All Sydney Kildare wants is a minute in the slow lane, some time to decide where she’s going with her vampire lover, Malcolm Kelly. But after sitting out the last battle, the powerful Master Bronson is giving orders again, and he isn’t above blackmailing his former courier to get what he wants.

With Mal sent to track a vicious killer, Syd is forced to infiltrate a pharmaceutical company responsible for a drug that turns vampires into real monsters. She’s unprepared and alone, but fiercely determined. If her investigation doesn’t satisfy the Master, Malcolm will pay the price. A wrong turn throws her into the middle of a vampire power play. Caught between twisting forces, with their freedom at stake, she’ll have to decide what’s more important: love, power or revenge. But choosing what feels right might turn out all wrong.

Q) What inspired you to write this story? 
It wasn’t so much a lightbulb over the head inspiration as a pretty basic need to entertain myself. Which is my motivation for most things I do in life, to be honest.

Q) How long did it take you to write? 
This was a tough one. I usually finish a first draft in about two and a half months. I wrote for about two months, grew frustrated, and moved on to writing a complete, separate novel before coming back to this one. By then, I’d figured out how to make this story bigger and more dangerous, and really committed to heightening the romance. Total writing and editing time? Probably seven months. Total time with this novel on deck? A little over a year.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing? 
I love capturing surprising scenes – revelations, humor, the awakening of strong emotions and the testing of character.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing? 
Doubt. Writing is a massive act of faith, and when doubts creep in about lines and plot twists or whether the story will ever sell, it’s like an anchor has been wrapped around your hands. The words become hard to make, and that leads to frustration and more doubt. Luckily I’ve got a bit of a goldfish brain when it comes to doubt. I’m usually able to reset myself fairly quickly.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why? 
Oh, wow. Well, someone alive to start with. I don’t want to be a famous zombie. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, I think. Full of exuberance and wonder and deep, deep intelligence. That choice is made with the hope that I’d hold on to some comprehension of complex scientific principles when I reverted back to myself.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it? 
Nosy question! Lol. I think it’s a bag of wheat germ. And it’s on the top shelf, in the back, on the left.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future? 
Action, adventure, and romance – in that order. I have two novels drafted in separate worlds – science fiction rather than fantasy – which I hope to be announcing before too long.
