Can you introduce yourself to my readers a little?
I’m the author (debut author, actually) of the Sweetblood series, new vampire romance from HQN. Bonded by Blood came out February 2011 and Embraced by Blood comes out July 2011. I live in the Seattle area on a couple of acres with my family and a bunch of animals, including my show horse who hasn’t seen a lot of shows lately because of my writing schedule.
Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?
Far beneath the streets of the city, in an unknown part of Underground Seattle, a team of vampire Guardians fights to protect humans from Darkbloods—vicious members of their race who kill like their ancestors and sell the blood on the black market. The rarest, called Sweetblood, commands the highest price.
Will this be your first RT or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
This will be my first RT convention. I’ve heard so many fun stories and seen lots of pictures–I’m really excited. Plus, it’ll be my first book signing, which I understand is insanely huge.
Are you speaking on any panels during RT? Are there any you are looking forward to?
No, I’m not speaking on any panels. Because there are so many great workshops, I have no idea how I’m going to choose which ones to attend.
If someone were wanting to meet up with you at RT, who should they look for?
First of all, I love meeting new people! I pretty much look like my picture unless I decide to use my straight iron that day or I don’t wear my contacts. And since all this author stuff is new to me, if a reader told me they liked my book, don’t be surprised to see a few tears.
