Welcome to my blog today, Danica. It's wonderful having you here.
Nice to be here. Thank you for inviting me.
Let me ask you a few questions, okay?
I love everything that is out of the norm and Greek mythology certainly is a catalyst for launching into the wonderful world of my imagination. I’m a trained archeologist so I have a love for the things in life that are unexpected and often unexplainable!
With the popularity of vampire and animal shape-shifter romances, what made you decide to go with a nymph shape-shifter?
In doing my research (which I spend more hours doing than writing), I was researching nymphs and found throughout history that they are talked about as shape-shifters. I loved the premise of the woman being the shape-shifter. In addition to their shifting, they are also fated with a curse that forbids them to love. In my mind, nothing makes a stronger, more powerful romance, than a story based on forbidden love (Hello, Romeo and Juliet).
If you weren’t writing, what would you be doing?
If I wasn’t writing I would probably be attempting to sew more curtains—strange, I know. I’m a workaholic who lives in rural (I mean train tracks and a post office) Montana and we are in the midst of winter. Aside from skiing, sledding and general outdoor-centered frivolities there’s not much to do! J I’m better off writing; it keeps my mind fresh, my body warm, and I would lose my mind without the constant onslaught of stories.
What do you want readers to know and/or get from your books?
There are two things that will always be the center of my works 1.) Women can (and often do) save themselves. I love independent, strong-willed women.
What other projects do you have in the works?
I am contracted with Crimson Romance for the next two books in The Nymph Series. I’m going to be done with Montana Mustangs (Love the book!) soon and it should be coming out Spring/early Summer 2013. And I’m looking forward to starting the third book (I have it planned out, but I have a history of the book changing as it is being written). I also have another book that is in need of editing—it is the start of the next paranormal romance series about Irish Travellers.

Released December 31, 2012:
The Nymph’s Labyrinth
Tag Line: Forbidden passions threaten to expose deadly secrets...
Blurb: A world shrouded in mystery and intrigue, the Sisterhood of Epione must not be exposed.
A Shape-shifting nymph, Ariadne, is tasked with keeping the truth of her group’s existence and their ancient mysteries far out of reach of an American archeologist and his troublemaking son. When forgotten and forbidden passions are awakened, Ariadne is forced to make a choice—fall in line and continue to be overrun and pushed down by the sisterhood, or follow her heart and put everyone’s lives in danger.
Can she have the man she loves or will the pressure and secrets of the past keep her from her heart’s desire?

Publication Date: December 2012

Blurb: Even though Sarah Dawes is only dressed like an angel, acting like a saint isn't easy. Especially not at her sex toy company's Halloween party, where hedonistic desire is the name of the game and the Devil is her partner. Playing with dangerous pleasures, she follows him to Hell, where he shows her he is more than the monster society has deemed him, and he offers her a chance to become his queen. Should she stay at his side, where her days will be filled with pain, but her nights with pleasure? Or, should she return to earth and the dream of a man who may or may not even know her last name?
