Thank you for stopping by to answer a few questions today, Erin!
What genres do you write? Paranormal romance and historical. I’m currently writing a series set in the Paleolithic – going to be a big departure for me, but a time period that is just fascinating.
How did you come to write these genres? Does anyone really know? I just sort of started with these stories that emerged as certain genres. I didn’t even know there were so many smaller sub-genres when I started writing, but you learn quickly! History and historical romances have always been a favorite, so I knew I would at least start heading in that direction eventually.
How long have you been writing? In a concerted way, about two and a half years.
Who is your favorite character from one of your books? Lara from Awakened by the Minotaur (not yet out) is probably my current favorite. She’s the sassiest of my heroines so far, and she also has a lot of issues to work through before she can love and be loved, so she is very real to me.
Do you plan your stories or do they evolve as you write? Sort of both. I have a general idea for a feeling/emotion and a setting, possibly even the hero and heroine, but then as I start writing their storyline goes in some unexpected directions.
Is there a special indulgence you allow yourself while you’re writing? Chocolate and caffeine. Okay, okay…chocolate at any time.
Tell us a little about your current work in progress. It’s set in ancient Turkey about 8,000 B.C.E. Piper, the heroine has intense visions of the world ending. And my hero has recently lost his wife and child, so he does not want to open himself up to anybody or anything. They’re both really struggling with their emotions.
The Shaman's Temptation
Madeleine Greenway, perfectionist and analyst for Surety Bank, has no place in her rigidly organized life for something as unpredictable as a man, much less a Native American shaman. Sent to the White Mountain reservation to help the tribe finance its new casino, she meets Tak, a proud, beautiful Apache, and finds herself surrounded by something magical in the Arizona desert. His touch becomes a passport to otherworldly bliss, and the strange coyote she sees makes her question what’s real. But it’s the amazing sex with Tak that makes Madeleine lose sight of her goal—to guarantee that Surety Bank’s investment in the casino won’t fail.
Last in a long line of shaman shape-shifters, Tak Nah-Kah-Yen has sworn a vow of celibacy to his gods. But Madeleine’s lithe body and honeyed lips compel him to forswear his pledge, claiming her for his own. His passion for her overshadows his link to his gods at a time when he most needs their help. Desperate to find funding for the casino and lift his people out of poverty, he’d accepted start-up money from less than savory sources who are willing to kill to guarantee their profit—the profit Madeleine’s bank jeopardizes…
