to research a fort there, for my other series, Antique Magic. That was a good investment, I think. For Bitter Thorn Tribe, it would have to be all the books on Celtic mythology and culture I’ve amassed over the years. 😊

8. What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
To be honest, I grew up surrounded by brothers and male friends but… most of the men I know are nothing like the alpha males in most novels so jibing what I know of them against the demands of the genre always takes a little finagling, every time I write a hero.

9. Where do you usually find inspiration for your books?
Everywhere seems a lame answer but it’s true. A misheard quote might spark something or a newspaper article. In the case of Bitter Thorn Tribe, it was that, after I wrote the two related books to Keeper of the Grove (that being Druid Warrior Prince and Druid Warrior’s Heart) I realized Stacy and Aaron had more to do in our time so set to work on what became Bitter Thorn Tribe.

10. What was your hardest scene or book to write?
The hardest scene in Bitter Thorn Tribe was a … spoiler about a certain minor-but-important character I’d rather not divulge. The hardest novel to write? That would probably be my 2016 Gothic Romance novel, Lady of the Tarot. A lot of really hard emotions came out for me while I wrote that one!

11. Does your family support your career as a writer?
They do, and I’m grateful for it! 😊
