Can you tell us about your book, Eternal Tuat, in 10 words or less?
Story of how one so lovable can become so evil.

How long did it take you to write Eternal Tuat?
I'd interviewed Bagsu for a couple of years by the time I was writing Eternal Blades, Book 3 in the series. Questions rose when he refused to drain Jennifer dry. Then of all things he returned her and two others to the Guardians. This was not in his character. Bagsu would just as soon use and discard any woman or any person... so why?  When I sat down and asked him why, his answers were some what short. I pushed. He ended up sharing his story with me and why he did what he did leaving me with different questions. Is the son of pure evil, redeemable? Only time will tell, but I know have a clearer understanding of him and  how two brothers could be so different. The actual writing process was relatively short compared to the interview process.

What was your favorite scene to write?
My favorite scene to write lead into the hardest. A couple of nights after he and Akhakh run away.  

If you could cast anyone to play some of the main characters, who would you choose?
I've always pictured Dwayne Johnson as Gabriel and since Gabriel and Bagsu are twins, guess that means he would have to play both roles since they are identical twins.

Did any music inspire you while writing?
I write in total silence.

What is currently in your TBR pile?
The King by J.R. Ward. Sadly, my signed edition is sitting on my desk and I haven't had a spare moment to pick it up. I'm planning a trip to California this next week so hopefully while I'm held up in some motel room I'll have time to get started on it.

Chocolate or Vanilla? 
A little of both please.

Cats or Dogs? 

Once Upon a Time or Grim? 

The Hunger Games or The Mortal Instruments? 
I read both, watched both... although I enjoyed both, I'll go with Mortal Instruments.

Chinese or Italian?
I eat Chinese at least three times a week. Think I am addicted.

Ebooks or Hardcopies? 
Hardcopies... of course that requires purchasing more bookcases, but I don't mind.

Coffee or Tea?

Best book you’ve read recently? 
Skyrize, a Sci-fi New Adult thriller. Sadly, it isn't out yet. I was given an ARC copy to read and review.

Favorite TV show?
Game of Thrones 

Celebrity Crush? 
Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock

Current Favorite Song? 
My Immortal

Most anticipated 2014/2015 book?
Would it be wrong to say, Eternal Life, the fifth book in the series... Due out late Summer/early Fall.
