BLURB/WITCH’S FIRE/BOOK FIVE/SHAY
In a world where magic is dying―two people meet under unusual circumstances…
Realm of light―New to this witchy stuff, Kirrah Walker crashes her broom into a stranger and knocks him unconscious. Feeling guilty, she takes him home with her and nurses him back to health. However, she soon discovers a terrible secret―the stranger is on a mission to assassinate a witch. Now Kirrah must decide if she’ll set him free or keep him tied to the headboard of her bed…
World of darkness―Prince Stry, future King of Ru-Noc awakens to find he’s not only a captive, but captivated by the charming witch who flutters around him like a nervous butterfly. Her magick is wild and so out of control, he knows in his heart he should steal her soul, but kissing Kirrah is habit-forming.
Kirrah and Stry―magical beings who must face the fear of their past, acknowledge their future and trust in destiny in a world gone mad…
3. What age did you discover writing?
I was fifteen when the creative urge to write a book struck me…I have no clue where this sudden desire to write a novel came from and I had no idea what I was doing. (Laughs) But I put the words to paper and my first book in a very rough draft was born. What is your earliest work about? Oh, even back in those early days, I loved the western setting. Although today I prefer the contemporary western romance, back then, it was a real western, but still a romance titled The Guns of Big Red. Actually, series I’m working on now, the Angels of Deadwood Gulch is based on the original works of my first novel.
4. Who has inspired you as an author?
Linda Howard, Christine Feehan, and Elizabeth Lowell. I think I’ve read just about everything these ladies have written.
5. What’s the most interesting comment you have received about your books?
Oh, this is a good one…The most interesting question I’m asked about my books is: Where do you come up with your love scenes, are they based on the sexual relationship you have with your husband?…My answer?…I’m not telling…(Giggles)
6. Do you have a specific time or place that you write?
I like to write in the early hours of morning when the creative juices are flowing and it’s all quiet and peaceful. The phone hasn’t started to ring and the dogs aren’t waiting to be let outside every five minutes…Laughs.
7. What’s next for you?
I have a couple of new series in the works…As I mentioned, the Angels of Deadwood Gulch series and I have a brand new paranormal romance series, The Gray Mortuary series I’m just getting into. Plus, my agent is beating on the doors of some NY publishing houses. Wish me luck with this venture…And don’t forget, I also write contemporary western romances under the pen name, Jaydyn Chelcee. Those books can be found in print at Amazon and in E-format at Fictionwise and Barnes and Noble.
