Guest Author - Stacey Kennedy

Hello all you Shapeshifter lovers out there,
Please help me welcome back, this Sunday's special guest author, Stacey Kennedy.
I love the cover and the name of your upcoming release, Everlasting Bite - yum! 

Did you always want to become a writer?

No, I did not. In fact, I never had dreams of being an author and didn’t even know I was capable of it. I read lots, but never had ambitions to write a story. Until this one day in December 2009. A story came to me―one character that grabbed hold of my thoughts and wouldn’t let go until I wrote her life. So, I dug in, wrote it, and was surprised that it was actually good. And thus was born The Magical Sword Series. From there, it’s history and now I’ve got a bunch of released under my belt.

How did your family react to fact that you also write romance novels? Has your family read your books?

My family has been a huge support. I think at first they were surprised by my sudden interest in writing. But after they read one, they just kept asking for more. Always a good sign. Truthfully, my family has only read The Magical Sword series and The Blue Bloods series. My other projects tend to dapple more into erotica, and let’s just say, I’d rather my mother not read what her daughter is capable of imaging.

Most authors are also avid readers. Is this the case with you? If so, who are some of your favorites?

This list could go on and on. But some of my top authors that I will by whatever they write are, Katie MacAllister, Jeaniene Frost, Keri Arthur, Charlaine Harris, and Mary Janice Davidson. As you can tell, I love light-hearted paranormal that’s got some kick-ass heroines in it.

Do you find it difficult at times to write love scenes?

Hell no!! Love scenes are by far the easiest for me to write. To live out your fantasies, to do things you’d never imagine doing, it’s just a bucket of fun! It doesn’t matter if it’s in the first person or third, the woman’s perspective or the man’s, those scenes always come easy for me.

What is your favorite book from the books that you have written so far? Who are your favorite hero and heroine, and why?

Favorite book, that’s impossible to answer. I love each of my stories for all different reasons. But I can tell you I have a favorite hero. Briggs. An Everlasting Bite is his and Rynn’s first story. I tend to write powerful Alpha men who can be a bit on the arrogant side. But Briggs has none of that. Yes, he is strong and protective over Rynn, but he’s so sweet that he seriously melts my heart. I will never grow tired of writing him.

Tell us a bit about your new release.

Above I introduced you to the characters in An Everlasting Bite, but to give you more of an understanding of what this story entails, here’s the blurb.

Love is born between strangers, yet built upon a bond soul deep―one Alpha’s vow to protect his mate from looming danger, all the while, mending her soul and stirring her wolfish desires.

A vicious werewolf attack in Plymouth, Minnesota leaves a young woman violated, bitten and now, transformed into werewolf. But Rynn Murphy doesn’t have to face this transformation alone—she has her mate by her side. And the charming Briggs―Beta to the Patriarch, Valor―is eager to ease her into this new life and mend her battered soul.

With only weeks to adjust to her new fur, Rynn, follows Briggs while he assists in locating the daughter of the Montana’s Alpha, who was abducted from her home. But this journey is not without danger. And soon, they discover the ones who have taken this young wolf do not want her found and will stop at nothing to keep her hidden. Or so it may seem, as bodies begin to drop around them, the murderous attempts start to appear more as a hit than a smoke screen—leaving only one question, who is the intended target…

I've got the opposite problem -- I struggle over the sex scenes. You've earned my admiration and envy for saying you have no trouble with the "hot bits." Can I hire you to write my sex scenes for me?

Stacey Kennedy said...

Thanks Kelly!!

LOL, Pat, I'd love too! I think I enjoy writing them as much as I do reading them :)
