Her latest book is the paranormal romance, A Hunter’s Passion.
I’ve always loved the paranormal. Magic, danger, excitement…but add in a
little romance, and this genre can take your breath away.
The big question of the day is how did you get a book deal with Harlequin? Can you take us through the steps?
The most important step is reading. You have to know what the publisher
is interested in and what they're looking for. I did the appropriate
research and found out what they were looking for in their novels.
Afterward, it's a lot of polishing, and a lot of hoping.
In A Hunter’s Passion, there is a love interest. Can you tell us about that?
Sure! Jenna Sinclair and Ryker Bennett are the main characters and the
love interest. These two have quite the romantic history with one
another, but once Jenna learns of her paranormal heritage, she leaves
him as a means of protecting not only herself but Ryker as well. Jenna’s
and Ryker’s relationship was rather fun to write about. They are the
epitome of forbidden love.
Wow, this book sounds hot. How did you come up with the storyline?
Gwen: When I start plotting stories, it always begins as one particular
scene—something about the main character that I envision to establish a
feel for them. For A Hunter’s Passion, it began with the image of Ryker
in bed, and his phone rings. When he checks the screen, he’s upset to
see Jenna’s name scroll across it—his next target. That was all I had to
go on. In the story, it doesn’t happen as such, but that little
imaginary image started it all.
Every book has that on the edge of your seat drama. What part of your book would have me glued to the pages?
There are a couple scenes that come to mind. Without giving too much
away, the final conflict had me on the edge of my seat. Not only is
their drama, but a great deal of character development for Jenna.
However, one other scene jumps out at me and that’s the moment when
Ryker has to decide whether or not to kill Jenna. His internal struggle
gets me every time.
Is there anything you’d like to tell your fans?
Thank you so much for reading A Hunter’s Passion! I sincerely hope you
enjoyed it. I’m hoping to expand on the universe by giving each of the
brother’s their own stories. Hope to see you for the next one.
