Q: In December, you were in London for a week. Did you do any research for your books while you were there? If so, can you tell us a bit about what you were researching?
A: I try to get to London at least once a year for a research trip “to fill the creative well,” so to speak. Usually, I go in the spring, but this year I really wanted to do a Christmas visit, in part because A Rogue By Any Other Name has a bit of a Christmas feel to it.

“Immersed in Pleasure” by Tiffany Reisz (erotic, Harlequin, March 2012, $2.99, 213kb): I read lots of erotic romance, and frankly, it isn’t often that I’m surprised by them. But a virgin, mermaid heroine? That certainly isn’t the norm. And, in her latest Harlequin Spice Brief “Immersed in Pleasure,” author Tiffany Reisz creates a watery world where these virgin mermaids tantalize and seduce.
Beneath an exclusive club resides a hidden world where a powerful businessman reigns over an underground fantasy world where women work as mermaids. The women are treated like queens. In return, they must remain virgins, have scales tattooed on their legs, swim in a large pool and flirt with the patrons. When they choose to lose their virginity, they lose their mermaid status.

“Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman” by JB Lynn (contemporary, Avon Impulse, February 2012, $7.99, 400pp)
For those who might be looking for some levity to balance out the craziness of life, “Confessions of a Slightly Neurotic Hitwoman” by JB Lynn might be just the thing. Think Stephanie Plum (from Janet Evanovich’s Plum series), Charley Davidson (from Darynda Jones’ books) and Mrs. Smith (character played by Angelina Jolie in the movie, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”) rolled up into the hilarious Maggie Lee who will have readers wondering if their friends might be moonlighting as bumbling hitmen and hitwomen. Be prepared to laugh, to shake your head in amazement and to root for this killer in training.

Q: "Fever" is your debut book. It features Teague Creek, a man unjustly imprisoned as part of a wider government conspiracy. Can you give us some background?
A: A mysterious explosion at a military warehouse injuries a team of seven hazmat firefighters, killing one. The contents of the building, extremely confidential and dangerous radioactive chemicals used by the Department of Defense in secret scientific experiments, have inflicted the team with various paranormal abilities. Abilities the government wants to study covertly. Abilities the team wants to understand and expose. With military advancement and national power at risk on one side and personal health and freedom at stake on the other, each group is fighting for precious stakes.
FEVER is about one of the seven firefighters, Teague Creek, convicted of a murder he didn’t commit, framed by a government threatened by his prying questions into the warehouse explosion.
