Ursa Unearthed by JL Madore

JL Madore, lover of family, animals and chocolate has a soft spot for romance and a hot button for sexy stories. She didn't find writing so much as it found her. Waking each morning with a vivid cast of characters tangled in chaos in her head, it seemed essential to capture them on the page.

Mika’s life has never been normal, but it’s hers.

After being told by the Great Spirit to stand up for the Earth Mother’s children and “save the great species from extinction,” she buries herself in an investigative journalism career hunting down poachers and exposing illegal trade in wildlife exotics. A survivor by nature, she would rather fight injustice than maneuver the hassles and heartache of relationships anyway.

When danger suddenly finds her unprepared, Mika’s perception of her life is shattered and she is hurled into a realm of magic and murder she does not understand. Seduced by Bruin, the powerful and sexy warrior who saves her life, Mika is catapulted into a world where Were-creatures and Scourge assassins threaten not only her life but her heart as well.

With the boundary between worlds crumbling, Mika realizes that her destiny to save the great species will draw her deeper into a reality more terrifying to her than anything she has faced before.

Trusting in love.

Q) What inspired you to write this story? 
This is book two of five and a natural continuation from book one 'Blaze Ignites'. I love series novels and especially a series that focuses almost exclusively on a core group of characters. You really get to know them that way.

Q) How long did it take you to write? 
I wrote it in 6 or 7 months of a yearlong writing class. We met every two weeks to hone our skills, listen and learn from the others in the class and get swept away by the freefall writing prompts the facilitators gave us. It's my favourite way to write.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing? 
The mysterious connections that just happen near the end of the story that you didn't intentionally plant, but somehow your subconscious mind put there for you to discover right when you needed it. It's an awesome moment and if I'm lucky, happens once or twice a book.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing? 
Editing to deadline when I have stories buzzing in my head.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why? 
I think I'd be Diana Gabaldon so I could be on set in Scotland watching my novel and characters come to life. That's my end goal. Seeing my characters on TV or at the movies.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it? 
There are a couple purple popsicles in the back of the freezer. I'd guess two years old.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future? 
In the Scourge Survivor Series: Book 3 – Torrent of Tears is in edits. Book 4 – Blind Spirit is being written. I also have a dark paranormal that I've been shopping around to publishers, but everyone says Paranormal isn't trending right now, so no Angels and Demons. Meh. If I don't sell it, I'll self-pub those three. Oh, and I'm also writing a women's fiction loosely framed around the year I lived in Panama. Lots on the go.
