Give us the one to two sentence tagline for your book.
A human fugitive. A possessive alien prince.
What surprised you the most while writing this book?
What surprised me the most was how my imagination started running wild, like a lunatic. The story just made a u-turn into a different direction that I originally planned.
Why did you pick the setting you used for your book?
Science Fiction/Space Opera is one of my favorite genres to write. After not writing anything in this genre for three years, I wanted to reintroduce myself to my readers and to restart a series I’d left unfinished. This story was supposed to be a comeback novella which turned into a trilogy.
What is the sexiest trait of your hero?
Dhahn is the alien prince in this trilogy and his sexiest trait is his compassion which is also his weakness…or so the villain believes.
What is your favorite scene/moment in your book?
My favorite moment in the book is when Dhahn touched Milena’s hair while she is recovering from a near death experience, and she turns her face into his palm, sending a rush up warmth through him.
What scene did you have to cut but wish could have been included?
Haven’t cut any scenes.
Tropes get a bad name, but they’re often the biggest draw for readers. What tropes do you love to write and read?
I suppose the boy meets girl, they don’t get along yet they are attracted to each other. They fall in love while bickering and fighting. I like writing and reading this kind of romance because it adds a little spice.
What are your favorite genres/sub-genres to write in? Are there any you love to read but cannot write in?
Favorites are sci-fi, PNR, epic fantasy. I love to read epic but think I am terrible at creating it.
Which do you love to write best: dialogue, setting, action, love scenes, or other?
All of it, because one cannot exist without the other.
Which do you hate to write: dialogue, setting, action, love scenes, or other?
I’m not sure about hating any part of writing.
Slave is the first book in the Marked for the Alien Prince Trilogy depicting the dramatic adventures of Milena in space. A human running from the law. How did she end up on a distant planet? Milena must defend herself against the alien soldiers who see each human female as free for all. But the Alien prince has other ideas. She belongs to him and his mark is there as evidence of that fact. Note: This book is a part of a serial and ends on a cliffhanger.
Read an Excerpt From Slave: Marked For The Alien Prince
The shuttle zapped out of the bay. Another shuttle moved out behind her and she input another sequence. She was at the mining site within seconds. Alighting the craft, she sprinted up to the soldier who had guarded her while she worked. His eyes flared at her presence, perhaps shocked to see her there. Before he was able to move, she pulled his lasik molecular diffuser from its pouch and aimed at him. Compressing the activation button with the soft pad of her thumb, she watched as the beam bore a hole into his chest.
Before he could slump to the ground, Milena grabbed the guard and brought him in front of her, using him as a shield. Others were gathering as a loud noise echoed through the silence. The soldiers were shouting in their language, alerting the entire troop of danger.
“Mmadụ dị njikere ma dị ize ndụ!” (The human is armed and dangerous) they shouted. “Kpochapụ ya ozugbo.” (Eliminate her at once)
Milena’s brain processed each word, realizing she understood their speech. Something had happened to her and she welcomed the change. Someone aimed their diffuser at her and she quickly returned fire. As they came at her, she rapidly diffused them. It was moments into the fight that she realized that a few soldiers had surrounded her, taking aim at their own.
I have come to the realization that I am a cheesecake-a-holic. Therefore, I will write for cheesecake.
I am a passionate write who believe in the power of the written word. Books change lives, they breathe new life and that prolong life – not only for the reader but for the write too.
I am happy to be living my dream of being an author and I intend to continue providing entertainment for readers years to come.
