BLOOD OF THE DEMON is the first book in Demons of Infernum series, which was previously released in 2011 with a different cover. After being out just one year, why the decision to give it new covers? Although I have to admit the new covers are very "eye-catching".
When my publisher decided to re-release the series, they thought a new, more eye-catching cover was in order. I agreed with them, and I have to say they did a fantastic job! It’s all I can do to keep from licking the new cover, lol.
For readers who haven't heard of the series before, what is it about (other than obviously sexy demons)?
My series starts with the basic premise that all the supernatural beings we think of as mythological creatures really do exist, with a twist. There are multiple dimensions, each housing its own species of beings, and travel is possible between the dimensions by use of portals (something most humans have no clue about).
Keegan, the hero of BLOOD OF THE DEMON, is a half demon, interdimensional bounty hunter from a world called Infernum. He’s tracking an evil demon, Mammon, who wants to start the apocalypse on Earth by getting his hands on the Book of the Dead, an ancient spellbook allowing for the creation of an army of the undead who’ll devour those on Earth. Keegan has been sent to stop Mammon by any means necessary, even if it means destroying Brynn Meyers, the key to the apocalypse. But Keegan never expected that the woman he might have to kill, would be the very one he couldn’t resist.
How would you describe your style as a writer in 160 characters or less?
My books in this series are like The Mummy meets Supernatural, with lots of steamy romance!
Lets get a little more personal, what are five things that people don't know and would find quirky about you?
Oh, let’s see:
(1) I think ferrets are the greatest animals ever!
(2) I’m mostly vegetarian, yet I hate most vegetables.
(3) I love the supernatural, but I can’t watch scary movies. They terrify me.
(4) I put my ice cream in the microwave before eating it. (Just 20 or so seconds...softens it right up.)
(5) I love thunderstorms. I find they soothe me.
What are you currently working on?
I just wrapped up For Want of an Angel, Book 3 in my Fallen Warriors series. I’ve got three more books planned for that series. I’m also working on Call of the Siren, the fourth and final book in the Demons of Infernum series.

About the author:
Formally trained as a corporate and real estate lawyer, I practiced law for 5 years before finally admitting to myself that negotiating contracts wasn’t nearly as fun as dreaming up stories. As an avid reader of romances and supernatural stories, I knew I wanted to write urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Tales of vampires, demons, and other supernatural beings ensued.
I’m currently working on the Demons of Infernum series, a series of paranormal romance novels featuring four sexy half-demon brothers and their reluctant heroines.
When not writing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son in our home state of Florida, as well as searching out things that go bump in the night. I still haven’t found any, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
If I ever do find evidence of the supernatural, it remains to be seen whether I’ll jump around in excitement, or run screaming in terror (but I’m betting on the latter)!

Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she's also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon's Most Wanted List.And no one wants her more than Keegan's father.Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he'll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics-the far deadlier, uncontrollable half-when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he'll never be able to resist.
