Krissy is a full time writer, reader and lover of all things romance.
As a child surrounded by the great outdoors, life was full of adventure that fueled an overactive imagination and ignited a passion for storytelling. Whether it be dolls, or running free through the wooded areas surrounding her home, playtime always included a tormented villain, a damsel in dis-tress and a larger than life hero.
After relentless encouragement from friends and family, she finally put the characters in her head to pen and paper. The only thing she loves more than curling up with a steamy romance novel, is cozying up to her desk and writing her own sexy adventures to share with others.
To save her soul, he’ll let her burn.
Grayce has been on the run for years. Having escaped an abusive relationship with a violent psychopath, she is trying to rebuild her life one small step at a time. Things are going well until Zander crosses her path, badass and sexy as hell. His presence awakens heated desires she long ago buried. Last thing Grayce wants is a man, and the way her body reacts to Zander scares her more than the threat of being found.
Tyr will do anything to get his little dove back. She is a Beacon, and her raw, burning energy gives him power and strength. More than the evil that already compels him. But a blond giant of a man hovers protectively around her. No matter. He’ll play with him too.
When Zander rescues Grayce from Tyr’s first attempt to reclaim her, he reveals his superhuman abilities. Power that Grayce also has, but has yet to understand. As predestined soul mates, Zander must help Grace control her rage before her fire threatens to destroy everyone and everything in her path. But his true challenge is more than that—to show her it’s possible to trust and love again.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
First, let me just say thank you for having me!
It’s funny, Aflame didn’t start out as a paranormal romance. It started out as an anti- BDSM story. I’d read my first BDSM book and hated the way it made me feel. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against it, I just didn’t understand it at the time. I wanted to explore what would happen to a DOM/Submissive relationship gone wrong. From there, it morphed into a paranormal because the heroine was so damaged, she needed a larger than life, superhuman hero to balance her.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
Aflame took over a year to write. I worked full-time when I started the story so it was very slow going.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
I can be, do, say, create anything I want. I get to unleash the beast! Battle my inner demons through stories. Make people laugh, cry, squirm. I LOVE it so much I want to burst sometimes.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
Hmm…that’s a tough one. The writing process? I’d say writing a synopsis. Those are tough for me. Writing as a career? My least favorite thing is trying to make people understand that I am actually working. I’m not sitting around doing nothing all day. This is the hardest job I’ve ever had and it’s not 8 hours a day, then you clock out and go home. It’s 24 hours a day, seven days a week. No vacation, no holiday breaks.
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
I wouldn’t mind living inside Kurt Sutter’s head for one day. He terrifies me, but in a good way. Maybe some of his creative genius would rub off on me.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
My Sexy Boyfriend is a control freak chef. He rules the kitchen with an iron fist. I’m pretty sure there is nothing old in my fridge. If there was, it would be on purpose. It wouldn't be called old or expired, it would be “aging”. LOL
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
Aflame is book one in the Apotheosis series. Aglow, book two is in the revision stages. Books three and four are stashed somewhere in my brain cavity. How to Kill Your Boss, an erotic romantic suspense novel is coming out in July. I had so much fun writing that story, I’m considering making it a series as well.
