I’m thrilled to have fellow Liquid Silver author Rosanna over to visit today to talk about her writing and her fabulous, scorching hot, Gemini Island Shifter series. (Seriously, it’ll melt your thermometer!)
“WRITING WITH MY SON”
Thanks so much to Elle for hosting me today. I’m thrilled to be here.
I’m here as part of my blog tour for my new release Predator’s Fire, Gemini Island Shifters 5. However, before I share a bit about the book, I’d like to tell you a bit about my writing partner. He’s pretty special, and my guess is no other romance author writes with her tween son. That’s right, my 11-year-old son Andrew considers himself my partner.
Let me explain why. Andrew is a creative kid. In fact, I have hopes he might become a writer himself one day. He once penned a story called “Blood Alley.” It was freaking awesome. It had a dark witch, homeless orphans and lots of blood and gore. At the end, I believe all the orphans were dispatched in a gruesome manner. Sad, I know, but still rather edgy for his age (at the time, he was about 8).
When I was first published, Andrew took a keen interest in my work. Of course, I never share the naughty bits with him. However, he peruses all my covers, gives his opinions and when I started the Gemini Island Shifters series, he wanted to be involved. I allowed him this opportunity on book 2, Predator’s Serenade. Now, the writing is all mine, but Andrew named one of the characters (the teen boy Gunnar) and supplied the kid’s description. I loved talking plot lines with him and with each new book, he offers ideas. Yes, he’s really more of an honorary writing partner, but it’s still nice to know he cares.
Andrew is quite fond of all my shifters and was excited to see jaguar shifter Killian Moon get his own book with Predator’s Fire. You see, we’d been discussing Killian for a while. There is a distinct possibility Andrew suggested I kill off some homeless orphans in this book too, but I have gone in a different direction. My son is more of a Stephen King-esque sort of writer, as you can see.
I do have another son, Daniel, who is 13. Although he is polite and smiles when Mom talks about her books, his interest isn’t quite as keen. However, if they ever base an Xbox game on one of my books, I know Daniel will be all over it.
I hope you enjoy Predator’s Fire and the Gemini Island Shifters series.
When Nina Suzuki discovers the body of her best friend Janine, her world turns upside down. Things go from bad to worse when Janine’s corpse seems to transform into that of a large, brown wolf. For the first time, Nina is faced to confront all the clues indicating her BFF was not what she seemed. A letter from the dead woman opens Nina’s eyes to a strange, new world. The same letter warns of a sinister group called the Alpha Brethren, and urges her to find Killian Moon of the Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort on Gemini Island.
Killian Moon is a jaguar shifter and teen mentor at the Ursa Lodge in Northern Ontario. He may be a comfort and inspiration to confused teen shifters, but he also has a fiery past. His past comes back to haunt him when human Nina arrives at the resort, demanding to speak with him. Demanding answers. Can he trust her with knowledge that will not only change her life, but possibly endanger those around him?
As Killian begrudgingly tutors Nina on all things shifter, their mutual curiosity flares into passionate need. Once they touch, once they succumb to desire, there is no going back. Killian realizes Nina is his mate and they both begin to comprehend the terror threatening those on their shifter-friendly island. He is forced to confront the tragedy in his family and determines to protect Nina at all costs.
But can they protect everyone they love from a cult of dangerous shifters, intent on horror and destruction?
“How much longer do I have to wait? I want to see Killian Moon. Now.”
The feminine voice, strangely soft despite its insistence, echoed deep in his being, awakening his jaguar. The great cat roared to life, turned toward the office and inhaled deeply. Its eyes flashed in interest.
Killian breathed in at the same time, catching the scent of cherry blossoms through the door. The sweet perfume, mixed with human outrage, proved a heady distraction, making him forget why he was there. Shaking his head, he tried to dismiss the odd sensation as Ryland opened the door.
The door swung open and the first person he glimpsed was one of the clerks from reception, trying his hardest to placate the unexpected guest. “I’m sure Mr. Snow and Mr. Moon will be right back.”
And then his gaze landed on the petite human. Tapered Asian eyes, so dark and mysterious, but rimmed with circles of exhaustion. Smooth, cinnamon skin hinted at a mixed background. Wearing no makeup, she appeared younger than she must be, but her presence and keen eyes pegged her at around thirty years old. She had a riot of curly, black hair and feminine curves that ought to come with a warning. He could see it now. Beware: this woman’s body will cause insanity in men. Even as she gesticulated at the clerk, her boobs jiggled in such a way his throat went dry.
He pictured her in a corset, her breasts spilling over delicate lace edging, and almost forgot his name.
This Nina Suzuki was damn hot and his jaguar seemed to agree. The animal licked its lips, its golden gaze assessing and appreciating every detail, from her rounded hips to her come-hither rack.
Yes, the creature uttered on a frenzied breath.
