Q: What's your inspiration for this story?
I'm an avid sports fan--tennis, football, hockey, auto racing. You name it and I probably follow it! I've always enjoyed infusing sports into my stories (And it doesn't hurt that most athletes are in the best shape of their lives, making for sexy leading men and ladies!). That's not to say that everything...

Q: What's your inspiration for the series? What is the central theme that holds all the books together?
This thirteen book series actually began as a single story. One book. But there are three mystical identical sisters who are descended of a three thousand year old line they can trace, and a curse all have lived under all those millennia. So Mystic Thunder became the first of a trilogy that includes...

Q: Please tell us more about the PRYMAL series. What is your inspiration for this series?
A nightmare *nodding convincingly*--cross my heart, yada, yada.
Ever have one of those awful dreams where you're trapped that repeats and repeats no matter how hard you try to change the ending or wake up? I had been reading three genres at once: a Regency, a shifter, and a SEAL suspense.

Q: What's your inspiration for the Blackbird Series? What is the common thread among all the books?
IVY (Book 1) was inspired by a crazy dream I had after watching too much Strike Back. The series developed because I wanted to tell the whole story of the Blackbird pack. The main common thread, I suppose, is that the entire series is connected in some way by Ivy herself, though she isn't the main...
The Gull Motel
by Amie Denman
Q: What's your inspiration for this book?
I love to travel, and I find hotels and motels fascinating. I love to stay in fancy resort hotels, but there is something fascinating about those old "mom and pop" places you see along the road. They must have a lot of stories to tell! There really is a motel called The Gull Motel in the town where I...
The Legacy of Buchanan's Crossing
by Rhea Rhodan
Q: What is your inspiration for this story?
A rough draft of the book's first scene arose during a session using tarot cards as writing prompts. Here's a link to a blog post I wrote about the process: http://clarissajohal.blogspot.com/2014/02/mixed-up-tuesday-guest-blogger.html

Q: What's your inspiration for this story? I believe there are lots of Cupid stories out there. What fresh element did you include here?
The heroine, Stephanie, is a young woman who is cancer survivor and she has a bucket list:
1. Become a sexual person.
2. Have too much wine.
3. Learn how to masturbate.
4. Lose her virginity.
NOT on her list is falling in love.

Q: RESOLUTIONS is the first book in the Honor Guard series. What's the series about? What connects all the books in the series?
The Honor Guard series is actually the name of a line for Decadent Publishing, mostly featuring hero/heroine who are military, cops, and other high danger types. There are several other authors who write books for the Honor Guard series and they are not connected to RESOLUTIONS. I enjoyed the characters...
Tearing Down Walls
by Deanndra Hall
Q: TEARING DOWN WALLS is the second in the Love Under Construction series. Where did you get the inspiration for this series? What common thread connects the books?
I'm a Kentucky native, so Louisville was a great setting. I'd had Nikki in my head for at least twelve years and I knew her background but I'd never had a story for her. And I'd gotten tired of the "billionaire and shop girl" premise so common in romance. I wanted real guys, guys who worked hard and...

Q: REBEL LOVE is the second in the Heart's Temptation series. What's your inspiration for this series? What common element holds the series together? What is this series about?
This series was inspired by a book I found years ago at a library sale. I read it and became hooked on the late 19th century--it was an age of tremendous change, fascinating people and beautiful fashion. I knew I had to write a series set in that time period, and that's how Heart's Temptation was born....
by Ann Gimpel
Q: DRAGON MAID is the second in the Dragon Lore series. When you started this series, did you already have a clear vision of the books and characters you wanted to write about? Or did that evolve over time?
I had a clear vision of the key plot lines for the series, of Kheladin waking in his cave and his bonded mage, Lachlan. I also envisioned Maggie, Lachlan's mate. (Read more about To Love a Highland Dragon, Dragon Lore #1). I knew the series would have three books and roughly what would be in each, but...
