Here we are at the ‘normal’ and ‘not so normal’ question spot.
‘Normal’ Question Spot
1. What genre do you write in?
I write fiction; primarily urban fantasy and paranormal romance.
2. What do you love about it?
I love bringing my stories into the world. There are a lot of characters and ideas running amok in my head.
3. Who, or what, inspired you to write?
I’ve been writing stories since I was a kid. My Irish grandmother inspired me with her stories of the Fae, including one tale of her personal encounter with a Banshee in her root cellar. Imagination fueled, I wrote a lot of tales as a kid. And I haven’t stopped yet.
4. You have two book series, THE BLACK HILL WOLVES, and THE TRANQUILLI BLOODLINE. What are they about?
Decadent Publishing’s Black Hills Wolves line is a paranormal romance, multi-author, shared world centering around the Tao wolf pack of Los Lobos, in the Black Hills of South Dakota. All books are standalone and can be read in any order. I wrote a “Moon” trilogy about my Luparell siblings for the series: Diamond Moon (Ross and Darci), Under A Mating Moon (Lexi and Jake), and Jasmine Moon (Evan and Jasmine). In my three stories, I introduce my new characters and locations to the world, use some preexisting town locales for a few activities (such as Gee’s Bar), and have other author’s characters make cameos. And, of course, romance is front and center in all my stories, as my heroes and heroines work for their Happily Ever Afters.
The Tranquilli Bloodline is my urban fantasy, vampire series, published by Champagne Books. The series stars Carina Tranquilli, a San Francisco dance club owner whose world is turned upside down when she discovers she has a vampire family. Dysfunctional family drama ensues, complicated by her family’s numerous enemies who’d love to use Carina as a pawn. Or, kill her. They’re not too picky. In between much vampire mayhem, Carina meets her soul mate Alexander, a sexy, undead musician… Two novels and one short story are currently available in the series: Haven (#1), Destiny (#2), and Vampire Code (.5). The third novel, Origins, is in progress…
‘Not so normal’ Question Spot
1. You’ve been bitten by a werewolf the month before. It’s the full moon and tonight’s the night of your first change. How do you prepare for this? What color is your fur?
Oh, easy! I hang out with my wolf shifters: my Black Hills Wolves and also the sexy-as-sin Wallace wolves from the Tranquilli Bloodline series. Knowing the Wallace men, they’ll likely ply me with a bit of whiskey before the shift happens. I’m sure all of them will provide me with numerous pointers and then take me for my first-ever run, in the Marin Headlands (just over the Golden Gate Bridge). My fur is red, of course. I’m a redhead, after all.
2. Are you a lone wolf or part of the pack?
Definitely part of a pack! Have I mentioned the sexy Wallace men? Oh, right. I have, LOL.
3. Your sire has sent you on a quest to bring back one of his flock. What magical creatures or persons do you bring with you to accomplish that task?
Assuming the missing flock member was kidnapped… I bring along two vampire enforcers (Primo and Segundo) and the Wallace wolf brothers because they’re all fierce fighters and excellent trackers.
4. You’re a newly sired vampire. Where do you sleep? What do you hunt and with who?
I sleep in my bedroom in my comfy bed, of course. With blackout curtains on the windows. I don’t hunt; my sire’s minions bring us blood from the blood bank or from a willing donor.
Awesome answers! I would love to hear about your grandmother’s experience with the Banshee someday. Scratch the surface and you often find that the unexplained has visited us all in some way, shape, or form.
