SF BC Hi, Marissa. Thank you so much for allowing me to interview you. I am honored and very pleased to have you here on my blog.

 

 

Would you take a moment and introduce yourself to us?

There isn’t a whole lot to tell.

Born and raised in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, I now reside about an hour from Washington, D.C.

I have a wonderful supportive husband, Thomas. He is my other half and allows me to stay home and pursue my writing. My writing buddies Max (a cocker spaniel) and Dawne (a beagle mix) are always around to listen to me bounce ideas off them. They might not be able to answer, but they are helpful in their own ways.

I am the owner of Sizzling PR and co-owner of Ruby Lioness Press.

Would you mind telling my readers a little more about your book, Snowy Fate?

Fate always knows when you’re ready for love.

The past is catching up with Aspyn Layton. The father she never knew passed away and she is left to deal with his estate. An unexpected snowstorm has her stranded at the one place she didn’t want to be—her father’s house—with a naked man.

Damon Andrews has a secret, one he shared with Aspyn’s father. He must convince Aspyn there is more to life then what she knows. How will she react when she finds out he is a mountain lion, and she is his mate? Their fates are intertwined.

SF BCI see that this is your first book debut. How did you feel when your book was finally published?

Snowy Fate is my first stand-alone book, but I was published in two anthologies with Turquoise Morning Press. The Twelve Seductive Days of Christmas, is in the Believe anthology and Secret Valentine, in the Be Mine, Valentine anthology.

It is an amazing feeling when you find out your story is going to be published. Something that is hard to put into work. Your excited but at the same time there are nerves hidden just below the surface.

How did you come up with the idea for the book?

Honestly I’m not sure. Sometimes things just come to me. I was sitting in my office trying to work on another project, and instead of staring at the blinking cursor, I was watching it snow out my office window. One thing led to another and I closed the project I had opened and jumped into Snowy Fate. I couldn’t tear myself away from it and the first draft was completed in less than a week.

What other writing genres do you dabble in?

I started out writing sweet romance, and Snowy Fate is my first paranormal story. I have more planned in the paranormal genre.

What’s in store next for you? Are you able to tell us anything about any of your upcoming projects?

Right now I am working on book two and three for the Live series. The first book, Learning to Live, is already out.

Blurb for Learning to Live: Meg Harper is tired of living in a box created by her overprotective brothers because of her ability to see guardian angels . . .

Jay Wilder a lion shifter so wrapped up in the guilt of not being able to save his friend that he might lose everything…

Can Meg and Jay save each other or are they destined to live half a life?

What would you say is your dream getaway vacation?

Spending time at the beach. I love hearing the waves crash onto the shore. It is so peaceful, especially off season when there are very few people.

LTL BCWhat’s your favorite book and why?

That’s a hard question. My favorite book changes. I can tell you my favorite series . . . that would be the In Death series by J.D. Robb. It wraps me up and keeps in the world of Eve and Roarke until the end. Then leaves me craving for more. I can’t get enough of those books, and it is my go to series if I need a pick me up or to get out of a reading rut.

What do you in your spare time?

Spare time? What is that? I’m not sure I heard those words before. Spare time is few and far between. Between writing, Sizzling PR, and Ruby Lioness Press my free time is limited. But when I do have some I can be found reading.

Do you take the time to outline your stories or do you just go with the flow and see where it takes you?

I have tried to outline in the past but they are never few detailed and somehow always get off track Going with the flow seems to work for me.

 

 

Thank you so much for such a lovely interview, Marissa. I’ve enjoyed it very much and hope my readers will too. I wish you the very best with what you do and look forward to more of your future works.

MD PictureAbout The Author:

Born and raised in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, I now reside about an hour from Washington, D.C. I am a lady who likes to keep busy, and am always busy doing something. With two different college degrees, I believe you are never done learning.

Being the first daughter to an avid reader, this gave me the advantage of learning to read at a young age. Since learning to read I have always had my nose in a book. It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I started writing down the stories I came up with.

I am blessed with a wonderful supportive husband, Thomas. He is my other half and allows me to stay home and pursue my writing. My writing buddies Max (a cocker spaniel) and Dawne (a beagle mix) are always around to listen to me bounce ideas off them. They might not be able to answer, but they are helpful in their own ways.
