In an instant, Detective Morgan Carbone’s life changes from day to night. Sociopath, serial killer and charmer, David McAllister won’t reveal where the bodies of several young women are located but Morgan is determined to get answers. She gets more than she bargained for when during an interrogation he attacks her by sinking his teeth into her hand. Though the wound heals quickly and perfectly, it leaves her with an insatiable bloodlust as she has now turned into a werewolf like her serial killer nemesis. With her world no longer as she knew it, she is propelled into a dramatic, action-packed journey that includes being forced to leave the country to kill an ancient vampiress. However, when Morgan sees her intended target, she finds that not only does the woman remind her of her one true love whom she lost years before, but she is falling for her as hard as she did with her former lover. Now Morgan must decide whether to complete her mission or risk her own life by giving in to her heart’s desire.
Please tell us about yourself using 3 verbs, 1 quirk and a pop culture addiction
Create, read, and cares. I am very messy. I’m obsessed with Once Upon a Time (and basically anything fairy tale related).
Who do you consider the most swoon-worthy man in the literary world? How about on tv/in the movies?
Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre. He’s a little abrasive but he’s always been one of my favorite male characters.
In tv/movies? Colin O’Donoghue aka Captain Hook from Once Upon a Time.
Tell us about some of the conventions you’ve attended as an author. Which was your favorite & why?
Ooooh I’ve been lucky enough to attend a lot of conventions over the past couple of years. I think it’s a tie between the Baltimore Comic Con and Faerie Con East because I was able to meet my favorite artist/writer/creator Terry Moore and I was able to meet Peter Mayhew (aka Chewbaca from Star Wars). And at Faerie Con East I was able to enjoy being immersed in the beautiful world fairies and everything that has to do with magic, fantasy and fairy tales.
What’s the last song you listened to?
Existentialism on Prom Night by Straylight Run.
How do you come up with character names? How do you come up with novel titles?
It really depends on the character. Sometimes the character appears with names, personality traits and everything in a neat little package. Sometimes all I have is a face and I have to come up with a name to go with it. Sometimes I’ll go on www.babynames.com and search until I find the right name with a meaning that is important to the character or the story.
It’s the same thing with the titles. Sometimes I have it from the get-go, other times I have to think long and hard before coming up with a good title.
