Welcome to Visiting Authors today, Denise! Congrats on your new release.
What was your inspiration for Scent of Betrayal?
Scent of Betrayal is the second in my Shifters of Rishard series about an alien race of shifters now living here on Earth. This book focuses on the European clan and the turmoil left after the first book, Bloodlines. I’ve always been fascinated by the supernatural so I added my spin by making them aliens and incorporated how they deal with being alien and shifters in modern times and the digital age.
Do you find inspiration in your own life for your writing?
I believe it’s inevitable certain aspects of my own life will seep into my writing, but I think this happens more often in my contemporary romance books than my paranormal romance ones.
What was the most interesting part of the story to research?
The most interesting and fun aspect was researching some Scottish slang to sprinkle throughout the book for authenticity. I always enjoy researching a new setting and culture for a book.
Any new projects on the horizon?
I’ve got a few coming out:
He is Watching, a novella for the Deerbourne Inn series at The Wild Rose Press
My First My Last My Only, a small-town contemporary romance
Legacy of Destruction is my current WIP and the sequel to Legacy of Magic
A Shifter, A Mate, A Conspiracy.
Wolf shifter Davis Campbell is on a mission. His job is to babysit a woman from a rival clan. He believes all he has to do is get her back to Scotland. What he doesn't figure on is her possibly being his mate.
Bethany Leitner, an owl shifter, has been betrayed, attacked, framed, and left for dead. Trust in herself and others is hard to find. So when her self-appointed guardian begins to bark orders, she is ready to show her talons.
