Primani by Laurie Olerich‏

Laurie Olerich is the author of the new Primani series. Part urban fantasy, part romance, part paranormal...Three things she can’t live without! Laurie spent most of her life in the Northeastern United States and in Western Europe. She now lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her son and Dalmatian duo, Domino and Rambo. Desperate to escape the heat, she lives vicariously through Mica and her Primani by setting their adventures in the mountain coolness of New England and the rainy days of London. Before throwing caution to the wind and diving into a writing career, Laurie dedicated 20 years to her country by serving in the United States Air Force. Much of her time was spent around men with guns and cool toys...this explains her obsession with both.


Mica Thomas is Sean O'Cahan's worst nightmare. Part angel, all Primani, he's a ruthless protector with unusual talents. Jaded by the weakness of humans, he takes a hands-off approach to his charges. His job's to protect her. That's all. But Mica's got other ideas. He's strong, but she's stronger. Will his one moment of weakness destroy them both?

Mica doesn’t believe in quaint notions of fate and destiny. She’s a live-in-the-moment kind of girl until she’s attacked and left for dead. When Sean and his friends appear out of thin air to rescue her, Mica knows there’s more to them than they’re saying. Secrets and lies pile up but she can’t walk away from him.

As the clock ticks, Mica is drawn deeper into the Primani world until there’s no way out.

Tick-tock. Time is running out. What happens when it does?

Q) What inspired you to write this story? 
I wanted to write my life story, but realized after chapter one that my life was way too boring for a book. Sure, there were cool moments here and there, but overall...not too exciting. So I decided to create the life I wish I’d had. Primani is all about action, secrets, supernatural powers...and hot men with bad attitudes but cool toys. Yeah, this is totally the life I wanted!

Q) How long did it take you to write? 
The first draft took 60 days of writing or about 4 months. I ended up starting the second book, Call the Lightning, immediately after I finished the draft. Halfway through it, I went back and re-wrote the first half of Primani. That added another 2 months with the rewrite and full edits. It’s my first book so I agonized over every little detail!

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing? 
I love creating the world and building characters. I totally lose myself in their adventures and find that the characters write their own scenes. That’s the coolest part of writing: sitting back to read a scene and not knowing how the characters ended up where they did!

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing? 
It’s hard to end the story. It’s like saying goodbye. I cry at the end of each book.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why? 
Indiana Jones hands down. He’s brilliant, resourceful, lucky, and gorgeous...what’s not to like?

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it? 
A block of Romano cheese that’s probably three months old. It’s not green yet, should I toss it?

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future? 
More books! Call the Lightning is out now and Stone Angels is in editing. It’ll be released in Jan 14. These two will wrap up Mica’s story and lead the way for the next three books. I will probably keep writing urban fantasy because it makes me happy!
