Can you please describe your Vampires In America series for those who haven't read or heard of it?
Do you plan on writing books for all of the Vampire Lords?
Yes, absolutely. The series Vampires in America is designed for eight volumes, one for each territory within North America. And then, I could go on to Europe, thus making my European vacations tax deductible!!
Who is the hardest character for you to write?
The hardest characters for me to write are the women. Surprisingly, I can write the guys' POVs pretty easily, whether vamp or human. But the women are more difficult. Maybe because it's an effort not to turn every character into the person I know best ... me.
Do you have a favorite character? (Duncan is one of my favorite characters)
There are many paranormal creatures you could write about, why vampires?
Have you always wanted to be a writer?
If you could collaborate with any author, who would you pick?
What is in your to be read pile?
I have two TBR piles. One is newly released books which I devour the minute they're out. Those are all gone for now, but I just received word from Amazon that Eileen Wilks' latest World of the Lupi book and Nalini Singh's Archangel's Kiss are on their way to me! Those are two more wonderful writers with whom I'd be thrilled to work and whose books I can't wait to read as soon as they come out. But once my "devour immediately" pile is tapped out, I have a backlog of writers I've just discovered. For example, right now I'm reading my way through the extensive backlists of Linda Howard and Karen Robards.
Do you have a favorite paranormal series?
Do you have any favorite vampires? From movies, TV or books
In books, my favorite vampire (apart from my own, of course) is Dante Baptiste from Adrian Phoenix. And then there's Eric Northman from Charlaine Harris. I loved him in the books and was very happy with the casting of Alexander Skarsgard to play him in the HBO True Blood series. Old school, I really liked Spike and Angel (with a slight preference for Spike) from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Henry from the short lived series Blood Ties, based on Tanya Huff's Vicky Nelson books.
Favorite vampire movie?
I don't really have a favorite vampire movie, although I did like the first Blade and going way back, Frank Langella's Dracula was sexy as hell. But I can't see myself watching even those movies more than once, which is what I usually do with my favorite movies.
