Genre- Paranormal Romance
Magick is real. And there is a secret world complete with its own agency, Veritas, to control those who would wield their power over “regulars”, or threaten the secrecy that keeps them all safe from the persecution that nearly destroyed them. For Cassie, a mixed blood witch, it’s the only world she’s ever known though she’s never embraced her role as agent for Veritas. For Drew, a witch born to a non-magickal family, it answers so many of his questions. It is also the cause of so much loss and pain. And now, as he and Cassie attempt to find his missing brother, rumored to be working with a rogue witch and cult leader, it threatens to take the last of his family. Or will magick save it?
What do you think makes a good story?
Characters people can relate to and who have quirks that make them feel more 3 dimensional. It’s so tough to come up with someone who is entirely original for an avid reader. But if someone is a stereotype I can be intrigued if they have little details that make them more interesting. A fetish for collecting watches, always drive the same car, speech impediment, limp we want to know where it originated. Something different.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A horse trainer, veterinarian, or wildlife biologist studying elephants in Africa. Started college as a wildlife biologist but decided I didn’t want to go so far from home and family.
What are your favorite TV shows?
I rarely watch tv. When I’m in the mood for tv I end up going on Netflix and bingeing on old action movies or the rare rom com.
What songs are most played on your Ipod?
Pandora’s Snow Patrol station is my favorite right now because it keeps me mellow while my life is wild with work, new house, kid, dog, etc.
What is your favorite meal?
I’m gluten free so I eat a ton of salad. When I splurge, I really like a petite filet with a side of sauteed onions and maybe some grilled veggies and red potatoes.
What group did you hang out with in high school?
Pretty shy so I hung out with a few close friends, which is how I still prefer to be. A few good friends that are all different so we we aren’t really a group. I do Muay Thai so there are fighters, writers of course, and coworkers.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
Every day when I come home from work I take a glass of red out onto the patio and sit while the dog runs around in the yard. Birds fly around, butterflies, the dog chases whatever and chews sticks. Sometimes I listen to music but sometimes I just sit. It’s wonderfully peaceful and lets me shift gears from a hectic office job.
What would you consider to be the best book you have ever read?
Where the Red Fern Grows
Who should play you in a film?
Morning Person? Or Night Person? How do you know?
Totally a night person but now that I’m in a 9-5 job again I’m struggling to make myself a day side person. It’s been 2 years and I’m just starting to get there.
Thank you, HK, for stopping by and letting us get to know you, it's been fun!!
About the Author-
HK lives in the frozen hinterlands of the far North. The long, cold months provide ample opportunity to hunker down with her computer and create adventures far more enticing than scraping ice and getting frostbite.
Between books HK reads voraciously. Anything with a good plot and compelling characters are her broad parameters. One is as likely to catch her with a copy of Don Quixote as with the latest Kristen Ashley.
When not writing or wowing the corporate world by day, HK practices martial arts, plays with her dogs and matches wits with her teen. Next winter she intends to brush up on her Spanish and escape the cold for somewhere more tropical.
