Behind the Faerying Mysts, hidden from Mortal eyes, is a land where Gods, creatures of myth and legend dwell. And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess lives.
Quinn Sinclair is clueless to who she is. She thinks she's an ordinary young woman—well, mostly ordinary—living an ordinary life with her less than loving mother in Conifer, Colorado. On the night of her birthday, Quinn finds herself betrayed by a man who sends her life spinning out-of-control.
As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she finds herself transported into a Magykal battle forever changing her life.
Arik Morgaine—Demigod bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm—tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn Sinclair for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans. Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers. Can the two of them come together and save the Magykal Realm from being destroyed by the Darkest of Magyks, or will powers beyond their control destroy them and their world forever?
- Where did you get the idea for the novel?
First I want to say, thank you for having me. Let's see, I was recovering from surgery and was bored. I'd never written for fun before, but with nothing else to do, I sat down and started writing about an old memory. Eventually, the memory morphed into a story, and that story evolved into Colour Wielders.
- Your title. Who came up with it? Did you ever change your title?
I wrote down several title and narrowed it down from there. I think it may have had a different title at some point but I can't remember what it was.
- Which came first, the title or the novel?
The novel came first.
- Since becoming a writer, what’s the most exciting thing to ever happen to you?
I guess signing the publishing contract. But since then it's connect with the readers of are or have read Colour Wielders and enjoyed it.
- What book are you currently reading or what was the last book you read?
I'm currently reading The Ivy Lessons by SK Quinn and Claim Me by J Kenner. The last book I finished was Up to Me by M. Leighton. That was a great book. Her The Bad Boys series rocks.
- What was your first book that you ever wrote (very first one you wrote, not published)?
Colour Wielder is my first ever book. It took me four years to perfect.
- What is your writing process?
I don't know I have one exactly, I just write.
- Who are your favorite authors of all time?
Right now, one of my favs is Darynda Jones. She writes the Charley Davidson series. What I love about her is her humor, it's off the wall and so funny. Plus, Reyes is hot! I also love Jim Butcher for many of the same reasons, and JR Ward. And of course, J.K. Rowling!
- At a book signing, do you just sign your name or do you write a note? How do you come up with stuff to say?
Haven't done a signing yet, but I'll probably come up with some besides just signing my name.
- What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I just asked my friend. She said my age (don't ask, I'm not telling :) ) and that I like to read erotica even though I don't write it. But it has to be good erotica, not porn without plot.
- How do you react to a bad review?
Well, so far, I haven't had any. The only negative thing was a comment on the cover, but nothwithstanding that, it was a 5 star review. I know the first downright bad one will probably have my curling into the fetal position, clutching a bottle of tequila. But the truth is, not everyone will like your book. That's okay, because I put out the best story I was capable of.
- How did you celebrate the sale of your first book?
Went out to dinner with my husband and had margaritas. Then that weekend, I met some fellow Curiosity Quills authors in Austin and had a blast.
