1. What interested you about demons?
I like the thought of turning a creature normally considered to be evil into a hero. What if demons aren’t necessarily evil? How would a human react to learning this?2. How did you come up with the idea for the story of Blood of the Demon?
The character of Keegan first came to me in a dream. I knew he was a half demon, and not a demon in the biblical sense. My demons are a species of beings from another dimension called Infernum. While they aren’t evil creatures from Hell, I did want them to come from a dark, hellish world that parallels our version of Hell. And so Infernum was born.3. How did you pick the title and cover of your book?
With lots of help from the publisher! BLOOD OF THE DEMON was originally entitled DEMON BORN, but my publisher wanted something more catchy that tied into the book.4. Do you write your own blurb or someone else does it for you?
I write the initial blurb, then it’s revised by the editorial staff and polished until it shines. :)5. What would you advice a new writer who is struggling to get the ideas flowing and into the screen?
Keep writing. It may seem difficult at first, but everything gets easier with practice. Also find a source of inspiration, whether it’s from movies, reading, or simply going out and observing others. I get lots of my ideas from watching television!6. Anything you would like to ask our readers?
Yes! I’d love to know, what are your favorite types of paranormal heroes, and why?

Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, interdimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment.
Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she's also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon's Most Wanted List.And no one wants her more than Keegan's father.Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he'll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics-the far deadlier, uncontrollable half-when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he'll never be able to resist.
About the Author:
Formally trained as a corporate and real estate lawyer, I practiced law for 5 years before finally admitting to myself that negotiating contracts wasn’t nearly as fun as dreaming up stories. As an avid reader of romances and supernatural stories, I knew I wanted to write urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Tales of vampires, demons, and other supernatural beings ensued.
I’m currently working on the Demons of Infernum series, a series of paranormal romance novels featuring four sexy half-demon brothers and their reluctant heroines.
When not writing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son in our home state of Florida, as well as searching out things that go bump in the night. I still haven’t found any, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.If I ever do find evidence of the supernatural, it remains to be seen whether I’ll jump around in excitement, or run screaming in terror (but I’m betting on the latter)!
