It’s a two parter with an explosive conclusion.
2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
I saw a picture done by the fabulous Renee George and I fell in love. The story came from that picture and I am blessed to have it as the cover art for this book.
3. What genre does your book fall under?
Paranormal, Interracial, Homoerotic, Rural fantasy, GBLT… it crosses a lot of genras and sparked off a lot of stories for this universe.
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
ACK! Actors…. Hmmm, for Angel the human (maybe) protagonist a buffed up Lenny Kravits or Jason Momoa…. *g* And for the second protagonist, my winged warrior fae… Dustin Clare from Spartacus or Chris Hemsworth
5. What is the book blurb for your book?
How much pain can one soul take before it shatters?
Angel Falls, foundling turned NFL star quarterback, and fae warrior prince Klintic have both been tested in the fires of torment and anguish and managed to survive — to find each other.
That the ex-footballer and the betrayed prince manage to discover each other is a miracle. Staying together will be an even bigger challenge. But Angel Falls, Maryland, is a town like no other. And with a town full of geeks and weirdoes on your side, reporters and rogue scientists don’t stand a chance. Broken wings will be mended, and their souls will learn to fly once more.
6. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
This book flowed! It took me about two weeks to get the first draft done and then another week playing with it before it got sent off to my beta for review. My editor flipped because it was longer than the usual Changeling Press release, even after I cut it down a lot, but that meant I could make this one a two parter and not get murdered. *g* Did I mention I love this universe?
7. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Within all the genras I have crossed, I don’t think I have ever read a story quite like this one. I can’t think of anything to compare it to. It has dimensional jumping, the fae, the attack of the paparazzi, an ex football star…. Maybe a very twisted cousin to the now canceled Eureka TV series if the town was inhabited by paranormal creatures living in kind of secret with humans and there were scandals and dimensional jumps, and a warrior prince and a fae kingdom and treason… can’t forget about the treason… and the main characters were gay…. Oh dear! See what I mean?
8. Who or What inspired you to write this book?
This book came strictly from the Renee George picture. There is so much angst, love, caring, hope– all kind sof emotions– presented there. The characters jumped at me and told me their stories and I had to get them down on paper. I love it when books come to you like that. They take on a life of their own.
9. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It is part one of a major two part book that will throw you headfirst into the world of Angel Falls and its amazing characters. There is always something new, someone who has a story to tell in this small Maryland town and all of their stories will be heard. Plut this place is just good fun from the 89 year old ex-pinup girl tattoo artist Snake who has a secret of her own to the town sheriff who is quite a mystery in his own right. This town let me play with the mythology of a lot of different beings and place them in a setting that is sometimes dangerous, often times surreal, and almost always fascinating.
